Confirmation of Effective Date The FAA published this direct final rule with a request for comments in the Federal Register on October 22, 2008, (73 FR 62876), establishing Class E airspace to support Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPS) developed for Paulding County Regional Airport. The FAA uses the direct final rulemaking procedure for a non-controversial rule where the FAA believes that there will be no adverse public comment. This direct final rule advised the public that no adverse comments were anticipated, and that unless a written adverse comment or a written notice of intent to submit such an adverse comment were received within the comment period, the regulation would become effective on January 15, 2009. No adverse comments were received, and thus this notice confirms that effective date. * * * * * Issued in College Park, GA, on April 2, 2009. Myron A.

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 and 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 PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 17901 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. Comments Invited Although this action is in the form of a direct final rule, and was not preceded by a notice of proposed rulemaking, interested persons are invited to comment on this rule by submitting such written data, views, or arguments as they may desire. An electronic copy of this document may be downloaded from and comments may be submitted and reviewed at http:// www.regulations.gov. Recently published rulemaking documents can also be accessed through the FAA’s web page at http://www.faa.gov/ airports_airtraffic/air_traffic/ publications/airspace_amendments/.

All communications received on or before the closing date for comments will be considered, and this rule may be amended or withdrawn in light of the comments received. Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the rule that might suggest a need to modify the rule. Factual information that supports the commenter’s ideas and suggestions is extremely helpful in evaluating the effectiveness of this action and determining whether additional rulemaking action would be needed. All comments submitted will be available, both before and after the closing date for comments, in the Rules Docket for examination by interested persons. Those wishing the FAA to acknowledge receipt of their comments submitted in response to this rule must submit a self-addressed, stamped postcard on which the following statement is made: ‘‘Comments to Docket No. FAA–2009–0202; Airspace Docket No. 09–AEA–11.’’ The postcard will be date stamped and returned to the commenter. The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 modifies Class D and E4 airspace and E:\FR\FM\20APR1.SGM 20APR1 17902 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 74 / Monday, April 20, 2009 / Rules and Regulations rmajette on PRODPC74 with RULES establishes Class E2 airspace at Binghamton, NY by expanding the controlled airspace, extending upward from the surface of the Earth to support IFR operations at Binghamton Regional/ Edwin A. Link Field Airport to a 4.3mile radius with minor extensions for arrivals. Class D, Class E2 and E4 airspace designations for airspace areas extending upwards from the surface of the Earth are published in Paragraph 5000, 6002 and 6004 respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9S, dated October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 2008, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E2 airspace 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. 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 VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:41 Apr 17, 2009 Jkt 217001 is within the scope of that authority as it modifies the Class D, E2 and E4 airspace at Binghamton Regional/Edwin A.

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 and 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.

Comments Invited

    Although this action is in the form of a direct final rule, and was 
not preceded by a notice of proposed rulemaking, interested persons are 
invited to comment on this rule by submitting such written data, views, 
or arguments as they may desire. An electronic copy of this document 
may be downloaded from and comments may be submitted and reviewed at 
http://www.regulations.gov. Recently published rulemaking documents can 
also be accessed through the FAA's web page at http://www.faa.gov/airports_airtraffic/air_traffic/publications/airspace_amendments/. 
Communications should identify both docket numbers and be submitted in 
triplicate to the address specified under the caption ADDRESSES above 
or through the Web site. All communications received on or before the 
closing date for comments will be considered, and this rule may be 
amended or withdrawn in light of the comments received.
    Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the rule that might 
suggest a need to modify the rule. Factual information that supports 
the commenter's ideas and suggestions is extremely helpful in 
evaluating the effectiveness of this action and determining whether 
additional rulemaking action would be needed. All comments submitted 
will be available, both before and after the closing date for comments, 
in the Rules Docket for examination by interested persons. Those 
wishing the FAA to acknowledge receipt of their comments submitted in 
response to this rule must submit a self-addressed, stamped postcard on 
which the following statement is made: ``Comments to Docket No. FAA-
2009-0202; Airspace Docket No. 09-AEA-11.'' The postcard will be date 
stamped and returned to the commenter.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 modifies Class D and E4 airspace and

[[Page 17902]]

establishes Class E2 airspace at Binghamton, NY by expanding the 
controlled airspace, extending upward from the surface of the Earth to 
support IFR operations at Binghamton Regional/Edwin A. Link Field 
Airport to a 4.3-mile radius with minor extensions for arrivals.
    Class D, Class E2 and E4 airspace designations for airspace areas 
extending upwards from the surface of the Earth are published in 
Paragraph 5000, 6002 and 6004 respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9S, dated 
October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 2008, which is incorporated 
by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E2 airspace 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. 
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 the Class D, E2 and E4 airspace at Binghamton Regional/
Edwin A. Link Field Airport in Binghamton, NY.
