SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On Thursday, May 29, 2008, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Venetie, AK (73 FR 30820).

The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace at the Venetie Airport, Alaska. This Class E airspace is established to accommodate aircraft executing instrument procedures, and will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The intended effect of this rule is to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the Venetie Airport, Venetie, Alaska. 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. 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 E:\FR\FM\29JYR1.SGM 29JYR1 43848 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 146 / Tuesday, July 29, 2008 / Rules and Regulations impact is so minimal.

SUMMARY: The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) is revising its regulations to incorporate by reference the latest version (Version 001) of certain standards adopted by the Wholesale Electric Quadrant (WEQ) of the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB). NAESB’s standards revise its Open Access Same-Time Information Systems (OASIS) business practice standards, revise four business practice standards relating to reliability issues, add new standards on transmission loading relief for the Eastern Interconnection, add new standards for public key infrastructure, and add a new OASIS implementation guide. Incorporating these revised standards will provide customers with information that will enable them to obtain transmission service on a nondiscriminatory basis and will assist the Commission in supporting needed infrastructure and the reliability of the interstate transmission grid. DATES: Effective Date: This Final Rule will become effective on August 28, 2008. Dates for implementation of the standards are provided in the Final Rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Thursday, May 29, 2008, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the 
Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E 
airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface at 
Venetie, AK (73 FR 30820). The action was proposed in order to create 
Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing 
instrument procedures for the Venetie Airport. Class E controlled 
airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface 
in the Venetie Airport area is established by this action.
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. 
No comments were received. The rule is adopted as proposed.
    The area will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot 
reference. The coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North 
American Datum 83. The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1,200 
ft. transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 
7400.9R, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 15, 
2007, and effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in 
this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace at 
the Venetie Airport, Alaska. This Class E airspace is established to 
accommodate aircraft executing instrument procedures, and will be 
depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The intended 
effect of this rule is to provide adequate controlled airspace for 
Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the Venetie Airport, 
Venetie, Alaska.
    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. 
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 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 1, section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's

    This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart 1, Section 40103, Sovereignty and use of 
airspace. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing 
regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable

it creates Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft 
executing instrument procedures for the Venetie Airport and represents 
the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable 
airspace.
