SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background As a result of the realignment of organizational responsibilities between federal agencies, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been assigned the function of using agency for restricted areas R–5115 in New Mexico; and R– 6316, R–6317, and R–6318 in Texas. The transfer of using agency operational control occurs October 1, 2013. This action is an administrative name change only and does not affect the current dimensions or use of the restricted areas. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 by amending the using agency name for Restricted Areas R–5115 Deming, NM; R–6316 Eagle Pass, TX; R–6317 El Sauz, TX; and R–6318 Marfa, TX. The using agency for R–5115, R–6316, R–6317, and R–6318 is changed from ‘‘Western Air Defense Sector’’ to ‘‘U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Air and Marine Operations Center (AMOC), Riverside, CA.’’ This is an administrative change to update the title of the using agencies. It does not affect the boundaries, designated altitudes, or activities conducted within the restricted areas; therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. The FAA has determined that this action 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 63867 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 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 amends the descriptions of restricted areas R–5115, R–6316, R–6317, and R– 6318 to reflect current organizational responsibilities. 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 311d. This airspace action is an administrative change to the descriptions of the affected restricted areas to update the using agency name. It does not alter the dimensions, altitudes, or times of designation of the airspace; therefore, it is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exists that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    As a result of the realignment of organizational responsibilities 
between federal agencies, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been 
assigned the function of using agency for restricted areas R-5115 in 
New Mexico; and R-6316, R-6317, and R-6318 in Texas. The transfer of 
using agency operational control occurs October 1, 2013. This action is 
an administrative name change only and does not affect the current 
dimensions or use of the restricted areas.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 73 by amending the using agency name for Restricted Areas R-5115 
Deming, NM; R-6316 Eagle Pass, TX; R-6317 El Sauz, TX; and R-6318 
Marfa, TX. The using agency for R-5115, R-6316, R-6317, and R-6318 is 
changed from ``Western Air Defense Sector'' to ``U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection, Air and Marine Operations Center (AMOC), Riverside, 
CA.''
    This is an administrative change to update the title of the using 
agencies. It does not affect the boundaries, designated altitudes, or 
activities conducted within the restricted areas; therefore, notice and 
public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
    The FAA has determined that this action 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 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. 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 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 amends the descriptions of restricted areas R-5115, R-6316, R-
6317, and R-6318 to reflect current organizational responsibilities.

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 311d. This airspace action is an administrative change to the 
descriptions of the affected restricted areas to update the using 
agency name. It does not alter the dimensions, altitudes, or times of 
designation of the airspace; therefore, it is not expected to cause any 
potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary 
circumstances exists that warrant preparation of an environmental 
assessment.
