The Proposal This action proposes to amend Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing a Class D airspace area extending upward from the surface to and including 2,700 feet MSL within a 4.1-mile radius of New Braunfels Municipal Airport, TX. The VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:08 Dec 17, 2007 Jkt 214001 establishment of an air traffic control tower has made this action necessary. The intended effect of this proposal is to provide controlled airspace for flight operations at New Braunfels Municipal Airport, TX. The area would be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts. Class D airspace areas are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9R, dated August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 2007, 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. 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. 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 improves the safety of aircraft executing IFR procedures at New Braunfels Municipal Airport, TX.

The Proposal

    This action proposes to amend Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations 
(14 CFR) part 71 by establishing a Class D airspace area extending 
upward from the surface to and including 3,300 feet MSL within a 5.0-
mile radius of Sherman/Denison, Grayson County Airport, TX. The 
establishment of an air traffic control tower has made this action 
necessary. The intended effect of this proposal is to provide 
controlled airspace for flight operations at Grayson County Airport, 
TX. The area would be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts.
    Class D airspace areas are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 
7400.9R, dated August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 2007, 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. 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.
    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 improves the safety of aircraft executing IFR procedures at 
Sherman/Denison, Grayson County Airport, TX.
