DATES: Effective Date: 0901 UTC, May 7, 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. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Scott Enander, Central Service Center, Operations Support Group, Federal Aviation Administration, Southwest Region, 2601 Meacham Blvd., Ft. Worth, TX 76193–0530; telephone (817) 321– 7716. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: cprice-sewell on PRODPC61 with RULES History On, November 26, 2008, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace at Corpus Christi, TX (73 FR 71965, Docket No. FAA–2008– 0987). This amendment included provisions to incorporate the Rockport, TX, Class E airspace area into the Corpus Christi, TX, Class E airspace area. 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 designation 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 revoking Class E airspace at Rockport, TX. This airspace has been incorporated into the Corpus Christi, TX, Class E airspace area under a separate rulemaking action. 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 VerDate Nov<24>2008 11:38 Feb 17, 2009 Jkt 217001 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 removes controlled airspace at Rockport, TX. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On October 30, 2008, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Federal Airway B-7 in 
Alaska (73 FR 64573). Interested parties were invited to participate in 
this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on this proposal. 
No comments were received in response to the NPRM. Based on further 
analysis of publication requirements the description of B-7 will be 
reversed and listed from Cape Newenham to Oscarville instead of from 
Oscarville to Cape Newenham. With the exception of editorial changes, 
and the change described above, this amendment is the same as that 
proposed in the NPRM.
    Colored Federal airways are published in paragraph 6009, of FAA 
Order 7400.9S signed October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 2008, 
which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Colored Federal 
airway listed in this document will be published subsequently in the 
Order.6

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by establishing Colored Federal Airway B-7 between Cape 
Newenham and Bethel, AK. This action adds to the IFR airway and route 
structure in Alaska by providing IFR connectivity between Cape 
Newenham, AK, and Bethel, AK. The FAA is proposing this action to 
improve the management of air traffic operations in the State of Alaska 
and to enhance safety.
    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 Department of Transportation (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 will enhance aviation safety in the state of Alaska.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Polices and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
