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 Massena International-Richards Field 
Airport., Massena, NY, to support IFR operations at the airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register for Docket No. FAA-2017-0953 (82 FR 57888, December 8, 2017), 
proposing to amend Class E surface airspace and Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at Massena 
International-Richards Field Airport., Massena, NY.
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No 
comments were received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 6002 and 
6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11B dated August 3, 2017, and 
effective September 15, 2017, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR part 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 proposes to amend 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

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 action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by amending Class E surface airspace and Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Massena 
International-Richards Field Airport, Massena, NY. The segment within 
1.8 miles each side of the Massena VORTAC 286[deg] radial extending 
from the 4-mile radius to the VORTAC is removed in Class E surface 
airspace; and the segment within 2.7 miles each side of the Massena 
VORTAC 106[deg] radial extending from the 7.4-mile radius to 7 miles 
east of the VORTAC is removed in Class E airspace extending upward from 
700 feet above the surface, due to the decommissioning of the Massena 
VORTAC, and cancelation of associated approaches. This action enhances 
the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.
    The geographic coordinates of the airport are adjusted to coincide 
with the FAA's aeronautical database

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. 
Therefore, this regulation: (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 significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
