The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by removing the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 and 1,200 feet above the surface at Kwigillingok Airport, Kwigillingok, AK. This action is necessary due to the cancellation of the Instrument Flight Rule approaches into the facility due to runway shortening. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005, 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 designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. The FAA has determined 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 E:\FR\FM\31JAP1.SGM 31JAP1 5330 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 21 / Friday, January 31, 2014 / Proposed Rules 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 remove controlled airspace at Kwigillingok Airport, Kwigillingok, AK.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Census Bureau is responsible for collecting, compiling, and publishing trade statistics for the United States under the provisions of Title 13, United States Code (U.S.C.), Chapter 9, Section 301. The Automated Export System (AES) is the primary instrument used for collecting export trade data. Through the AES, the Census Bureau collects Electronic Export Information (EEI), the electronic equivalent of the export data formerly collected on the Shipper’s Export Declaration (SED), reported pursuant to Title 15, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 30. The EEI consists of data elements as set forth in 15 CFR 30.6 for an export shipment, and includes information, such as the exporter’s identifying information, which includes name, address and identification number, and detailed information concerning the exported product. Other agencies use the EEI for the purpose of enforcing U.S. export laws and regulations. Currently there are two AES filing options: AES Predeparture Filing All commodity information is filed electronically prior to departure as outlined in 15 CFR 30.4(b). AES Postdeparture Filing Postdeparture filing is available for approved United States Principal Party in Interest (USPPI) and provides for the electronic filing of the data elements for eligible shipments required by 15 CFR 30.6 no later than five calendar days from the date of exportation. On August 15, 2003, the Census Bureau, in agreement with CBP, placed a moratorium on accepting new applications for Postdeparture filing due to an anticipated regulation change. The Census Bureau and CBP continued the moratorium on accepting new applications for the postdeparture program with the publication in the Federal Register of the revised regulations of March 14, 2013 (78 FR 16366). Though the moratorium continues, the Census Bureau and CBP have worked together to develop this pilot program to test the AEI approach, which is intended to replace the current postdeparture filing program. All exporters are eligible to apply for the AEI pilot program discussed in this notice. Advanced export data are required in order for CBP and other agencies to E:\FR\FM\31JAP1.SGM 31JAP1

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by removing the Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 and 1,200 feet above the surface at Kwigillingok 
Airport, Kwigillingok, AK. This action is necessary due to the 
cancellation of the Instrument Flight Rule approaches into the facility 
due to runway shortening.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005, 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 designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this Order.
    The FAA has determined 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 remove controlled airspace at Kwigillingok Airport, 
Kwigillingok, AK.
    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.
