SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\28SER1.SGM 28SER1 58200 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 187 / Monday, September 28, 2015 / Rules and Regulations Authority for This Rulemaking The Rule 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 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 amends controlled airspace at Portland International Airport, Portland, OR. This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 modifies Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class C airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Portland International Airport, Portland, OR. A review of the airspace revealed modification necessary due to the decommissioned Portland VOR/DME and Laker NDB navigation aids. Also, the geographic coordinates of the airport are amended to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class C airspace is modified to an area 4.7 miles west and 4 miles east of the 044° bearing from Portland International Airport extending to 18 miles northeast of the airport. The lateral boundary for Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is defined utilizing latitudinal and longitudinal reference points instead of navigation aids. This does not change the lateral boundaries or operating requirements of the airspace. History On July 20, 2015, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify Class E surface area airspace designated as an extension to the Class C airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Portland International Airport, Portland, OR, (80 FR 42760). 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 publication, the FAA found minor latitudinal and longitudinal adjustments were required to ensure sectional chart accuracy. The 2.7 mile references are changed to 3 miles to compensate for calculation differences between nautical and statute miles. These errors have been corrected in this document. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6003 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9Z, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015, 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. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference 17:11 Sep 25, 2015 Jkt 235001 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, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. 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 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. Environmental Review This document amends FAA Order 7400.9Z, airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015. FAA Order 7400.9Z is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this final rule. FAA Order 7400.9Z lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. VerDate Sep<11>2014 Regulatory Notices and Analyses 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.

(CBI) in which they announced a partial settlement of the above proceeding for certain internet transmissions by college radio stations and other noncommercial webcasters.1 SoundExchange and CBI requested that the Judges adopt their agreement as a partial settlement of rates and terms under Section 112(e) and 114 of the Copyright Act (Act) for eligible nonsubscription transmissions by tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: 1 Joint Motion to Adopt Partial Settlement, Docket No. 2014–CRB–0001–WR (2016–2020) (Oct. 7, 2014) (Joint Motion). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:11 Sep 25, 2015 Jkt 235001 noncommercial educational webcasters (NEWs) over the internet, and related ephemeral recordings. The Judges published the proposed settlement and requested comments from the public.2 For the reasons discussed below, the Judges hereby adopt the proposed settlement, with the exception of a single provision that would identify SoundExchange as the designated Collective for the upcoming license period. The Judges defer designation of the Collective for the upcoming licensing period until the conclusion of the proceeding. Background The proposed SoundExchange/CBI settlement (Settlement) generally continues in effect, with certain adjustments, the extant rates for eligible NEWs that were codified in 37 CFR part 380 Subpart C. The Judges adopted those rates and terms pursuant to Section 801(b)(7)(A) of the Act as part of the prior webcasting determination. See Digital Performance Right in Sound Recordings and Ephemeral Recordings, 76 FR 13026 (Web-III). Under the proposed Settlement, an eligible NEW would pay a $500 annual fee for each of the individual channels, side channels, or stations through which it makes Eligible Transmissions. Proposed Rule 37 CFR 380.22(a). The $500 fee would also serve as the minimum fee for eligible NEWs. All other NEWs would pay the royalties established under Part 380 Subpart A applicable to noncommercial webcasters. Proposed Rule 37 CFR 380.22(c). To qualify for the rates under the Settlement, a NEW’s total monthly per channel or per station transmissions must remain below 159,140 aggregate tuning hours (ATH). If a NEW’s transmissions exceed that threshold, the NEW must pay royalties for the relevant month, and for the remainder of the relevant year, in accordance with the otherwise applicable noncommercial rates to be determined in this proceeding. In subsequent years, a NEW that wishes to pay the rates under the Settlement must take affirmative steps not to exceed the 159,140 ATH threshold. Proposed Rule 37 CFR 380.22(b). Commercial webcasters are required to make detailed, census reports of all sound recordings they transmit. NEWs with limited listenership may pay the Collective a proxy fee to avoid the burden of census reporting. The Settlement increases the listenership cap (from 55,000 ATH to 80,000 ATH) 2 See PO 00000 79 FR 65609 (Nov. 5, 2014). Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 58201 for services electing the proxy fee in lieu of the census reporting option provided in 37 CFR 380.23(g)(1).

Comment Summary The Judges received nearly 60 comments—some supporting and some opposing adoption of the Settlement—in response to their request for comments published in the Federal Register. Many of the comments appeared to be form letters; hence, the number of commenters exceeded the number of substantive comments. Some of the comments came from affiliated entities. The Judges considered the views of all commenters in reaching their decision and all comments are posted to the CRB’s Web site. The Judges discuss illustrative examples here. Comments Supporting Adoption of the Settlement In its comment supporting adoption of the joint proposal, CBI noted that the Settlement contains the same terms that NEWs have been successfully using for several years to comply with the statutory license for webcasting copyright works. Keeping these rates and terms in place will prevent disruption of their operation and ensure the noncommercial educational webcasters [remain able to provide] creators of musical recordings access to the noncommercial educational listener market.

CBI further noted that [T]he current Settlement continues essentially the same recordkeeping terms that have been integral for NEWs to be able to comply with the statutory license. In particular, these recordkeeping terms include an optional proxy fee, which allows NEWs to pay an additional $100 in lieu of complying with ordinarily-applicable recordkeeping rules, which are frequently impossible for NEWs to comply with due to their more limited budgets, older broadcasting technology, and other operational limitations. [T]he new Settlement makes this extremely necessary reporting option available for more stations than the previous one did. It also continues to provide recordkeeping relief for those stations whose audience size makes them ineligible for this 3 The Settlement also ‘‘makes a handful of further minor changes to the current rates and terms for NEWs.’’ [SoundExchange’s] Comments Concerning Proposed Settlement at n.1 (Nov. 26, 2014) (SoundExchange Comments).

Amendment of Class E Airspace; Portland, OR

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action modifies Class E surface area airspace designated 
as an extension to Class C airspace, and Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Portland International 
Airport, Portland, OR. After reviewing the airspace, the FAA found the 
Portland VHF omnidirectional radio range/distance measuring equipment 
(VOR/DME) and Laker non-directional beacon (NDB) has been 
decommissioned, thereby necessitating airspace redesign for the safety 
and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the 
airport. This action also corrects the geographic coordinates of the 
airport.

DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, December 10, 2015. The Director of the 
Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 
title 1, Code of Federal Regulations, part 51, subject to the annual 
revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    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 
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 amends controlled airspace at Portland International Airport, 
Portland, OR.

History

    On July 20, 2015, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify Class E surface area 
airspace designated as an extension to the Class C airspace, and Class 
E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Portland 
International Airport, Portland, OR, (80 FR 42760). 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 publication, the FAA found minor latitudinal and 
longitudinal adjustments were required to ensure sectional chart 
accuracy. The 2.7 mile references are changed to 3 miles to compensate 
for calculation differences between nautical and statute miles. These 
errors have been corrected in this document.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6003 and 
6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9Z, dated August 6, 2015, and 
effective September 15, 2015, 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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.9Z, airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 
2015. FAA Order 7400.9Z is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this final rule. FAA Order 7400.9Z lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 modifies Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class C 
airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Portland International Airport, Portland, OR. A review of 
the airspace revealed modification necessary due to the decommissioned 
Portland VOR/DME and Laker NDB navigation aids. Also, the geographic 
coordinates of the airport are amended to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.
    Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class C airspace is 
modified to an area 4.7 miles west and 4 miles east of the 044[deg] 
bearing from Portland International Airport extending to 18 miles 
northeast of the airport. The lateral boundary for Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is defined utilizing 
latitudinal and longitudinal reference points instead of navigation 
aids. This does not change the lateral boundaries or operating 
requirements of the airspace.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    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, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. 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 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.

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.
