Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 187 / Tuesday, September 27, 2016 / Proposed Rules alternative would allow small businesses to participate in set-aside timber sales without requiring them to look for and use small mills. Although this approach would not increase hauling costs (and hence not increase the cost to the Government), since small businesses would not have to seek out and use small mills located further away, it could lead to inconsistent results. What might not be considered a ‘‘reasonable distance’’ for one sale might be so considered for another sale. Moreover, without specific data as to what hauling distance leads to a sales price that is not fair and reasonable to the Government, this approach could be challenged as being arbitrary. In addition, with respect to the 30/70 rule, instead of appraising 100% of the hauling to the nearest small mill, SBA also considered appraising, when the nearest mill is a large business, 70% of the haul costs to small mills and 30% of the haul costs to large mills. Although this approach may accurately reflect the true costs to haul the timber, SBA felt that it could unnecessarily complicate the process. SBA also considered appraising to the nearest small mill only when that mill is located no more than 60 miles from the large mill which would be used as the appraisal point under the current rules. The median distance between a small mill and the large mill FS used to appraise historical set-aside sales is about 62 miles (see Table 10). Historical sales data suggests that appraising to the nearest small mill only when that mill is located no more than 60 miles from the current appraisal point would affect 2.7% of set-aside sales and benefit approximately 35 small businesses annually (see Table 10). SBA did not adopt this approach in the proposed regulatory text as the required step of determining whether a small mill is located within 60 miles of the nearest large mill could unnecessarily complicate the process. This approach would impact fewer set-aside sales, but it would also benefit fewer small businesses. Overall, the proposed change tis consistent with SBA’s statutory mandate to assist small businesses. As an alternative to a potential policy change, although not included in this proposed rule, to include the stewardship sawtimber volume in the small business market share calculation, SBA also is also considering to include the stewardship sawtimber volume in that calculation only in those market areas where small business participation is particularly likely to be underrepresented if stewardship sawtimber volume is excluded. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Sep 26, 2016 Jkt 238001 Specifically, SBA is considering whether to include the stewardship sawtimber volume only in market areas where small businesses purchase a large percentage of stewardship contracting timber volume or where stewardship contracting timber volume represents a high percentage of overall timber volume. However, the purpose of such a regulatory amendment is to more accurately reflect small business participation rates for purposes of calculating the set-aside trigger point. 66221 (d) In setting minimum bids for small business timber sale set-asides, the appraisal point to calculate the cost of transportation and hauling shall be the nearest small business manufacturing facility where the raw materials may be legally processed as determined by the U.S. Forest Service.

ADDRESSES Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A 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 by modifying: Class E airspace designated as a surface area at Findlay Airport, Findlay, OH, by removing the segments extending from the 4.3-mile radius 7.4 miles south and northeast of the airport, and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; And Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface: By updating the geographic coordinates of Ashland County Airport and noting the name change of Samaritan Hospital Heliport (formerly Samaritian Regional Health System), Ashland, OH, to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from a 7-mile radius) of Lakefield Airport, Celina, OH, and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from a 10-mile radius) of Pickaway County Memorial Airport, Circleville, OH, with an extension from the 6.4-mile radius to 10.5 miles north of the airport, and within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from a 9.1-mile radius) of Ross County Airport, Chillicothe, OH, and updating the geographic coordinates of the Ross County Airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; By updating the geographic coordinates of Port Columbus International Airport, Columbus, OH, E:\FR\FM\27SEP1.SGM 27SEP1 asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 187 / Tuesday, September 27, 2016 / Proposed Rules removing the Don Scott NDB from the boundary description, and within a 7.0mile radius (increased from a 6.4-mile radius) of Fairfield County Airport, Lancaster, OH; Within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from a 7-mile radius) of Defiance Memorial Airport, Defiance, OH, and updating the geographic coordinates and name of Defiance Regional Medical Center Heliport (formerly Defiance Hospital), Defiance, OH, to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Within a 6.8-mile radius (reduced from a 7.4-mile radius) of Findlay Airport, Findlay, OH, and within a 7.2mile radius (increased from a 6.6-mile radius) of Bluffton Airport, Findlay, OH, and updating the geographic coordinates of these airports to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Within a 6.9-mile radius (increased from a 6.6-mile radius) of Butler County Regional Airport-Hogan Field, Hamilton, OH, and updating the name of the airport (formerly Butler County Regional Airport) to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; By removing the Allen County VOR from the boundary description of Lima Allen County Airport, Lima, OH, and updating the name of St. Rita’s Medical Center Heliport (formerly Saint Rita’s Medical Center), Lima, OH, and updating the geographic and point in space coordinates of these airports to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; And by removing the segment extending from the 6.4-mile radius 7.4 miles west of Madison County Airport, London, OH. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of NDBs, cancellation of NDB approaches, and implementation of RNAV procedures at these airports. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the airports. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Sep 26, 2016 Jkt 238001 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.

SUMMARY: Legal Authority The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) implements and enforces titles II and III of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970, as amended. 21 U.S.C. 801–971. Titles II and III are referred to as the ‘‘Controlled Substances Act’’ and the ‘‘Controlled Substances Import and Export Act,’’ respectively, and are collectively referred to as the ‘‘Controlled Substances Act’’ or the ‘‘CSA’’ for the purpose of this action. The DEA publishes the implementing regulations for these statutes in title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), chapter II. PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 The CSA and its implementing regulations are designed to prevent, detect, and eliminate the diversion of controlled substances and listed chemicals into the illicit market while providing for the legitimate medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States. Controlled substances have the potential for abuse and dependence and are controlled to protect the public health and safety. Under the CSA, each controlled substance is classified into one of five schedules based upon its potential for abuse, its currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and the degree of dependence the drug or other substance may cause. 21 U.S.C. 812. The initial schedules of controlled substances established by Congress are found at 21 U.S.C. 812(c), and the current list of all scheduled substances is published at 21 CFR part 1308. Section 201 of the CSA, 21 U.S.C. 811, provides the Attorney General with the authority to temporarily place a substance into schedule I of the CSA for two years without regard to the requirements of 21 U.S.C. 811(b) if she finds that such action is necessary to avoid imminent hazard to the public safety. 21 U.S.C. 811(h)(1). In addition, if proceedings to control a substance are initiated under 21 U.S.C. 811(a)(1), the Attorney General may extend the temporary scheduling for up to one year. 21 U.S.C. 811(h)(2). Where the necessary findings are made, a substance may be temporarily scheduled if it is not listed in any other schedule under section 202 of the CSA, 21 U.S.C. 812, or if there is no exemption or approval in effect for the substance under section 505 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA), 21 U.S.C. 355. 21 U.S.C. 811(h)(1). The Attorney General has delegated scheduling authority under 21 U.S.C. 811 to the Administrator of the DEA. 28 CFR 0.100. Background Section 201(h)(4) of the CSA, 21 U.S.C. 811(h)(4), requires the Administrator to notify the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) of his intention to temporarily place a substance into schedule I of the CSA.1 The 1 As discussed in a memorandum of understanding entered into by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the FDA acts as the lead agency within the HHS in carrying out the Secretary’s scheduling responsibilities under the CSA, with the concurrence of NIDA. 50 FR 9518, Mar. 8, 1985. The Secretary of the HHS has delegated to the Assistant Secretary for Health of the HHS the authority to make domestic drug scheduling recommendations. 58 FR 35460, July 1, 1993.

Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed for Incorporation by 
Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective 
September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A 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 by modifying:
    Class E airspace designated as a surface area at Findlay Airport, 
Findlay, OH, by removing the segments extending from the 4.3-mile 
radius 7.4 miles south and northeast of the airport, and updating the 
geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database;
    And Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface:
    By updating the geographic coordinates of Ashland County Airport 
and noting the name change of Samaritan Hospital Heliport (formerly 
Samaritian Regional Health System), Ashland, OH, to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database;
    Within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from a 7-mile radius) of 
Lakefield Airport, Celina, OH, and updating the geographic coordinates 
of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    Within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from a 10-mile radius) of 
Pickaway County Memorial Airport, Circleville, OH, with an extension 
from the 6.4-mile radius to 10.5 miles north of the airport, and within 
a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from a 9.1-mile radius) of Ross County 
Airport, Chillicothe, OH, and updating the geographic coordinates of 
the Ross County Airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database;
    By updating the geographic coordinates of Port Columbus 
International Airport, Columbus, OH,

[[Page 66223]]

removing the Don Scott NDB from the boundary description, and within a 
7.0-mile radius (increased from a 6.4-mile radius) of Fairfield County 
Airport, Lancaster, OH; Within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from a 7-mile 
radius) of Defiance Memorial Airport, Defiance, OH, and updating the 
geographic coordinates and name of Defiance Regional Medical Center 
Heliport (formerly Defiance Hospital), Defiance, OH, to coincide with 
the FAA's aeronautical database;
    Within a 6.8-mile radius (reduced from a 7.4-mile radius) of 
Findlay Airport, Findlay, OH, and within a 7.2-mile radius (increased 
from a 6.6-mile radius) of Bluffton Airport, Findlay, OH, and updating 
the geographic coordinates of these airports to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database;
    Within a 6.9-mile radius (increased from a 6.6-mile radius) of 
Butler County Regional Airport-Hogan Field, Hamilton, OH, and updating 
the name of the airport (formerly Butler County Regional Airport) to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    By removing the Allen County VOR from the boundary description of 
Lima Allen County Airport, Lima, OH, and updating the name of St. 
Rita's Medical Center Heliport (formerly Saint Rita's Medical Center), 
Lima, OH, and updating the geographic and point in space coordinates of 
these airports to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    And by removing the segment extending from the 6.4-mile radius 7.4 
miles west of Madison County Airport, London, OH.
    Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of 
NDBs, cancellation of NDB approaches, and implementation of RNAV 
procedures at these airports. Controlled airspace is necessary for the 
safety and management of standard instrument approach procedures for 
IFR operations at the airports.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 
6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and 
effective September 15, 2016, 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.
