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 6.8-mile radius 
(increased from a 6.7-mile radius) at Capital Region International 
Airport (formerly Capital City Airport), Lansing, MI; removing the 
extension to the east of the airport associated with the ARTDA LOM; 
adding an extension within 2 miles each side of the 091[deg] bearing 
from the airport from the 6.8-mile radius to 10.4 mile east of the 
airport; and adding an extension within 4 miles each side of the 
233[deg] from the airport from the 6.8-mile radius to 10.5 miles 
southwest of the airport.
    The name of the airport would also be updated from Capital City 
Airport to Capital Region International Airport, and the geographic 
coordinates of the airport would be updated to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database. Additionally, an editorial change would be made 
removing the name of the city associated with the airport in the legal 
designation to comply with a recent change to FAA Order 7400.2L, 
Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters.
    This action is necessary as the result of airspace review do to the 
decommissioning of the Lansing VOR as part of the VOR MON Program.
    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

[[Page 16804]]

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.
