EFFECTIVE DATE: This rule is effective October 30, 2007. Information about the date the Convention will enter into force is provided in 22 CFR 96.17. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Barbara J.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Convention) is a multilateral treaty that provides a framework for the adoption of children habitually resident in one country party to the Convention by persons habitually resident in another country party to the Convention. It establishes procedures to be followed in such adoption cases and imposes safeguards to protect the best interests of the children at issue. It also provides for recognition of adoptions that occur pursuant to the Convention. In the United States, the implementing legislation for the Hague Convention is the Intercountry Adoption Act of 2000 (IAA). To implement the Convention, the IAA makes two significant changes to the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA): (1) It creates a new definition of ‘‘child’’ applicable in Convention adoption cases, found at INA 101(b)(1)(G), that roughly parallels the current definition of ‘‘child’’ in INA 101(b)(1)(F) with respect to an orphan, but that applies only to children being adopted from Convention countries. (2) It incorporates Hague procedures into the immigration process for children covered by INA 101(b)(1)(G), most directly by precluding approval of an immigration petition under this classification until the Department has certified that the child was adopted (or legal custody was granted for purposes of emigration and adoption) in accordance with the Convention and the IAA. Separately, section 301 of the IAA requires all Federal, State, and local domestic entities to recognize adoptions or grants of legal custody that have been so certified by the Department. On October 4, 2007, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published in the Federal Register at 72 FR 56832 an interim rule on ‘‘Classification of PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 61301 aliens as children of United States citizens based on intercountry adoptions under the Hague Convention’’ (8 CFR parts 103, 204 and 213a) (‘‘DHS Rule’’). That rule governs the adjudication of Forms I–800A (relating to the suitability of prospective adoptive parents for intercountry adoption under the Convention) and Forms I–800 (relating to the classification of a Convention adoptee as the child of the adoptive parent(s) for purposes of the immigration and nationality laws of the United States). Additional regulations implement other aspects of the Convention and the IAA, such as those on the accreditation/approval of adoption service providers to perform adoption services in cases covered by the Convention (22 CFR part 96), the preservation of records (22 CFR part 98), and certificate issuance with respect to United States court proceedings (22 CFR part 97). Further background on the Convention and the IAA is provided in the Preamble to the Final Rule on the Accreditation of Agencies and Approval of Persons under the Intercountry Adoption Act of 2000, Sections III and IV, 71 FR 8064–8066 (February 15, 2006). Discussion of Comments on the Proposed Rule This section provides a discussion of the comments received by the Department of State on the proposed rule. 1. Comment: Commenters requested elaboration of the operational component of this rule, including the mechanics of how the applications for petition approval and visa eligibility will be submitted. Specifically, who completes and submits the petition to the consular officer and at what stage in the process? Also, will it be possible for adoption service providers to submit petitions abroad, with required documentation and fees, on behalf of prospective adoptive parents? Response: Once the Form I–800A, Application for Determination of Suitability to Adopt a Child from a Convention Country, has been approved, a Form I–800, Petition to Classify Convention Adoptee as Immediate Relative, may be submitted either to DHS or to the consular officer, as under the current procedure in immigration cases involving orphan adoption. The DHS Rule, at 8 CFR 204.308, indicates that the proper filing location for Form I–800A and Form I– 800 will be specified on the instructions for each form. The Supplementary Information, at 72 FR 56841–42, states that DHS anticipates that the filing process for Convention cases will be E:\FR\FM\30OCR1.SGM 30OCR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On August 9, 2007, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to establish Class E airspace at 
Springfield, CO, (72 FR 44815). This action would improve the safety of 
IFR aircraft at Springfield Municipal Airport, Springfield, CO. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No 
comments were received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9R dated August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 
2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class 
E airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in that Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by establishing Class E airspace at Springfield, CO. Controlled 
airspace is necessary to accommodate IFR aircraft at Springfield 
Municipal Airport, Springfield, CO.
    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, when promulgated, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority.
    This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the 
FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it establishes Class E airspace at Springfield, CO.
