Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Northway, AK, 45475-45477 [2011-19162]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 146 / Friday, July 29, 2011 / Proposed Rules negotiated rulemaking is inappropriate. Due to the court-ordered deadline, DOE plans for the subcommittee to conduct deliberations in the summer and fall of 2011 and hopes that the subcommittee will come to an agreement on a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in time to publish that proposal by the October 1, 2011 date contained in the settlement agreement described above. DOE will advise subcommittee members of administrative matters related to the functions of the subcommittee before beginning. DOE will establish a meeting schedule based on the settlement agreement and produce the necessary documents so as to adhere to that schedule. While the negotiated rulemaking process is underway, DOE is committed to performing much of the same analysis as it would during a normal standards rulemaking process and to providing information and technical support to the subcommittee. E. Facilitator The facilitator will act as a neutral in the substantive development of the proposed standard. Rather, the facilitator’s role generally includes: • Impartially assisting the members of the subcommittee in conducting discussions and negotiations; and • Impartially assisting in performing the duties of the Designated Federal Official under FACA. jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS amount of time, which must be sustained for as long as the duration of the negotiated rulemaking. Although the ERAC advisory committee charter will be in effect for 2 years from the date it is filed with Congress, DOE expects the subcommittee’s deliberations to conclude or be terminated earlier than that. Other qualities of members that can be helpful are negotiating experience and skills, and sufficient technical knowledge to participate in substantive negotiations. Certain concepts are central to negotiating in good faith. One is the willingness to bring all issues to the bargaining table in an attempt to reach a consensus, as opposed to keeping key issues in reserve. The second is a willingness to keep the issues at the table and not take them to other forums. Finally, good faith includes a willingness to move away from some of the positions often taken in a more traditional rulemaking process, and instead explore openly with other parties all ideas that may emerge from the subcommittee’s discussions. DOE requests comments on whether it should use negotiated rulemaking for its rulemaking pertaining to the energy efficiency of distribution transformers and the extent to which the issues, parties, and procedures described above are adequate and appropriate. DOE also requests comments on which parties should be included in a negotiated rulemaking to develop draft language pertaining to the energy efficiency of distribution transformers and suggestions of additional interests and/ or stakeholders that should be represented on the subcommittee. All who wish to participate as members of the subcommittee should submit a request for nomination to DOE. F. Department Representative The DOE representative will be a full and active participant in the consensusbuilding negotiations. The Department’s representative will meet regularly with senior Department officials, briefing them on the negotiations and receiving their suggestions and advice so that he or she can effectively represent the Department’s views regarding the issues before the subcommittee. DOE’s representative also will ensure that the entire spectrum of governmental interests affected by the standards rulemaking, including the Office of Management and Budget, the Attorney General, and other Departmental offices, are kept informed of the negotiations and encouraged to make their concerns known in a timely fashion. G. Subcommittee and Schedule After evaluating the comments submitted in response to this notice of intent and the requests for nominations, DOE will either inform the members of the subcommittee that they have been selected or determine that conducting a VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:15 Jul 28, 2011 Jkt 223001 IV.

The Proposal This action proposes to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by revising the Class E2 surface area and the Class E5 transitions areas at the Northway Airport in Northway, AK, to accommodate the revision of the RNAV (GPS) Runway 23 instrument approach procedure at the Northway Airport. This Class E airspace would provide adequate controlled airspace upward from the surface (E2) to 700 feet and 1,200 feet (E5) above the surface, for the safety and management of IFR operations at the Northway Airport. The Class E2 airspace designated as surface areas and the Class E5 airspace designated as 700/1200 foot transition areas are published in paragraphs 6002 and 6005, respectively, in FAA Order 7400.9U, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The airspaces listed in this document would be subsequently published in that 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. Because 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 United States 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 1, Section 40103, Sovereignty and use of airspace. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 because it proposes to revise Class E airspace at the Northway Airport, Northway, AK, and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

The Proposal

    This action proposes to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations 
(14 CFR) part 71 by revising the Class E2 surface area and the Class E5 
transitions areas at the Northway Airport in Northway, AK, to 
accommodate the revision of the RNAV (GPS) Runway 23 instrument 
approach procedure at the Northway Airport. This Class E airspace would 
provide adequate controlled airspace upward from the surface (E2) to 
700 feet and 1,200 feet (E5) above the surface, for the safety and 
management of IFR operations at the Northway Airport.
    The Class E2 airspace designated as surface areas and the Class E5 
airspace designated as 700/1200 foot transition areas are published in 
paragraphs 6002 and 6005, respectively, in FAA Order 7400.9U, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 18, 2010, and 
effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR 71.1. The airspaces listed in this document would be subsequently 
published in that 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. Because 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 United States 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 1, Section 40103, Sovereignty and use of 
airspace. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing 
regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable 
airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because 
it proposes to revise Class E airspace at the Northway Airport, 
Northway, AK, and represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and 
efficiently use the navigable airspace.
