SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference Authority for This Rulemaking This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by: Modifying the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Manitowoc County Airport, Manitowoc, WI, by adding an extension 9.7 mile west and 5.8 miles east of the 350° (corrected from 352) bearing from the Manitowoc County: RWY 17–LOC extending from the Manitowoc County: RWY 17–LOC to 11 miles north of the Manitowoc County: RWY 17–LOC; and Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from a 7-mile radius) at the Sheboygan County Memorial Airport, Sheboygan, WI; and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action is due to an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Manitowoc VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of the VOR MON Program. 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 the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Manitowoc County Airport, Manitowoc, WI, and Sheboygan County Memorial Airport, Sheboygan, WI, to support IFR operations at these airports. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (84 FR 6711; February 28, 2019) for Docket No. FAA–2019–0081 to amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Manitowoc County Airport, Manitowoc, WI, and Sheboygan County Memorial Airport, Sheboygan, WI. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to publication, the FAA discovered a typographic error in the bearing in the Manitowoc, WI, airspace legal description. That error is corrected in this action. 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 71.1.

FAA Order 7400.11C lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule 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.

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 the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Manitowoc County Airport, Manitowoc, WI, and Sheboygan 
County Memorial Airport, Sheboygan, WI, to support IFR operations at 
these airports.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 6711; February 28, 2019) for Docket No. FAA-2019-0081 
to amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Manitowoc County Airport, Manitowoc, WI, and Sheboygan 
County Memorial Airport, Sheboygan, WI. Interested parties were invited 
to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments 
on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.
    Subsequent to publication, the FAA discovered a typographic error 
in the bearing in the Manitowoc, WI, airspace legal description. That 
error is corrected in this action.
    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 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    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 by:
    Modifying the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Manitowoc County Airport, Manitowoc, WI, by adding an 
extension 9.7 mile west and 5.8 miles east of the 350[deg] (corrected 
from 352) bearing from the Manitowoc County: RWY 17-LOC extending from 
the Manitowoc County: RWY 17-LOC to 11 miles north of the Manitowoc 
County: RWY 17-LOC; and
    Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to within a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from a 7-mile radius) 
at the Sheboygan County Memorial Airport, Sheboygan, WI; and updating 
the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.
    This action is due to an airspace review caused by the 
decommissioning of the Manitowoc VOR, which provided navigation 
information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of 
the VOR MON Program.

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.
