SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On October 15, 2014, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Class E airspace for 
the Cypress, TX, area, creating controlled airspace at Dry Creek 
Airport (79 FR 61790) Docket No. FAA-2014-0743. Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written 
comments on the proposal to the FAA. One anonymous favorable comment 
was submitted.
    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 part 71.1. The Class 
E airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.9Y, airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 6, 2014, and effective September 15, 
2014. FAA Order 7400.9Y is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this final rule. FAA Order 7400.9Y lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

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 Dry Creek Airport, 
Cypress, TX, to accommodate new SIAPS developed at Dry Creek 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

[[Page 22895]]

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 Dry Creek Airport, Cypress, 
TX.

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.
