Amendment to Class E Airspace; Rutland, VT, 75936-75938 [E8-29268]

Download as PDF pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES 75936 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 241 / Monday, December 15, 2008 / Rules and Regulations operating expenses, and $36,943 for contingencies. The 2008–09 assessment rate was derived by considering the handler assessment revenue needed to meet anticipated expenses, the estimated salable tons of California dried prunes, excess funds carried forward into the 2008–09 crop year, and estimated income from other sources such as interest. Therefore, the Committee recommended an assessment rate of $0.30 per ton of salable dried prunes. Prior to arriving at its budget of $51,587, the Committee considered information from various sources, including the Committee’s Executive Subcommittee. The Executive Subcommittee reviewed the administrative expenses shared between the Committee and the CDPB in recent years. Accordingly, the Executive Subcommittee recommended reducing the share of expenses allocated to the Committee from 10 to 5 percent. The Executive Subcommittee then recommended the $51,587 budget and $0.30 per ton assessment rate to the Committee. The Committee recommended the same budget and assessment rate to USDA. Section 993.81(c) of the order provides the Committee the authority to use excess assessment funds from the 2007–08 crop year (estimated at $15,487) for up to 5 months beyond the end of the crop year to meet 2008–09 crop year expenses. At the end of the 5 months, the Committee either refunds or credits excess funds to handlers. To calculate the percentage of grower revenue represented by the assessment rate for 2007, the assessment rate of $0.60 per ton is divided by the estimated average grower price (according to the NASS). This results in estimated assessment revenue for the 2007–08 crop year as a percentage of grower revenue of .05 percent ($0.60 divided by $1,450 per ton). NASS data for 2008 is not yet available. However, applying the same calculations above using the average grower price for 2005– 07 would result in estimated assessment revenue as a percentage of total grower revenue of .02 percent for the 2008–09 crop year ($0.30 divided by $1,437 per ton). Thus, the assessment revenue should be well below 1 percent of estimated grower revenue in 2008. This action continues in effect the action that decreased the assessment obligation imposed on handlers. Assessments are applied uniformly on all handlers, and some of the costs may be passed on to producers. However, decreasing the assessment rate reduces the burden on handlers, and may reduce the burden on producers. In addition, VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:19 Dec 12, 2008 Jkt 217001 the Committee’s meeting was widely publicized throughout the California dried prune industry and all interested persons were invited to attend the meeting and participate in Committee deliberations on all issues. Like all Committee meetings, the June 26, 2008, meeting was a public meeting and all entities, both large and small, were able to express views on this issue. This action imposes no additional reporting or recordkeeping requirements on either small or large California dried prune handlers. As with all Federal marketing order programs, reports and forms are periodically reviewed to reduce information requirements and duplication by industry and public sector agencies. AMS is committed to complying with the E-Government Act, to promote the use of the Internet and other information technologies to provide increased opportunities for citizen access to Government information and services, and for other purposes. In addition, as noted in the initial regulatory flexibility analysis, USDA has not identified any relevant Federal rules that duplicate, overlap, or conflict with this rule. An interim final rule concerning this action was published in the Federal Register on August 26, 2008 (73 FR 50188). Copies of that rule were also mailed or sent via facsimile to all prune handlers. Finally, the interim final rule was made available through the Internet by USDA and the Office of the Federal Register. A 60-day comment period was provided for interested persons to respond to the interim final rule. The comment period ended on October 27, 2008, and no comments were received. A small business guide on complying with fruit, vegetable, and specialty crop marketing agreements and orders may be viewed at: http://www.ams.usda.gov/ AMSv1.0/ams.fetch TemplateData.do?template=Template N&page=MarketingOrdersSmall BusinessGuide. Any questions about the compliance guide should be sent to Jay Guerber at the previously mentioned address in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. After consideration of all relevant material presented, including the information and recommendation submitted by the Committee and other available information, it is hereby found that this rule, as hereinafter set forth, will tend to effectuate the declared policy of the Act.

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.

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.

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.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 revises Class E Airspace at Rutland, VT by modifying the 
Rutland-Southern Vermont Regional (RUT) Class E airspace to provide 
adequate Class E airspace for IFR operations at Rutland, VT. The IRA 
NDB has been decommissioned and in reviewing the legal description at 
Rutland-Southern Vermont Regional, 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 
Rutland-Southern Vermont Regional. This action changes the name of the 
airport from Rutland State Airport to Rutland-Southern Vermont 
Regional. 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 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 Rutland, VT.
