SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: History On February 7, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend controlled airspace at Boise Air Terminal (Gowan Field), Boise, ID (77 FR 6026). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments E:\FR\FM\11SER1.SGM 11SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 176 / Tuesday, September 11, 2012 / Rules and Regulations sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with RULES on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to publication, the FAA found the Boise navigation aid is no longer needed and should be removed from the Class E airspace area designated as an extension. On June 28, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) to remove reference to the navigation aid listed under Class E airspace designated as an extension at Boise Air Terminal, Boise, ID (77 FR 38552). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. The FAA’s Aeronautical Products Office requested the legal description for the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface be rewritten for clarity. With the exception of editorial changes and the changes described above, this rule is the same as that proposed in the SNPRM. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6003 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 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 designated as an extension, at Boise Air Terminal (Gowan Field), Boise, ID. The legal description is rewritten to better describe the airspace area by removing reference to the Boise VORTAC. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface has been reconfigured due to the decommissioning of the Donnelly TACAN, and is rewritten for clarity. The geographic coordinates of the airport are adjusted in accordance with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This ensures the safety and management of IFR operations within the National Airspace System. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:47 Sep 10, 2012 Jkt 226001 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 amends controlled airspace at Boise Air Terminal (Gowen Field), Boise, ID. Environmental Review 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: Policies 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.

been decommissioned and controlled airspace reconfigured. This action 
also makes a minor change to the legal description in reference to 
Class E airspace 9,000 feet Mean Sea Level (MSL). This improves the 
safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at 
the airport.

DATES: Effective date, 0901 UTC, November 15, 2012. The Director of the 
Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 
1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and 
publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On February 7, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend controlled airspace at 
Boise Air Terminal (Gowan Field), Boise, ID (77 FR 6026). Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments

[[Page 55689]]

on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to 
publication, the FAA found the Boise navigation aid is no longer needed 
and should be removed from the Class E airspace area designated as an 
extension.
    On June 28, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) to remove reference 
to the navigation aid listed under Class E airspace designated as an 
extension at Boise Air Terminal, Boise, ID (77 FR 38552). Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments 
were received.
    The FAA's Aeronautical Products Office requested the legal 
description for the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface be rewritten for clarity. With the exception of 
editorial changes and the changes described above, this rule is the 
same as that proposed in the SNPRM.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6003 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 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 designated as an extension, at 
Boise Air Terminal (Gowan Field), Boise, ID. The legal description is 
rewritten to better describe the airspace area by removing reference to 
the Boise VORTAC. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface has been reconfigured due to the decommissioning of the 
Donnelly TACAN, and is rewritten for clarity. The geographic 
coordinates of the airport are adjusted in accordance with the FAA's 
aeronautical database. This ensures the safety and management of IFR 
operations within the National Airspace System.
    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 amends 
controlled airspace at Boise Air Terminal (Gowen Field), Boise, ID.

Environmental Review

    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: Policies 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.
