The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace at Driggs, ID, to accommodate aircraft using RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at Driggs-Reed Memorial Airport. The airport name also would be corrected from Teton Peaks/Driggs Municipal Airport to Driggs-Reed Memorial Airport, and the geographic coordinates of the airport would be updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005, of FAA Order 7400.9V, dated August 9, 2011, and effective September 15, 2011, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. The FAA has determined this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed 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 this proposed rule, when promulgated, 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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, section 106, describes the authority for 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 the E:\FR\FM\13SEP1.SGM 13SEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 177 / Tuesday, September 13, 2011 / Proposed Rules airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace.

We follow each step in a set order. If we can find that a claimant is disabled or not disabled at a step, we do not go on to the next step.3 If we cannot find that a claimant is disabled or not disabled at a step, we evaluate the claim at the next step in the sequential evaluation process.4 The following is a general overview of the five steps. At step 1, we consider whether a claimant is working and whether the work qualifies as ‘‘substantial gainful 1 20 CFR 404.1520 and 416.920. claimant is disabled if he or she is unable to do any substantial gainful activity because he or she has a medically determinable physical or mental impairment that can be expected to result in death or can be expected to last for a period of at least 12 continuous months.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace at Driggs, 
ID, to accommodate aircraft using RNAV (GPS) standard instrument 
approach procedures at Driggs-Reed Memorial Airport. The airport name 
also would be corrected from Teton Peaks/Driggs Municipal Airport to 
Driggs-Reed Memorial Airport, and the geographic coordinates of the 
airport would be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database. This action would enhance the safety and management of IFR 
operations at the airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005, of 
FAA Order 7400.9V, dated August 9, 2011, and effective September 15, 
2011, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this Order.
    The FAA has determined this proposed regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed 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 this proposed rule, when 
promulgated, 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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, section 106, describes 
the authority for 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 the

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 establish additional controlled airspace at Driggs-Reed 
Memorial Airport, Driggs, ID.
