Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 187 / Friday, September 26, 2014 / Rules and Regulations and practice. For the same reasons, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), a delayed effective date is not required. II. Statutory and Regulatory Requirements asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES to provide the customs services. To implement this provision, generally, the airport seeking the designation as a user fee airport or that airport’s authority agrees to pay a flat fee for which the users of the airport are to reimburse the airport/airport authority. The airport/ airport authority agrees to set and periodically review the charges to ensure that they are in accord with the airport’s expenses. The regulation pertaining to user fee airports is 19 CFR 122.15. It addresses the procedures for obtaining permission to land at a user fee airport, the grounds for withdrawal of a user fee designation and includes the list of user fee airports designated by the Commissioner of CBP in accordance with 19 U.S.C. 58b. Periodically, CBP updates the list of user fee airports at 19 CFR 122.15(b) to reflect those that have been recently designated by the Commissioner and other changes, such as a name change for a listed user fee airport. On April 15, 2012, the Commissioner of CBP signed a MOA approving the designation of user fee status for the John Wayne Airport. This document updates the list of user fee airports by adding John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California to the list. On September 17, 2007, the Williams Gateway Airport Authority approved the renaming of the Williams Gateway Airport in Mesa, Arizona to the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. This name change went into effect on October 15, 2007. This document updates the list of user fee airports to reflect the renaming of the Williams Gateway Airport to the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. E. Signing Authority A. Inapplicability of Public Notice and Delayed Effective Date Requirements Under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b)), an agency may waive the normal notice and comment requirements if it finds, for good cause, that they are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. This final rule updates the list of user fee airports to add an airport that has already been designated by the Commissioner of CBP in accordance with 19 U.S.C. 58b as a user fee airport and to reflect a name change for one of the listed airports. These amendments are conforming changes to update the list of user fee airports. Therefore, notice and comment for this rule is unnecessary because the rule has no substantive impact, is technical in nature, and it relates only to management, organization, procedure, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:52 Sep 25, 2014 Jkt 232001 B. The Regulatory Flexibility Act and Executive Order 12866 Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do not apply. This amendment does not meet the criteria for a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ as specified in Executive Order 12866, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563. C. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 This rule will not result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year, and it will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions are necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. § 122.15 57783 [Amended] 2. The listing of user fee airports in § 122.15(b) is amended as follows: ■ a. Add, in alphabetical order, in the ‘‘Location’’ column ‘‘Santa Ana, California’’ and add on the same line, in the ‘‘Name’’ column ‘‘John Wayne Airport.’’; and ■ b. In the ‘‘Name’’ column adjacent to the listing in the ‘‘Location’’ column of ‘‘Mesa, Arizona’’, remove ‘‘Williams Gateway Airport.’’ and add in its place ‘‘Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.’’ ■ Dated: September 22, 2014.

[FR Doc. 2014–22939 Filed 9–25–14; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 9111–14–P DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY Internal Revenue Service 26 CFR Part 51 D. Executive Order 13132 [TD 9684] The rule will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the National Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with section 6 of Executive Order 13132, this rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement.
