SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On November 28, 2006 a notice proposing to amend Part 71 of the 
Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR Part 71) by establishing Class D 
airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 3,200 feet 
MSL within a 4.5 mile radius of the Griffiss Airfield, Rome, NY, was 
published in the Federal Register. Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rulemaking by submitting written comments on the 
proposal to the FAA on or before December 29, 2006. No comments to the 
proposal were received. The rule is adopted as proposed. The 
coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North American Datum 
83.

The Rule

    This amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 
CFR Part 71) provides controlled Class D airspace at Griffiss AFB, 
Rome, NY. 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[deg]/
315[deg] from a point at Lat. 43[deg]14.02' N, Long. 75[deg]24.25' 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 15, 
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 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.
