The Proposal

    This action proposes to amend Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations 
(14 CFR), part 71 by removing Class E airspace designated as an 
extension to a Class D or E surface area, and modifying Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, for standard 
instrument approach procedures at

Johnson County Executive Airport, Olathe, KS. Airspace reconfiguration 
is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Johnson County VOR/DME 
and cancellation of the VOR approach. Controlled airspace is necessary 
for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.
    Class E airspace areas are published in Paragraphs 6004 and 6005, 
respectively, 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 
would 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 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 would modify controlled airspace at Johnson County Executive 
Airport, Olathe, KS.
