Download as PDF amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with PROPOSALS1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 108 / Tuesday, June 5, 2018 / Proposed Rules (3) Definitions: For purposes of paragraphs (b)(2)(i) and (ii) of this section— (i) A breach determination is administratively final when the time to file an appeal with the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) has expired or when the appeal is dismissed or rejected. (ii) An invoice is past due if it is delinquent, meaning either that it has not been paid or disputed in writing within 30 days of issuance of the invoice; or, if it is a debt upon which the surety has submitted a written dispute within 30 days of issuance of the invoice, ICE has issued a written explanation to the surety of the agency’s determination that the debt is valid, and the debt has not been paid within 30 days of issuance of such written explanation that the debt is valid. (4) When one or more of the for cause standards provided in paragraph (b)(2) of this section applies to a Treasurycertified surety, ICE may, in its discretion, initiate the process to notify the surety that it will decline future bonds. To initiate this process, ICE will issue written notice to the surety stating ICE’s intention to decline bonds underwritten by the surety and the reasons for the proposed nonacceptance of the bonds. This notice will inform the surety of its opportunity to rebut the stated reasons set forth in the notice, and its opportunity to cure the stated reasons, i.e., deficient performance. (5) The Treasury-certified surety must send any response to ICE’s notice in writing to the office that sent the notice. The surety’s response must be received by the designated office on or before the 30th calendar day following the date the notice was issued. If the surety or agent fails to submit a timely response, the surety will have waived the right to respond, and ICE will decline any future bonds submitted for approval that are underwritten by the surety. (6) After considering any timely response submitted by the Treasurycertified surety to the written notice issued by ICE, ICE will issue a written determination stating whether future bonds issued by the surety will be accepted or declined. This written determination constitutes final agency action. If the written determination concludes that future bonds will be declined from the surety, ICE will decline any future bonds submitted for approval that are underwritten by the surety. * * * * * (f) Appeals of breached bonds issued by Treasury-certified sureties. (1) VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Jun 04, 2018 Jkt 244001 Consistent with section 10(c) of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 704, the AAO’s decision on appeal of a breach determination constitutes final agency action. The initial breach determination remains inoperative during the administrative appeal period and while an administrative appeal is pending. Dismissal of an appeal is effective upon the date of the AAO decision. Only the granting of a motion to reopen or reconsider makes the decision no longer final. (2) The failure by a Treasury-certified surety or its bonding agent to exhaust administrative appellate review before the AAO, or the lapse of time to file an appeal to the AAO without filing an appeal to the AAO, constitutes waiver and forfeiture of all claims, defenses, and arguments involving the bond breach determination. A Treasurycertified surety’s or its agent’s failure to move to reconsider or to reopen a breach decision does not constitute failure to exhaust administrative remedies. (3) A Treasury-certified surety or its bonding agent must raise all issues and present all facts relied upon in the appeal to the AAO. A Treasury-certified surety’s or its agent’s failure to timely raise any claim, defense, or argument before the AAO in support of reversal or remand of a breach decision waives and forfeits that claim, defense, or argument. (4) If a Treasury-certified surety or its bonding agent does not timely file an appeal with the AAO upon receipt of a breach notice, a claim in favor of ICE is created on the bond breach determination, and ICE may seek to collect the amount due on the breached bond.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 25967 This action proposes to amend Class D airspace, Class E surface airspace, Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area, and Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at Williamsport Regional Airport (formerly Williamsport-Lycoming County Airport), Williamsport, PA. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of Picture Rocks non-directional radio beacon (NDB), and cancellation of the NDB approaches. This action also removes the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) parttime language from the legal description of the Class E airspace area designated as an extension at this airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport. This action also would recognize the airport’s name change and update the geographic coordinates of the airport and Williamsport Hospital, and would replace the outdated term Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the legal descriptions of associated Class D and E airspace.

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 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 considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by: Amending Class D airspace and Class E surface area airspace at Williamsport, PA, by recognizing the airport name change from Williamsport-Lycoming County Airport to Williamsport Regional Airport, and adjusting the geographic coordinates of the airport to be in concert with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Also, this action would make an editorial change to the legal descriptions of the airspace areas above replacing ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ with ‘‘Chart Supplement’’; PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Amending Class E airspace extending upward from the surface at Williamsport Regional Airport by removing the NOTAM part-time language from the legal description, and adjusting the geographic coordinates and noting the airport name change; Amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at Williamsport Regional Airport to within a 12.6-mile radius of the airport, due to the decommissioning of the Picture Rocks NDB, and cancellation of the NDB approach. Also, the geographic coordinates of the airport (as well as the airport name change) and the Williamsport Hospital point in space coordinates would be adjusted to be in concert with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004, 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 71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 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 proposed 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 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.

Proposed Amendment of Class D Airspace and Class E Airspace; 
Williamsport, PA

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend Class D airspace, Class E 
surface airspace, Class E airspace designated as an extension to a 
Class D surface area, and Class E airspace area extending upward from 
700 feet or more above the surface at Williamsport Regional Airport 
(formerly Williamsport-Lycoming County Airport), Williamsport, PA. 
Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of 
Picture Rocks non-directional radio beacon (NDB), and cancellation of 
the NDB approaches. This action also removes the Notice to Airmen 
(NOTAM) part-time language from the legal description of the Class E 
airspace area designated as an extension at this airport. Controlled 
airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument 
flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport. This action also would 
recognize the airport's name change and update the geographic 
coordinates of the airport and Williamsport Hospital, and would replace 
the outdated term Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart 
Supplement in the legal descriptions of associated Class D and E 
airspace.

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 
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 considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by:
    Amending Class D airspace and Class E surface area airspace at 
Williamsport, PA, by recognizing the airport name change from 
Williamsport-Lycoming County Airport to Williamsport Regional Airport, 
and adjusting the geographic coordinates of the airport to be in 
concert with the FAA's aeronautical database. Also, this action would 
make an editorial change to the legal descriptions of the airspace 
areas above replacing ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with ``Chart 
Supplement'';
    Amending Class E airspace extending upward from the surface at 
Williamsport Regional Airport by removing the NOTAM part-time language 
from the legal description, and adjusting the geographic coordinates 
and noting the airport name change;
    Amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more 
above the surface at Williamsport Regional Airport to within a 12.6-
mile radius of the airport, due to the decommissioning of the Picture 
Rocks NDB, and cancellation of the NDB approach. Also, the geographic 
coordinates of the airport (as well as the airport name change) and the 
Williamsport Hospital point in space coordinates would be adjusted to 
be in concert with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
Paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004, 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 71.1. The Class D and E airspace 
designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 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 proposed 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.
