Adoption of the Amendment The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by amending Class E airspace for the VerDate Nov<24>2008 Killeen, TX area, adding additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to accommodate SIAPs at Skylark Field Airport, and changing the airport′s name from Killeen Municipal Airport. Adjustments to the geographic coordinates and reclassification of the Iresh Nondirectional Radio Beacon (NDB) to the Iresh Locator Outer Marker (LOM) also will be made in accordance with the FAA’s National Aeronautical Charting Office. With the exception of these changes, this action is the same as that published in the NPRM. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. 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. 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, 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 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 amends controlled airspace at Skylark Field Airport, Killeen, TX. 17:01 Mar 31, 2010 Jkt 220001 In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR Part 71 as follows: ■ PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 16329 PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On January 25, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace for Killeen, 
TX, reconfiguring controlled airspace at Skylark Field Airport (75 FR 
3877) Docket No. FAA-2009-0928. 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 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9T 
signed August 27, 2009, 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 
the Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by amending Class E airspace for the Killeen, TX area, adding 
additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface to accommodate SIAPs at Skylark Field Airport, and changing the 
airport[min]s name from Killeen Municipal Airport. Adjustments to the 
geographic coordinates and reclassification of the Iresh Nondirectional 
Radio Beacon (NDB) to the Iresh Locator Outer Marker (LOM) also will be 
made in accordance with the FAA's National Aeronautical Charting 
Office. With the exception of these changes, this action is the same as 
that published in the NPRM. This action is necessary for the safety and 
management of IFR operations at the airport.
    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. 
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, 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 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 amends controlled airspace at Skylark Field Airport, Killeen, TX.
