SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by clarifying in the airspace description the ceiling of the Class D airspace area at MacDill AFB, FL, adding the words ‘‘to but not including 1,200 feet MSL’’. This avoids any confusion with the floor of the overlying Tampa International Airport Class B airspace area, which is 1,200 feet MSL. This is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. 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 E:\FR\FM\02DER1.SGM 02DER1 71310 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 231 / Tuesday, December 2, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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 further clarifies the description of controlled airspace at MacDill AFB, MacDill, AFB, FL.

The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class D airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 2,500 feet MSL within a 4.1mile radius of Hammond Northshore Regional Airport, Hammond, LA, to accommodate the establishment of an air traffic control tower. Class E airspace designated as an extension is established within a 4.2-mile radius of the airport, with segments extending from the 4.1-mile radius of the airport to 7 miles north and 7 miles southeast of the Hammond VORTAC. Controlled airspace is needed for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by clarifying in the airspace description the ceiling of the 
Class D airspace area at MacDill AFB, FL, adding the words ``to but not 
including 1,200 feet MSL''. This avoids any confusion with the floor of 
the overlying Tampa International Airport Class B airspace area, which 
is 1,200 feet MSL. This is an administrative change and does not affect 
the boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, 
notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
    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

[[Page 71310]]

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.
