Adoption of the Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 71 as follows: jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class C surface area, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Atlantic City International Airport, Atlantic City, NJ, by removing Atlantic City Municipal/Bader Field from the airspace description as the airport has closed, no longer requiring controlled airspace. 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. 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.

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 D and Class E airspace at Elmira/ Corning Regional Airport, Elmira, NY. jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES History On December 13, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class D and Class E airspace at Elmira, NY.

Administrative Procedure Act I. Background The Act, as amended (set out in a note following 28 U.S.C. 2461), requires Federal agencies to adjust their civil monetary penalty (CMP) rates through an interim final rulemaking to take effect no later than August 1, 2016, and to make annual inflation adjustments not later than January 15 of every year thereafter with the guidance that OMB provides us by December 15 of each calendar year, as required by section 7 of the Act, to calculate the maximum CMP rates for the following calendar year. On February 24, 2016, OMB issued guidance on calculating the initial catch-up and subsequent annual CMP inflation adjustments. See February 24, 2016, Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies from Shaun Donovan, Director, OMB, re: Implementation of the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (OMB Memorandum M–16–06). That memorandum included a table (Table A) showing CMP inflation-adjustment multipliers by calendar year of CMP establishment from 1914 to 2015. On June 9, 2016, ONRR published its interim final rule required by the Act, as amended, adjusting for inflation from 1983 to 2016. On December 16, 2016, OMB issued additional guidance on the annual adjustment of CMPs for 2017. See December 16, 2016, Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies from OMB Director Shaun Donovan re: Implementation of the 2017 annual adjustment pursuant to the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (OMB Memorandum M–17–11). That memorandum informed agencies that the inflation-adjustment multiplier for 2017 is 1.01636. PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 II. Calculation of Adjustments ONRR assesses CMPs under section 109 of the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act of 1982 (FOGRMA), codified as amended at 30 U.S.C. 1719. In accordance with FOGRMA, we calculate and assess CMPs per violation, at the applicable rate, for each day such violation continues. Since we had not adjusted the maximum CMP rates for inflation since their establishment in 1983, we calculated the new maximum CMP rates for 2016 using the inflation-adjustment multiplier for CMPs established in 1983, as set out in Table A in OMB Memorandum M–16–06. That multiplier was 2.35483. On June 9, 2016, we published an interim final rule in the Federal Register (81 FR 37153) establishing the maximum CMP rates with the initial catch-up adjustments. Those maximum CMP rates were effective on July 11, 2016. However, the interim final rule requested public comments until August 8, 2016. ONRR received no comments and, therefore, is finalizing that rule. OMB Memorandum M–17–11 authorizes agencies to finalize their 2016 initial ‘‘catch-up’’ adjustment interim final rule in the same rulemaking that establishes their 2017 annual adjustments. In accordance with sections 4 and 5 of the Act, as amended, the annual CMP Inflation Adjustment calculation for 2017 is based on the percent change in the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (CPI–U) between October 2015 and October 2016. To calculate the maximum CMP rates for 2017, we are using the inflation-adjustment multiplier that OMB provided in its Memorandum M–17–11. That multiplier is 1.01636. In accordance with section 5(a) of the Act, as amended, the new maximum CMP rates will be rounded to the nearest dollar. For example, the maximum CMP rate under 30 U.S.C. 1719(a) in 2016 is $1,177 per violation for each day such violation continues; the 2017 CMP inflation-adjustment multiplier is 1.01636; $1,177 × 1.01636 = $1,196.2557, which rounds down to $1,196. Therefore, the new maximum CMP rate for this violation is $1,196 for each day such violation continues. It is important to note that, by themselves, the increases in maximum CMP rates contained in this final rule do not determine the amount of the CMP that we will assess for a particular violation; as authorized by FOGRMA and the implementing regulations codified at 30 CFR part 1241, we calculate each CMP on a case-by-case basis. In accordance with section 6 of the Act, as amended, the new maximum E:\FR\FM\24APR1.SGM 24APR1

Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Elmira, NY

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action amends Class D and E airspace at Elmira, NY, as 
the ERINN Outer Marker (OM) has been decommissioned requiring airspace 
reconfiguration at Elmira/Corning Regional Airport. This action 
enhances the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules 
(IFR) operations at the airport. This action also updates the 
geographic coordinates of the airport, and eliminates the Notice to 
Airmen (NOTAM) part-time status of the Class E airspace designated as 
an extension to a Class D surface area. Also, the FAA found the Class E 
airspace designated as an extension to a class D surface area 
description was inaccurate. This action corrects the error.

DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, June 22, 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 
FAA Order 7400.11 and publication of conforming amendments.

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 D and Class E airspace at Elmira/Corning Regional 
Airport, Elmira, NY.

History

    On December 13, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class D and Class E 
airspace at Elmira, NY. (81 FR 89885) Docket No. FAA-2015-8128. This 
proposed change is necessary as the ERINN Outer Marker (OM) has been 
decommissioned requiring airspace reconfiguration at Elmira/Corning 
Regional Airport. Interested parties were invited to participate in 
this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal 
to the FAA. No comments were received.
    Subsequent to publication, the regulatory text for the Class E 
airspace designated as an extension was found to have some inaccuracies 
and is rewritten for clarity.
    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 part 71.1. The Class D and 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 amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and 
Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area 
at Elmira/Corning Regional Airport, Elmira, NY. This action amends the 
geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database, and eliminates the NOTAM information from the 
regulatory text of the Class E airspace designated as an extension to 
Class D that reads, ``This Class E airspace area is effective during 
the specific dates and time established in advance by Notice to Airmen. 
The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published 
in the Airport/Facility Directory.'' This action also corrects some 
inaccuracies in the segment dimensions northeast, east, and southwest 
of the airport in the description of Class E airspace designated as an 
extension to a Class D surface.

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. 
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 exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
