Amendment of Class E Airspace; Hanford, CA, 7363-7365 [2018-03409]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 35 / Wednesday, February 21, 2018 / Rules and Regulations Executive Order 13771 respectively, rounded to the nearest dollar. III. Justification for Final Rule The Inflation Adjustment Act provides that agencies shall annually adjust civil monetary penalties for inflation notwithstanding Section 553 of the APA. Additionally, the Inflation Adjustment Act provides a nondiscretionary cost-of-living formula for annual adjustment of the civil monetary penalties. For these reasons, the requirements in sections 553(b), (c), and (d) of the APA, relating to notice and comment and requiring that a rule be effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register, are inapplicable. IV. Justification for Immediate Effective Date Section 553(d) requires agencies to publish their rules at least 30 days before their effective dates, except if the agency finds for good cause that the delay is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. By expressly exempting this rule from section 553, the 2015 Inflation Adjustment Improvements Act has provided SBA with the good cause justification for this rule to become effective on the date it is published in the Federal Register. Compliance With Executive Orders 12866, 12988, 13132, 13771, and the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Ch. 35) and the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612) Executive Order 12866 The Office of Management and Budget has determined that this final rule is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. This is also not a major rule under the Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 800. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES Executive Order 12988 This action meets applicable standards set forth in Sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. The action does not have retroactive or preemptive effect. Executive Order 13132 For the purpose of Executive Order 13132, SBA has determined that the rule will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, this final rule has no federalism implications warranting preparation of a federalism assessment. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:21 Feb 20, 2018 Jkt 244001 § 107.665 This rule is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because this rule is not significant under Executive Order 12866. ■ Paperwork Reduction Act 7363 ■ SBA has determined that this rule does not impose additional reporting or recordkeeping requirements. Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) The RFA requires agencies to consider the effect of their regulatory actions on small entities, including small nonprofit businesses, and small local governments. Pursuant to the RFA, when an agency issues a rule the agency must prepare an analysis that describes whether the impact of the rule will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of such small entities. However, the RFA requires such analysis only where notice and comment rulemaking is required. As stated above, SBA has express statutory authority to issue this rule without regard to the notice and comment requirement of the Administrative Procedure Act. Since notice and comment is not required before this rule is issued, SBA is not required to prepare a regulatory analysis. [Amended] 2. In § 107.665, remove ‘‘$254’’ and add in its place ‘‘$259’’.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES SUMMARY: 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:21 Feb 20, 2018 Jkt 244001 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 Hanford Municipal Airport, Hanford, CA, to support instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register for Docket No. FAA– 2017–0856 (82 FR 50594; November 1, 2017) proposing to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Hanford Municipal Airport, Hanford, CA. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. The FAA inadvertently omitted in the NPRM that the geographic coordinates of the airport are adjusted and makes the notation in the rule. Except for this notation, this rule is the same as published in the NPRM. 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 designation 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 The FAA is amending title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Hanford Municipal Airport, Hanford, CA, to accommodate area navigation (RNAV) procedures at the airport. The Class E airspace area is modified to within 1.8 miles southwest and 3.2 miles northeast of the 332° bearing from the airport extending to 6.2 miles northwest of the airport (from within a 2.6-mile radius), and within 1.8 miles southwest and 3.2 miles northeast (from within 1.5 miles each side) of the 152° bearing from the airport extending to 6.2 PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 miles southeast of the airport (from 5 miles southeast), and within 1.3 miles each side of the 067° bearing from the airport (from 1.8 miles north and 2.3 miles south of the Visalia VOR/DME) extending to 7.7 miles northeast of the airport. Also, this action amends the geographic coordinates for the airport, removes the reference to the Visalia VOR/DME in the legal description as the FAA transitions from ground-based to satellite-based navigation; and removes Blair Airport from the legal description as the airport no longer exists. 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, will 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.

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 Hanford Municipal Airport, Hanford, 
CA, to support instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the 
Federal Register for Docket No. FAA-2017-0856 (82 FR 50594; November 1, 
2017) proposing to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 
feet above the surface at Hanford Municipal Airport, Hanford, CA. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No 
comments were received.
    The FAA inadvertently omitted in the NPRM that the geographic 
coordinates of the airport are adjusted and makes the notation in the 
rule. Except for this notation, this rule is the same as published in 
the NPRM.
    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 designation 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

    The FAA is amending title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Hanford Municipal Airport, Hanford, CA, to 
accommodate area navigation (RNAV) procedures at the airport. The Class 
E airspace area is modified to within 1.8 miles southwest and 3.2 miles 
northeast of the 332[deg] bearing from the airport extending to 6.2 
miles northwest of the airport (from within a 2.6-mile radius), and 
within 1.8 miles southwest and 3.2 miles northeast (from within 1.5 
miles each side) of the 152[deg] bearing from the airport extending to 
6.2 miles southeast of the airport (from 5 miles southeast), and within 
1.3 miles each side of the 067[deg] bearing from the airport (from 1.8 
miles north and 2.3 miles south of the Visalia VOR/DME) extending to 
7.7 miles northeast of the airport.
    Also, this action amends the geographic coordinates for the 
airport, removes the reference to the Visalia VOR/DME in the legal 
description as the FAA transitions from ground-based to satellite-based 
navigation; and removes Blair Airport from the legal description as the 
airport no longer exists.

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, will 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.
