SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: erowe on PROD1PC64 with RULES History On March 2, 2009, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to establish Class E airspace at Rushville, NE, adding controlled airspace at Modisett Airport, Rushville, NE. (74 FR 9053, Docket No. FAA–2009–0120). 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 the Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace at Rushville, NE, adding controlled airspace at Modisett Airport, Rushville, NE, for the safety and management of IFR aircraft operations. 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 VerDate Nov<24>2008 13:58 May 11, 2009 Jkt 217001 airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it adds controlled airspace at Modisett Airport, Rushville, NE.

Adoption of the Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR Part 71 as follows: ■ PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce is removing its Mexican Cement Import Licensing (‘‘MCILS’’) regulations currently published at 19 CFR Part 361. This action is being taken pursuant to provisions of the Agreement Between the Office of the United States Trade Representative and the Department of Commerce of the United States of America and the Ministry of Economy of the United Mexican States (Secretaria de Economia) on Trade in Cement (‘‘Cement Agreement’’), signed March 6, 2006. The Cement Agreement was terminated at 11:59 p.m. on March 31, 2009. Accordingly, the MCILS will no longer be necessary. DATE: Effective Date: May 12, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sally C. Gannon, (202) 482–0162 or Judith Wey Rudman, (202) 482–0192. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 6, 2006, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (‘‘USTR’’) and the United States Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’) entered into an agreement with the Secretaria de Economia of Mexico pertaining to imports of gray portland cement and clinker from Mexico (‘‘Mexican Cement’’). The Cement Agreement provided for the settlement or suspension of ongoing litigation before North American Free Trade Agreement and World Trade Organization panels challenging various antidumping duty determinations involving Mexican Cement. Pursuant to the terms of the Cement Agreement, on February 28, 2007, Import Administration (‘‘IA’’) issued a rule to add new regulations implementing the MCILS. This rule required all importers of cement from Mexico covered by the scope of the Cement Agreement to obtain an import license from the Department prior to completing their U.S. Customs and Border Protection entry summary documentation. IA used the information recorded via the MCILS to monitor compliance with the Cement Agreement. The Cement Agreement also provided that if all interested parties had abided by its terms, Commerce would terminate the Cement Agreement on March 31, 2009, and would revoke the underlying antidumping duty order. All obligations of the Cement Agreement were fulfilled; therefore, Commerce has terminated the Cement Agreement, and revoked the underlying antidumping duty order through a notice entitled Gray Portland Cement and Clinker from Mexico: Final Results of Changed-Circumstances Review, E:\FR\FM\12MYR1.SGM 12MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 90 / Tuesday, May 12, 2009 / Rules and Regulations erowe on PROD1PC64 with RULES Revocation of Antidumping Duty Order, and Termination of Five-Year (Sunset) Review of Antidumping Duty Order published in the Federal Register on April 6, 2009 (74 FR 15435). As a result, the MCILS is no longer necessary and Commerce is removing the regulations pertaining to it. Commerce will also discontinue the associated collection-ofinformation authorization provided by the Office of Management and Budget under Control Number 0625–0259. Classification Executive Order 12866: This action has been determined to be not significant under E.O. 12866. Administrative Procedure Act: The Department of Commerce finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to waive prior notice and opportunity for public comment as it is contrary to the public interest. The regulations implementing the MCILS required all importers of cement from Mexico covered by the scope of the Cement Agreement to obtain an import license from the Department through the MCILS prior to completing their U.S. Customs and Border Protection entry summary documentation. IA used the information recorded via the MCILS to monitor compliance with the Cement Agreement. The Cement Agreement provided that if all interested parties had abided by its terms, Commerce would terminate the Cement Agreement on March 31, 2009, and would revoke the underlying antidumping duty order. All obligations of the Cement Agreement were fulfilled; therefore, Commerce terminated the Cement Agreement on the agreed upon date. Commerce also revoked the underlying antidumping duty order effective April 1, 2009. See 74 FR 15435. Accordingly, it is no longer necessary to collect licensing information via the MCILS, and is therefore in the public interest to discontinue regulations requiring importers to use, and for IA to maintain, the MCILS. If the Department continued to allow the operation of the MCILS, the public would be unduly burdened by the MCILS regulations. For the above reasons, the Department waives the notice and comment rulemaking requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and issues this rule in final form. The Department of Commerce finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(1) to waive the 30-day delay in effectiveness as this rule relieves a restriction. This rule removes the regulations requiring all importers of cement from Mexico covered by the scope of the Cement Agreement to obtain an import license from the Department prior to completing their U.S. Customs and VerDate Nov<24>2008 13:58 May 11, 2009 Jkt 217001 Border Protection entry summary documentation because it is no longer necessary to collect this information. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Department terminated the Cement Agreement on March 31, 2009, and revoked the underlying antidumping duty order effective April 1, 2009. See 74 FR 15435. Because it is no longer necessary to collect the information through the MCILS, the Department discontinues the MCILS, and removes the related implementing regulations through this final rule. The removal of the MCILS regulations constitutes a relief of a restriction as importers of cement from Mexico would no longer be required to obtain an import license from the Department. In order to implement this action immediately, the Department makes this rule effective upon publication. Regulatory Flexibility Act: Because notice and opportunity for comment are not required pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553 or any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are inapplicable. Therefore, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required and has not been prepared. List of Subjects in 19 CFR Part 361 Mexican Cement Import Licensing System. Accordingly, pursuant to 13 U.S.C. 301(a) and 302, and section XI of the Cement Agreement, the Department is removing 19 CFR Part 361 in its entirety. ■ Dated: May 4, 2009. Ronald K.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce is removing its Mexican Cement 
Import Licensing (``MCILS'') regulations currently published at 19 CFR 
Part 361. This action is being taken pursuant to provisions of the 
Agreement Between the Office of the United States Trade Representative 
and the Department of Commerce of the United States of America and the 
Ministry of Economy of the United Mexican States (Secretaria de 
Economia) on Trade in Cement (``Cement Agreement''), signed March 6, 
2006. The Cement Agreement was terminated at 11:59 p.m. on March 31,

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sally C. Gannon, (202) 482-0162 or

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 6, 2006, the Office of the United 
States Trade Representative (``USTR'') and the United States Department 
of Commerce (``Commerce'') entered into an agreement with the 
Secretaria de Economia of Mexico pertaining to imports of gray portland 
cement and clinker from Mexico (``Mexican Cement''). The Cement 
Agreement provided for the settlement or suspension of ongoing 
litigation before North American Free Trade Agreement and World Trade 
Organization panels challenging various antidumping duty determinations 
involving Mexican Cement. Pursuant to the terms of the Cement 
Agreement, on February 28, 2007, Import Administration (``IA'') issued 
a rule to add new regulations implementing the MCILS. This rule 
required all importers of cement from Mexico covered by the scope of 
the Cement Agreement to obtain an import license from the Department 
prior to completing their U.S. Customs and Border Protection entry 
summary documentation. IA used the information recorded via the MCILS 
to monitor compliance with the Cement Agreement. The Cement Agreement 
also provided that if all interested parties had abided by its terms, 
Commerce would terminate the Cement Agreement on March 31, 2009, and 
would revoke the underlying antidumping duty order. All obligations of 
the Cement Agreement were fulfilled; therefore, Commerce has terminated 
the Cement Agreement, and revoked the underlying antidumping duty order

    Executive Order 12866: This action has been determined to be not 
significant under E.O. 12866.
    Administrative Procedure Act: The Department of Commerce finds good 
cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to waive prior notice and opportunity 
for public comment as it is contrary to the public interest. The 
regulations implementing the MCILS required all importers of cement 
from Mexico covered by the scope of the Cement Agreement to obtain an 
import license from the Department through the MCILS prior to 
completing their U.S. Customs and Border Protection entry summary 
documentation. IA used the information recorded via the MCILS to 
monitor compliance with the Cement Agreement. The Cement Agreement 
provided that if all interested parties had abided by its terms, 
Commerce would terminate the Cement Agreement on March 31, 2009, and 
would revoke the underlying antidumping duty order. All obligations of 
the Cement Agreement were fulfilled; therefore, Commerce terminated the 
Cement Agreement on the agreed upon date. Commerce also revoked the 
underlying antidumping duty order effective April 1, 2009. See 74 FR 
15435. Accordingly, it is no longer necessary to collect licensing 
information via the MCILS, and is therefore in the public interest to 
discontinue regulations requiring importers to use, and for IA to

of the MCILS, the public would be unduly burdened by the MCILS 
regulations. For the above reasons, the Department waives the notice 
and comment rulemaking requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and issues 
this rule in final form.
    The Department of Commerce finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 
553(d)(1) to waive the 30-day delay in effectiveness as this rule 
relieves a restriction. This rule removes the regulations requiring all 
importers of cement from Mexico covered by the scope of the Cement 
Agreement to obtain an import license from the Department prior to 
completing their U.S. Customs and Border Protection entry summary 
documentation because it is no longer necessary to collect this 
information. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Department 
terminated the Cement Agreement on March 31, 2009, and revoked the 
underlying antidumping duty order effective April 1, 2009. See 74 FR 
15435. Because it is no longer necessary to collect the information 
through the MCILS, the Department discontinues the MCILS, and removes 
the related implementing regulations through this final rule. The 
removal of the MCILS regulations constitutes a relief of a restriction 
as importers of cement from Mexico would no longer be required to 
obtain an import license from the Department. In order to implement 
this action immediately, the Department makes this rule effective upon

    Regulatory Flexibility Act: Because notice and opportunity for 
comment are not required pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553 or any other law, the 
analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601

is not required and has not been prepared.
