This proposal would add an extension within 4 miles each side of the 359° bearing from the airport from the 6.6-mile radius to 11.6 miles north of the airport. The geographic coordinates of the airport would also be updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database, and the name of the city associated with the airport in the airspace description would be removed to comply with a change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters. This action is necessary due to an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Duncan VOR as part of the VOR MON Program and cancellation of the associated instrument procedures. 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.

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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11B, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2017, and effective 
September 15, 2017. FAA Order

[[Page 10645]]

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 Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending the Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.6-mile radius 
(decreased from a 6.7-mile radius) at Halliburton Field, Duncan, OK, 
and removing the extension to the north of the airport associated with 
the Halliburton Field Localizer. This proposal would add an extension 
within 4 miles each side of the 359[deg] bearing from the airport from 
the 6.6-mile radius to 11.6 miles north of the airport. The geographic 
coordinates of the airport would also be updated to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database, and the name of the city associated with 
the airport in the airspace description would be removed to comply with 
a change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace 
Matters.
    This action is necessary due to an airspace review caused by the 
decommissioning of the Duncan VOR as part of the VOR MON Program and 
cancellation of the associated instrument procedures.
    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.

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.
