Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 157 / Monday, August 16, 2010 / Proposed Rules 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 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 controlled airspace at Kalaupapa Airport. 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: PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1. The authority citation for 14 CFR part 71 continues to read as follows: Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O. 10854, 24 FR 9565, 3 CFR, 1959– 1963 Comp., p. 389. WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with PROPOSALS § 71.1 [Amended] 2. The incorporation by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 of the FAA Order 7400.9T, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 27, 2009, and effective September 15, 2009 is amended as follows: Paragraph 6005 Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth. * * * VerDate Mar<15>2010 * * 14:10 Aug 13, 2010 Jkt 220001 AWP HI E5 Kalaupapa, HI [New] Kalaupapa Airport, HI (Lat. 21°12′40″ N., long. 156°58′25″ W.)

We have received comments from the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) and the National Marine Manufacturer’s Association (NMMA), each requesting a 90 day extension of the comment period. The NASBLA comment letter noted that the NPRM would be a topic of discussion during their annual conference, which will be held from September 10–14, 2010. Since the comment period has already closed, the Coast Guard will reopen it for an additional period of 60 days. The Coast Guard has determined that reopening the comment period for a period of 60 days is consistent with the public interest.

Reopening of Comment Period

    On May 7, 2010, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
in the Federal Register (75 FR 25137) proposing changes in the Standard 
Numbering System, Vessel Identification System, and Boating Accident 
Report Database that, collectively, are intended to improve 
recreational boating safety efforts, enhance law enforcement 
capabilities, advance maritime security, and clarify requirements for 
all stakeholders. The NPRM announced a 90 day public comment period 
that closed on August 5, 2010.
    We have received comments from the National Association of State 
Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) and the National Marine 
Manufacturer's Association (NMMA), each requesting a 90 day extension 
of the comment period. The NASBLA comment letter noted that the NPRM 
would be a topic of discussion during their annual conference, which 
will be held from September 10-14, 2010. Since the comment period has 
already closed, the Coast Guard will reopen it for an additional period 
of 60 days. The Coast Guard has determined that reopening the comment 
period for a period of 60 days is consistent with the public interest. 
This will allow the comment period to coincide with the NASBLA annual 
conference and allow members to discuss the NPRM and submit comments 
after the conference. Adding 60 days to the original 90 day comment 
period strikes a balance between allowing adequate time to comment on 
the NPRM and allowing the agency to move forward with the rulemaking 
project. Accordingly, the comment period is reopened until October 15, 
2010.
    This document is issued under authority of 5 U.S.C. 553.
