SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: History On July 10, 2013, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend controlled airspace at Wasatch, UT (78 FR 41336). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.

This action makes the correction. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6006, of FAA Order 7400.9X dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class E en route domestic airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface, at the Wasatch VORTAC navigation aid, Wasatch, UT, to accommodate IFR aircraft under control of Salt Lake City ARTCC by vectoring aircraft from en route airspace to terminal areas. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations. The geographic coordinates of the VORTAC are adjusted from (Lat. 40°51′10″ N., long. 111°58′55″ W.) to (Lat. 40°51′01″ N., long. 111°58′55″ W.) in accordance with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Except for administrative changes, and the changes listed above, this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM. The FAA has determined 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified 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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106 discusses 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:25 Sep 20, 2013 Jkt 229001 airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it establishes controlled airspace at the Wasatch VORTAC, Wasatch, UT. 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. 58159 113°30′00″ W.; to Lat. 38°23′43″ N., long. 113°12′48″ W.; to Lat. 38°19′56″ N., long. 114°09′07″ W.; to Lat. 38°28′04″ N., long. 114°21′28″ W.; to Lat. 39°38′25″ N., long. 114°42′19″ W.; to Lat. 40°06′57″ N., long. 114°37′44″ W.; to Lat. 40°40′40″ N., long. 114°28′45″ W.; to Lat. 41°08′22″ N., long. 114°57′44″ W.; to Lat. 42°00′00″ N., long. 114°42′42″ W., thence to the point of beginning.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On July 10, 2013, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend controlled airspace at 
Wasatch, UT (78 FR 41336). Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on 
the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to 
publication, the FAA's Aeronautical

Products office found the geographic coordinates of the Wasatch VORTAC 
needed to be corrected. This action makes the correction.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6006, of 
FAA Order 7400.9X dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 
2013, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in that Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by establishing Class E en route domestic airspace extending 
upward from 1,200 feet above the surface, at the Wasatch VORTAC 
navigation aid, Wasatch, UT, to accommodate IFR aircraft under control 
of Salt Lake City ARTCC by vectoring aircraft from en route airspace to 
terminal areas. This action is necessary for the safety and management 
of IFR operations. The geographic coordinates of the VORTAC are 
adjusted from (Lat. 40[deg]51'10'' N., long. 111[deg]58'55'' W.) to 
(Lat. 40[deg]51'01'' N., long. 111[deg]58'55'' W.) in accordance with 
the FAA's aeronautical database. Except for administrative changes, and 
the changes listed above, this rule is the same as that proposed in the 
NPRM.
    The FAA has determined 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 
only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified 
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 U.S. Code. 
Subtitle 1, Section 106 discusses 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 the Wasatch VORTAC, Wasatch, UT.

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.
