Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Cortland, Elmira, Ithaca, and Endicott, NY, 25497-25499 [2019-11496]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 106 / Monday, June 3, 2019 / Proposed Rules jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with PROPOSALS SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. General Information The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) guarantees bid, payment, and performance bonds for small and emerging contractors who cannot obtain surety bonds through regular commercial channels. SBA’s guarantee, authorized pursuant to Part B of Title IV of the Small Business Investment Act of 1958, 15 U.S.C. 694a et seq., gives Sureties an incentive to provide bonding for small businesses and, thereby, assists small businesses in obtaining greater access to contracting opportunities. SBA’s guarantee is an agreement between a Surety and SBA that SBA will assume a certain percentage of the Surety’s loss should a contractor default on the underlying contract. SBA is authorized to guarantee a Surety for a contract up to $6.5 million and, with the certification of a contracting officer of a Federal agency, up to $10 million. For more information about SBA’s Surety Bond Guarantee Program, see https://www.sba.gov/ funding-programs/surety-bonds. The regulations governing the Surety Bond Guarantee (SBG) Program are codified in 13 CFR part 115: Subpart A of part 115 contains provisions that apply to all surety bond guarantees; subpart B contains provisions that apply to the bond guarantees subject to prior approval by SBA; and subpart C contains provisions that apply to the bond guarantees that Preferred Surety Bond Sureties may issue under delegated authority. SBA is inviting comments from the public on identifying which of these regulations should be repealed, replaced, or modified because they are obsolete, unnecessary, ineffective, or burdensome. (In 2017, SBA published a similar request that covered all the agency’s programs and regulations, see 82 FR 38618 (August 15, 2017), but SBA received no comments on part 115. By focusing only on the SBG Program, SBA believes that this request is more likely to receive the attention of interested parties.) In addition, SBA is interested in receiving comments from the public on how SBA can improve the surety bond products, procedures, forms, and reporting requirements of the SBG Program. SBA is also considering whether to make changes to certain specific regulations and invites comments from the public on these issues. For example, SBA has received requests from Prior Approval Sureties to change the criteria in § 115.30(d)(2) for using the Quick Bond Guarantee Application and Agreement (SBA Form 990A), including VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:08 May 31, 2019 Jkt 247001 increasing the maximum contract amount of $400,000, the maximum contract period of 12 months, the $1,000 per day limit on liquidated damages, and eliminating the prohibition against contracts involving demolition. In addition, under § 115.14(a)(3), a contractor loses eligibility for future SBA assistance if the Surety has established a claim reserve of at least $1,000 for an outstanding SBAguarantee bond. SBA is considering whether the claim reserve amount is set at the correct amount to mitigate future risk and, if not, what the amount should be. SBA is also considering whether the regulations that set the minimum amount for collecting or refunding the Principal and Surety guarantee fees, including §§ 115.32(d)(2) and (3) and 115.67(a) and (b), should be changed by increasing the amount from the current $40. II. List of Questions for Commenters The list of questions below is meant to assist in the formulation of public comments and is not intended to restrict the issues that may be addressed. SBA requests that commenters identify the specific regulation at issue and explain, in as much detail as possible, why the regulation should be streamlined, expanded, or repealed, including estimated cost savings and benefits to small businesses and other stakeholders. 1. Are there regulations in 13 CFR part 115 that have become unnecessary or ineffective and, if so, what are they? 2. Are there regulations in 13 CFR part 115 that can be repealed without impairing SBA’s Surety Bond Guarantee Program and, if so, what are they? 3. Are there regulations in 13 CFR part 115 that have become outdated and, if so, how can they be modernized to better accomplish their regulatory objectives? 4. Are there regulations in 13 CFR part 115 that are still necessary, but which have not operated as well as expected such that a modified approach is justified, and what is that approach? 5. Are there regulations or regulatory processes in 13 CFR part 115 that are too complicated or could be streamlined to achieve regulatory objectives more efficiently? 6. Are there any technological developments that can be leveraged to modify, streamline, or repeal any existing regulatory requirements in 13 CFR part 115? 7. Should SBA make changes to any of the criteria set forth in § 115.30(d)(2) under which a Prior Approval Surety may use the Quick Bond Guarantee Application and Agreement (SBA Form PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 25497 990A)? If yes, describe the change and provide the reason for your response. 8. Under § 115.14(a)(3), a contractor (and its affiliates) loses eligibility for further SBA bond guarantees if the Surety has established a claim reserve for an SBA-guaranteed bond of at least $1,000. Should SBA change the claim reserve amount? If so, describe the change and provide the reasons for your response. 9. Should SBA increase the minimum amount for collecting or refunding Principal and Surety guarantee fees from $40? If yes, what should the amount be? Please provide reasons for your response. 10. In addition to the types of bonds that are currently offered through the SBG Program, are there any other surety bond products that you would like SBA to offer through its SBG Program that would assist small businesses in need of government assistance? If so, describe the product and how it would benefit small businesses. Interested parties are invited to provide any other comments that they may have relating to the concerns described in this advance notice of proposed rulemaking. We ask that you provide a brief justification for any suggested changes. Authority: 15 U.S.C. 692, 694 and 695; Sec. 12079, Pub. L. 110–246, 122 Stat. 1651; E.O. 13771; E.O. 13777.

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 considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 7-mile radius of 
Cortland County Airport-Chase Field, Cortland, NY, within a 12.5-mile 
radius of Elmira/Corning Regional Airport, Elmira/Corning, NY, within a 
9.5-mile radius of Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport, Ithaca, NY and 
within an 8-mile radius of Tri-Cities Airport, Endicott, NY, providing 
the controlled airspace required to support the RNAV (GPS) standard 
instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at these airports.

[[Page 25499]]

    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.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will 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 would be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies
