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 Frm 00033 Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is noncontroversial 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 The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E surface area airspace at Perry Stokes Airport, Trinidad, CO, to within a 4.6mile radius of the airport (from a 4.2mile radius), with a segment extending from the airport 4.6-mile radius to 7.2 miles southwest of the airport. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be modified to within a 7.2-mile radius of the airport (from an 8-mile radius) from the airport 232° bearing clockwise to the 056° bearing, and within a 4.6-mile radius from the airport 056° bearing clockwise to the 232° bearing, and with a segment extending from the 4.6-mile radius of the airport to 9.3 miles southwest of the airport. The Class E 1,200 feet airspace would be removed as this airspace is controlled by the Blue Mesa en route airspace area. Also, the airport’s geographic coordinates would be updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. New RNAV standard instrument approach procedures, due to decommissioning of the Trinidad NDB, has made this action necessary for the safety, efficiency, and management of IFR operations at the airport. 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. PO 00000 78089 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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.

I. General Information Does this action apply to me? This action may be of interest to you if you are an educational institution, company, or nonprofit organization, especially one that has or would like to receive Federal funding for scientific research and development. II. Background These proposed rule revisions are promulgated under the University and Small Business Patent Procedures Act of 1980, Public Law 96–517 (as amended), codified at title 35 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) 200 et seq., commonly known as the ‘‘Bayh-Dole Act,’’ which governs rights in inventions made with Federal assistance. The Bayh-Dole Act obligates nonprofit organizations and small business firms (‘‘contractors’’), and large businesses, as directed by Executive Order 12591, to disclose each ‘‘subject invention’’ (that is, each invention conceived or first actually reduced to practice in the performance of work under a funding agreement, 35 U.S.C. 201(e)) within a reasonable time after the invention becomes known to the contractor, 35 U.S.C. 202(c)(1), and permits contractors to elect, within a reasonable time after disclosure, to retain title to a subject invention 35 U.S.C. 202(a). Under certain defined ‘‘exceptional’’ circumstances, Bayh-Dole permits the Government to restrict or eliminate the contractor’s right to elect to retain title, 35 U.S.C. 202(a), 202(b), and under such circumstances, rights vest in the Government. The Secretary of Commerce has delegated to the Director of NIST the authority to promulgate implementing regulations. Regulations implementing 35 U.S.C. 202 through 204 are codified at 37 CFR part 401, ‘‘Rights to Inventions Made by Nonprofit Organizations and Small Business Firms under Government Grants, Contracts, and Co-operative Agreements,’’ and apply to all Federal agencies, 37 CFR 401.1(b). These regulations govern all subject inventions, 37 CFR 401.2(d), even if the Federal government is not the sole source of funding for either the conception or the reduction to practice, 37 CFR 401.1(a). Regulations implementing 35 U.S.C. 208, specifying the terms and conditions upon which federally owned inventions, other than inventions owned by the Tennessee Valley Authority, may be licensed on a nonexclusive, partially exclusive, or exclusive basis, are codified at 37 CFR E:\FR\FM\07NOP1.SGM 07NOP1

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 surface area airspace 
at Perry Stokes Airport, Trinidad, CO, to within a 4.6-mile radius of 
the airport (from a 4.2-mile radius), with a segment extending from the 
airport 4.6-mile radius to 7.2 miles southwest of the airport. Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be 
modified to within a 7.2-mile radius of the airport (from an 8-mile 
radius) from the airport 232[deg] bearing clockwise to the 056[deg] 
bearing, and within a 4.6-mile radius from the airport 056[deg] bearing 
clockwise to the 232[deg] bearing, and with a segment extending from 
the 4.6-mile radius of the airport to 9.3 miles southwest of the 
airport. The Class E 1,200 feet airspace would be removed as this 
airspace is controlled by the Blue Mesa en route airspace area. Also, 
the airport's geographic coordinates would be updated to coincide with 
the FAA's aeronautical database. New RNAV standard instrument approach 
procedures, due to decommissioning of the Trinidad NDB, has made this 
action necessary for the safety, efficiency, and management of IFR 
operations at the airport.
    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 proposed 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.
