VerDate Mar<15>2010 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. History On November 30, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Class E airspace for the West Ranch Airport, Round Mountain, TX (77 FR 71367) Docket No. FAA–2012–0771. 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 7400.9W dated August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 19097 document will be published subsequently in the Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to ensure that required controlled airspace exists for departing aircraft under instrument flight rules, and arriving aircraft utilizing new standard instrument approach procedures at West Ranch Airport, Round Mountain, TX. This action enhances 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. 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 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 U.S. 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 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 controlled airspace at West Ranch Airport, Round Mountain, TX.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Labor (the Department) published the Wage Methodology for the Temporary Non-agricultural Employment H–2B Program final rule (the Wage Rule) on January 19, 2011, 76 PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 FR 3452. The Wage Rule revised the methodology by which the Department calculates the prevailing wages to be paid to H–2B workers and United States (U.S.) workers recruited in connection with a temporary labor certification for use in petitioning the Department of Homeland Security to employ a nonimmigrant worker in H–2B status. The Department originally set the effective date of the Wage Rule for January 1, 2012. However, as a result of litigation and following notice-andcomment rulemaking, we issued a final rule, 76 FR 45667 (Aug. 1, 2011), revising the effective date of the Wage Rule to September 30, 2011, and a second final rule, 76 FR 59896 (Sept. 28, 2011), further revising the effective date of the Wage Rule to November 30, 2011. Thereafter, the Department extended the effective date of the Wage Rule until January 1, 2012, in light of the enactment on November 18, 2011 of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2012, which provided that ‘‘[n]one of the funds made available by this or any other Act for fiscal year 2012 may be used to implement, administer, or enforce, prior to January 1, 2012 the [Wage Rule].’’ Public Law 112–55, 125 Stat. 552, Div. B, Title V, § 546 (Nov. 18, 2011) (the November 2011 Appropriations Act). In delaying the Wage Rule’s effective date, the Department stated that although the November 2011 Appropriations Act ‘‘prevent[ed] the expenditure of funds to implement, administer, or enforce the Wage Rule before January 1, 2012, it [did] not prohibit the Wage Rule from going into effect, which [was] scheduled to occur on November 30, 2011. When the Wage Rule goes into effect, it will supersede and make null the prevailing wage provisions at 20 CFR 655.10(b) of the Department’s existing H–2B regulations, which were promulgated under Labor Certification Process and Enforcement for Temporary Employment in Occupations Other Than Agriculture or Registered Nursing in the United States (H–2B Workers), and Other Technical Changes; Final Rule, 73 FR 78020, Dec. 19, 2008 (the H–2B 2008 Rule).’’ 76 FR 73508, 73509 (Nov. 29, 2011). Accordingly, the Department determined that it was necessary in light of the November 2011 Appropriations Act to delay the effective date of the Wage Rule in order to avoid the replacement of the H–2B 2008 Rule with a new rule that the Department lacked appropriated funds to implement. As a result, the Department issued a final rule, 76 FR 73508, that delayed the effective date of the Wage Rule until January 1, 2012. Subsequent E:\FR\FM\29MRR1.SGM 29MRR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On November 30, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Class E airspace for 
the West Ranch Airport, Round Mountain, TX (77 FR 71367) Docket No. 
FAA-2012-0771. 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 7400.9W dated August 8, 2012, 
and effective September 15, 2012, 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.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface to ensure that required controlled airspace exists 
for departing aircraft under instrument flight rules, and arriving 
aircraft utilizing new standard instrument approach procedures at West 
Ranch Airport, Round Mountain, TX. This action enhances 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. 
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 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 U.S. 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 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 controlled airspace at West Ranch Airport, Round 
Mountain, TX.

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
