Download as PDF 39604 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 117 / Friday, June 17, 2016 / Proposed Rules E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Frank Wiley Field Airport, Miles City, MT. The Class E surface airspace would be modified to a 5-mile radius of Frank Wiley Field Airport to support terminal operations below 700 feet above the surface and to account for rising terrain. Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class E surface area would be removed as there are no Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) procedures that require a surface extension. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be modified to an 8-mile radius of Frank Wiley Field Airport to support IFR departures below 1,200 feet above the surface due to rising terrain. After a review of the airspace, the FAA found modification of the airspace necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, 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 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. sradovich on DSK3TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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 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 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 24, 2015, the State of Maryland through the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) submitted a revision to the Maryland SIP comprised of revisions and amendments to COMAR 26.01.01 General Administrative Requirements related to requirements for COMs and CEMs and the addition of new COMAR 26.01.31 Quality Assurance Requirements for Continuous Opacity Monitors (COMs). On February 26, 2016, MDE provided a supplemental letter indicating MDE was excluding portions of COMAR 26.11.01 submitted in the November 24, 2015 SIP submittal from EPA’s review and consideration as a SIP revision. The February 26, 2016 letter from MDE is available in the docket for this rulemaking and is available online at http://www.regulations.gov.1 I. Background On February 28, 1996 (61 FR 6418), EPA approved Maryland regulation COMAR 26.11.01.10 Continuous Emissions Monitoring (CEM) Requirements into the Maryland SIP. COMAR 26.11.01.10 required large fuelburning equipment burning coal and residual oil to install COMs and demonstrate compliance using COM data. The regulation established monitoring requirements, CEM installation requirements, CEM installation and certification schedules, quality assurance procedures for opacity monitors, and recordkeeping and reporting requirements. The regulation incorporated by reference Maryland’s Technical Memorandum 90–01 (TM 90), and required compliance determinations for the State’s visible emissions limits and QA/QC for COMs in accordance with the procedures therein. The terms CEMs and COMs are used interchangeably in COMAR 26.11.01.10, therefore MDE determined it was necessary to establish separate 1 Specifically, in the February 26, 2016 letter from MDE to EPA, MDE withdrew from EPA’s review and consideration the text in COMAR 26.11.01.10.A(4), in COMAR 26.11.01.10.B(4), in COMAR 26.11.01.10D(2)(c), and in COMAR 26.11.01.10.F which had initially been included in the November 25, 2015 SIP submittal.
