Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed for Incorporation by Reference This document would amend 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.

The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at McNary Field Airport, Salem, OR. On March 8, 2016 a Final Rule was published modifying the airspace at McNary Field, Salem, OR (81FR 12002). A comment was received on May 10, 2016 questioning the safety of the LOC/DME BC RWY 13 approach. The FAA concurred that the presence of terrain in the procedure turn transition airspace increased the risk to IFR operations into McNary Field, Salem, OR. A Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) was issued advising pilots this approach was non-available pending the outcome of this proposal. After a review of the airspace, the FAA identified that the approach to runway 31 also was not fully contained in controlled airspace and would also be modified by this proposal. The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be modified by adding segments extending from the 6.7mile radius to 13.50 miles northwest of the airport, and extending from the 8.2mile radius to 16.5 miles southeast of the airport. 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 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:48 Jun 28, 2016 Jkt 238001 under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY 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. 40 CFR Part 52 [EPA–R07–OAR–2016–0303; FRL–9948–12– Region 7] Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; State of Kansas; Cross-State Air Pollution Rule List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). AGENCY: The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve a December 1, 2015, State Implementation Plan (SIP) submittal from Kansas concerning allocations of Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) emission allowances. Under CSAPR, large electricity generating units in Kansas are subject to a Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) requiring the units to participate in CSAPR’s Federal trading program for annual emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX). This action would approve Kansas’ adoption into its SIP of state regulations establishing state-determined allocations to replace EPA’s default allocations to Kansas units of CSAPR allowances for annual NOX emissions for 2017 through 2019. EPA is proposing to approve the SIP revision because it meets the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA) and EPA’s regulations for approval of an abbreviated SIP revision replacing EPA’s default allocations of CSAPR emission allowances with statedetermined allocations. Approval of this SIP revision would not alter any provision of CSAPR’s Federal trading program for annual NOX emissions as applied to Kansas units other than the allowance allocation provisions, and the FIP requiring the units to participate in the trading program (as modified by the SIP revision) would remain in place. DATES: Comments must be received by July 29, 2016. ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA–R07– OAR–2016–0303, to http:// www.regulations.gov. Follow the online instructions for submitting comments. Once submitted, comments cannot be edited or removed from Regulations.gov. The EPA may publish any comment received to its public docket. Do not submit electronically any information you consider to be Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Multimedia submissions (audio, video, etc.) must be accompanied by a written comment.

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 modifying Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at McNary Field Airport, Salem, 
OR. On March 8, 2016 a Final Rule was published modifying the airspace 
at McNary Field, Salem, OR (81FR 12002). A comment was received on May 
10, 2016 questioning the safety of the LOC/DME BC RWY 13 approach. The 
FAA concurred that the presence of terrain in the procedure turn 
transition airspace increased the risk to IFR operations into McNary 
Field, Salem, OR. A Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) was issued advising pilots 
this approach was non-available pending the outcome of this proposal. 
After a review of the airspace, the FAA identified that the approach to 
runway 31 also was not fully contained in controlled airspace and would 
also be modified by this proposal. The Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface would be modified by adding 
segments extending from the 6.7-mile radius to 13.50 miles northwest of 
the airport, and extending from the 8.2-mile radius to 16.5 miles 
southeast of the airport.
    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 71.1. The Class 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 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.
