The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace at Nucla, CO. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using the new RNAV (GPS) SIAP at Hopkins Field. This action would enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at Hopkins Field, Nucla, CO. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 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 this order. The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed 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 proposed rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: E:\FR\FM\20OCP1.SGM 20OCP1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 203 / Friday, October 20, 2006 / Proposed Rules PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

AGENCY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:09 Oct 19, 2006 Jkt 211001 Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. ACTION: SUMMARY: The Departments of Commerce and the Interior jointly administer the Insular Possessions Watch Program. Under this program, insular possessions watch producers may receive duty-free treatment of certain watches imported into the customs territory of the United States. This action invites comments from insular watch producers and interested parties on possible options for revising the maximum total value of watch components per watch and watch movement that are eligible for duty-free entry into the United States under the insular watch program. DATES: Comments must be submitted by November 20, 2006. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be sent to Faye Robinson, Director, Statutory Import Programs Staff, Room 2104, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th and Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20230. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Faye Robinson, (202) 482–3526. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Departments of Commerce and the Interior (the Departments) administer the watch duty-exemption allocations and the watch and jewelry duty-refund benefits for producers in the United States insular possessions (the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands) in accordance with Public Law 97–446, as amended by Public Law 103–465, Public Law 106–36 and Public Law 108–429. Currently, the insular watch program does not allow watch movements and watches assembled from components with a value of more than $35 for watch movements and $800 for watches to receive program duty exemption benefits as set forth in Section 303.14(b)(3) of the Department of Commerce’s regulations (15 CFR 303.14(b)(3)) even if the watch movements and watches have met all other program requirements. On July 25, 2006, we received a letter from the U.S. Virgin Islands Watch & Jewelry Manufacturers Association requesting that the Department of Commerce reexamine the current value limits for watches which are assembled in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Association asserted that the cost of gold has more than doubled in the past year, making it impossible to continue a viable and steady production of gold watches. In light of the foregoing, the Departments would like to receive comment on whether to change the PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 61923 maximum value of watch components per watch and watch movement that are eligible for benefits under the program and, if so, what that value might be. In particular, we are interested in receiving comments on four options: • Leave the maximum value of watch components per watch and watch movement at their current level. • Raise the maximum value of a watch components per watch to $1,250 and watch movement to $50. • Remove any restriction on the value of watch components per watch and watch movement. • Index the maximum value of watch components per watch to the New York spot gold index price per day as reported in the Wall Street Journal and leave the value of the watch movement components at the current level. Persons wishing to comment should submit a signed original copy of comments by the due date. The Departments will consider all comments received by the due date. Comments received after the due date will be considered, if possible, but their consideration cannot be assured.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal

CO. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using the 
new RNAV (GPS) SIAP at Hopkins Field. This action would enhance the 
safety and management of aircraft operations at Hopkins Field, Nucla, 
CO.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 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 this order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed 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

this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when 
promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.
