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 regulation is within the scope of that authority as it supports a change to restricted area R–4403A, Stennis Space Center, MS, to safely accommodate NASA test programs. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register for Docket No. FAA– 2017–1109 (83 FR 1319; January 11, 2018).

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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background As part of the Omnibus Crime Control Act of 1970, Congress enacted 18 U.S.C. 1752 (Temporary residence of the President) (‘‘Section 1752’’), making it unlawful to willfully and knowingly enter or remain in any building or grounds designated by the Secretary of the Treasury as a temporary residence of the President or the temporary offices of the President and his staff. Public Law 91–644, Title V, Sec. 18, 84 Stat. 1891– 92 (Jan. 2, 1971). Subsection (d) of Section 1752 further authorized the Secretary of the Treasury: (1) To designate by regulation the buildings and grounds which constitute the temporary residences of the President and the temporary offices of the President and his staff, and (2) to prescribe regulations governing ingress or egress to such buildings and grounds and to posted, cordoned off, or otherwise restricted areas where the President is or will be temporarily visiting. Department of Treasury regulations designating the temporary residence of the President and the temporary offices of the President and his staff and governing ingress and egress to those buildings and grounds are set forth in Chapter IV, part 408 of title 31 of the Code of Federal Regulations and consist of sections 408.1–408.3 (31 CFR 408.1– 408.3). Section 1752 has been amended several times since its enactment in 1971. For example, amendments in 1982 modified subsection (d) to include the authority to issue regulations concerning the residences of USSS protectees in addition to the President. But further modifications in 2006 have eliminated the need for implementing regulations and have removed provisions regarding the issuance of regulations. Need for Correction In 2006, the Secret Service Authorization and Technical Modification Act of 2005, Public Law 109–177, Title VI, Sec. 602, 120 Stat. 252 (Mar. 9, 2006), amended Section 1752 to eliminate any reference to regulations.

R-4403A, Stennis Space Center, MS, from ``Intermittent, 1000 to 0300 
local time, as activated by NOTAM at least 24 hours in advance,'' to 
``Intermittent by NOTAM at least 24 hours in advance.'' The National 
Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) requested the change to 
meet requirements of the Space Launch System (SLS) Core Stage test

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 
the 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 supports a change to restricted area R-4403A, Stennis 
Space Center, MS, to safely accommodate NASA test programs.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the 
Federal Register for Docket No. FAA-2017-1109 (83 FR 1319; January 11, 
2018). The NPRM proposed to amend the time of designation for 
restricted area R-4403A, Stennis Space Center,

[[Page 18939]]

MS, from ``Intermittent, 1000 to 0300 local time, as activated by NOTAM 
at least 24 hours in advance,'' to ``Intermittent by NOTAM at least 24 
hours in advance.'' Interested parties were invited to participate in 
this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. 
No comments were received.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 73 by changing the time of 
designation for restricted area R-4403A, Stennis Space Center, MS, from 
``Intermittent, 1000 to 0300 local time, as activated by NOTAM at least 
24 hours in advance,'' to ``Intermittent by NOTAM at least 24 hours in 
advance.''
    This change is required to provide the additional restricted area 
activation time needed to accommodate NASA's SLS Core Stage engine 
testing program. The current boundaries and designated altitude for R-
4403A remain unchanged. Additionally, this action does not affect 
restricted areas R-4403B, C, E, or F (Note: there is no ``D'' 
subdivision).

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. 
It, therefore: (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under 
Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under 
Department of Transportation (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 determined the modification of restricted area R-4403A, 
Stennis Space Center, MS, to be within the scope of the Navy and NASA's 
Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact 
(FONSI) for the Redesignation and Expansion of Restricted Airspace R-
4403 to Support Military Air-To-Ground Munitions Training and NASA 
Rocket Engine Testing At Stennis Space Center, Mississippi dated 
November 24, 2015; and the FAA's decision document adopting the 
airspace portion of the above cited EA titled ``Federal Aviation 
Administration, Adoption of the Environmental Assessment and FONSI/ROD 
for Redesignation and Expansion of Restricted Airspace R-4403, Stennis 
Space Center, Hancock and Pearl River County, MS, and St Tammany 
Parrish, LA, signed on March 22, 2016; and that no further 
environmental review is required.
