SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: History On June 4, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend controlled airspace at Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport, Lewiston, ID (77 FR 32921). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. The FAA received one comment from the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA). The NBAA recommended making the Class E airspace area extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface larger by lowering some of the adjacent Class E airspace, which begins from between E:\FR\FM\15NOR1.SGM 15NOR1 68066 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 221 / Thursday, November 15, 2012 / Rules and Regulations wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with 10,000 Mean Sea Level (MSL) and 14,500 MSL, for aircraft safety. The FAA found merit in this comment and further amended the NPRM with a supplemental NPRM (SNPRM) published in the Federal Register of August 21, 2012 (77 FR 50417). 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 paragraphs, 5000, 6002, 6004 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9W dated August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1. The Class D airspace 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 the Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 and 1,200 feet above the surface at Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport, Lewiston, ID, to accommodate aircraft using RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at the airport. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of the airport, the Nez Perce VHF OmniDirectional Radio Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME), and the Lewiston-Nez Perce Instrument Landing System (ILS) Localizer navigation aids to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:24 Nov 14, 2012 Jkt 229001 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 modifies controlled airspace at Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport, Lewiston, 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.

Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. The FAA received one comment from the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA). The NBAA felt the reasons put forth in the NPRM for lowering the Class E airspace down to 1,200 feet above the surface was vague and did not name the terminal areas specifically that would benefit from lowering the Class E airspace. The commenter also VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:24 Nov 14, 2012 Jkt 229001 68067 recommended that the FAA lower the Class E airspace in a much larger area pushing the airspace north to the boundaries of Oakland ARTCC and Seattle ARTCC airspace, and east to the boundaries of Oakland ARTCC and Salt Lake City ARTCC airspace. The FAA is creating this airspace at the request of the Oakland ARTCC to aid with the navigation of aircraft within the ARTCC’s airspace area by assisting aircraft arriving and departing numerous terminal areas. The FAA feels that making the area larger is not needed at this time and is outside the scope of this rulemaking. Further widening of the airspace would not serve the immediate purpose of establishing the Class E–6 en route airspace area to assist Oakland ARTCC. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6006, of FAA Order 7400.9W dated August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On June 4, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice 
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend controlled airspace at Lewiston-
Nez Perce County Airport, Lewiston, ID (77 FR 32921). Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. The FAA 
received one comment from the National Business Aviation Association 
(NBAA).
    The NBAA recommended making the Class E airspace area extending 
upward from 1,200 feet above the surface larger by lowering some of the 
adjacent Class E airspace, which begins from between

[[Page 68066]]

10,000 Mean Sea Level (MSL) and 14,500 MSL, for aircraft safety. The 
FAA found merit in this comment and further amended the NPRM with a 
supplemental NPRM (SNPRM) published in the Federal Register of August 
21, 2012 (77 FR 50417). 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 
paragraphs, 5000, 6002, 6004 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 
7400.9W dated August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 2012, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1. The Class D airspace 
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 the Class E airspace area extending upward from 
700 and 1,200 feet above the surface at Lewiston-Nez Perce County 
Airport, Lewiston, ID, to accommodate aircraft using RNAV (GPS) 
standard instrument approach procedures at the airport. This action 
also updates the geographic coordinates of the airport, the Nez Perce 
VHF Omni-Directional Radio Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/
DME), and the Lewiston-Nez Perce Instrument Landing System (ILS) 
Localizer navigation aids to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR 
operations.
    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 modifies 
controlled airspace at Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport, Lewiston, 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.
