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 
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 extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Capital Region International Airport, Lansing, MI, to 
support instrument flight rule operations.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (83 FR 16802; April 17, 2018) for Docket No. FAA-2018-0101 to 
amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
at Capital Region International Airport, Lansing, MI. 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 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 designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 modifies 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; removes the extension to the east of the airport 
associated with the ARTDA LOM; adds an extension within 2.0 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 adds an extension within 4.0 
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 is also updated from Capital City Airport 
to Capital Region International Airport, and the geographic coordinates 
of the airport are updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database. Additionally, an editorial change is made removing the name 
of the city associated with the airport in the airspace legal 
designation to comply with a recent change to FAA Order 7400.2L, 
Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters.

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 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 5-6.5.a. 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.
