See Price Index Adjustments for Contribution and Expenditure Limitations and Lobbyist Bundling Disclosure Threshold, 78 FR 8530, 8532 (Feb. 6, 2013). On April 2, 2014, the Supreme Court held that the aggregate contribution limits at 52 U.S.C. 30116(a)(3) (formerly 2 U.S.C. 441a(a)(3)) are unconstitutional. See McCutcheon, 134 S. Ct. at 1442, 1450–59. Accordingly, the Commission is removing the regulation at 11 CFR 110.5 that implements that statutory provision and is making technical and conforming amendments at 11 CFR 110.1(c)(3), 110.14(d)(1), 110.14(g)(2), 110.17(b), and 110.19, as explained further below. The Court’s decision did not affect the base limits. See McCutcheon, 134 S. Ct. at 1442. 11 CFR 110.1 Section 110.1(c) implements FECA’s base and aggregate limits on contributions to political party committees. Current 11 CFR 110.1(c)(3) states that each national political party committee may receive up to the base limit from an individual contributor, but ‘‘the limits of 11 CFR 110.5 shall . . . apply to contributions made by an individual’’ to such committees. The Commission is deleting this reference to the aggregate limits. 11 CFR 110.5 Section 110.5 directly implements FECA’s aggregate limits, 52 U.S.C. 30116(a)(3) (formerly 2 U.S.C. 441a(a)(3)). The Commission is deleting 11 CFR 110.5 in its entirety and reserving that section. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 11 CFR 110.14 Section 110.14(d)(1) provides, among other things, that ‘‘contributions made to a delegate for the purpose of furthering his or her selection . . . count against the limitation . . . under 11 CFR 110.5.’’ The Commission is deleting this reference to the aggregate limits. Similarly, section 110.14(g)(2) provides that an individual’s ‘‘[c]ontributions to a delegate committee count against the limitation . . . under 11 CFR 110.5.’’ The Commission is deleting paragraph (g)(2) and redesignating current paragraph (g)(3) as new paragraph (g)(2). VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:55 Oct 16, 2014 Jkt 235001 11 CFR 110.17 Section 110.17(b) implements FECA’s price index increases for certain contribution limits, including the aggregate limits. The Commission is deleting both the reference to the ‘‘biannual aggregate contribution limitation’’ in the title of section 110.17(b) and the citation in the text to section 110.5. Additionally, at 11 CFR 110.17(b)(1), the Commission is deleting the citation to section 110.5(b)(3). 11 CFR 110.19 Section 110.19 provides that, so long as certain conditions are satisfied, minors may make contributions ‘‘that in the aggregate do not exceed the limitations on contributions of 11 CFR 110.1 and 110.5.’’ The Commission is deleting the citation to 110.5.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On July 14, 2014, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Class E airspace for 
the Thomas, OK, area, creating controlled airspace at Thomas Muni 
Airport (79 FR 40690) Docket No. FAA-2014-0263. 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 6005 of FAA Order 
7400.9Y dated August 6, 2014, and effective September 15, 2014, 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 action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface within a 6.5-mile radius of Thomas Muni Airport, 
Thomas, OK, for new standard instrument approach procedures developed 
at the airport. Controlled airspace is needed for the safety and 
management of IFR operations at the airport.
    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. 
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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, 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 Thomas Muni Airport, Thomas, 
OK.

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.
