Revisions to the Arizona State Implementation Plan, Maricopa County Air Quality Department and Maricopa County, 57622-57623 [E9-26860]

Download as PDF 57622 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 215 / Monday, November 9, 2009 / Proposed Rules The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed 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 proposed rule, when promulgated, would 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 for 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 the 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 additional controlled airspace at Rawlins Municipal/Harvey Field, Rawlins, WY. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY Paragraph 6002 Class E airspace designated as surface areas. 40 CFR Part 52 * [EPA–R09–OAR–2009–0042; FRL–8902–7] 1.

ACTION: Plan availability. SUMMARY: This document announces the availability of the Final Vehicle Safety Rulemaking and Research Priority Plan 2009–2011 (Priority Plan) in Docket No. NHTSA–2009–0108. The draft Priority Plan was announced in a Request for Comment published in the Federal Register on July 1, 2009. This document also summarizes the public comments received in response to that Request for Comments, and announces NHTSA’s intent to incorporate those comments in the process of developing a longer-term motor vehicle safety strategic plan that would encompass the period 2010 to 2020, and will be announced in a separate Federal Register notice.

Telephone: 202–366–0361. E-mail: joseph.carra@dot.gov On July 1, 2009, NHTSA published a Request for Comments (RFC) in the Federal Register (74 FR 31387) seeking public comment on the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Rulemaking and Research Priority Plan 2009–2011 (Priority Plan). NHTSA received 29 comments on the July 2009 RFC, from vehicle manufacturers (Ford; Fuji Heavy Industries USA (Subaru)), parts suppliers (Delphi; Bendix), industry organizations and associations (Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (Alliance); American Trucking Association (ATA); Heavy Duty Brake Manufacturers Association), automobile safety advocates (Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety (Advocates); Safe Kids USA; SafetyBeltSafe USA; Automotive Occupant Restraints Council (AORC), and concerned organizations and individuals (The Center for Injury Research and Prevention at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP); Safe Ride News; John Walsh; William M. Gorman; Karen Ahmed). All SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 57623 of the comments on the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Rulemaking and Research Priority Plan 2009–2011 can be reviewed in http://www.regulations.gov (see Docket No. NHTSA–2009–0108). Most commenters expressed general support of the Priority Plan, with several commenters commending NHTSA for publishing the RFC and allowing public comment. Two commenters noted that periodic publication of the Priority Plan, along with status updates, is good public policy and that it would help them align their own research plans. Commenters generally agreed with the priority areas NHTSA identified in the plan. Several of them suggested some additional projects that the Agency should consider within the areas of child safety, crash avoidance and crash mitigation technologies, drowsy, distracted and impaired drivers, and heavy truck stability control. Several commenters suggested that it would be helpful if the plan more clearly explained how short-term priorities fit into NHTSA’s overall mission to reduce fatalities and injuries in automobile crashes, and requested opportunities to meet to further discuss research plans and intermediate milestones. One commenter applauded the plan for being aggressive on behalf of highway safety. One commenter felt that the Priority Plan had serious deficiencies in that, in their view, it did not adequately address very specific areas including motorcoaches and related NTSB recommendations, crash compatibility regulatory action, older occupant protection, ejection mitigation regulatory action, glazing performance standards, consumer tire ratings beyond consumer information, remanufactured heavy vehicle truck tires, and motorcycle initiatives. That commenter suggested that these perceived deficiencies be corrected in the longterm plan. One commenter expressed concern that the Agency may not be adequately funded to achieve the goals delineated in the Priority Plan. Finally, several commenters discussed ways to improve crash datasets and to leverage existing SAE standards. NHTSA appreciates the public response to the July 2009 RFC regarding the short-term Priority Plan, and looks forward to continuing to engage stakeholders in the planning and formulation of priority research and rulemaking activities in order to further its mission of reducing fatalities and injuries in crashes on the nation’s roadways. In considering the breadth and strategic nature of the comments received, the Agency has determined that communication of how the Priority E:\FR\FM\09NOP1.SGM 09NOP1
