SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On February 16, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to establish additional controlled 
airspace at Poplar, MT (76 FR 8921). Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on 
the proposal to the FAA. The FAA received one comment suggesting 
omitting language in the legal description relating to Federal airways 
and the Wolf Point, MT, Class E airspace area. The FAA found merit in 
this comment, and will make the change to the legal description. With 
the exception of editorial changes and the changes described above, 
this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM.
    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 Part 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 airspace at Poplar Municipal Airport, 
Poplar, MT. The airport was moved 1.5 nautical miles to the northeast, 
and controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface is necessary to accommodate IFR aircraft executing new RNAV 
(GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at Poplar Municipal 
Airport. This enhances the safety and management of IFR operations at 
the airport. This action also notes the change in the airport name from 
Poplar Airport to Poplar Municipal Airport.
    The FAA has determined that 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 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 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 Poplar Municipal Airport, Poplar, MT.
