The Proposal This action proposes to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by revising Class E airspace at Wiley Post/Will Rogers memorial Airport at Barrow, AK, to accommodate amended SIAPs and an ODP. This Class E airspace would provide adequate controlled airspace upward from the surface, and from 700 and 1,200 feet above the surface, to increase the safety of IFR operations at Wiley Post/Will Rogers Memorial Airport by ensuring that the Class E airspace is sufficient for the management of air traffic. The Class E2 surface areas are published in paragraph 6002 in FAA Order 7400.9U, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1,200 foot transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 in FAA Order 7400.9U, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document would be subsequently published 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 E:\FR\FM\22NOP1.SGM 22NOP1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 224 / Monday, November 22, 2010 / Proposed Rules 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. Because 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 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 1, Section 40103, Sovereignty and use of airspace. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it proposes to revise airspace at Barrow, Alaska, and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

Proposed rule. The Department of the Treasury proposes to amend our regulations which were promulgated pursuant to the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, as amended (the Act). Pursuant to the Act, with certain exceptions, Treasury has responsibility for payment of benefits based on service accrued as of June 30, 1997, under the retirement plans for District of Columbia teachers, police officers, and firefighters. Benefits for service after that date, and certain other benefits, are funded by the District of Columbia.

The Proposal

    This action proposes to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations 
(14 CFR) part 71 by revising Class E airspace at Wiley Post/Will Rogers 
memorial Airport at Barrow, AK, to accommodate amended SIAPs and an 
ODP. This Class E airspace would provide adequate controlled airspace 
upward from the surface, and from 700 and 1,200 feet above the surface, 
to increase the safety of IFR operations at Wiley Post/Will Rogers 
Memorial Airport by ensuring that the Class E airspace is sufficient 
for the management of air traffic.
    The Class E2 surface areas are published in paragraph 6002 in FAA 
Order 7400.9U, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 
18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/
1,200 foot transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 in FAA 
Order 7400.9U, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 
18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in 
this document would be subsequently published 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

[[Page 71047]]

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. Because 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 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 1, Section 40103, Sovereignty and use of 
airspace. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing 
regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable 
airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because 
it proposes to revise airspace at Barrow, Alaska, and represents the 
FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable 
airspace.
