The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace designated as surface areas at Monterey Peninsula Airport, Monterey, CA. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using the new RNAV (RNP) SIAP at Monterey Peninsula Airport. This action would enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at Monterey Peninsula Airport, Monterey, CA. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, 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 VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:35 Nov 17, 2009 Jkt 220001 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 would establish additional controlled airspace at Monterey Peninsula Airport, Monterey, CA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposed rule includes mailing standards for postage printed using IBI postage meters and PC Postage® products including postage generated from Click-N-Ship® service. These technologies provide convenience and ease of use for printing and payment of postage. However, sufficient revenue assurance procedures and practices must be implemented to ensure all required postage is paid. Postage meters and PC Postage products are collectively identified as ‘‘postage evidencing systems.’’ A postage evidencing system is a device or system of components a customer uses to print evidence that postage required for a mailing has been paid. Postage evidencing systems print indicia, such as meter imprints or IBI, to indicate sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:35 Nov 17, 2009 Jkt 220001 postage payment. Mailers print indicia directly on a mailpiece or on a label that is affixed to a mailpiece. Postage meters are devices that allow download, storage, and accounting of postage through the device. Meters print indicia that may be IBI or non-IBI, to indicate postage payment. IBI are digitally generated indicia that include a two-dimensional barcode. PC Postage products are software-based and Internet-based solutions for managing postage accounts and postage payment. Mailers purchase postage using a computer and print indicia using desktop or label printers. PC Postage products print IBI indicating postage payment and may print directly onto mailpieces, shipping labels, and USPSapproved customized labels. PC Postage products are offered by USPS and USPS-approved commercial providers. IBI postage meters and PC Postage products, available from authorized providers, allow customers to set up and manage postage accounts via a secure host site, purchase postage via a credit card or automated clearing house (ACH) transaction, and print postage on envelopes, shipping labels, or customized labels for all mail classes except Periodicals and Bound Printed Matter. The Postal Service will use mail processing equipment and ancillary information systems to detect and capture data for mailpieces with unpaid or shortpaid IBI postage from postage evidencing systems. The Postal Service will analyze this data to ensure its validity and confirm whether sufficient postage was paid. In cases where deficient postage is confirmed, the Postal Service will notify the respective PC Postage or postage meter provider to take corrective measures to recover the appropriate postage. IBI printed either on a shipping label or directly on a mailpiece are to be used as originally printed and are not to be counterfeited, replicated, duplicated, falsified, or otherwise modified. In addition, the IBI postage affixed to a mailpiece must be equal to or greater than the amount due for the applicable price category and associated criteria such as weight, shape, and zone. Counterfeiting, replicating, duplicating, falsifying, or otherwise modifying IBI and not affixing the applicable amount of postage result in a loss of revenue for the Postal Service, because postage is not paid for the pieces mailed. This deficiency not only affects the Postal Service but our customers as well because rising costs may result in price adjustments. USPS® may deny a customer use of a postage evidencing system in the event PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 of failure to comply with rules and regulations contained in the DMM, submission of false or fictitious information, and entering a series of unpaid or shortpaid mailpieces and/or packages in the mailstream. As part of the Postal Service’s ongoing effort to increase effectiveness, enhance financial control, and reduce costs, an automated process will be implemented by using mail processing equipment and ancillary information systems to detect and capture unpaid and shortpaid IBI postage on mailpieces, including pieces with postage generated from Click-NShip service. This automated process will supplement and enhance our current manual process. Unpaid IBI Postage Mailpieces with unpaid IBI postage are those for which postage is not paid due to the use of counterfeited, replicated, duplicated, falsified, or otherwise modified IBI. Shortpaid IBI Postage Mailpieces with shortpaid postage are those for which the total of the postage affixed to a mailpiece is not equal to or greater than the amount due for the applicable price category and associated criteria such as weight, shape, and zone. The Postal Service will analyze captured data to verify its validity and use this information to identify cases where unpaid or shortpaid IBI postage exist. Any mailpiece identified with an unpaid or shortpaid IBI may be subject to the following actions: Collection of the unpaid or shortpaid postage, debit from the customer’s account, revocation of the customer’s account privileges, and/or civil and criminal fines and penalties pursuant to existing federal law. Customers will work with their PC Postage or postage meter providers to address shortpaid and unpaid IBI postage disputes and appeals. The PC Postage or postage meter provider will work with the Postal Service to resolve such appeals. Although we are exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act [5 U.S.C of 553(b), (c)] regarding proposed rulemaking by 39 U.S.C. 410 (a), we invite public comments on the following proposed revisions to Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM), incorporated by reference in the Code of Federal Regulations.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Bryce Canyon Airport, Bryce 
Canyon, UT. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft 
using the new RNAV (GPS) SIAP at Bryce Canyon Airport. This action 
would enhance the safety and management of (IFR) operations at Bryce 
Canyon Airport, Bryce Canyon, UT.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 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 I, 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 would establish controlled airspace at Bryce Canyon Airport, 
Bryce Canyon, UT.
