Download as PDF 53342 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 156 / Friday, August 12, 2016 / Proposed Rules complaints raised by contractor employees in a prompt and equitable manner. Accordingly, in considering what remedy is appropriate for an act of retaliation concerning nuclear safety, the Director will take into account the extent to which a contractor cooperated in proceedings for remedial relief. d. In considering what remedy is appropriate for an act of retaliation concerning nuclear safety, the Director will also consider the egregiousness of the particular case including the level of management involved in the alleged retaliation and the specificity of the acts of retaliation. e. When the Director undertakes an investigation of an allegation of DOE contractor retaliation against an employee under part 820, the Director will apprise persons interviewed and interested parties that the investigative activity is being taken pursuant to the nuclear safety procedures of part 820 and not pursuant to the procedures of part 708.

Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to 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. FAA Order 7400.9Z 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 to modify the Kahului Airport, Kahului, HI, Class E airspace area designated as an extension to a Class C surface area. The current Class E surface area airspace extension to the north is not required and to the south is longer than required to support IFR operations to/from the airport. The proposed Class E surface airspace includes that area within 3 miles each side of the airport 203° bearing extending from the airport 5-mile radius to 7 miles southwest of the airport. This proposal would also modify the Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface by excluding that area extending beyond 12 miles from the coast, and would slightly expand the airspace northeast of the airport to within 3.6 miles each side of the 038° bearing from the airport extending from the 5-mile radius to 11.7 miles northeast of the airport. The airspace area would otherwise remain the same, except as noted above. The expanded Class E airspace area is necessary to contain IFR arrival E:\FR\FM\12AUP1.SGM 12AUP1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 156 / Friday, August 12, 2016 / Proposed Rules operations descending below 1,500 feet above the surface, and IFR departure operations below 1,200 feet above the surface. This proposal would also remove reference to the Maui VORTAC from the airspace legal descriptions for the Class E3 airspace area designated as an extension to the Class C surface area, and the Class E5 airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. Changes to the available instrument flight procedures since the last review, advances in GPS mapping accuracy, and a reliance on precise geographic coordinates to define airport and airspace reference points have made the proposed airspace redesign necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 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 designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. 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. ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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: 

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 would amend Class E airspace at Kahului Airport, Kahului, HI.

Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed for Incorporation by 
Reference

    This document proposes to 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. FAA Order 7400.9Z 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 to modify the Kahului Airport, Kahului, 
HI, Class E airspace area designated as an extension to a Class C 
surface area. The current Class E surface area airspace extension to 
the north is not required and to the south is longer than required to 
support IFR operations to/from the airport. The proposed Class E 
surface airspace includes that area within 3 miles each side of the 
airport 203[deg] bearing extending from the airport 5-mile radius to 7 
miles southwest of the airport.
    This proposal would also modify the Class E airspace area extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface by excluding that area extending 
beyond 12 miles from the coast, and would slightly expand the airspace 
northeast of the airport to within 3.6 miles each side of the 038[deg] 
bearing from the airport extending from the 5-mile radius to 11.7 miles 
northeast of the airport. The airspace area would otherwise remain the 
same, except as noted above. The expanded Class E airspace area is 
necessary to contain IFR arrival

[[Page 53343]]

operations descending below 1,500 feet above the surface, and IFR 
departure operations below 1,200 feet above the surface.
    This proposal would also remove reference to the Maui VORTAC from 
the airspace legal descriptions for the Class E3 airspace area 
designated as an extension to the Class C surface area, and the Class 
E5 airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. 
Changes to the available instrument flight procedures since the last 
review, advances in GPS mapping accuracy, and a reliance on precise 
geographic coordinates to define airport and airspace reference points 
have made the proposed airspace redesign necessary for the safety and 
management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 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 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.
