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 designation 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.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve revisions to the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD or District) portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concern the District’s demonstration regarding Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) requirements for the 2008 8-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) in the South Coast Air Basin and Coachella Valley ozone nonattainment areas. The EPA had previously proposed to partially approve and partially disapprove SCAQMD’s RACT SIP demonstration. However, since publication of the proposed rule, SCAQMD has addressed the identified deficiency that was the pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:02 Jun 14, 2017 Jkt 241001 basis for the proposed partial disapproval by completing additional analysis and by submitting the analysis to the EPA as a supplement to the RACT demonstration. Because the supplemental analysis adequately addresses the deficiency, the EPA is withdrawing the previous proposed action and is now proposing full approval of SCAQMD’s RACT SIP demonstration for the 2008 ozone NAAQS, as recently supplemented. The action proposed herein is based on a public draft version of the SCAQMD RACT supplement, and the EPA will not take final action until submittal of the final version of the SCAQMD RACT supplement as a revision of the California SIP.

On June 6, 2014, the SCAQMD adopted the ‘‘2016 AQMP) Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) Demonstration’’ (‘‘2016 AQMP RACT SIP’’), and on July 18, 2014, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) submitted it to the EPA for approval as a revision to the California SIP. On January 18, 2015, the submittal of the 2016 AQMP RACT SIP was deemed complete by operation of law. On May 22, 2017, CARB submitted the District’s public draft version of the ‘‘Supplemental RACM/RACT Analysis for the NOX RECLAIM Program’’ (‘‘2017 RACT Supplement’’) along with a request for parallel processing.1 The District prepared the 2017 RACT Supplement to address a deficiency that the EPA had identified in the 2016 AQMP RACT SIP and that was the basis for the EPA’s proposed partial disapproval of that submittal published on November 3, 2016 (81 FR 76547). The 2017 RACT Supplement includes additional emissions analysis, two negative declarations, and certain conditions from permits for two specific stationary sources located in Coachella Valley. As noted in footnote 1 of this document, under our parallel processing procedure, the EPA proposes action on a public draft version of a SIP revision but will take final action only after the final version is adopted and submitted to the EPA for approval. In this instance, we are proposing action based on the public draft version of the 2017 RACT Supplement submitted by CARB on May 22, 2017 and will not take final action until the final version of the 2017 RACT 1 Under the EPA’s ‘‘parallel processing’’ procedure, the EPA proposes rulemaking action concurrently with the state’s proposed rulemaking. If the state’s proposed rule is changed, the EPA will evaluate that subsequent change and may publish another notice of proposed rulemaking. If no significant change is made, the EPA will publish a final rulemaking on the rule after responding to any submitted comments. Final rulemaking action by the EPA will occur only after the rule has been fully adopted by California and submitted formally to the EPA for incorporation into the SIP.

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 at Bradley 
International Airport, Windsor Locks, CT, by removing the NOTAM part-
time status of the Class E airspace designated as an extension to a 
Class C surface area. This change would enhance the safety and 
management of IFR operations at the airport. This proposal would also 
update the geographic coordinates of the airport for Class E airspace 
designated as an extension to a Class C surface area, and for Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface 
within a 10.9-mile radius of Bradley International Airport to coincide 
with the FAAs aeronautical database.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6003, and 
6005, 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 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.
