The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR Part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: History On July 19, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend controlled airspace at Arco, ID (75 FR 41773). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to publication, the FAA found the geographic coordinates of the airport needed to be adjusted. This action makes the adjustment. With the exception of editorial changes, and the changes described above, this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, 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 that Order. WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with RULES The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by amending Class E extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at ArcoButte County Airport, Arco, ID. Decommissioning of the Arco-Butte County NDB has made this action necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The geographic coordinates of the airport also will be adjusted to coincide with the FAA’s National Aeronautical Navigation Services. The FAA has determined 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:06 Oct 05, 2010 Jkt 223001 61611 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 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 discusses 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 Arco-Butte County Airport, Arco, ID. That airspace extending from 700 feet above the surface within a 7-mile radius of the Arco-Butte County Airport; that airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface bounded by a line beginning at 68.5 miles northwest of the Pocatello VORTAC on V–269, thence southeast along V–269 to 53 miles northwest of the Pocatello VORTAC on V–269, thence to 29 miles south of the DuBois VORTAC on V–257, thence south along V–257 to V–365, thence southeast along V–365 to the Burley VOR/DME, thence northwest along V–231 to 29 miles northwest of the Burley VOR/DME on V–231, to the point of beginning.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background On November 30, 1999 (64 FR 66768), the FAA published a final rule that revised 14 CFR part 91. In the final rule, § 91.215(b)(2) states ‘‘* * *from the surface upward to 10,000 MSL* * *’’ The corresponding text in section 1 of Appendix D should be consistent in describing the altitude as ‘‘MSL’’ but inadvertently was changed from MSL to ‘‘above the surface.’’ Therefore, this action will correct this inconsistency and change the phrase from ‘‘above the surface’’ to ‘‘MSL’’ in section 1 of Appendix D. As this rule simply corrects an inconsistency in the terminology used to describe altitudes, good cause exists for adopting this amendment without public notice or comment as provided under 5 U.S.C. 553(b). Furthermore, the FAA finds that good cause exists pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d) for making E:\FR\FM\06OCR1.SGM 06OCR1

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action will amend Class E airspace at San Clemente, CA. 
Decommissioning of the San Clemente Island Non-Directional Radio Beacon 
(NDB) at San Clemente Island NALF (Frederick Sherman Field) has made 
this action necessary for the safety and management of Instrument 
Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also makes a 
minor adjustment to the geographic coordinates of the airport.

DATES: Effective date, 0901 UTC, January 13, 2011. The Director of the 
Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On July 20, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend

[[Page 61612]]

controlled airspace at San Clemente, CA (75 FR 42014). Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments 
were received. Subsequent to publication, the FAA found the geographic 
coordinates of the airport needed to be adjusted. This action makes the 
adjustment. With the exception of editorial changes, and the changes 
described above, this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6004, of 
FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 
2010, 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 that Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by amending Class E airspace designated as an extension to a 
Class D surface area, at San Clemente Island NALF (Fredrick Sherman 
Field), San Clemente, CA. The San Clemente Island NDB has been 
decommissioned, and the NDB approach canceled. This action will also 
update the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the 
FAA's National Aeronautical Navigation Services. This action is 
necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations.
    The FAA has determined 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 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 discusses 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 San Clemente Island NALF (Fredrick Sherman 
Field), San Clemente, CA.
