SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: 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 PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends Class D and Class E airspace and removes Class E airspace in the Columbus, OH, area. History On July 17th, 2015, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class D and Class E airspace and remove Class E airspace in the Columbus, OH, area. (80 FR 42434). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9Z dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015, 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 7400.9Z, 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 document. 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 D and E airspace in the Columbus, OH, area. Decommissioning of the Dan Scott NDB navigation aid and cancellation of the NDB approach at Ohio State University Airport has made this action necessary. Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D is removed as it is no longer required. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Port Columbus International Airport is reconfigured due to the Dan Scott NDB decommissioning. The geographic coordinates of Ohio State University Airport and Port Columbus International Airport are updated to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database. Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6004, 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 E:\FR\FM\20OCR1.SGM 20OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 202 / Tuesday, October 20, 2015 / Rules and Regulations September 15, 2015, is amended as follows: 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 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exists that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

The ODNI published a notice and a proposed rule implementing these exemptions on May 27, 2015. The enumerated exemptions will be invoked on a case by case basis, as necessary to preclude interference with investigatory, intelligence and counterterrorism functions and responsibilities of the ODNI. The ODNI received no comments regarding the proposed rule. DATES: This final rule is effective October 20, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer L. Hudson, Director, Information Management Division, 703– 874–8085. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background On May 27, 2015, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) published notice of two new Privacy Act systems of records: Counterintelligence Trends Analyses Records (ODNI/NCSC–002) and Insider Threat Program Records (ODNI–22). These systems of records contain records that range from Unclassified to Top Secret. Accordingly, in conjunction with publication of these systems notices, and pursuant to exemption authority afforded the head of the agency by the Privacy Act, the ODNI initiated a rulemaking to exempt the systems in relevant part from provisions identified at subsection (k) of the Act (enumerated above). The proposed rulemaking also sought to amend the system of records entitled Information Technology Systems Activity and Access Records (ODNI–19), originally published at 76 FR 42742 (July 19, 2011), by adding subsection (k)(2) of the Privacy Act as a basis for exempting records covered by that system from the provisions noted.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 Class D and Class E airspace and removes Class E airspace 
in the Columbus, OH, area.

History

    On July 17th, 2015, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class D and Class E 
airspace and remove Class E airspace in the Columbus, OH, area. (80 FR 
42434). Interested parties were invited to participate in this 
rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the 
FAA. No comments were received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9Z dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 
2015, 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 7400.9Z, 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 document. 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 D and E airspace in the Columbus, OH, area. 
Decommissioning of the Dan Scott NDB navigation aid and cancellation of 
the NDB approach at Ohio State University Airport has made this action 
necessary. Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D is 
removed as it is no longer required. Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface at Port Columbus International Airport 
is reconfigured due to the Dan Scott NDB decommissioning. The 
geographic coordinates of Ohio State University Airport and Port 
Columbus International Airport are updated to coincide with the FAAs 
aeronautical database.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 
5000, 6004, 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

[[Page 63427]]

71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations listed in this document 
will be published subsequently in the Order.

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 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exists that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
