SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On December 16, 2008, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace at Tulsa, OK, 
adding additional controlled airspace at William R. Pogue Municipal 
Airport, Sand Springs, OK (73 FR 76293, Docket No. FAA-2008-1231). 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No 
comments were received. Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 6005 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 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 amending Class E airspace at Tulsa, OK, adding additional 
controlled airspace at William R. Pogue Municipal Airport, Sand 
Springs, OK.
    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 1, 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 adds additional controlled airspace in the Tulsa, OK airspace 
area, at William R. Pogue Municipal Airport, Sand Springs, OK.
