SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 



History



    On April 19, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 

notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace for 

Harrisonville, MO, creating additional controlled airspace at Lawrence 

Smith Memorial Airport (76 FR 21830) Docket No. FAA-2011-0251. 

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 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 the Order.



The Rule



    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 

part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 

above the surface for new standard instrument approach procedures at 

Lawrence Smith Memorial Airport, Harrisonville, MO. This action is 

necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the 

airport. Geographic coordinates are also being updated to coincide with 

the FAA's aeronautical database.

    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, describes 

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 amends controlled airspace for Lawrence Smith Memorial Airport, 

Harrisonville, MO.
