Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Orangeburg, SC, 12298-12300 [2011-5096]

Download as PDF 12298 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 44 / Monday, March 7, 2011 / Proposed Rules liability by providing ‘clear and convincing evidence’ that they would have taken the same personnel action * * *’’). By contrast, in cases where the staff has stronger evidence that protected activity was a contributing factor, such as when a document or employer’s statements confirm an allegation of whistleblower discrimination, it would be unlikely that the employer could make its case by clear and convincing evidence that it would have taken the adverse action regardless. Thus, the Commission in TVA did not condone ‘‘some amount of retaliation’’; rather, it established the standards for determining the existence of whistleblower discrimination if a violation is challenged by an employer. In deciding TVA, the Commission looked to Section 211 for procedural guidance in applying Section 50.7 and generally adopted Section 211’s overall framework. Id. at 194. The Commission, however, is not required to follow Section 211’s evidentiary standard. Id. at 193–194.5 Section 211 establishes DOL’s authority to take action in cases involving whistleblower discrimination, id. at 194, but the NRC’s authority to regulate against employee discrimination is derived from the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Therefore, Section 211 should not be construed as directing the NRC’s evidentiary approach. Further, contrary to the petitioner’s assertion, the discrimination data from 1999–2009 do not appear to evidence any meaningful trends because the data fluctuates up and down during the years prior to and following TVA (2004); in some years since TVA, the number of discrimination claims filed is higher than in the years directly preceding TVA and in others that number is lower. Also, because the data does not differentiate claims failing to meet the threshold prima facie determination from those that were withdrawn by the alleger or came to the NRC as thirdparty claims,6 it is unknown whether there is any change in the percentage of discrimination allegations that were dismissed or withdrawn because they failed to meet the threshold for investigation, as the petitioner asserts.

Finally, the TVA decision has had no effect on the way the NRC staff approaches or evaluates whistleblower discrimination claims. That is, the NRC staff continues to issue notices of violations of the Employee Protection Rule to licensees, applicants, and contractors or subcontractors of licensees and applicants based on its assessment as to whether the evidence shows that protected activity was a contributing factor in the adverse action, while also taking into consideration credible evidence that the employer would have taken the same personnel action regardless of the protected activity. prepare a notice of receipt and request for comment, and instead began consideration of the request. Accordingly, there are no public comments on this petition.

The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class E airspace at Orangeburg, SC to provide controlled airspace required to support the SIAPs for Orangeburg Municipal Airport. The existing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be modified for the safety and management of IFR operations. 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 Orangeburg Municipal Airport, Orangeburg, SC.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 7, 2010, the FAA published Notice No. 10–14, entitled ‘‘Safety Management System for Certificated Airports’’ (75 FR 62008). Comments to that document were to be received on or before January 5, 2011. On December 10, 2010, in response to several requests for extension of the comment period, the FAA granted an additional 60 days for commenters to analyze the NPRM and provide meaningful comment (75 FR 76928). By comments posted to the docket on February 17, 2011, Airport Council International—North America (ACI–NA) and the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) requested the FAA extend the comment period for a second time. ACI–NA and AAAE also requested the FAA provide additional information to allow for meaningful comment on the proposed rule. Specifically, ACI–NA made the following requests: (1) Additional information is needed regarding the FAA’s proposed SMS implementation strategy, most notably what will be expected in the required SMS Implementation Plans. (2) Data, findings, and conclusion— both positive and negative—from the three SMS pilot studies need to be made available in the docket so these findings and conclusions can inform the industry’s review of the costs, benefits, and potential issues arising from the implementation of the proposed rule. (3) The proposed rule needs to be reviewed in conjunction with key guidance documents, especially the revised version of FAA Advisory Circular 150/5200–37. These documents, which are mentioned explicitly in the FAA’s discussion of the proposed rule will describe the standard means of compliance with the proposed rule and are needed to understand the scope and scale of airport SMS requirements. (4) Additional time will be needed for technical analysis by commenters, including analyses of the costs and benefits of phased SMS implementation, PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 an implementation approach on which the FAA has specifically requested comments. AAAE made the following requests: (1) We request that the FAA make results and recommendations from all three phases of the pilot studies available before closing the comment period. (2) The FAA is under a statutory deadline to implement the part 121 SMS rule and has proposed a short time schedule for issuing its part 139 training requirements. We request that the comment period remain open until the other regulatory documents have been issued in their final form. (3) The agency also has committed to issuing an advisory circular on implementation of SMS requirements. We request that the agency leave the comment period open on the proposed SMS rule until at least a draft of the advisory circular is issued. That way, respondents can comment on both documents simultaneously. AAAE suggests the comment period remain open until at least September 30, 2011. FAA Response to the Requests The FAA has carefully considered the requests for extension of the comment period. The FAA believes that the narrative and analysis in the NPRM and Initial Regulatory Evaluation, which was made available in the docket concurrently with NPRM publication, contain sufficient detail and supporting data to permit meaningful comment by the public. The FAA also notes that it has received thoughtful comments from several airports, indicating that sufficient information currently exists in the docket to permit meaningful comment. However, the FAA acknowledges there is a belief among some members of the public that additional information may result in better comments. From the request submitted, it appears the bulk of this concern involves the FAA’s implementation strategy for SMS and the results of the pilot study. To address this concern about insufficient information, the FAA has determined to pursue a combination of strategies. First, the FAA will accept and respond to specific clarifying questions submitted by the public. This strategy will allow the public to identify specific areas of the NPRM or Initial Regulatory Evaluation that are unclear or for which more information may be desired. The intent is that the public would be able to obtain specific information from the FAA, provided that information exists. The specific procedure is discussed in the E:\FR\FM\07MRP1.SGM 07MRP1

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class E airspace at Orangeburg, 
SC to provide controlled airspace required to support the SIAPs for 
Orangeburg Municipal Airport. The existing Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface would be modified for the safety 
and management of IFR operations.
    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 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 Orangeburg 
Municipal Airport, Orangeburg, SC.
