SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES History On December 20, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend controlled airspace at Lamar, CO (76 FR 78864). 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 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 part 71.1. The 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 amending Class E airspace, extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Lamar Municipal Airport. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Lamar TACAN. Also, the geographic coordinates of the airport are updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:53 Mar 26, 2012 Jkt 226001 18103 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 amends controlled airspace at Lamar Municipal Airport, Lamar, CO. Issued in Seattle, Washington, on March 19, 2012.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment. AGENCY: This action makes a minor editorial change to the time of designation for restricted areas R–5801 and R–5803, Chambersburg, PA, to remove the abbreviation ‘‘EST.’’ This amendment does not change the dimensions of, or activities conducted within, the restricted areas.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background The time of designation for R–5801 and R–5803 currently reads ‘‘0800 to 1600 EST, Monday–Friday.’’ Since these restricted areas lie completely within the Eastern Time zone, it is unnecessary to specify ‘‘EST’’ in the descriptions. The hours 0800 to 1600 are in effect year round regardless of time of year. The use of ‘‘EST’’ in the current description leads to confusion about the time of designation during that part of the year when daylight saving time is in effect. The intended time of designation for the restricted areas is 0800–1600 local time during both standard time and daylight time periods. The Rule This action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 to remove ‘‘EST’’ from the time of designation in the descriptions of restricted areas R–5801 and R–5803, Chambersburg, PA. The time of designation is amended to read ‘‘0800 to 1600 local time, Monday–Friday.’’ This change does not alter the current usage of the restricted areas. Accordingly, since this action is an administrative change, and does not alter the dimensions or utilization of the restricted areas, I find that notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. Section 73.58 of Title 14 CFR part 73 was republished in FAA Order 7400.8U, effective February 16, 2012. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On December 13, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Class E airspace 700 
feet above the surface, at Piseco, NY (76 FR 77451). Interested parties 
were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting 
written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. 
Subsequent to publication, the FAA found that the geographic 
coordinates needed to be adjusted; this rule makes that adjustment. 
Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph

[[Page 18104]]

6005 of FAA Order 7400.9V dated August 9, 2011, and effective September 
15, 2011, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1. The 
Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to support new standard instrument approach procedures 
developed at Piseco Airport, Piseco, NY. This action also adjusts the 
geographic coordinates of the airport to be in concert with the FAAs 
aeronautical database. This enhances the safety and management of IFR 
operations at the airport. Except for the changes noted above, this 
action is the same as that proposed in the NPRM.
    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, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. 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 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 
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 establishes Class E airspace at Piseco Airport, Piseco, NY.
