An informal docket may also be examined during normal business hours at the office of the Eastern Service Center, Federal Aviation Administration, room 210, 1701 Columbia Avenue, College Park, Georgia 30337. Persons interested in being placed on a mailing list for future NPRM’s should contact the FAA’s Office of Rulemaking, (202) 267–9677, to request a copy of Advisory circular No. 11–2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking distribution System, which describes the application procedure. The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish Class E airspace at Forest, VA providing the controlled airspace required to support the new RNAV GPS standard instrument approach procedures for New London Airport. Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is required 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, VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:19 Jun 10, 2011 Jkt 223001 34197 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 establish Class E airspace at New London Airport, Forest, VA. Issued in College Park, Georgia on May 26, 2011. Mark D. Ward, Manager, Operations Support Group, Eastern Service Center, Air Traffic Organization. Lists of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 ACTION: Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (Air).

Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders. explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. Assistance for Small Entities This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. The proposed rule is not significant because the modification of an existing anchorage would not have any significant costs or impacts on maritime activities associated with it. Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this proposed rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the Waterways Management Branch, Coast Guard Sector Columbia River Oregon, telephone 503–240–9300. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. Small Entities Collection of Information Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this proposed rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule may affect the following entities some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels wishing to anchor in or transit the anchorage established by this rule. The rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because vessels will still be able to use this area of the river. As is the case under the existing regulation, small vessels in the anchorage would be required to move while vessels are entering and/or exiting the anchorage to ensure safety of the smaller vessel. Vessels would be able to use the anchorage while deep draft vessels are at anchor as long as they maintain a safe distance from the vessels and do not pose a threat to the large vessel or their own vessel. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see This proposed rule would call for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 Executive Order 12866 and Executive Order 13563 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:19 Jun 10, 2011 Jkt 223001 Federalism Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This proposed rule would not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. Frm 00023 Civil Justice Reform This proposed rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. Protection of Children We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children. Indian Tribal Governments This proposed rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it would not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. Energy Effects A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this proposed rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. PO 00000 34199 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or E:\FR\FM\13JNP1.SGM 13JNP1 34200 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 113 / Monday, June 13, 2011 / Proposed Rules adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA)(42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. This proposed rule involves increasing the size of an anchorage, which is categorically excluded, under Figure 2–1, paragraph 34(f) of the Instruction. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule.

Basis and Purpose

    Based on current usage and forecasted growth in shipping on the 
Columbia River, the Captain of the Port Columbia River believes that 
the Cottonwood Island Anchorage's size is insufficient as currently 
established. This rule would increase the size of the Cottonwood Island 
Anchorage on the Columbia River to help ensure that there is sufficient 
space to accommodate vessels needing to anchor at the anchorage.

Discussion of Proposed Rule

    This proposed rule would extend the east side of the existing 
Cottonwood Island Anchorage by approximately one mile. The new 
anchorage would encompass all waters of the Columbia River enclosed by 
a line beginning west-southwest of Longview, WA at latitude 46[deg] 05' 
56.83'' N longitude 122[deg] 56' 53.22'' W; thence continuing easterly 
to latitude 46[deg] 05' 14.02'' N longitude 122[deg] 54' 45.75'' W; 
thence continuing east-southeasterly to latitude 46[deg] 04' 57.08'' N 
longitude 122[deg] 54' 12.46'' W; thence continuing southeasterly to 
latitude 46[deg] 04' 37.26'' N longitude 122[deg] 53' 45.50'' W; thence 
continuing south-southeasterly to latitude 46[deg] 04' 13.70'' N 
longitude 122[deg] 53' 23.72'' W; thence continuing south southeasterly 
to latitude 46[deg] 03' 54.92'' N longitude 122[deg] 53' 11.88'' W; 
thence continuing south-southeasterly to latitude 46[deg] 03' 34.95'' N 
longitude 122[deg] 53' 03.24'' W; thence continuing south-southeasterly 
to latitude 46[deg] 03' 11.60'' N longitude 122[deg] 52' 56.36'' W; 
thence continuing southerly to latitude 46[deg] 02' 27.30'' N longitude 
122[deg] 52' 52.05'' W; thence continuing westerly to latitude 46[deg] 
02' 26.90'' N longitude 122[deg] 53' 00.47'' W; thence continuing 
northerly to latitude 46[deg] 03' 00.78'' N longitude 122[deg] 53' 
05.89'' W; thence continuing north-northwesterly to latitude 46[deg] 
03' 32.06'' N longitude 122[deg] 53' 19.68'' W; thence continuing 
north-northwesterly to latitude 46[deg] 03' 50.84'' N longitude 
122[deg] 53' 27.81'' W; thence continuing north-northwesterly to 
latitude 46[deg] 04' 08.10'' N longitude 122[deg] 53' 38.70'' W; thence 
continuing north-northwesterly to latitude 46[deg] 04' 29.41'' N 
longitude 122[deg] 53' 58.17'' W; thence continuing north-northwesterly 
to latitude 46[deg] 04' 49.89'' N longitude 122[deg] 54' 21.57'' W; 
thence continuing northwesterly to latitude 46[deg] 05' 06.95'' N 
longitude 122[deg] 54' 50.65'' W; thence continuing northwesterly to 
latitude 46[deg] 05' 49.77'' N longitude 122[deg] 56' 58.12'' W; thence 
continuing north-northeasterly to the beginning point at latitude 
46[deg] 05' 56.83'' N longitude 122[deg] 56' 53.22'' W.
    The previously existing anchorage ends and the new extended portion 
of the anchorage proceeds southerly from the points at latitude 46[deg] 
03' 34.95'' N longitude 122[deg] 53' 03.24'' W and latitude 46[deg] 03' 
32.06'' N and longitude 122[deg] 53' 19.68'' W.
    Geographically this amendment would extend the current anchorage 
from the east end of Cottonwood Island in the vicinity of the spoil 
area to approximately the Kalama North dock and the previous site of 
the Trojan plant.
    This anchorage location was chosen because it is a central 
anchorage for vessels coming both upriver and downriver. It would allow 
vessels a safe place to stop in the event they can no longer transit 
the river due to weather conditions or safety conditions. This area of 
the river also has a naturally occurring deep water section that is 
adjacent to the existing anchorage that allows for the safe anchoring 
of deep draft vessels.

Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our 
analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders.

Executive Order 12866 and Executive Order 13563

    This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action under 
section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, 
as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, and does not require an 
assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of 
that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it 
under that Order. The proposed rule is not significant because the 
modification of an existing anchorage would not have any significant 
costs or impacts on maritime activities associated with it.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this proposed rule would have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ``small 
entities'' comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations 
that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their 
fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 
50,000.
    The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this proposed 
rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities. This rule may affect the following entities 
some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels 
wishing to anchor in or transit the anchorage established by this rule. 
The rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities because vessels will still be able to use this 
area of the river. As is the case under the existing regulation, small 
vessels in the anchorage would be required to move while vessels are 
entering and/or exiting the anchorage to ensure safety of the smaller 
vessel. Vessels would be able to use the anchorage while deep draft 
vessels are at anchor as long as they maintain a safe distance from the 
vessels and do not pose a threat to the large vessel or their own 
vessel.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this proposed rule so that they can better 
evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the 
rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please contact the Waterways Management Branch, 
Coast Guard Sector Columbia River Oregon, telephone 503-240-9300. The 
Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or 
complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast 
Guard.

Collection of Information

    This proposed rule would call for no new collection of information 
under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this proposed rule 
under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications 
for federalism.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Though this proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule 
elsewhere in this preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This proposed rule would not cause a taking of private property or 
otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, 
Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected 
Property Rights.

Civil Justice Reform

    This proposed rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 
3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize 
litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, 
Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety 
Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not 
create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
disproportionately affect children.

Indian Tribal Governments

    This proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments, because it would not have a substantial direct effect on 
one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal 
Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13211, 
Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects 
under Executive Order 13211.

Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards 
in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, 
through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why 
using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical 
standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or 
operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management 
systems practices) that are developed or

[[Page 34200]]

adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies.
    This proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we 
did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland 
Security Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction 
M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA)(42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have 
made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category 
of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant 
effect on the human environment. A preliminary environmental analysis 
checklist supporting this determination is available in the docket 
where indicated under ADDRESSES. This proposed rule involves increasing 
the size of an anchorage, which is categorically excluded, under Figure 
2-1, paragraph 34(f) of the Instruction. We seek any comments or 
information that may lead to the discovery of a significant 
environmental impact from this proposed rule.
