SUMMARY: This action amends the legal descriptions for Class E surface 
airspace and Class E airspace upward from 700 feet above the surface to 
correct the airport name for Cedar City Regional Airport (formerly 
Cedar City Municipal Airport), Cedar City, UT, and amends the airport 
reference point (ARP) geographic coordinates to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database. This action also changes the name of the VHF 
Omnidirectional Range Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) noted in 
the Class E surface area airspace legal description to the Enoch VOR/
DME (formerly Cedar City VOR/DME). These changes do not affect the 
charted boundaries or operating requirements of the airspace.

DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, March 2, 2017. The Director of the Federal 
Register approves this incorporation by reference action under title 1, 
Code of Federal Regulations, part 51, subject to the annual revision of

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 descriptions at Cedar City Regional 
Airport, Cedar City, UT.

History

    The FAA identified that Cedar City Regional Airport and the 
geographic coordinates of the airport's ARP listed in the Class E 
airspace legal descriptions above are not coincidental with the FAA's 
aeronautical database. Also, in accordance with FAA policy, the FAA has 
changed the Cedar City VOR/DME name to the Enoch VOR/DME, to avoid any 
potential confusion resulting from an off-airport navigation aid with 
the same name as the associated airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 
6005,

[[Page 95432]]

respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11A dated August 3, 2016, and effective 
September 15, 2016, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 
71.1. The Class E airspace designations 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 dated August 3, 2016, and 
effective September 15, 2016, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR part 71.1. 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 action amends the legal descriptions for Class E surface area 
airspace and Class E airspace upward from 700 feet above the surface to 
correct the airport name to Cedar City Regional Airport, Cedar City, 
UT, (formerly Cedar City Municipal Airport), and geographic coordinates 
from (lat. 37[deg]42'06'' N., long. 113[deg]05'53'' W.) to (lat. 
37[deg]42'03'' N., long. 113[deg]05'56'' W.) to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database. This action also corrects the navigation aid 
noted in the Class E surface area airspace legal description from the 
Cedar City VOR/DME to the Enoch VOR/DME. This is an administrative 
change and does not affect the boundaries, altitudes, or operating 
requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure 
under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary.

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 5-6.5a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exists that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
