The protection of an activated Control Tower makes this action necessary. That airspace would extend from the surface to and including 3,200 feet MSL within a 4.5 mile radius of the Griffiss Airfield, Rome, NY, and within 2 miles each side of bearing 135°/315° from a point at Lat 43°14.03′ N, Long 75°24.42′ W, extending from the 4.5 mile radius zone, to a point 6 miles NW and 6 miles SE of the airport. The class D airspace area would be effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by a notice to airmen. The effective date and time would thereafter be continuously published in the Airport/ Facility Directory. Class D airspace designations for airspace areas extending upward from the surface to and including 3,200 feet MSL are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9P, dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 16, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D airspace designation listed in this document would be published subsequently in the 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 would only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not have significant economic VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:07 Nov 16, 2006 Jkt 211001 impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to Part 71 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR Part 71) to establish Class E-2 airspace 
at Griffiss Airfield, Rome, NY. The opening of a tower and for the 
protection of Instrument Approaches makes this action necessary. 
Controlled airspace extending upward from the surface to the base of 
the overlying controlled airspace is needed to accommodate the SIAPs. 
The class E-2 airspace area would be effective during the specific 
dates and times established in advance by a notice to airmen. The 
effective date and time would thereafter be continuously published in 
the Airport/Facility Directory. Class E-2 airspace designations for 
airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth are 
published in Paragraph 6002 of FAA Order 7400.9P, dated September 1, 
2006, and effective September 16, 2006, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E-2 airspace designation listed in 
this document would be published subsequently in the 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 would only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not 
have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
