Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018. FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11C lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by: Amending Class D airspace to within a 3.9-mile radius (reduced from a 4.4mile radius) of Lawrence J. Timmerman VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:23 Oct 12, 2018 Jkt 247001 Airport, Milwaukee, WI; and updating the airspace designation from ‘‘Milwaukee, Lawrence J. Timmerman Airport, WI’’ to ‘‘Milwaukee, WI’’, removing the city from the airport name, and making an editorial change replacing ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ with ‘‘Chart Supplement’’ to comply with FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; and Amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from an 8.9-mile radius) of Lawrence J. Timmerman Airport, Milwaukee, WI; adding an extension within 2 miles each side of the 218° bearing from Lawrence J. Timmerman Airport extending from the 6.4-mile radius to 11.7 miles southwest of the airport; adding an extension within 9 miles west and 6 miles east of the 328° bearing from the Lawrence J. Timmerman: RWY 15L– LOC extending from the 6.4-mile radius to 10 miles northwest of the airport. This action is necessary due to an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Timmerman VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of the VOR MON Program. Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and 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 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. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018, and effective 
September 15, 2018. FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11C lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by:
    Amending Class D airspace to within a 3.9-mile radius (reduced from 
a 4.4-mile radius) of Lawrence J. Timmerman Airport, Milwaukee, WI; and 
updating the airspace designation from ``Milwaukee, Lawrence J. 
Timmerman Airport, WI'' to ``Milwaukee, WI'', removing the city from 
the airport name, and making an editorial change replacing ``Airport/
Facility Directory'' with ``Chart Supplement'' to comply with FAA Order 
7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; and
    Amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface to within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from an 8.9-mile radius) 
of Lawrence J. Timmerman Airport, Milwaukee, WI; adding an extension 
within 2 miles each side of the 218[deg] bearing from Lawrence J. 
Timmerman Airport extending from the 6.4-mile radius to 11.7 miles 
southwest of the airport; adding an extension within 9 miles west and 6 
miles east of the 328[deg] bearing from the Lawrence J. Timmerman: RWY 
15L-LOC extending from the 6.4-mile radius to 10 miles northwest of the 
airport.
    This action is necessary due to an airspace review caused by the 
decommissioning of the Timmerman VOR, which provided navigation 
information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of 
the VOR MON Program.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 
and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, 
and effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 
14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and 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 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.
