The airspace would be modified from the 6.5-mile radius of the airport to 7.8 miles west and 2 miles east of the 163° (from 173°) bearing from the airport to 16 miles (from 12 miles) south of the airport to contain the NDB–A procedure turn, and a segment would be added from the 6.5-mile radius of the airport extending to 15.1 miles southeast of the airport to support a new RNAV GPS RWY 29 instrument approach procedure for IFR operations at the airport. The Class E airspace area extending upward from 1,200 feet would be removed as there is sufficient 1,200 foot airspace provided by St. George Class E airspace extending from 700 feet above the surface and Grand Canyon Class E en route airspace. Also, this action would update the geographic coordinates of the airport to lat. 36°57′36″ N., long. 113°00′50″ W. (from lat. 36°57′08″ N., long. 113°00′59″ W.), to match the FAA’s current aeronautical database. 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 71.1. The 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.

Public Law § Section PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 U.S.C. 19331 United States Code II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis On November 16, 2016, the Coast Guard received an Application for Marine Event for the Tough Cup event to be held on the South Branch of the Chicago River and the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal between the South Pulaski Road Bridge and the South Halsted Street Bridge. This event involves high performance rowing shells and sculls that range in size from 27 feet to 65 feet in length and oars out to 25 feet in width to race on a course along the South Branch of the Chicago River and the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal. The Captain of the Port Lake Michigan has determined that the potential hazards associated with this event would be a safety concern for participants as well as recreational and commercial traffic in or around the course where the event will take place. This purpose of the rulemaking is to ensure the safety of vessels, persons and the navigable waters immediately before, during, and immediately after the scheduled event. The specific hazards include collisions among event participants, recreational traffic, and commercial traffic that may cause injury or marine casualties. The legal basis for this proposed rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish safety zones: 33 U.S.C. 1231; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 160.5; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Captain of the Port Lake Michigan proposes to establish a safety zone on all waters of the South Branch of the Chicago River and the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal between the South Pulaski Road Bridge and the South Halsted Street Bridge. This safety zone will be enforced from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on September 30, 2017. The safety zone enforcement times are intended to ensure the safety of persons and vessels immediately before, during and immediately after the event. The Captain of the Port Lake Michigan has determined that the safety zone in this proposed rule is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and people during this event. The safety zone in this proposed rule will be enforced for seven hours on September 30, 2017. The Captain of the Port Lake Michigan will notify the public that the zone in this proposal will be enforced by all appropriate means to the affected segments of the public, including publication in the Federal Register, as practicable, in accordance with 33 CFR E:\FR\FM\27APP1.SGM 27APP1
