Download as PDF 61258 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 192 / Tuesday, October 4, 2011 / Rules and Regulations this document will be subsequently published in the Order. 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 Department of Transportation (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 United States Code. Subtitle I, 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 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 amends an airway description in California to keep it current to ensure the safety of aircraft operations within the National Airspace System. The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Polices and Procedures, paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with RULES List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in the specified navigable waters near Seacliff State Beach Pier in Aptos, California in support of the Monte Foundation Fireworks Extravaganza. This safety zone is established to ensure the safety of participants and spectators from the dangers associated with the pyrotechnics. Unauthorized persons or vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or remaining in the safety zone without permission of the Captain of the Port or their designated representative.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Regulatory Information The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because the event would occur before the rulemaking process would be completed. Because of the dangers posed by the pyrotechnics used in this fireworks display, the safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of event participants, spectators, spectator craft, and other vessels transiting the event area. For the safety concerns noted, it is impracticable to publish an NPRM prior to the event. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Due to the need for immediate action, the safety zone is necessary to protect life, property and the environment; therefore, a 30-day notice is impracticable. Delaying the effective date would be contrary to the safety zone’s intended objectives of protecting persons and vessels involved in the event, and enhancing public and maritime safety. Basis and Purpose Rudolph F. Monte Foundation will sponsor the Monte Foundation Fireworks Extravaganza on October 7, 2011, in the navigable waters around Seacliff State Beach Pier near Aptos, CA. During the fireworks display the safety zone will extend to 1,000 feet around the pier located at position 36°58′11.2″ N, 121°54′36.79″ W (NAD 83). The fireworks display is meant for entertainment purposes. This safety zone is issued to establish a temporary E:\FR\FM\04OCR1.SGM 04OCR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Friday, July 29, 2011, the FAA published a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register to revise Class E airspace at 
Allakaket, AK (76 FR 45477).
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. A 
comment was received that reference to Class E2 airspace should be 
removed as it is not applicable to Allakaket. The FAA agrees and has 
removed those references.
    Class E airspace areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 
7400.9V, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed September 
9, 2011, and effective September 15, 2011, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in 
this document will be published subsequently in the Order. With the 
exception of editorial changes, and the changes described above, this 
rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by revising Class E airspace at the Allakaket Airport, 
Allakaket, AK, to accommodate the amendment of a standard instrument 
approach procedure. The additional Class E airspace provides adequate 
controlled airspace extending upward from 700 and 1,200 feet above the 
surface is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at 
the airport.
    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. 
It, therefore--(1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under 
Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under DOT

[[Page 61259]]

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 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 creates Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft 
executing instrument procedures for the Allakaket Airport, AK and 
represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use 
the navigable airspace.
