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 would amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Holmes County Airport, Millersburg, OH and Richard Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH to support IFR operations at these airports. History The FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (82 FR 55063; November 20, 2017) for Docket No. FAA–2017–0342 to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Holmes County Airport, Millersburg, OH. and Richard Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH. 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, an edit was made removing the city in the airspace designation for Holmes County PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Airport to comply with a recent change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11B, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 2017. FAA Order 7400.11B is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11B 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 modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from a 6.7-mile radius) at Holmes County Airport, Millersburg, OH. The segments within 2.7 miles either side of the 085° bearing from the airport extending from the 6.7-mile radius to 10.5 miles east of the airport and within 1.8 miles either side of the 236° bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.7-mile radius to 8 miles southwest of the airport, would be removed. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of Holmes County Airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Additionally, the city is removed from the airport name in the airspace description to comply with a recent change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters, dated October 12, 2017. This action also modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.5-mile radius (increased from a 6.3-mile radius) at Richard Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH, with a segment within 2.0 miles (reduced from 4- miles) either side of the 037° bearing from the airport extending from the 6.5-mile radius to 8.6 miles (reduced from 10- miles) northeast of the airport.

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 5–6.5.a.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 15, 2017, BEA published a notice of proposed rulemaking that set forth the revised reporting criteria for the BE–120 Benchmark Survey of Transactions in Selected Services and Intellectual Property with Foreign Persons (82 FR 52863). No comments on the proposed rule were received. This final rule amends 15 CFR part 801 to set forth the reporting requirements for the BE–120 Benchmark Survey of Transactions in Selected Services and Intellectual Property with Foreign Persons. BEA typically conducts the BE–120 survey once every five years under the authority of the International Investment and Trade in Services Surveys Act (22 U.S.C. 3101–3108). In 2012, BEA established regulatory guidelines for collecting data on international trade in services and direct investment (77 FR 24373; April 24, 2012). This final rule, unlike most annual or quarterly BEA surveys conducted pursuant to the Act, amends those regulations to require a response from persons subject to the reporting requirements of the BE–120, whether or not they are contacted by BEA. The benchmark survey covers the universe of selected services and intellectual property transactions with foreign persons and is BEA’s most detailed survey of such transactions. In nonbenchmark years, the universe estimates covering these transactions are derived from the sample data reported on BEA’s BE–125 Quarterly Survey of Transactions in Selected Services and Intellectual Property with Foreign Persons.

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 would amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Holmes County Airport, Millersburg, OH and Richard 
Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH to support IFR operations at these 
airports.

History

    The FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (82 FR 55063; November 20, 2017) for Docket No. FAA-2017-
0342 to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Holmes County Airport, Millersburg, OH. and Richard 
Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH. 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, an edit was made removing the city in 
the airspace designation for Holmes County Airport to comply with a 
recent change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace 
Matters.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11B, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 
2017, 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 7400.11B, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 
2017. FAA Order 7400.11B is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11B 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 modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from a 6.7-mile radius) 
at Holmes County Airport, Millersburg, OH. The segments within 2.7 
miles either side of the 085[deg] bearing from the airport extending 
from the 6.7-mile radius to 10.5 miles east of the airport and within 
1.8 miles either side of the 236[deg] bearing from the airport, 
extending from the 6.7-mile radius to 8 miles southwest of the airport, 
would be removed. This action also updates the geographic coordinates 
of Holmes County Airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database.
    Additionally, the city is removed from the airport name in the 
airspace description to comply with a recent change to FAA Order 
7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters, dated October 12, 
2017.
    This action also modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 
700 feet above the surface within a 6.5-mile radius (increased from a 
6.3-mile radius) at Richard Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH, with a 
segment within 2.0 miles (reduced from 4- miles) either side of the 
037[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the 6.5-mile radius to 
8.6 miles (reduced from 10- miles) northeast of the airport. This 
action also updates the geographic coordinates of

Richard Downing Airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database.
    This action enhances the safety and management of standard 
instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at these airports.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11B, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 
2017, 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 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.
