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 proposed 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 establishes Class E airspace at Leitchfield-Grayson County Airport, Leitchfield, KY, to support IFR operations in standard instrument approach procedures at this airport. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (83 FR 49506, October 2, 2018) for Docket No. FAA–2018–0485 to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Leitchfield-Grayson County Airport, Leitchfield, KY. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One comment in support of the proposal was received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11C dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference Adoption of the Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR part 71 as follows: This document amends 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 Rule This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.3-mile radius of LeitchfieldGrayson County Airport, Leitchfield, KY, providing the controlled airspace required to support the new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at this airport. 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 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 5–6.5a. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Background The purpose of Amendment 20 is to reduce latent (unused) effort in the longfin squid fishery and adjust the management of the fishery during Trimester II to avoid overharvesting the longfin squid resource and harming squid egg masses. The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council is concerned that unused longfin squid/ butterfish moratorium permits could be activated. This could lead to excessive fishing effort, which could lead to premature fishery closures and reduced access to available longfin squid quota by vessels with a history of higher landings in recent years. Excessive effort may also increase the bycatch and discards of both longfin squid and nontarget species. The measures adopted by the Council are intended to help prevent excessive catch during Trimester II, a race to fish, frequent and disruptive fishery closures, and reduced fishing opportunities for vessels that are more recently dependent upon longfin squid. Additional information on the mackerel, squid, and butterfish fisheries can be found online at http://www.mafmc.org/ msb/ and https://www.greateratlantic. fisheries.noaa.gov/sustainable/species/ msb/index.html. On June 7, 2017, the Council adopted final measures for Amendment 20, submitting the draft amendment and EA to NMFS for preliminary review on June 6, 2018. NMFS published a Notice of Availability (NOA) in the Federal Register on July 27, 2018 (83 FR 35602), informing the public that the Council had submitted this amendment to the Secretary of Commerce for review and approval. NMFS published a proposed rule that included implementing regulations and corrections to existing regulations on August 31, 2018 (83 FR 44548).

[Docket No. 31228; Amdt. No. 543]


IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required 
IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for 
certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a 
minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This 
regulatory action is needed because of changes

[[Page 64254]]

occurring in the National Airspace System. These changes are designed 
to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace 
under instrument conditions in the affected areas.

DATES: Effective Date: 0901 UTC, January 3, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas J. Nichols, Flight Procedures 
and Airspace Group, Flight Technologies and Procedures Division, Flight 
Standards Service, Federal Aviation Administration. Mailing Address: 
FAA Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, Flight Procedures and Airspace 
Group, 6500 South MacArthur Blvd., Registry Bldg 29 Room 104, Oklahoma 
City, OK 73125. Telephone: (405) 954-4164.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This amendment to part 95 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 95) amends, suspends, or revokes IFR 
altitudes governing the operation of all aircraft in flight over a 
specified route or any portion of that route, as well as the changeover 
points (COPs) for Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes as 
prescribed in part 95.

The Rule

    The specified IFR altitudes, when used in conjunction with the 
prescribed changeover points for those routes, ensure navigation aid 
coverage that is adequate for safe flight operations and free of 
frequency interference. The reasons and circumstances that create the 
need for this amendment involve matters of flight safety and 
operational efficiency in the National Airspace System, are related to 
published aeronautical charts that are essential to the user, and 
provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. In 
addition, those various reasons or circumstances require making this 
amendment effective before the next scheduled charting and publication 
date of the flight information to assure its timely availability to the 
user. The effective date of this amendment reflects those 
considerations. In view of the close and immediate relationship between 
these regulatory changes and safety in air commerce, I find that notice 
and public procedure before adopting this amendment are impracticable 
and contrary to the public interest and that good cause exists for 
making the amendment effective in less than 30 days.

Conclusion

    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 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. For the same reason, the FAA 
certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
