The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E airspace at Astoria Regional Airport, Astoria, OR. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using the new RNAV (GPS) SIAP at Astoria Regional Airport, Astoria, OR. This action would enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at Astoria Regional Airport, Astoria, OR. This will also correct the name from Port of Astoria Airport. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9T, signed August 27, 2009, and effective September 15, 2009, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. 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 E:\FR\FM\13NOP1.SGM 13NOP1 58574 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 218 / Friday, November 13, 2009 / Proposed Rules Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O. 10854, 24 FR 9565, 3 CFR, 1959– 1963 Comp., p. 389. miles north and 8.3 miles south of the Astoria Regional Airport 268° bearing extending from the 6.5-mile radius to 15.9 miles west of the Astoria Regional Airport, excluding the portion within a 1.8-mile radius of the Seaside Municipal Airport, and within 4 miles northeast and 8.3 miles southwest of the Astoria Regional Airport 326° bearing extending from the 6.5-mile radius to 21.4 miles northwest of the Astoria Regional Airport, and within 4 miles north and 4 miles south of the Astoria Regional Airport 096° bearing extending from the 6.5mile radius to 6 miles east of the Astoria Regional Airport, and within a 15.9-mile radius of the Astoria Regional Airport extending clockwise from the 326° bearing to the 347° bearing, and within a 23.1-mile radius of the Astoria Regional Airport extending clockwise from the 347° bearing to the 039° bearing to the 185° bearing, and, 8.3 miles north and 4 miles south of the Astoria Regional Airport 096° bearing from lat. 46°08′22″ N., long. 123°35′14″ W., to 15.9 miles east. § 71.1 * additional controlled airspace at Astoria Regional Airport, Astoria, OR.

SUMMARY: On October 14, 2009, EPA published an Emissions Factors Program Improvements ANPRM to convey issues raised by stakeholders about the program, inform the public of our initial ideas to address these issues, and solicit comments on our current thinking to resolve these issues. EPA has received several requests from stakeholders to grant additional time to provide comments on the ANPRM. Given that EPA published the ANPRM specifically to obtain public comments on the emissions factors program and the potential improvements to the program, EPA finds this request to be reasonable. Thus, the comment period is being extended 30 additional days to December 14, 2009. E:\FR\FM\13NOP1.SGM 13NOP1

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E airspace at Astoria 
Regional Airport, Astoria, OR. Controlled airspace is necessary to 
accommodate aircraft using the new RNAV (GPS) SIAP at Astoria Regional 
Airport, Astoria, OR. This action would enhance the safety and 
management of aircraft operations at Astoria Regional Airport, Astoria, 
OR. This will also correct the name from Port of Astoria Airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 
6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9T, signed August 27, 2009, and 
effective September 15, 2009, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will 
be published subsequently in this Order.
    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
