No Class E2 airspace exists in the area so new airspace must be developed which will serve IFR operations into Muldrow Army Heliport. Controlled airspace extending upward from the surface is required to encompass all SIAP and for the safety of IFR operations at Muldrow Army Heliport, Lexington, OK. Designations for class E2 airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth are published in the FAA Order 7400.9R, signed August 15, 2007 and effective September 15, 2007, which VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:57 Feb 08, 2008 Jkt 214001 is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1.

PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS Agency Findings I 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 implication 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.

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. 
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 of 
the rule. If the FAA receives, within the comment period, an adverse or 
negative comment, or written comment 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. An electronic copy of this document 
may be downloaded from https://www.regulations.gov. Communications 
should identify both docket numbers and be submitted in triplicate to 
the address specified under the caption ADDRESSES above or through the 
Web site. All communications received on or before the closing date for 
comments will be considered, and this rule may be amended or withdrawn 
in light of the comments received.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishes Class E2 airspace at Lexington, OK providing the 
airspace required to support the new Copter RNAV (GPS) Runway 17 
approach developed for IFR landings at Muldrow Army Heliport, OK. No 
Class E2 airspace exists in the area so new airspace must be developed 
which will serve IFR operations into Muldrow Army Heliport. Controlled 
airspace extending upward from the surface is required to encompass all 
SIAP and for the safety of IFR operations at Muldrow Army Heliport, 
Lexington, OK. Designations for class E2 airspace areas extending 
upward from the surface of the earth are published in the FAA Order 
7400.9R, signed August 15, 2007 and effective September 15, 2007, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1. Class E2 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 implication 
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 that authority 
as it establishes Class E2 airspace near Lexington, OK.
