Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; El Paso, TX, 34855-34856 [2015-14810]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 117 / Thursday, June 18, 2015 / Proposed Rules wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS industry description.14 Manufacturing of room ACs can be classified under either NAICS 333415, ‘‘AirConditioning and Warm Air Heating Equipment and Commercial and Industrial Refrigeration Equipment Manufacturing’’ or NAICS 335228, ‘‘Other Major Household Appliance Manufacturing.’’ The SBA sets a threshold of 750 or 500 employees or less for an entity to be considered as a small business for these categories. These employee threshold would include all employees in a business’s parent company and any other subsidiaries. DOE used publically available information to attempt to identify any small business that manufactures room ACs. DOE cross-referenced the manufacturers listed in DOE’s Compliance Certification Management System (CCMS) with individual company Web sites and market research tools (e.g., Hoovers reports). DOE’s initial research indicates that no small businesses currently manufacture room ACs. Issue K.1 DOE requests comment on any small business manufacturers of room ACs that it should consider in its analysis. III. Submission of Comments DOE invites all interested parties to submit in writing by August 3, 2015, comments and information on matters addressed in this notice and on other matters relevant to DOE’s consideration of new or amended energy conservations standards for room ACs. After the close of the comment period, DOE will begin collecting data, conducting the analyses, and reviewing the public comments, as needed. These actions will be taken to aid in the development of a NOPR for room ACs if DOE decides to amend the standards for such products. DOE considers public participation to be a very important part of the process for developing test procedures and energy conservation standards. DOE actively encourages the participation and interaction of the public during the comment period in each stage of the rulemaking process. Interactions with and between members of the public provide a balanced discussion of the issues and assist DOE in the rulemaking process. Anyone who wishes to be added to the DOE mailing list to receive future notices and information about this rulemaking or would like to request a public meeting should contact Ms. Brenda Edwards at (202) 586–2945, or 14 Available online at: www.sba.gov/sites/default/ files/Size_Standards_Table.pdf.

This action is necessary due to the closure of the airport; therefore controlled airspace is no longer needed. Additionally, geographic coordinates for El Paso International Airport, would be changed from (lat. 31°48′24″ N., long. 106°22′40″ W.) to (lat. 31°50′59″ N., long. 106°22′48″ W.); and Biggs AAF coordinates would be changed from (lat. 31°50′58″ N., long. 106°22′48″ W.) to (lat. 31°50′59″ N., long. 106°22′48″ W.). These minor adjustments would reflect VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:59 Jun 17, 2015 Jkt 235001 the current information in the FAA’s aeronautical database. 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 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Regulatory Notices and Analyses 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, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. effective September 15, 2014 is amended as follows: Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace Area Extending Upward From 700 Feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth * * * * * 14ASW TX E5 El Paso, TX [Amended] Biggs AAF, (Fort Bliss) (lat. 31°50′59″ N., long. 106°22′48″ W.).

Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed for Incorporation by 
Reference

    This document proposes to amend 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 proposed rule. FAA Order 7400.9Y lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR), Part 71 by removing Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at West Texas Airport, El Paso, 
TX. This action is necessary due to the closure of the airport; 
therefore controlled airspace is no longer needed. Additionally, 
geographic coordinates for El Paso International Airport, would be 
changed from (lat. 31[deg]48'24'' N., long. 106[deg]22'40'' W.) to 
(lat. 31[deg]50'59'' N., long. 106[deg]22'48'' W.); and Biggs AAF 
coordinates would be changed from (lat. 31[deg]50'58'' N., long. 
106[deg]22'48'' W.) to (lat. 31[deg]50'59'' N., long. 106[deg]22'48'' 
W.). These minor adjustments would reflect the current information in 
the FAA's aeronautical database.
    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 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    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, would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.

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.
