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 Paso Robles Municipal Airport, Paso Robles, CA. Comments Invited Interested parties are invited to participate in this proposed rulemaking by submitting such written data, views, or arguments, as they may desire. Comments that provide the factual basis supporting the views and suggestions presented are particularly helpful in developing reasoned regulatory decisions on the proposal. Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, aeronautical, economic, environmental, and energy-related aspects of the proposal.

Additionally, Class E en route airspace upward from 1,200 feet above the surface would be established to adjoin the Monterey, Lemoore, Bakersfield, and Santa Barbara Class E airspace areas upward from 1,200 feet above the surface, to provide en route controlled airspace where the Federal airway structure is inadequate. Also, this action would remove the existing Class E transitional airspace upward from 1,200 feet above the surface since this would no longer be necessary and would be redundant with the establishment of the larger en route airspace, described above. The geographic coordinates of the airport would be adjusted to be in concert with the FAA’s aeronautical database.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This regulation applies to the active component Army and U.S. Army Reserve, Department of the Army Civilian Police, Department of the Army Civilian Detectives, Department of the Army Security Guards, contracted or contractor security force operations (such as detector dog support), Family members, Department of the Army Civilians, and other personnel on Army installations. It also applies to the Army National Guard of the United States when Federalized under Title 10, United States Code. This regulation is required for unit personnel preparing for mobilization and deployment. The internal guidance is available in AR 190–30, Military Police Investigations, and can be found at http://www.apd.army.mil/Search/ ePubsSearch/ ePubsSearchForm.aspx?x=AR. This regulation discusses policies for conducting law enforcement and specified security operations on Army PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 78951 installations, facilities and activities. Compliance with this regulation assures consistent delivery of protection, law enforcement, and safety assistance to Soldiers, Family members, Department of the Army Civilians, and other personnel on Army installations. The Army recognized there is a void in internal guidance concerning the conduct of law enforcement operations on installations. As a result, the Army revised AR 190–30, which includes guidance on the operation of detention cells and detention of civilians. Due to the subject matter’s impact on the public, the Army is proposing to add provisions in the CFR concerning Detention Cell Operations which provide guidance on the detention of military and civilian personnel by Army law enforcement. This rule will be included in DoD’s retrospective plan, completed in August 2011, and will be reported in future status updates of DoD’s retrospective review in accordance with the requirements in Executive Order 13563. DoD’s full plan can be accessed at: http://www.regulations.gov/ #!docketDetail;D=DOD-2011-OS-0036. Authority for This Regulation The legal authority for this action is 10 U.S.C. 807—Article 7, Apprehension. This article specifically covers the authority for apprehension or taking of a person into custody. Costs and Benefits This rule will have no monetary effect upon the public as it only directs Army law enforcement and installation leadership’s efforts in the conduct of their operations. Their efforts under this guidance ensure the effective employment of police and security forces to assist, protect, and defend the communities they serve on Army installations. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Department of the Army certifies that the proposed rule is not subject to the Regulatory Flexibility Act because the rule does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601–612. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Department of the Army determined that this rule does not include a mandate that may result in estimated costs to State, local or tribal governments in the aggregate, or the private sector, of $100 million or more.

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, 2015, 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, Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface, and establishing Class E en route airspace upward from 1,200 
feet above the surface at Paso Robles Municipal Airport, Paso Robles, 
CA. The FAA is transitioning from a system of ground based navigational 
aids, which are being decommissioned, to Global Navigation Satellite 
System (GNSS) for navigation and found airspace redesign necessary to 
support new GNSS standard instrument approach procedures and en route, 
point-to-point clearances for which the Federal airway structure is 
inadequate. The Class E surface area airspace would be slightly 
increased to contain arrival aircraft using IFR standard instrument 
approach procedures as they descend below 1,000 feet above the surface, 
and the language in the regulatory text excluding the Hunter Low A, 
Hunter Low B, and Roberts Military Operations Areas would be removed 
since exclusion is not necessary nor currently shown on published 
aeronautical charts. Also, the Class E airspace upward from 700 feet 
above the surface would be slightly enlarged north and southeast, and 
reduced southwest, to only that area necessary to contain IFR arrival 
aircraft as they descend below 1,500 feet above the surface, and IFR 
departure aircraft as they climb to 1,200 feet above the surface. 
Additionally, Class E en route airspace upward from 1,200 feet above 
the surface would be established to adjoin the Monterey, Lemoore, 
Bakersfield, and Santa Barbara Class E airspace areas upward from 1,200 
feet above the surface, to provide en route controlled airspace where 
the Federal airway structure is inadequate. Also, this action would 
remove the existing Class E transitional airspace upward from 1,200 
feet above the surface since this would no longer be necessary and 
would be redundant with the establishment of the larger en route 
airspace, described above. The geographic coordinates of the airport 
would be adjusted to be in concert with the FAA's aeronautical 
database.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, 
6005, and 6006, 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 D and 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.
