ACTION: Direct final rule; request for comments. The Direct Final Rule Procedure SUMMARY: This action establishes Class E Airspace at Russellville, AL. Airspace is needed to support new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) that have been developed for Russellville Municipal Airport. As a result, controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is needed to contain the SIAP and for Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations at the airport. The operating status of the airport will change from Visual flight Rules (VFR) to include IFR operations concurrent with the publication of the SIAP. This action enhances the safety and airspace management of Russellville Municipal Airport, Russellville, AL. DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, March 12, 2009.

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communications received on or before the closing date for comments will be considered, and this rule may be amended or withdrawn in light of the comments received. Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the rule that might suggest a need to modify the rule. Factual information that supports the commenter’s idea and suggestions is extremely helpful in evaluating the effectiveness of this action and determining whether additional rulemaking action would be needed. All comments submitted will be available, both before and after the closing date for comments, in the Rules Docket for examination by interested persons. Those wishing the FAA to acknowledge receipt of their comments submitted in response to this rule must submit a self-addressed, stamped postcard on which the following statement is made: ‘‘Comments to Docket No. FAA–2008–1094; Airspace Docket No. 08–ASO–18.’’ The postcard will be date stamped and returned to the commenter. Comments Invited The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 establishes Class E airspace at Russellville, AL, to provide controlled airspace required to support the Approach Procedures (SIAPs) that have been developed for Russellville Municipal Airport. Designations for Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in FAA Order 7400.9S, dated October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 2008, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. 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 Agency Findings The regulations adopted herein will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\15DER1.SGM 15DER1 75942 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 241 / Monday, December 15, 2008 / Rules and Regulations national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among various levels of government. Therefore, it is determined that this direct final rule does not have federalism implications 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. 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.

ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: This rule revises the authority citation paragraphs for 14 parts of the Export Administration Regulations to include citations to the most recent presidential notices that extend authority for those parts or to remove an outdated citation or both. This rule also updates addresses, telephone numbers, procedures and a definition, removes some potentially confusing language, makes a necessary conforming change to one Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) and restores some language that was dropped during a Code of Federal Regulations compilation. BIS is making these changes to clarify the regulations and to PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 This rule updates authority citation paragraphs and makes technical clarifications and revisions to the Export Administration Regulations as more fully described below. Since 2001, the authority citations for all parts of the Export Administration Regulations except part 745 have changed annually as successive presidential notices have extended the emergency declared in Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (which continued the Export Administration Act (EAA) and the EAR in force upon expiration of the EAA). Most recently the notice of July 23, 2008 (73 FR 43603, July 25, 2008) extended this emergency until August 17, 2009. In addition, the authority citations for parts 730, 734, 736, 742, 744 and 745 of the EAR have changed annually as successive presidential notices have extended the emergency declared in Executive Order 12938—Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction. Most recently the notice of November 10, 2008 (73 FR 67097, November 12, 2008) extended this emergency until November 14, 2009. This rule updates the authority citations paragraphs for parts 730, 734, 736, 742, 743, 745, 747, 754, 758, 764, 766, and 768 of the EAR to reflect the most recent applicable authority citations because authority citation paragraphs for those parts have not been updated by other EAR amendments. This rule also revises the authority citation paragraph for parts 740, 754 and 772 to remove one outdated citation. These revisions are needed so that the annual compilation of Title 15 of the Code of Federal Regulations as of January 1, 2009 will reflect current authority citations for all EAR parts. Updated Address and Telephone Information This rule updates the BIS office address and telephone number information in § 730.8(c). E:\FR\FM\15DER1.SGM 15DER1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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. 
The FAA has determined that this rule only involves an established body 
of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are 
necessary to keep them operationally current. 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. If the FAA receives, within 
the comment period, an adverse or negative comment, or written 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 and comments may be submitted and reviewed at 
http://www.regulations.gov. Recently published rulemaking documents can 
also be accessed through the FAA's Web page at http://www.faa.gov/
airports_airtraffic/air_traffic/publications/airspace_amendments. 
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.
    Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the rule that might 
suggest a need to modify the rule. Factual information that supports 
the commenter's idea and suggestions is extremely helpful in evaluating 
the effectiveness of this action and determining whether additional 
rulemaking action would be needed. All comments submitted will be 
available, both before and after the closing date for comments, in the 
Rules Docket for examination by interested persons. Those wishing the 
FAA to acknowledge receipt of their comments submitted in response to 
this rule must submit a self-addressed, stamped postcard on which the 
following statement is made: ``Comments to Docket No. FAA-2008-1094; 
Airspace Docket No. 08-ASO-18.'' The postcard will be date stamped and 
returned to the commenter.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishes Class E airspace at Russellville, AL, to provide 
controlled airspace required to support the Approach Procedures (SIAPs) 
that have been developed for Russellville Municipal Airport. 
Designations for Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet 
or more above the surface of the earth are published in FAA Order 
7400.9S, dated October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 2008, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E 
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

[[Page 75942]]

national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among various levels of government. Therefore, it is 
determined that this direct final rule does not have federalism 
implications 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. 
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 Russellville, AL.
