SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On October 28, 2014, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Alma Municipal Airport, Alma, NE (79 FR 64152) Docket No. FAA–2014– 0745. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to publications, an error was found under the airport designation listing the airport in KS, instead of NE. This action corrects the error. 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 Alma Municipal Airport, Alma, NE. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures at the airport. This action enhances the safety and management of IFR operations for SIAPs at the airport. This action also correctly lists the airport state as NE instead of KS under the airport designation. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 23707 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 Alma Municipal Airport, Alma, NE. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical under the National Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E,— ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ paragraph 311a.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On October 28, 2014, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Alma Municipal 
Airport, Alma, NE (79 FR 64152) Docket No. FAA-2014-0745. Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments 
were received. Subsequent to publications, an error was found under the 
airport designation listing the airport in KS, instead of NE. This 
action corrects the error.
    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 Alma Municipal Airport, 
Alma, NE. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new Standard 
Instrument Approach Procedures at the airport. This action enhances the 
safety and management of IFR operations for SIAPs at the airport. This 
action also correctly lists the airport state as NE instead of KS under 
the airport designation.
    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 Alma Municipal Airport, Alma, 
NE.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
under the National 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 exit that 
warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.
