The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Lakeview PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 5155 County Airport, Lakeview, OR. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at Lakeview County Airport. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface would be established to the north and to the south of the airport to contain the holding patterns. This action would enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at the airport. Also, the airport formerly called Lakeview Airport is changed to Lakeview County Airport. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005, of FAA Order 7400.9W, dated August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. The FAA has determined this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed 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 proposed rule, when promulgated, would 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, describes the authority for 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 would modify controlled airspace at Lakeview County Airport, Lakeview, OR. This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and E:\FR\FM\24JAP1.SGM 24JAP1 5156 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 16 / Thursday, January 24, 2013 / Proposed Rules Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard proposes to modify the operating schedule that governs the Third Street Bridge at mile 2.3, the Walnut Street Bridge at mile 2.8, and the Market Street Bridge at mile 3.0, all located on the Christina River in Wilmington, DE. Since the three drawbridges are located near one another and the few vessels that do transit this waterway usually go through all three bridges, it is proposed that all the bridges open on the same eight hour advance notice. This proposal would change the current regulations by allowing the Third Street and Walnut Street drawbridges to be opened in sequence with the same eight hour advance notice currently given to the Market Street drawbridge. This proposed schedule clarifies the sequencing of the three drawbridge openings, and provides for the reasonable needs of navigation.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Lakeview County Airport, 
Lakeview, OR. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft 
using RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at Lakeview 
County Airport. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 
1,200 feet above the surface would be established to the north and to 
the south of the airport to contain the holding patterns. This action 
would enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at the 
airport. Also, the airport formerly called Lakeview Airport is changed 
to Lakeview County Airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005, of 
FAA Order 7400.9W, dated August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 
2012, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this Order.
    The FAA has determined this proposed regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed 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 proposed rule, when 
promulgated, would 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, describes 
the authority for 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 would modify controlled airspace at Lakeview County Airport, 
Lakeview, OR.
    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies
