This rulemaking is VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:01 May 10, 2019 Jkt 247001 20775 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 surface area and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mount Vernon Airport, Mount Vernon, IL, to support IFR operations at this airport. associated extension from the airspace legal description; and by updating the name of the airport (formerly Mount Vernon/Outland Airport) and 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 Mount Vernon VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of the VOR MON Program. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (84 FR 6708; February 28, 2019) for Docket No. FAA–2019–0041 to amend the Class E surface area and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mount Vernon Airport, Mount Vernon, IL. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One comment was received supporting this action. No response is provided. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 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. 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.

Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20580. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: § 71.1 I. Background The Commission issued the Guides for the Nursery Industry in 1979.1 These Guides address various sales claims for outdoor plants, including representations regarding quantity, size, grade, kind, species, age, maturity, condition, vigor, hardiness, growth ability, price, and origin or place where grown. The Commission amended the Guides in 1994 to update legal terminology, and again in 2007 to make a technical correction.2 The Commission reviews its rules and guides periodically to seek information about their costs and benefits to consumers and businesses, regulatory and economic impact, and general effectiveness in protecting consumers and helping industry avoid deceptive claims. These reviews assist the Commission in identifying rules and guides that warrant modification or rescission. On February 22, 2018, the Commission initiated its scheduled regulatory review of the Nursery Guides and solicited public comment on several issues.3 Specifically, the Commission sought input on the continuing need for the Guides; their economic impact; possible conflict between the Guides and state, local, federal, or international laws; and the effect of any technological, economic, environmental, or other industry changes. The Commission also solicited comment on issues specific to the Guides, such as whether the Commission should update plant classification references. In response, the Commission received one comment from the National Federation of Independent Business (‘‘NFIB’’). NFIB argued the Commission should rescind the Guides because they are an unnecessary federal regulatory burden. NFIB also contended that regulation or [Amended] 2.

Rescission of the Guides for the Nursery Industry. AGENCY: ACTION: The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) has completed its review of the Guides for the Nursery Industry (‘‘Nursery Guides’’ or ‘‘Guides’’) as part of its systematic review of all current Commission regulations and guides. Pursuant to that review, the Commission now rescinds the Guides. DATES: The rescission is effective June 12, 2019. ADDRESSES: Copies of this document are available on the Commission’s website, www.ftc.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hampton Newsome, (202) 326–2889, Attorney, Division of Enforcement, Bureau of Consumer Protection, Federal jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:01 May 10, 2019 Jkt 247001 1 The Commission issued the Guides in 1979 (44 FR 11176 (Feb. 27, 1979)) to replace trade practice rules for the nursery industry (16 CFR part 34) first promulgated in the 1950s (23 FR 4803 (June 28, 1958)). The Guides were intended to help marketers avoid making claims that are unfair or deceptive under Section 5 of the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. 45. Industry guides, such as the Nursery Guides, are administrative interpretations of laws administered by the Commission. They do not have the force of law and are not independently enforceable. Failure to follow industry guides may result, however, in enforcement action under the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. 45. In any such action, the Commission must prove that the act or practice at issue is unfair or deceptive in violation of Section 5 of the FTC Act. 2 See 59 FR 64546 (Dec. 14, 1994); 72 FR 901 (Jan. 9, 2007). 3 See 83 FR 7643 (Feb. 22, 2018). PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 guidance concerning the nursery business is more properly conducted at the state, rather than federal, level. Based on the lack of comments, as well as the paucity of consumer complaints and the lack of need for law enforcement action over the past two decades, on September 10, 2018 (83 FR 45582), the Commission published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (‘‘NPRM’’) seeking comments on a proposed rescission of the Guides. The Commission stated that the Guides no longer appear necessary, and thus serve little purpose to industry or consumers. Specifically, the types of practices detailed in the Guides do not appear to be prevalent in the nursery industry; little evidence exists that industry members currently use the Guides to help avoid deceptive practices; and rescission will have no impact on the FTC’s ability to address unfair and deceptive practices in the nursery industry. II. Comments Received In response to the proposed rescission notice, the Commission received five comments, offering conflicting opinions.4 The National Federation of Independent Business (‘‘NFIB’’), which had commented on the initial Notice, supported the proposed rescission, commenting that ‘‘federal agencies should refrain from imposing unwarranted burdens on the American people and revoke unnecessary regulation.’’ AmericanHort, an industry association representing nursery growers, greenhouses, and other garden retailers, supported retaining the Guides but also noted that ‘‘the overall need for the Guides has perhaps diminished somewhat based on the general evolution of consumer protection mechanisms in our society.’’ Three individual commenters opposed rescinding the Guides. Commenter Harrod argued that, ‘‘due to the dishonest nature of some people,’’ the Guides will always be needed. The commenter also asserted that rescission would imply that it is ‘‘now okay to deceive people to make money.’’ Similarly, commenter Lerner explained that the ‘‘average nursery consumer lacks the expertise to identify species of plants’’ and suggested the lack of complaints may be due to the Guides’ effectiveness.5 4 The comments, which can be found at https:// www.ftc.gov/policy/public-comments/2018/09/ initiative-770, included AmericanHort (#00007), NFIB (Nat’l Fed’n of Independent Business) (#00005), Lerner (#00004), Smith (#00003), and Harrod (#00002). 5 Commenter Smith also opposed rescission without elaboration.

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 surface area and Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mount Vernon Airport, Mount 
Vernon, IL, to support IFR operations at this airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 6708; February 28, 2019) for Docket No. FAA-2019-0041 
to amend the Class E surface area and Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface at Mount Vernon Airport, Mount Vernon, 
IL. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One 
comment was received supporting this action. No response is provided.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 
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 surface area to within a 4.1-mile radius 
(reduced from a 4.2-mile radius) at Mount Vernon Airport, Mount Vernon, 
IL, and removing the Mount Vernon VOR/DME and the associate extension 
from the airspace legal description;
    And modifying the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Mount Vernon Airport, Mount Vernon, IL, by 
removing the Mount Vernon VOR/DME and the associated extension from the 
airspace legal description; and by updating the name of the airport 
(formerly Mount Vernon/Outland Airport) and 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 Mount Vernon 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.
