Proposed Amendment of Class D Airspace; Santa Monica, CA, 37997-37998 [2013-15133]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 122 / Tuesday, June 25, 2013 / Proposed Rules availability of this financing, the extent to which manufactured housing currently is incentivized, and the availability of energy efficiency incentive programs available to manufactured home purchasers. DOE also is interested in information on the existence of financing structures offered by utilities, manufacturers, lenders, and federal, state, and local governments, and the estimated payback associated with each method of financing. (3) Model systems of enforcement. DOE received comments in response to the ANOPR that included urging DOE to rely on HUD’s existing enforcement system rather than develop a separate DOE system of enforcement, encouraging DOE develop a separate compliance certification system that would be independent of the existing HUD certification system, and recommending that DOE rely on the EPA ENERGY STAR verification and labeling program to ensure compliance with the DOE energy efficiency standards. DOE is interested in receiving additional information that commenters believe would be useful to DOE regarding suggested characteristics in developing a model system of enforcement for DOE’s energy efficiency standards. (4) Suggested sources, studies, and research results of other information considered relevant to DOE’s effort to establish energy standards for manufactured housing. Issued in Washington, DC, on June 18, 2013. Kathleen B. Hogan, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

The airspace would be increased from a 2.7-mile radius to a 4mile radius of the airport, leaving the extension to the northeast the same as the NPRM. The geographic coordinates of the airport would also be updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Expanding the current Santa Monica Municipal Airport Class D airspace would reduce those areas that pose a high collision risk to low level commercial, general aviation, military and helicopter operations. Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 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 D airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. The FAA has determined that 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 that 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:33 Jun 24, 2013 Jkt 229001 scope of that authority as it would modify controlled airspace at Santa Monica Municipal Airport, Santa Monica, CA. This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

The Supplemental Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by further modifying the size of the Class 
D airspace area at Santa Monica Municipal Airport, Santa Monica, CA, to 
accommodate IFR aircraft departing and arriving at the airport. The 
airspace would be increased from a 2.7-mile radius to a 4-mile radius 
of the airport, leaving the extension to the northeast the same as the 
NPRM. The geographic coordinates of the airport would also be updated 
to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database. Expanding the current 
Santa Monica Municipal Airport Class D airspace would reduce those 
areas that pose a high collision risk to low level commercial, general 
aviation, military and helicopter operations.
    Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 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 D 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this Order.
    The FAA has determined that 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 that 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 Santa Monica Municipal 
Airport, Santa Monica, CA.
    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
