Availability and Summary of Documents 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 considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 to amend Class E Airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area at Elmira/Corning Regional Airport, Elmira, NY. The ERINN Outer Marker has been decommissioned, requiring airspace reconfiguration for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. This action also proposes to eliminate the NOTAM information that reads, ‘‘This Class E airspace area is effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Airport/Facility Directory.’’ From the regulatory text of the above airspace as it is not needed to supplement the existing part-time Class D airspace surrounding the airport. The PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 geographic coordinates of the airport would be amended for Class D and Class E airspace to be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6002, and 6004, 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 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. 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 proposed rule, when promulgated, will 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 would 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.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Kerry Kehoe, Federal Consistency Specialist, Office for Coastal Management, NOAA, at 240–533–0782 or kerry.kehoe@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The federal Coastal Zone Management Act provides incentives to states and U.S. territories to develop programs to manage coastal resources and uses. The PRCZMP was approved NOAA in 1978. Since that time, statutory and regulatory changes have been made to the organizational structure of the land use agencies which comprise the PRCZMP; the land use authority of local governments; and the permit decision-making process. These changes are in force and being implemented as laws of the Commonwealth pursuant to the Puerto Rico Permit Process Reform Act of 2009 (Law 161), as amended by Law 151 of 2013, and pursuant to the Autonomous Municipalities Act of 1991 (Law 81). In order to demonstrate that the program continues to meet the requirements for program approval established under the Coastal Zone Management Act and its implementing regulations, the Department of Natural and Environmental Resources has submitted these changes to NOAA for approval. Copies of the Commonwealth’s submission are available on the Regulations.Gov Web site under the Docket No. ‘‘NOAA–NOS–2016–0148.’’ NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management has determined that these changes are substantial and should be reviewed as a program amendment in accordance with 15 CFR part 923, subpart H. NOAA held a public hearing on the amendment in San Juan, Puerto Rico on September 2, 2015. The focus of the hearing was on whether the PRCZMP continues to meet the requirements for program approval as E:\FR\FM\13DEP1.SGM 13DEP1

Availability and Summary of Documents 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 considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 to amend Class E Airspace designated as an 
extension to a Class D surface area at Elmira/Corning Regional Airport, 
Elmira, NY. The ERINN Outer Marker has been decommissioned, requiring 
airspace reconfiguration for the safety and management of IFR 
operations at the airport. This action also proposes to eliminate the 
NOTAM information that reads, ``This Class E airspace area is effective 
during the specific dates and times established in advance by Notice to 
Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously 
published in the Airport/Facility Directory.'' From the regulatory text 
of the above airspace as it is not needed to supplement the existing 
part-time Class D airspace surrounding the airport. The geographic 
coordinates of the airport would be amended for Class D and Class E 
airspace to be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
Paragraphs 5000, 6002, and 6004, 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 E airspace 
designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

    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. 
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 proposed rule, when promulgated, will 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 would 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.
