Background In a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) published on May 18, 2009, in the Federal Register (74 FR 23133), Customs and Border Protection (CBP) proposed to amend the list of CBP ports of entry at 19 CFR 101.3(b)(1) to extend the limits of the port of Columbus, Ohio, to include the Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal and supporting infrastructure so that it will be within the newly defined port limits. In the NPRM, CBP explained that the current port limits of the Columbus, Ohio, port of entry are described in two separate Treasury Decisions (T.D.s): T.D. 82–9, published in the Federal Register (47 FR 1286) on January 12, 1982 and effective February 11, 1982; and T.D. 96–67, published in the Federal Register (61 FR 49058) on September 18, 1996 and effective October 18, 1996. T.D. 82–9 specified the limits as follows: ‘‘The geographical boundaries of the Columbus, Ohio, Customs port of entry include all of the territory within the corporate limits of Columbus, Ohio; all of the territory completely surrounded by the city of Columbus; and, all of the territory enclosed by Interstate Highway 270 (outer belt), which completely surrounds the city.’’ T.D. 96–67 expanded the port limits of Columbus, Ohio, to encompass the port limits set forth in T.D. 82–9 as well as the following territory: ‘‘Beginning at the intersection of Rohr and Lockbourne Roads, then proceeding southerly along Lockbourne Road to Commerce Street, thence easterly along Commerce Street to its intersection with the N & W railroad tracks, then southerly along the N & W railroad tracks to the Franklin- PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 By amending: § 97.23 VOR, VOR/ DME, VOR or TACAN, and VOR/DME or TACAN; § 97.25 LOC, LOC/DME, LDA, LDA/DME, SDF, SDF/DME; § 97.27 NDB, NDB/DME; § 97.29 ILS, ILS/DME, MLS, MLS/DME, MLS/RNAV; § 97.31 RADAR SIAPs; § 97.33 RNAV SIAPs; and § 97.35 COPTER SIAPs, Identified as follows: * * * Effective Upon Publication FDC date 11/20/09 11/20/09 11/20/09 11/20/09 11/20/09 11/20/09 11/23/09 11/10/09 11/10/09 Subject ILS Rwy 17, Amdt 12B.

In the NPRM, CBP stated that the creation of the new Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal is an important part of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority’s plan to address a capacity problem at current facilities in the area. The terminal is located to the south of the current port boundaries. In order to accommodate the new facility and supporting infrastructure so that it falls within the newly defined port limits, the NPRM proposed to amend the port limits of the port of Columbus, Ohio. In the NPRM, CBP explained that this change will make the port boundaries more easily identifiable to the public and will result in better service that is provided by the port to the public by addressing a capacity problem at current facilities in the area. CBP determined that the change will not require a change in the staffing or workload at the port. Interested parties were given until July 17, 2009, to comment on the proposed changes. No comments were received in response to the notice. Accordingly, CBP has determined to E:\FR\FM\07DER1.SGM 07DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 233 / Monday, December 7, 2009 / Rules and Regulations adopt the proposal as set forth in the NPRM published in the Federal Register (74 FR 23133) on May 18, 2009. II. Conclusion CBP is extending the geographical limits of the port of Columbus, Ohio. CBP believes that extending the geographical limits of the port of Columbus, Ohio to include the Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal and supporting infrastructure will enable CBP to more efficiently utilize its personnel, facilities, and resources, and to provide better service to carriers, importers, and the general public. The port of entry description of Columbus, Ohio, will be revised as proposed in the NPRM. III. Port Description of Columbus, Ohio The port limits of Columbus, Ohio, which are expanded to include the Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal and supporting infrastructure, encompass the port limits set forth in T.D. 82–9 and T.D. 96–67 and are as follows: The geographical boundaries of the Columbus, Ohio, port of entry include all of Franklin County, and that part of Pickaway County east of U.S. Route 23 and north of State Route 752, all in the State of Ohio. IV. Authority This change is made under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 301; 19 U.S.C. 2, 66, and 1624; and section 403 of the Homeland Security Act of 202, Public Law 107–296, 116 Stat. 2178 (Nov. 25, 2002) (6 U.S.C. 203). per the Small Business Act); a small notfor-profit organization; or a small governmental jurisdiction (locality with fewer than 50,000 people). This rule does not directly regulate small entities. The change is part of CBP’s continuing program to more efficiently utilize its personnel, facilities, and resources, and to provide better service to carriers, importers, and the general public. To the extent that all entities are able to more efficiently or conveniently access the facilities and resources within the expanded geographical area of the new port limits, this rule should confer benefits to CBP, carriers, importers, and the general public. Because this rule does not directly regulate small entities, CBP certifies that this rule does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. VI.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    In a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) published on May 18, 
2009, in the Federal Register (74 FR 23133), Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) proposed to amend the list of CBP ports of entry at 19 
CFR 101.3(b)(1) to extend the limits of the port of Columbus, Ohio, to 
include the Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal and supporting 
infrastructure so that it will be within the newly defined port limits.
    In the NPRM, CBP explained that the current port limits of the 
Columbus, Ohio, port of entry are described in two separate Treasury 
Decisions (T.D.s): T.D. 82-9, published in the Federal Register (47 FR 
1286) on January 12, 1982 and effective February 11, 1982; and T.D. 96-
67, published in the Federal Register (61 FR 49058) on September 18, 
1996 and effective October 18, 1996.
    T.D. 82-9 specified the limits as follows:

    ``The geographical boundaries of the Columbus, Ohio, Customs 
port of entry include all of the territory within the corporate 
limits of Columbus, Ohio; all of the territory completely surrounded 
by the city of Columbus; and, all of the territory enclosed by 
Interstate Highway 270 (outer belt), which completely surrounds the 
city.''

    T.D. 96-67 expanded the port limits of Columbus, Ohio, to encompass 
the port limits set forth in T.D. 82-9 as well as the following 
territory:

    ``Beginning at the intersection of Rohr and Lockbourne Roads, 
then proceeding southerly along Lockbourne Road to Commerce Street, 
thence easterly along Commerce Street to its intersection with the N 
& W railroad tracks, then southerly along the N & W railroad tracks 
to the Franklin-Pickaway County line, thence easterly along the 
Franklin-Pickaway County line to its intersection with Pontius Road, 
then northerly along Pontius Road to its intersection with Rohr 
Road, thence westerly along Rohr Road to its intersection with 
Lockbourne Road, the point of beginning, all within the County of 
Franklin, State of Ohio.''

    CBP further explained in the NPRM that the Columbus Regional 
Airport Authority has partnered with the Norfolk Southern Corporation 
to create an intermodal facility immediately adjacent to Rickenbacker 
International Airport. In the NPRM, CBP stated that the creation of the 
new Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal is an important part of the 
Columbus Regional Airport Authority's plan to address a capacity 
problem at current facilities in the area. The terminal is located to 
the south of the current port boundaries.
    In order to accommodate the new facility and supporting 
infrastructure so that it falls within the newly defined port limits, 
the NPRM proposed to amend the port limits of the port of Columbus, 
Ohio. In the NPRM, CBP explained that this change will make the port 
boundaries more easily identifiable to the public and will result in 
better service that is provided by the port to the public by addressing 
a capacity problem at current facilities in the area. CBP determined 
that the change will not require a change in the staffing or workload 
at the port.
    Interested parties were given until July 17, 2009, to comment on 
the proposed changes. No comments were received in response to the 
notice. Accordingly, CBP has determined to

[[Page 63981]]

adopt the proposal as set forth in the NPRM published in the Federal 
Register (74 FR 23133) on May 18, 2009.

II. Conclusion

    CBP is extending the geographical limits of the port of Columbus, 
Ohio. CBP believes that extending the geographical limits of the port 
of Columbus, Ohio to include the Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal and 
supporting infrastructure will enable CBP to more efficiently utilize 
its personnel, facilities, and resources, and to provide better service 
to carriers, importers, and the general public. The port of entry 
description of Columbus, Ohio, will be revised as proposed in the NPRM.

III. Port Description of Columbus, Ohio

    The port limits of Columbus, Ohio, which are expanded to include 
the Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal and supporting infrastructure, 
encompass the port limits set forth in T.D. 82-9 and T.D. 96-67 and are 
as follows: The geographical boundaries of the Columbus, Ohio, port of 
entry include all of Franklin County, and that part of Pickaway County 
east of U.S. Route 23 and north of State Route 752, all in the State of 
Ohio.

IV. Authority

    This change is made under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 301; 19 U.S.C. 
2, 66, and 1624; and section 403 of the Homeland Security Act of 202, 
Public Law 107-296, 116 Stat. 2178 (Nov. 25, 2002) (6 U.S.C. 203).

V. Statutory and Regulatory Reviews

A. Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Planning and Review

    This rule is not considered to be an economically significant 
regulatory action under Executive Order 12866, because it will not 
result in the expenditure of over $100 million in any one year. The 
change is intended to expand the geographical boundaries of the Port of 
Columbus, Ohio, and make it more easily identifiable to the public. 
There are no new costs to the public associated with this rule. 
Accordingly, this rule has not been reviewed by the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) under Executive Order 12866.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires 
federal agencies to examine the impact a rule would have on small 
entities. A small entity may be a small business (defined as any 
independently owned and operated business not dominant in its field 
that qualifies as a small business per the Small Business Act); a small 
not-for-profit organization; or a small governmental jurisdiction 
(locality with fewer than 50,000 people).
    This rule does not directly regulate small entities. The change is 
part of CBP's continuing program to more efficiently utilize its 
personnel, facilities, and resources, and to provide better service to 
carriers, importers, and the general public. To the extent that all 
entities are able to more efficiently or conveniently access the 
facilities and resources within the expanded geographical area of the 
new port limits, this rule should confer benefits to CBP, carriers, 
importers, and the general public.
    Because this rule does not directly regulate small entities, CBP 
certifies that this rule does not have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial number of small entities.

VI. Signing Authority

    The signing authority for this document falls under 19 CFR 0.2(a) 
because the port extension is not within the bounds of those 
regulations for which the Secretary of the Treasury has retained sole 
authority. Accordingly, this final rule is signed by the Secretary of 
Homeland Security.
