SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:17 Feb 27, 2015 Jkt 235001 Background Restricted area R–2936, West Palm Beach, FL, was established to contain test firings of components for the main engines of the Space Shuttle (55 FR 5981) May 3, 1990. During test firings, hydrogen gas was released through an exhaust stack generating significant turbulence and high air temperatures that could be hazardous to aircraft up to 10,000 feet. The restricted area using agency informed the FAA there are no plans for further hazardous testing in the area. Therefore, the FAA is taking this action to remove restricted area R– 2936. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 by removing restricted area R–2936, West Palm Beach, FL. The using agency notified the FAA that they no longer require the restricted area for hazardous activities. Because this action removes restricted airspace no longer needed, and returns the airspace to the NAS, I find that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary. The FAA has determined that this action 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 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 the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 it returns restricted airspace that is no longer needed for its designated purpose to the NAS in the West Palm Beach, FL area. 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 311c. This action returns restricted airspace to the National Airspace System. It is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 6, 1994, the FAA amended restricted areas R-3801A, R-
3801B, and R-3801C to reflect ``U.S. Air Force, 917 Fighter Wing, 
Barksdale AFB, LA'' as the using agency. Due to multiple U.S. Air Force 
organizational initiatives since 1994, the 917th Fighter Wing changed 
to the 917th Wing and then to the 917th Fighter Group. As a result of 
the 917th Fighter Group deactivating in 2013, the using agency 
responsibilities were transferred within the U.S. Air Force to the 
307th Bomb Wing at Barksdale AFB, where they remain today.
    The organizational changes listed above did not alter the location, 
size, or use of the restricted areas from the current parameters.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 73 by updating the using agency name for restricted areas R-3801A, 
R-3801B, and R-3801C, Camp Claiborne, LA. The name change is due to an 
organizational transfer of restricted area using agency 
responsibilities within the U.S. Air Force. This is an administrative 
change that does not affect the boundaries, designated altitudes, or 
activities conducted within the restricted areas; therefore, notice and 
public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
    The FAA has determined that this action 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 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 the 
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 modifies the technical descriptions of restricted areas to ensure 
that accurate information is available to the flying public for the 
Camp Claiborne, LA, area.

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 311d. This airspace action is an administrative change to the 
description of restricted areas R-3801A, R-3801B, and R-3801C to update 
the using agency name. It does not alter the dimensions, altitudes, 
time of designation, or use of the airspace; therefore, it is not 
expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, 
and no extraordinary circumstances exists that warrant preparation of 
an environmental assessment.
