This action provides adequate Class E airspace for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the new Halifax-Northampton Regional Airport (IXA), and will remove Class E airspace for the Halifax County Airport (RZZ). Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) Runways (RWYs) 02–20 have been developed for HalifaxNorthampton Regional Airport. As a result, controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is needed to contain the SIAP and for IFR operations at HalifaxNorthampton Regional Airport. Class E airspace designations for 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, signed August 15, 2007, and 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: ACTION: SUMMARY: This interim final rule eliminates the Department’s Board of Appellate Review (L/BAR), which had been authorized to review certain Department determinations, in particular those related to loss of citizenship and passport denials. Because L/BAR’s jurisdiction has been superseded or made obsolete for several years, and in large part replaced by review of loss of citizenship and passport matters by the Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs, this rule eliminates L/BAR and authorizes on a discretionary basis an alternative, less cumbersome review of loss of nationality determinations by the Bureau of Consular Affairs.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Monica A. Gaw, Office of Policy Review and InterAgency Liaison, Overseas Citizens Services, who may be reached at (202) 736–9110. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Elimination of Board of Appellate Review (L/BAR) The Board of Appellate Review, which is part of the Office of the Legal Adviser for administrative purposes and thus referred to by the acronym ‘‘L/BAR,’’ was established to provide a mechanism for appeal of certain administrative decisions of the Department of State. However, as described below, its jurisdiction has been superseded or made obsolete for several years, replaced in large part by review of loss of citizenship and passport matters by the Bureau of Consular Affairs. This rule accordingly reflects current departmental practice and organization related to review of loss of citizenship. As a result of consolidations through subsequent regulations, 22 CFR 7.3 currently provides that L/BAR is responsible for appeals from: (1) Administrative decisions of loss of nationality or expatriation; (2) administrative decisions denying, revoking, restricting or invalidating a passport under certain provisions; (3) final decisions of contracting officers not otherwise provided for in the Department’s contract appeal regulations; (4) administrative determinations under 22 CFR 64.1(a) denying assistance to U.S. nationals who do not comply with the Fair Labor Standards in 22 CFR 61.2; and, (5) administrative decisions in such other cases and under such terms of reference as the Secretary authorizes. Amendments to Federal statutes and regulations other than 22 CFR part 7 have significantly narrowed L/BAR authorities, and thus very few or no appeals are brought to it. Although 22 CFR 7.3(b) gave L/BAR jurisdiction over certain passport denial, revocation, and restriction cases, subsequent changes to 22 CFR part 51 superseded that provision, most recently revisions effective February 1, 2008 to 22 CFR 51.70–51.74 (formerly 22 CFR 51.80 et seq.), 72 Federal Register 222 (November 19, 2007), p. 64939.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On April 8, 2008, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of 
Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace 
at Roanoke Rapids, NC, (73 FR 19020). This action provides adequate 
Class E airspace for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the 
new Halifax-Northampton Regional Airport (IXA), and will remove Class E 
airspace for the Halifax County Airport (RZZ). Area Navigation (RNAV) 
Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures 
(SIAPs) Runways (RWYs) 02-20 have been developed for Halifax-
Northampton Regional Airport. As a result, controlled airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is needed to 
contain the SIAP and for IFR operations at Halifax-Northampton Regional 
Airport. Class E airspace designations for 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, signed August 15, 
2007, and 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.
    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 amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishes Class E airspace at Roanoke Rapids, NC, to provide 
controlled airspace required to support the Instrument Flight Rules 
(IFR) operations at Halifax-Northampton Regional Airport (IXA) and to 
remove the Class E airspace supporting Halifax County Airport (RZZ), as 
the airspace supporting RZZ is no longer required.
    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.
