SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On February 12, 2014, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to establish Class E airspace at Nashville, TN (79 FR 8367) Docket No. FAA–2013– 0932. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6003 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 the Order. The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 establishes the Class E airspace as an extension to a Class C surface area at Nashville, TN, providing the controlled airspace required to support the new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures for Nashville International Airport. Accordingly, a segment of controlled airspace would extend from the 5-mile radius of the airport to 11.7-miles south of the airport, and a segment would extend from the 5-mile radius of the airport to 8.9 miles southwest of the airport. This action provides for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Also, an editorial change is made to the Class E airspace designation 6003 title to include wording omitted in the NPRM. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 22771 frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. 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. 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 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 Nashville International Airport, Nashville, TN. Except for the editorial change stated above, this rule is the same as published in the NPRM. 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.

The SIP revisions establish emission thresholds for determining which new stationary sources and modifications to existing stationary sources become subject to Colorado’s PSD permitting requirements for their GHG emissions. EPA is approving the May 25, 2011 SIP revision to the Colorado PSD permitting program as being consistent with federal requirements for PSD permitting. EPA is also approving several grammar and punctuation changes to Regulation Number 3 made by the State and included in the May 25, 2011 submittal.

Background for Our Final Action The May 25, 2011 SIP submittal includes PSD permitting provisions that establish (1) GHG as a regulated pollutant under the PSD program, and (2) emission thresholds for determining which new stationary sources and modification projects become subject to Colorado’s PSD permitting requirements for their GHG emissions consistent with EPA’s GHG Tailoring Rule. The background for today’s final rule and EPA’s national actions pertaining to GHGs is discussed in detail in our proposal (see 79 FR 2144, January 13, 2014). The comment period was open for 30 days and we received no written comments. II. What final action is EPA taking? Colorado has adopted and submitted regulations that are substantively similar to the federal requirements for the permitting of GHG-emitting sources subject to PSD. EPA is approving the May 25, 2011 submittal for incorporation into the SIP. The submitted revisions establish thresholds for determining which stationary sources and modification projects become subject to permitting requirements for GHG emissions under Colorado’s New Source Review (NSR) PSD program. Specifically, EPA is approving revisions to Regulation Number 3 Parts A, B and D and the Common Provisions Regulation. EPA has determined that these May 25, 2011 revisions are approvable into Colorado’s SIP because they are consistent with the requirements of 40 CFR 51.166, in particular requirements set out in EPA’s final GHG Tailoring Rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On February 12, 2014, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to establish Class E airspace at 
Nashville, TN (79 FR 8367) Docket No. FAA-2013-0932. Interested parties 
were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting 
written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. 
Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6003 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 
the Order.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishes the Class E airspace as an extension to a Class C 
surface area at Nashville, TN, providing the controlled airspace 
required to support the new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach 
procedures for Nashville International Airport. Accordingly, a segment 
of controlled airspace would extend from the 5-mile radius of the 
airport to 11.7-miles south of the airport, and a segment would extend 
from the 5-mile radius of the airport to 8.9 miles southwest of the 
airport. This action provides for the safety and management of IFR 
operations at the airport. Also, an editorial change is made to the 
Class E airspace designation 6003 title to include wording omitted in 
the NPRM.
    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, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. 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. 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 
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 Nashville International 
Airport, Nashville, TN. Except for the editorial change stated above, 
this rule is the same as published in the NPRM.

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.
