SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On October 26, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend controlled airspace at Rawlins, 
WY (75 FR 65582). Interested parties were invited to participate in 
this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal 
to the FAA. No comments were received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 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 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 surface airspace at Rawlins Municipal 
Airport/Harvey Field. The airspace is being reconfigured due to the 
decommissioning of the Sinclair NDB, and cancellation of the NDB 
approach. 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 Rawlins Municipal Airport/Harvey Field, Rawlins, 
WY.
