SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Wednesday, June 28, 2006, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 
71 to modify Class E airspace at Pierre, SD (71 FR 36724). The proposal 
was to modify controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or 
more above the surface of the earth to contain Instrument Flight Rules 
operations in controlled airspace during portions of the terminal 
operation and while transiting between the enroute and terminal 
environments.
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. 
No comments objecting to the proposal were received. Class E airspace 
designations for airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more 
above the surface of the earth are published in paragraph 6005, and 
airspace areas extending upward from the surface in paragraph 6002, of 
FAA Order 7400.9P dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 
2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 modifies Class E airspace at 
Pierre, SD, to accommodate aircraft executing instrument flight 
procedures into and out of Pierre Regional Airport. The area will be 
depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts.
    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this regulation--(1) Is not a ``significant regulatory 
action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' 
under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 
1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation 
as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter 
that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.
