ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: This action establishes Class D airspace and Class E airspace at Lone Star Executive Airport, Conroe, TX. Establishment of an air traffic control tower at Lone Star Executive Airport has made this action necessary for the safety of Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations at the airport. Class D airspace will revert to a Class E Surface Area during periods when the control tower is not operating. This action also corrects the radials used to define the airspace. DATES: Effective Date: 0901 UTC, March 12, 2009. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

Worth, TX 76193–0530; telephone (817) 222– 5582. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On October 7, 2008, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to establish Class D airspace and Class E airspace at Conroe, TX (73 FR 58512, Docket No. FAA–2008–0960). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 76517 Subsequent to publication, the FAA found that a minor correction to the radials defining the airspace was needed. This action makes that correction. With the exception of editorial changes, and the changes described above, this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM. Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9S signed October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 2008, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. Class E Surface Area airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 of 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 D airspace and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class D airspace and Class E Surface Area airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 2,700 feet MSL within a 4.1mile radius of Lone Star Executive Airport, excluding that airspace within the 4.1-mile radius north and east of the intersection of the IAH 357° radial and the TNV 083° radial. 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. Therefore, this regulation: (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 U.S. 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 E:\FR\FM\17DER1.SGM 17DER1
