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. DATES: Effective date: 0901 UTC July 23, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Fornito, Operations Support Group, Eastern Service Center, Federal Aviation Administration, P.O. Box 20636, Atlanta, Georgia 30320; telephone (404) 305–6364. 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. E:\FR\FM\23JYR1.SGM 23JYR1
