SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 amends Class E airspace at Carmi Municipal Airport, Carmi, IL; De Kalb Taylor Municipal Airport, De Kalb, IL; Harrisburg-Raleigh Airport, Harrisburg, IL; Kewanne Municipal Airport, Kewanne, IL; Litchfield Municipal Airport, Litchfield, IL; Edgar County Airport, Paris, IL; and Taylorville Municipal Airport, Taylorville, IL. History On July 1, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), (81 FR 43124) Docket No. FAA–2016–6985, to modify Class E airspace at Carmi Municipal Airport, Carmi, IL; De Kalb Taylor Municipal Airport, De Kalb, IL; Harrisburg-Raleigh Airport, Harrisburg, IL; Kewanne Municipal Airport, Kewanne, IL; Litchfield Municipal Airport, Litchfield, IL; Edgar County Airport, Paris, IL; and Taylorville Municipal Airport, Taylorville, IL. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. The FAA discovered a typographical error in the geographic coordinate of Harrisburg-Raleigh Airport which has been corrected in this action. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which E:\FR\FM\10NOR1.SGM 10NOR1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 218 / Thursday, November 10, 2016 / Rules and Regulations is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1.

Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of the standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at these airports. 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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 has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 5–6.5.a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

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 amends Class E airspace at Carmi Municipal Airport, Carmi, IL; De 
Kalb Taylor Municipal Airport, De Kalb, IL; Harrisburg-Raleigh Airport, 
Harrisburg, IL; Kewanne Municipal Airport, Kewanne, IL; Litchfield 
Municipal Airport, Litchfield, IL; Edgar County Airport, Paris, IL; and 
Taylorville Municipal Airport, Taylorville, IL.

History

    On July 1, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice 
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), (81 FR 43124) Docket No. FAA-2016-6985, 
to modify Class E airspace at Carmi Municipal Airport, Carmi, IL; De 
Kalb Taylor Municipal Airport, De Kalb, IL; Harrisburg-Raleigh Airport, 
Harrisburg, IL; Kewanne Municipal Airport, Kewanne, IL; Litchfield 
Municipal Airport, Litchfield, IL; Edgar County Airport, Paris, IL; and 
Taylorville Municipal Airport, Taylorville, IL. Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written 
comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. The FAA 
discovered a typographical error in the geographic coordinate of 
Harrisburg-Raleigh Airport which has been corrected in this action.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 
2016, which

[[Page 78903]]

is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E airspace 
designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends 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 Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at the following airports:

Within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from the 7-mile radius) of Carmi 
Municipal Airport, Carmi, IL, and updating the geographic coordinates 
of this airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
Within a 6.8-mile radius (increased from the 6.6-mile radius) of De 
Kalb Taylor Municipal Airport, De Kalb, IL, and updating the geographic 
coordinates of this airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database;
Within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from the 7-mile radius) of 
Harrisburg-Raleigh Airport, Harrisburg, IL, and updating the geographic 
coordinates of this airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database;
Within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from the 7-mile radius) of Kewanee 
Municipal Airport, Kewanee, IL;
Within a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from the 7-mile radius) of Litchfield 
Municipal Airport, Litchfield, IL, and updating the geographic 
coordinates of this airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database;
Within a 6.4-mile radius (increased from the 6.3-mile radius) of Edgar 
County Airport, Paris, IL, and updating the geographic coordinates of 
this airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database; and
Within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from the 7-mile radius) of 
Taylorville Municipal Airport, Taylorville, IL, and updating the 
geographic coordinates of this airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.

    These airspace reconfigurations are necessary due to the 
decommissioning of NDBs, cancellation of NDB approaches, or 
implementation of RNAV standard instrument procedures at these 
airports. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and 
management of the standard instrument approach procedures for IFR 
operations at these airports.

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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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 has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 5-6.5.a. This airspace action is not expected 
to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no
