Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Livermore, CA, 28305-28306 [2011-11695]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 95 / Tuesday, May 17, 2011 / Rules and Regulations USCIS has no overseas office and 6,576 in countries where USCIS is located.1 In FY 2010, DOS began charging USCIS for services rendered in accepting or processing relative petitions. As a feefunded agency, USCIS is statutorily authorized to collect fees at a level that will ensure recovery of the full costs of providing adjudication and naturalization services, including administrative costs and services provided without charge to certain applicants and petitioners. See INA section 286(m), 8 U.S.C. 1356(m). The current fee of $420 for a relative petition does not cover the DOS charges. Therefore, DHS will adjust its internal processes to avoid the DOS charge, thereby maintaining the integrity of the current fee schedule for relative petitions. Instructions for filing relative petitions will be amended concurrently with this final rule. Instructions for filing relative petitions will provide the option of either mailing the petition to the USCIS Chicago Lockbox, or filing at the USCIS international office if the petitioner resides in a country where USCIS has an office. Depending upon the unique circumstances of the United States citizen or lawful permanent resident petitioner, this rule could result in a cost savings or additional burden to the petitioner. Travel costs and mailing costs vary widely among individual petitioners. Thus, DHS cannot precisely estimate the costs or savings impacts of the rule. For example, when a petitioner resides in a country with no USCIS presence, the rule could provide a cost savings if mailing the petition is less expensive than the cost of traveling to the nearest DOS office, or vice versa. DHS believes that the benefits of streamlining USCIS operations in processing alien relative petitions to avoid DOS charges justifies the potential cost impact on petitioners residing in international locations. jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with RULES F. Executive Order 13132 This rule will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the National Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with section 6 of Executive 1 It is not always clear to what extent DOS processes each alien relative petition from examining the volume data. In some cases, DOS is able to fully adjudicate and process the petition, while more complex adjudicative cases are forwarded to USCIS for processing and decision. Thus, DHS is hesitant to draw statistical comparisons between DOS and DHS processing data, especially in cases where there is a USCIS international office. VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:18 May 16, 2011 Jkt 223001 Order 13132, DHS has determined that this rule does not have sufficient Federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a Federalism summary impact statement. G. Executive Order 12988: Civil Justice Reform This rule meets the applicable standards set forth in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988. H. Paperwork Reduction Act Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), DHS submits to OMB for review and approval any reporting or recordkeeping requirements inherent in a regulatory action. 44 U.S.C. 3506. The information collection burden for the Petition for Alien Relative has been approved by OMB and assigned OMB control number 1615–0012. This rule does not impose any new reporting or recordkeeping requirements under the PRA. However, USCIS is making minor changes to the Petition for Alien Relative (Form I–130) instructions to instruct petitioners about where to file. Accordingly, USCIS will submit a Correction Worksheet, Form OMB 83–C, and amended instructions to OMB for review and approval in accordance with the PRA. List of Subjects in 8 CFR Part 204 Administrative practice and procedures, Immigration, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements. Accordingly, DHS is amending part 204 of chapter I of title 8 of the Code of Federal Regulations as follows: PART 204—IMMIGRANT PETITIONS 1. The authority citation for part 204 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 8 U.S.C. 1101, 1103, 1151, 1153, 1154, 1182, 1184, 1186a, 1255; 1641; 8 CFR part 2. Subpart A—Immigrant Visa Petitions 2. Section 204.1 is amended by revising paragraph (b) and removing and reserving paragraphs (c), (d), and (e).

Also, this action corrects a typographic error in the regulatory text of the Class D airspace area by correcting the word ‘iport’ to ‘Airport’. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On February 14, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend controlled airspace at 
Livermore, CA (76 FR 8322). 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 D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9U dated 
August 18, 2010,

[[Page 28306]]

and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 
14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and 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 modifying Class E extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface, at Livermore Municipal Airport, Livermore, CA, to accommodate 
IFR aircraft executing new ILS LOC standard instrument approach 
procedures at the airport, and adds the airport name and geographic 
coordinates to the airspace designation. Also, this action corrects a 
typographic error in the regulatory text of the Class D airspace area 
by correcting the word `iport' to `Airport'. 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 establishes 
additional controlled airspace at Livermore Municipal Airport, 
Livermore, CA.
