Interested parties were invited to PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 26243 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 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 amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Easton, PA to accommodate the new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures developed for Braden Airpark. The Allentown VORTAC has been decommissioned, and the VOR/ DME approach cancelled. The controlled airspace area is increased to within an 8.2-mile radius of the airport due to terrain in the surrounding area. Also, the airport name is changed from Easton Airport to Braden Airpark, and the geographic coordinates of the airport are adjusted to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Also, the sentence in the regulatory text referencing the effectiveness of the airspace from sunrise to sunset, daily, is removed. Except for editorial changes and the changes noted above, this rule is the same as published 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.

The collection of information in the final regulations is in § 301.6109– 1(d)(2)(ii)(A). The collection of this information is necessary to allow the IRS to gather correct application information with respect to persons that have EINs. The respondents are persons that have EINs. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid control number assigned by the Office of Management and Budget.

Background This document contains final amendments to the Procedure and Administration Regulations (26 CFR part 301) under section 6109 of the Internal Revenue Code relating to identifying numbers. The Department of Treasury and the IRS published a notice of proposed rulemaking (REG–135491– 10) in the Federal Register, 77 FR 15004, on March 14, 2012, requiring persons issued EINs to provide updated application information to the IRS. The IRS did not receive any requests for a public hearing. Written comments responding to the proposed regulations were received and are available for public inspection at http:// www.regulations.gov or upon request. After consideration of all the comments, the proposed regulations are adopted without amendment by this Treasury decision. Summary of Comments The IRS received four written comments in response to the proposed regulations. One comment supported the rule in the proposed regulations requiring any person issued an EIN to provide updated information to the IRS in the manner and frequency required by forms, instructions, or other appropriate guidance (including updated application information regarding the name and taxpayer identifying number of the responsible party). This commentator also recommended changes to either the Form SS–4, Application for Employer Identification Number, or the Form 5500, Annual Returns/Reports of Employee Benefit Plan, to require additional information confirming the active status of a trust’s EIN. Alternatively, the commentator suggested that the IRS could use a postcard to confirm the active status of trusts for EIN purposes. Although these suggestions are outside the scope of the regulations, the IRS will take them into consideration during future updates of those items. Three of the comments did not support the rule in the proposed regulations. Two commentators objected to the increased burden on entities resulting from the updating requirement and questioned the necessity of this requirement. Additionally, two E:\FR\FM\06MYR1.SGM 06MYR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On January 24, 2013, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class E airspace at 
Easton, PA (78 FR 5152) Docket No. FAA-2012-0394. 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 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 amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Easton, PA to accommodate the new Standard 
Instrument Approach Procedures developed for Braden Airpark. The 
Allentown VORTAC has been decommissioned, and the VOR/DME approach 
cancelled. The controlled airspace area is increased to within an 8.2-
mile radius of the airport due to terrain in the surrounding area. 
Also, the airport name is changed from Easton Airport to Braden 
Airpark, and the geographic coordinates of the airport are adjusted to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database. Also, the sentence in 
the regulatory text referencing the effectiveness of the airspace from 
sunrise to sunset, daily, is removed. Except for editorial changes and 
the changes noted above, this rule is the same as published 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

[[Page 26244]]

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 Braden Airpark, Easton, PA.

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.
