SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: History On July 8, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of E:\FR\FM\15SER1.SGM 15SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 179 / Thursday, September 15, 2011 / Rules and Regulations wreier-aviles on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with RULES proposed rulemaking to amend controlled airspace at Grand Junction, CO (76 FR 40293). 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 D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6002, 6004 and 6005, respectively, 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 D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace at Grand Junction Regional Airport, Grand Junction, CO. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface is necessary to accommodate vectoring IFR aircraft departing Grand Junction Regional Airport to en route airspace. This action also amends Class D and Class E airspace to update the airport name from Grand Junction, Walker Field, to Grand Junction Regional Airport, Grand Junction, CO. The FAA has determined 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 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 discusses 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:02 Sep 14, 2011 Jkt 223001 airspace.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On July 8, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice 
of

[[Page 56967]]

proposed rulemaking to amend controlled airspace at Grand Junction, CO 
(76 FR 40293). 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 D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 6002, 6004 and 6005, respectively, 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 D and Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in that Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace at Grand Junction Regional 
Airport, Grand Junction, CO. Additional controlled airspace extending 
upward from 1,200 feet above the surface is necessary to accommodate 
vectoring IFR aircraft departing Grand Junction Regional Airport to en 
route airspace. This action also amends Class D and Class E airspace to 
update the airport name from Grand Junction, Walker Field, to Grand 
Junction Regional Airport, Grand Junction, CO.
    The FAA has determined 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 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 discusses 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 creates 
additional controlled airspace at Grand Junction Regional Airport, 
Grand Junction, CO.
