This action would also add additional controlled Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to accommodate new SIAPs at the airport, and would remove Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D surface area to eliminate controlled airspace not required for the new SIAPs developed for Vero Beach Municipal Airport. Class E airspace designated as surface areas, Class E airspace areas designated as an extension to a Class D surface area, and Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 6002, 6004, and 6005, 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 E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:52 Oct 25, 2010 Jkt 223001 routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 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 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 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 proposed 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 proposed regulation is within the scope of that authority as it would amend Class E airspace at Vero Beach Municipal Airport, Vero Beach, FL.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class E airspace designated as 
surface area to remove any reference to the decommissioned Vero Beach 
NDB at Vero Beach Municipal Airport, Vero Beach, FL. This action would 
also add additional controlled Class E airspace extending upward from 
700 feet above the surface to accommodate new SIAPs at the airport, and 
would remove Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D 
surface area to eliminate controlled airspace not required for the new 
SIAPs developed for Vero Beach Municipal Airport. Class E airspace 
designated as surface areas, Class E airspace areas designated as an 
extension to a Class D surface area, and Class E airspace areas 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth are 
published in Paragraph 6002, 6004, and 6005, 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 E airspace 
designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
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 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 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 proposed 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 proposed regulation is within the scope 
of that authority as it would amend Class E airspace at Vero Beach 
Municipal Airport, Vero Beach, FL.
