The proposal was to establish a Class E5 airspace area to bring Tarkio, MO airspace into compliance with FAA directives. 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. This rule amends part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by establishing a Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Gould Peterson Municipal Airport, Tarkio, MO and corrects the Airport Reference Point coordinates. The establishment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Instrument Approach Procedures (IAP) have made this action necessary. The intended effect of this action is to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight Rules operations at Gould Peterson Municipal Airport, Tarkio, MO. The area will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts. Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 6005 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 E 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 frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Department is amending its regulations to add to and modify the existing actions for which the Department may sanction a sponsor. The change in the regulations will streamline the review process to offer sanctioned sponsors the procedural due process rights equal to those that the Administrative Procedure Act guarantees. In addition, the Final Rule eliminates summary suspension and modifies program suspension to halt the activities of a sponsor that has committed a serious act of omission or commission which has or could have the effect of endangering the health, safety, or welfare of an exchange visitor, or damage the national security interests of the United States. DATES: Effective Date: This Final Rule is effective 30 days from November 2, 2007. The former United States Information Agency (USIA) and, as of October 1, 1999, its successor, the U.S. Department of State (Department), have promulgated regulations governing the Exchange Visitor Program. Those regulations now appear at 22 CFR Part 62. The regulations governing sanctions appear at 22 CFR 62.50, and regulations governing termination of a sponsor’s designation, at 22 CFR 62.60 through 62.62. The ultimate goals of the sanctions regulations are to further the foreign policy interests of the United States, and to protect the health, safety, and welfare of Exchange Visitor Program participants. These regulations largely have remained unchanged since 1993, when the USIA undertook a major regulatory reform of the Exchange Visitor Program, as administered by the Office of Exchange Coordination and Designation (Office). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 On May 31, 2007, the Department published a Proposed Rule on sanctions and terminations with a comment period ending July 30, 2007. 72 FR 30302–30308. Forty-nine (49) parties filed comments, which the Department reviewed and evaluated. The Alliance for International Educational and Cultural Exchange (Alliance), a membership organization, and the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) represented a number of individual designated program sponsors in their comments. Twentyfive (25) commenting parties favored the Proposed Rule. The remaining commenting parties criticized the Proposed Rule in one or more respects, and several parties recommended changes to the Proposed Rule. Having thoroughly reviewed the comments and the changes that commenting parties recommended, the Department has determined that it will, and hereby does, adopt the Proposed Rule, with minor edits, and promulgates it as a Final Rule. The Department’s evaluation of the written comments and recommendations follows. As the Department noted in the Supplementary Information accompanying the Proposed Rule, The [Fulbright-Hays] Act authorizes the President to provide for such exchanges if it would strengthen international cooperative relations. The language of the Act and its legislative history make it clear that the Congress considered international educational and cultural exchanges to be a significant part of the public diplomacy efforts of the President in connection with Constitutional prerogatives in conducting foreign affairs. Thus, exchange visitor programs that do not further the public diplomacy goals of the United States should not be designated initially, or retain their designation. Accordingly, it is imperative that the Department have the power to revoke program designations or deny applications for program redesignation when it determines that such programs do not serve the country’s public diplomacy goals. The above statement is the underpinning for the Department’s entire approach to the sanctions regime of the Exchange Visitor Program. Comment Analysis One of the overall criticisms of the Proposed Rule was that the Department eliminated the requirement that it find alleged violations of Part 62 to be willful or negligent before imposing sanctions. Fifteen (15) comments were opposed to the change. The Department believes that such criticism is without merit. A program sponsor, prior to being designated or redesignated, must demonstrate that it (i.e., the responsible officer and alternate responsible E:\FR\FM\02NOR1.SGM 02NOR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Wednesday, August 22, 2007, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of 
the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E 
airspace at Tarkio, MO (72 FR 46931). The proposal was to establish a 
Class E5 airspace area to bring Tarkio, MO airspace into compliance 
with FAA directives. 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 rule amends part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 
CFR part 71) by establishing a Class E airspace area extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface at Gould Peterson Municipal Airport, 
Tarkio, MO and corrects the Airport Reference Point coordinates. The 
establishment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) 
Instrument Approach Procedures (IAP) have made this action necessary. 
The intended effect of this action is to provide adequate controlled 
airspace for Instrument Flight Rules operations at Gould Peterson 
Municipal Airport, Tarkio, MO. The area will be depicted on appropriate 
aeronautical charts.
    Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above 
the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 6005 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 E 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 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

[[Page 62112]]

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 will not have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial 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 aircraft executing instrument approach procedures to 
Gould Peterson Municipal Airport, Tarkio, MO.
