SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with RULES 15:19 Sep 27, 2010 On August 9, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class D and E airspace, and establish Class E surface airspace at Patuxent River NAS (Trapnell Field), Patuxent River, MD (75 FR 47736) Docket No. FAA–2010–0428. Subsequent to publication the FAA received a request from the National Aeronautical Navigation Services to correct the geographic coordinates of the airfield, and for charting purposes, combine two closely located descriptions in both Class E airspace areas at Patuxent River NAS, Patuxent River, MD. This action makes these corrections. With the exception of editorial changes, and the changes described above this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM. Interested persons were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6002, and 6004 of FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. The Rule SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 History Jkt 220001 This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class D airspace and Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D surface area at Patuxent River NAS (Trapnell Field), Patuxent River, MD, to reflect the part-time operations of the airport control tower, establishing in advance the dates and times by a Notice to Airmen, and establishes Class E surface area airspace to provide controlled airspace required to support the SIAPs developed for Patuxent River NAS. The geographic coordinates of Patuxent River NAS (Trapnell Field) will be corrected to coincide with the FAA’s National Aeronautical Navigation Services. The Class E surface area airspace and Class E airspace designated as extensions to Class D surface area 233° and the 235° radials will be combined to coincide with aeronautical charting. Class D airspace designations, Class E surface airspace designations and Class E airspace designations as extensions to a Class D surface area are published in Paragraph 5000, 6002, and 6004 respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9U, dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. 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, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. It, therefore, (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 United States Code. Subtitle I, 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 Class D and existing Class E airspace and establishes Class E airspace designated as surface areas at Patuxent River NAS (Trapnell Field), Patuxent River, MD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Comprehensive Smokeless Tobacco Health Education Act of 1986 (‘‘Smokeless Tobacco Act’’), Pub. L. 99252, 100 Stat. 30 (1986), required manufacturers, importers, and packagers of smokeless tobacco products to display on a rotating basis one of three statutory health warnings on product packages and in most advertising (other than billboards). The Smokeless Tobacco Act also directed the FTC to issue implementing regulations governing the format and display of the health warnings, and to review and approve (if appropriate) plans specifying how smokeless tobacco companies planned to comply with the rotational warning requirements specified in the Smokeless Tobacco Act and the implementing regulations. 15 U.S.C. 4402 (1986) (amended 2009). The Commission issued its smokeless tobacco regulations, 16 CFR Part 307, on November 4, 1986.1 51 FR 40015. II. Basis for Removal of Regulations On June 22, 2009, President Obama signed into law the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, Pub. L. No. 111-31, 123 Stat. 1776 (2009) (‘‘Family Smoking Prevention Act’’). The Family Smoking Prevention Act, among other things, amended the Smokeless Tobacco Act to change the language of the existing three statutory health warnings and add a fourth warning, and to require new size, format, and display requirements for the statutory health warnings. Family Smoking Prevention Act, § 204. The Family Smoking Prevention Act also gave the Secretary of DHHS authority to change the warning statements and the size, format, and display requirements of those warnings, and transferred authority over the review and approval of rotational warning plans from the Commission to the Secretary. Family Smoking Prevention Act, § 205. These amendments to the Smokeless Tobacco Act became effective on June 22, 2010. Earlier this year, the Commission terminated its regulatory review of the smokeless tobacco regulations, citing the enactment of the Family Smoking Prevention Act. 75 FR 3665 (Jan. 22, 1 The regulations were amended in 1991 to include provisions for the rotation and display of the statutory warnings on utilitarian items. 56 FR 11654 (Mar. 20, 1991).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On August 9, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class D and E airspace, and 
establish Class E surface airspace at Patuxent River NAS (Trapnell 
Field), Patuxent River, MD (75 FR 47736) Docket No. FAA-2010-0428. 
Subsequent to publication the FAA received a request from the National 
Aeronautical Navigation Services to correct the geographic coordinates 
of the airfield, and for charting purposes, combine two closely located 
descriptions in both Class E airspace areas at Patuxent River NAS, 
Patuxent River, MD. This action makes these corrections. With the 
exception of editorial changes, and the changes described above this 
rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM.
    Interested persons were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No 
comments were received. Class D and E airspace designations are 
published in paragraph 5000, 6002, and 6004 of FAA Order 7400.9U dated 
August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is 
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E airspace 
designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends Class D airspace and Class E airspace designated as an 
extension to Class D surface area at Patuxent River NAS (Trapnell 
Field), Patuxent River, MD, to reflect the part-time operations of the 
airport control tower, establishing in advance the dates and times by a 
Notice to Airmen, and establishes Class E surface area airspace to 
provide controlled airspace required to support the SIAPs developed for 
Patuxent River NAS. The geographic coordinates of Patuxent River NAS 
(Trapnell Field) will be corrected to coincide with the FAA's National 
Aeronautical Navigation Services. The Class E surface area airspace and 
Class E airspace designated as extensions to Class D surface area 
233[deg] and the 235[deg] radials will be combined to coincide with 
aeronautical charting.
    Class D airspace designations, Class E surface airspace 
designations and Class E airspace designations as extensions to a Class 
D surface area are published in Paragraph 5000, 6002, and 6004 
respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9U, dated August 18, 2010, and 
effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR 71.1. The Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this 
document will be published subsequently in the Order.
    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, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore, (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 United States Code. Subtitle I, 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 Class D and existing Class E airspace and establishes 
Class E airspace designated as surface areas at Patuxent River NAS 
(Trapnell Field), Patuxent River, MD.
