SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with RULES History On Wednesday, August 15, 2007, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class D airspace at Independence Municipal Airport, KS (72 FR 45699). The proposal was to establish a Class D airspace area to provide controlled airspace for flight operations due to the establishment of an air traffic control tower. 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. The Rule This notice amends part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by establishing a Class D airspace area extending upward from the surface to an including 3,300 feet above sea level within a 4.6-mile radius of Independence Municipal Airport, KS. The establishment of an air traffic control tower has made this action necessary. The intended effect of this action is to provide controlled airspace for flight operations at Independence Municipal Airport, KS. The area will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts. Class D airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9R, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. of the same Order. The Class D airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequently and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation—(1) is not a ‘‘significantly 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 to minimal. Since this is a routine matter than 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:25 Nov 01, 2007 Jkt 214001 number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. 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 since it contains flight operations at Independence Municipal Airport, KS.

Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is required to encompass the IAP and for Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations, therefore, the FAA is amending Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish additional class E5 Airspace at Pottsville, PA. The current E5 airspace at Pottsville does not provide adequate airspace for this new approach. This action provides the required controlled airspace.

The Direct Final Rule Procedure

    The FAA anticipates that this regulation will not result in adverse 
or negative comments, and, therefore, issues it as a direct final rule. 
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. 
Unless a written adverse or negative comment or a written notice of 
intent to submit an adverse or negative comment is received within the 
comment period, the regulation will become effective on the date 
specified above. After the close of the comment period, the FAA will 
publish a document in the Federal Register indicating that no adverse 
or negative comments were received and confirming the effective date. 
If the FAA receives, within the comment period, an adverse or negative 
comment, or written notice of intent to submit such a comment, a 
document withdrawing the direct final rule will be published in the 
Federal Register, and a notice of proposed rulemaking may be published 
with a new comment period.

Comments Invited

    Although this action is in the form of a direct final rule, and was 
not preceded by a notice of proposed rulemaking, interested persons are 
invited to comment on this rule by submitting such written data, views, 
or arguments as they may desire. Communications should identify both 
docket numbers and be submitted in triplicate to the address specified 
under the caption ADDRESSES. All communications received on or before 
the closing data for comments will be considered, and this rule may be 
amended or withdrawn in light of comments received.
    Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the rule that might 
suggest a need to modify the rule. Factual information that supports 
the commenter's ideas and suggestions is extremely helpful in 
evaluating the effectiveness of this action and determining whether 
additional rulemaking action would be needed. All comments submitted 
will be available, both before and after the closing date for comments, 
in the Rules Docket for examination by interested persons. Those 
wishing the FAA to acknowledge receipt of their comments submitted in 
response to this rule must submit a self-addressed stamped postcard on 
which the following statement is made: ``Comments to Docket No. FAA-
2005-22490; Airspace Docket No. 05-AEA-018.'' The postcard will be date 
stamped and returned to the commenter.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends Class E airspace at Pottsville, PA establishing the 
controlled airspace required to support the new RNAV (GPS) Copter 095 
Point in Space (PinS) approach developed for Pottsville Hospital. 
Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level 
(AGL) is required to encompass the IAP and for Instrument Flight Rule 
(IFR) operations, therefore, the FAA is amending Title 14, Code of 
Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish additional class E5 
Airspace at Pottsville, PA. The current E5 airspace at Pottsville does 
not provide adequate airspace for this new approach. This action 
provides the required controlled airspace. Designations for Class E 
airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface 
of the Earth are published in FAA Order 7400.9R, signed August 15, 2007 
effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR 71.1. The Class E designations listed in this document will be 
published subsequently in the Order.

Agency Findings

    The regulations adopted herein will not have substantial direct 
effects on the States, on the relationship between the national 
government and the States, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among various levels of government. Therefore, it is 
determined that this final rule does not have federalism implications 
under Executive Order 13132.
    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, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore, (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 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of the authority 
as it established controlled airspace near the Pottsville Hospital, 
Pottsville, PA.
