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 controlled airspace at Batten International Airport, Racine, WI, and General Mitchell International Airport, Milwaukee, WI. History The FAA was notified that John H. Batten Airport, Racine, WI, has changed its name to Batten International Airport, Racine, WI. This is an administrative change updating the name in the legal description for the airport to match FAA databases. The geographic coordinates for General Mitchell International PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 11803 Airport, Milwaukee, WI, also are adjusted. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 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, 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 action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by updating the name of Batten International Airport (formerly John H. Batten Airport), Racine, WI, in the regulatory text of the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the Earth at Batten International Airport, Racine, WI. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of General Mitchell International Airport, Milwaukee, WI, to be in concert with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedures Act (5. U.S.C.) authorizes agencies to dispense with notice and comment procedure when the agency for ‘‘good cause’’ finds that these procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ This is an administrative change amending the description for Batten International Airport, and adjusts the geographic coordinates for General Mitchell International Airport, to be in concert with the FAA’s aeronautical database and does not affect the boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace; therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are 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 E:\FR\FM\27FER1.SGM 27FER1 11804 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 37 / Monday, February 27, 2017 / Rules and Regulations ‘‘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 controlled airspace at Batten International Airport, 
Racine, WI, and General Mitchell International Airport, Milwaukee, WI.

History

    The FAA was notified that John H. Batten Airport, Racine, WI, has 
changed its name to Batten International Airport, Racine, WI. This is 
an administrative change updating the name in the legal description for 
the airport to match FAA databases. The geographic coordinates for 
General Mitchell International Airport, Milwaukee, WI, also are 
adjusted.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 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, 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 action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by updating the name of Batten International Airport (formerly 
John H. Batten Airport), Racine, WI, in the regulatory text of the 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the 
surface of the Earth at Batten International Airport, Racine, WI. This 
action also updates the geographic coordinates of General Mitchell 
International Airport, Milwaukee, WI, to be in concert with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.
    Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedures Act (5. 
U.S.C.) authorizes agencies to dispense with notice and comment 
procedure when the agency for ``good cause'' finds that these 
procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest.'' This is an administrative change amending the description 
for Batten International Airport, and adjusts the geographic 
coordinates for General Mitchell International Airport, to be in 
concert with the FAA's aeronautical database and does not affect the 
boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace; therefore, 
notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are 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

[[Page 11804]]

``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.
