Therefore, it is determined that this final rule does not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. 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.

History

    On June 23, 1994, the FAA amended Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E5 airspace at Madison, 
CT, (59 FR 29939) to provide sufficient controlled airspace for the VOR 
approach into Griswold Airport. In August 2007, the FAA discontinued 
the use of the VOR approach into Griswold Airport. This action will 
remove the Class E5 700 foot controlled airspace at Griswold Airport, 
thereby providing a less restrictive airspace.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 removes Class E5 airspace at Madison, CT.
    Class E5 airspace designations for airspace areas extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface of the Earth are published in Paragraph 
6005 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 E5 airspace 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 implications 
under Executive Order 13132.
    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.
    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 E airspace at Centre, AL.
