SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: CPrice-Sewell on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with RULES History On Monday, July 6, 2009, the FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register to establish Class E airspace at Chuathbaluk, AK (74 FR 31899). Subsequent to publication, the FAA found an error in the geographic coordinates and textual description for Chuathbaluk Airport. This action corrects these errors. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. The rule, with corrected coordinates, is adopted as proposed. The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1,200 ft. transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9T, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 27, 2009, and effective September 15, 2009, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace at the Chuathbaluk Airport, AK. This Class E airspace is established to accommodate aircraft executing a new instrument procedure, and will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The intended effect of this rule is to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the Chuathbaluk Airport, Chuathbaluk, AK. 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. Because this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:30 Oct 09, 2009 Jkt 220001 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 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 1, Section 40103, Sovereignty and use of airspace. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it creates Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing instrument procedures for the Chuathbaluk Airport and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

Specifically, section 641 provides that a person (an individual, corporation, association, or partnership) must hold a valid customs broker’s license and permit in order to transact customs business on behalf of others. In the case of an applicant for an individual broker’s license, section 641 states that the Secretary of the Treasury may conduct an examination to determine an applicant’s qualifications for a license. The Homeland Security Act of 2002 (Homeland Security Act) generally transferred the functions of the U.S. Customs Service from the Treasury Department to the Secretary of Homeland Security. 6 U.S.C. 101 et seq. Section 412 of the Homeland Security Act (6 U.S.C. 212) provides that the Secretary of the Treasury retains customs revenue functions unless the Secretary of the Treasury delegates the authority to the Secretary of Homeland Security. The regulation of customs brokers is encompassed within the customs revenue functions set forth in section 412 of the Homeland Security Act. On May 15, 2003, the Secretary of the Treasury delegated authority related to the customs revenue functions to the Secretary of Homeland Security subject to certain exceptions. See Treasury Order No. 100–16 (Appendix to 19 CFR Part 0).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On August 5, 2009, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to establish controlled airspace at 
Eastsound, WA (74 FR 39001). 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 6002 of 
FAA Order 7400.9T signed August 27, 2009,

[[Page 52400]]

and effective September 15, 2009, 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 establishing Class E airspace at Eastsound, WA. Controlled 
airspace is necessary to accommodate IFR aircraft executing a new RNAV 
(GPS) approach procedure at Eastsound Orcas Island Airport, Eastsound, 
WA.
    The FAA has determined 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 discusses 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 establishes 
controlled airspace at Eastsound Orcas Island Airport, Eastsound, WA.
