The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E airspace at Reno/Tahoe International Airport, Reno, NV. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to allow aircraft to complete a procedure turn while using the LOC Z Runway 16R approach at Reno/Tahoe International Airport, Reno, NV. This modification will also include a name change from LOC 2 Runway 16R approach to LOC Z Runway 16R approach at Reno/Tahoe International Airport, Reno, NV. This action would enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at Reno/Tahoe International Airport, Reno, NV. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA E:\FR\FM\18DEP1.SGM 18DEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 244 / Thursday, December 18, 2008 / Proposed Rules 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 airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed 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 proposed rule, when promulgated, would 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 1, Section 106, describes the authority for 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 the 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 additional controlled airspace at Reno/ Tahoe International Airport, Reno, NV.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Current regulations provide for the use of bicycles on park roads, parking areas and routes designated for bicycle use. A special regulation, specific to the individual park, must be adopted if bicycles are to be used in areas outside developed areas and special use zones.

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal

Tahoe International Airport, Reno, NV. Additional controlled airspace 
is necessary to allow aircraft to complete a procedure turn while using 
the LOC Z Runway 16R approach at Reno/Tahoe International Airport, 
Reno, NV. This modification will also include a name change from LOC 2 
Runway 16R approach to LOC Z Runway 16R approach at Reno/Tahoe

and management of aircraft operations at Reno/Tahoe International 
Airport, Reno, NV.

which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace 
designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
this Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed 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

this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when 
promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is
