The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace at Hollister, CA. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using the new RNAV (GPS) SIAP to Runway 31 at Hollister Municipal Airport. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface is necessary for the safety and management of aircraft operations at Hollister Municipal Airport, Hollister, CA. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9R, signed August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed 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. E:\FR\FM\29NOP1.SGM 29NOP1 67588 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 229 / Thursday, November 29, 2007 / Proposed Rules Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace at 
Hollister, CA. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft 
using the new RNAV (GPS) SIAP to Runway 31 at Hollister Municipal 
Airport. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
or more above the surface is necessary for the safety and management of 
aircraft operations at Hollister Municipal Airport, Hollister, CA.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9R, signed August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 
2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this 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

this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed 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.
