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 at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR, to ensure the safety and management of aircraft within the National Airspace System. History The FAA Aeronautical Information Services branch found the Class E surface area airspace at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR, as published in FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, requires NOTAM part-time status to avoid overlap with the part-time Class D surface area airspace at the same airport. The FAA inadvertently removed the NOTAM language from the regulatory text of the Class E surface area airspace. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 of FAA Order 7400.11A dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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. 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 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by adding the following language to the legal description of Class E surface area airspace at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR that reads, ‘‘This Class E airspace is effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement.’’. 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 E:\FR\FM\20JNR1.SGM 20JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 117 / Tuesday, June 20, 2017 / Rules and Regulations significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

History On March 06, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 12525) Docket FAA–2016–9333 a notice of proposed rulemaking to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Grayling Airport, Grayling, AK.

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 at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, 
OR, to ensure the safety and management of aircraft within the National 
Airspace System.

History

    The FAA Aeronautical Information Services branch found the Class E 
surface area airspace at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR, as 
published in FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting 
Points, requires NOTAM part-time status to avoid overlap with the part-
time Class D surface area airspace at the same airport. The FAA 
inadvertently removed the NOTAM language from the regulatory text of 
the Class E surface area airspace.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 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.

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 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document 
will be published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by adding the following language to the legal description of 
Class E surface area airspace at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR 
that reads, ``This Class E airspace is effective during the specific 
dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The 
effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in 
the Chart Supplement.''. 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

[[Page 27991]]

significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances 
exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.
