Persons interested in being placed on a mailing list for future NPRMs should contact the FAA’s Office of Rulemaking, (202) 267–9677, for a copy of Advisory Circular No. 11–2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application procedure. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace designated as an extension to PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 19281 Class D surface area at Gallatin Field Airport, Bozeman, MT. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using the ILS LOC standard instrument approach procedures at the airport and would enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations. The geographic coordinates of the Gallatin Field Airport for Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, would be adjusted in accordance with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action would also update the airport name from Bozeman, Gallatin Field Airport, MT, to Gallatin Field Airport. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 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 Part 71.1. The Class D and Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. The FAA has determined this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed 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 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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, section 106, describes the authority for 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 the 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 establishes additional controlled airspace at Gallatin Field Airport, Bozeman, MT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) proposes to amend its regulations related to direct investment surveys. Specifically, BEA proposes to eliminate reporting requirements for several direct investment surveys that are no longer necessary because the information is collected on other surveys of direct investment conducted by BEA. The surveys that would be eliminated from the regulations are: a survey of foreign direct investment in the U.S. seafood industry (BE–21), two schedules of expenditures for property, plant, and equipment of U.S. direct investment abroad (BE–133B and BE– 133C), and two industry classification questionnaires (BE–507 and BE–607). In addition, BEA proposes to eliminate the reporting requirements for two surveys of new foreign direct investment in the United States (BE–13 and BE–14). BEA suspended collection of these surveys in 2009 in order to align its international survey program with available resources. BEA also proposes other minor revisions to its regulations to eliminate outdated information.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace designated 
as an extension to Class D surface area at Gallatin Field Airport, 
Bozeman, MT. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft 
using the ILS LOC standard instrument approach procedures at the 
airport and would enhance the safety and management of aircraft 
operations. The geographic coordinates of the Gallatin Field Airport 
for Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, would be 
adjusted in accordance with the FAA's aeronautical database. This 
action would also update the airport name from Bozeman, Gallatin Field 
Airport, MT, to Gallatin Field Airport.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 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 Part 71.1. The Class D and Class 
E airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this Order.
    The FAA has determined this proposed regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed 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 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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, section 106, describes 
the authority for 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 the 
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 establishes additional controlled airspace at Gallatin Field 
Airport, Bozeman, MT.
