The Nicholas NDB has been decommissioned and in reviewing the legal description at Summerville Airport, the FAA determined that the Class E5 airspace should be redefined in order to provide adequate controlled airspace for aircraft executing Instrument Approach Procedures to Summerville 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, signed 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 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. 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:19 Dec 12, 2008 Jkt 217001 The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code.

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. The direct final rule is used in this 
case to facilitate the timing of the charting schedule and enhance the 
operation at the airport, while still allowing and requesting public 
comment on this rulemaking action. An electronic copy of this document 
may be downloaded from and comments submitted through http://
www.regulations.gov. Recently published rulemaking documents can also 
be accessed through the FAA's web page at http://www.faa.gov/airports_

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 ideas 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-2008-1073; Airspace

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 revises Class E Airspace at Summerville, WV by modifying the 
Summerville Class E airspace to provide adequate Class E airspace for 
IFR operations at Summerville, WV. The Nicholas NDB has been 
decommissioned and in reviewing the legal description at Summerville 
Airport, the FAA determined that the Class E5 airspace should be 
redefined in order to provide adequate controlled airspace for aircraft 
executing Instrument Approach Procedures to Summerville 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, signed 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 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.
    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 modifies controlled airspace at Summerville, WV.
