AGENCY: This action amends Class E airspace for the Tri-Cities, TN area, by correcting the regulatory text of the Class E surface airspace at Tri-Cities Regional Airport, Tri-Cities, TN. Exclusionary language was omitted in the final rule published in the Federal Register of February 5, 2013, This action is necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations in the Tri-Cities area.

SUMMARY: History On February 5, 2013, the FAA published in the Federal Register a final rule amending Class D and E airspace in the Tri-Cities, TN, area (78 FR 7993). The line defining the exclusion of controlled airspace surrounding the Edwards Heliport in the Class E surface area airspace description for Tri-Cities Regional Airport, Tri-Cities, TN, was erroneously omitted. Since any delay in correcting the controlled airspace in order to seek public comment would be inconsistent with the agency’s safety mandate, action is taken herein to PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 include the corrective language. Since the regulatory text, as currently described, penetrates the controlled airspace of Edwards Heliport, immediate corrective action is required in the interest of flight safety. Therefore, I find that notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. Also, in consideration of the need to include this exclusion of controlled airspace for Tri-cities Regional Airport and to avoid confusion on the part of pilots flying in the vicinity of Tri-Cities, TN, the FAA finds good cause, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d), for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days in order to promote the safe and efficient handling of air traffic in the area. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E surface airspace at TriCities Regional Airport, Tri-Cities, TN, by inserting in the regulatory text the exclusion of the 2.5-mile radius surrounding Edwards Heliport. The Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6002 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 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. 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement a limited waiver, published by the Secretary of State on June 12, 2013, of the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003 (the SAA). The waiver authorizes BIS to issue licenses on a case-by-case basis for the export or reexport of certain commodities, software, and technology necessary for the support of the Syrian people. Specifically, consistent with Section 5(b) of the SAA, Executive Order 13338 of May 11, 2004 and the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), BIS implements the waiver by amending its Syria licensing policy under the EAR. BIS will review licenses on a case-bycase basis for the export or reexport of certain commodities, software, and technology, including, but not limited to, those related to water supply and sanitation, agricultural production and food processing, power generation, oil and gas production, construction and engineering, transportation, and educational infrastructure, as a means of helping to address the critical needs of the Syrian people and facilitating reconstruction.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108–175, codified as a note to 22 U.S.C. 2151) (the SAA), the United States addressed the Syrian government’s support for terrorist groups, its military presence in Lebanon, its pursuit of weapons of mass destruction, and its actions to undermine U.S. and international efforts with respect to the stabilization and reconstruction of Iraq (Section 5(a) and (d)). Section 5(a)(1) of the SAA requires the President to prohibit the export to Syria of all items on the Commerce Control List (15 CFR Part 774). The SAA also requires the President to impose two or more of the six additional sanctions set forth in Section 5(a)(2)(A)– (F). The President implemented those sanctions through Executive Order (EO) 13338 of May 11, 2004, which includes an additional sanction prohibiting the export to Syria of products of the United States other than food and medicine. However, the President exercised national security waiver authority pursuant to Section 5(b) of the SAA, which authorized certain transactions under BIS license and delegated his authority to issue additional waivers to the Secretary of State. In accordance with this EO, BIS implemented sanctions on Syria by issuing General Order No. 2 to Supplement No. 1 to Part 736 of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). See 69 FR 26766 (May 14, 2004). In addition, BIS later made administrative changes to General Order No. 2 and § 746.9 of the EAR to facilitate compliance with the comprehensive U.S. sanctions on Syria. See 74 FR 77115 (Dec. 12, 2011). On June 12, 2013, the Secretary of State exercised authority delegated to him by the President in Section 9 of EO 13338 to waive the application of specific sanctions imposed on Syria pursuant to the SAA.

Amendment of Class E Airspace; Tri-Cities, TN

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action amends Class E airspace for the Tri-Cities, TN 
area, by correcting the regulatory text of the Class E surface airspace 
at Tri-Cities Regional Airport, Tri-Cities, TN. Exclusionary language 
was omitted in the final rule published in the Federal Register of 
February 5, 2013, This action is necessary for the safety and 
management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations in the Tri-
Cities area.

DATES: Effective date: 0901 UTC July 23, 2013.

History

    On February 5, 2013, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
final rule amending Class D and E airspace in the Tri-Cities, TN, area 
(78 FR 7993). The line defining the exclusion of controlled airspace 
surrounding the Edwards Heliport in the Class E surface area airspace 
description for Tri-Cities Regional Airport, Tri-Cities, TN, was 
erroneously omitted. Since any delay in correcting the controlled 
airspace in order to seek public comment would be inconsistent with the 
agency's safety mandate, action is taken herein to include the 
corrective language. Since the regulatory text, as currently described, 
penetrates the controlled airspace of Edwards Heliport, immediate 
corrective action is required in the interest of flight safety. 
Therefore, I find that notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b) is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. Also, in 
consideration of the need to include this exclusion of controlled 
airspace for Tri-cities Regional Airport and to avoid confusion on the 
part of pilots flying in the vicinity of Tri-Cities, TN, the FAA finds 
good cause, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d), for making this amendment 
effective in less than 30 days in order to promote the safe and 
efficient handling of air traffic in the area.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends Class E surface airspace at Tri-Cities Regional Airport, 
Tri-Cities, TN, by inserting in the regulatory text the exclusion of 
the 2.5-mile radius surrounding Edwards Heliport.
    The Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6002 
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 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. 
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 
only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified 
that this rule, when promulgated, does 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.

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
