The Proposal This action proposes to amend 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 Clark County Airport, Clark, SD, to accommodate new standard instrument approach procedures. Controlled airspace is needed for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class E airspace areas 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.

AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its adjudication regulations to clarify that a veteran will not receive the dependent rate of disability compensation for a child who is adopted out of the veteran’s family. This action is necessary because applicable VA adjudication regulations are currently construed as permitting a veteran, whose former child was adopted out of the veteran’s family, to receive the dependent rate of disability compensation for the adopted-out child, which constitutes an unwarranted award of benefits not supported by the applicable statute and legislative history.

(This is not a toll-free telephone number.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to 38 U.S.C. 1115, a veteran entitled to compensation based on a serviceconnected disability rated not less than 30 percent is entitled to an additional rate of disability compensation for each of his or her children. Section 101(4)(A) of title 38, United States Code, defines ‘‘child’’ to include an unmarried person under the age of 18 years who is a legitimate child, a legally adopted child, a stepchild who is a member of the veteran’s household or was a member of the veteran’s household at the time of the veteran’s death, or an illegitimate child. See also 38 CFR 3.57. The statute also provides some exceptions for individuals who are permanently incapable of self-support and individuals who are pursuing an education. See 38 U.S.C. 101(4)(A); see also 38 CFR 3.57. Additionally, 38 CFR 3.58 provides that ‘‘[a] child of a veteran adopted out of the family of the veteran . . . is nevertheless a child within the meaning of that term as defined by § 3.57 and is eligible for benefits payable under all laws administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs.’’ See VA Op. Gen. Couns. Prec. 16–94 (1994) (‘‘pursuant to [§ 3.58] a child adopted out of a veteran’s family may remain a child of the veteran for VA purposes’’). Therefore, under current regulations, VA is required to pay a veteran additional disability compensation for a child who otherwise meets the requirements under § 3.57 but has been adopted out of the veteran’s family. However, VA believes its longstanding interpretation in § 3.58 as it applies to 38 U.S.C. 1115 is inconsistent with the statute’s clear purpose to provide for payments to a E:\FR\FM\02DEP1.SGM 02DEP1

The Proposal

    This action proposes to amend 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 Clark 
County Airport, Clark, SD, to accommodate new standard instrument 
approach procedures. Controlled airspace is needed for the safety and 
management of IFR operations at the airport.
    Class E airspace areas 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 
designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an

established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
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 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, will 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 would establish controlled airspace at Clark County Airport, 
Clark, SD.

Environmental Review

    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.
