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 the 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 restricted area airspace at Fort Polk, LA, to enhance aviation safety and accommodate essential U.S. Army hazardous force-on-force and force-ontarget training activities. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:49 Jul 15, 2019 Jkt 247001 PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 33845 FAA–2018–0984 in the Federal Register (83 FR 60382; November 26, 2018) establishing four new restricted areas, R–3803C, R–3803D, R–3803E, and R– 3803F, and making minor technical amendments to the R–3803A and R– 3803B descriptions for improved operational efficiency and administrative standardization in support of hazardous U.S. Army forceon-force and force-on-target training activities. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. Two comments were received. Discussion of Comments While supportive of the U.S. Army’s need to train as they fight, the first commenter noted that modern general aviation aircraft have longer flight endurance today, making timely NOTAM publication of restricted area activations necessary for effective flight planning. To overcome the possibility of the restricted areas being activated with no advance notification, the commenter recommended adding ‘‘at least 4 hours in advance’’ to the ‘‘By NOTAM’’ time of designation proposed for the R– 3803A, R–3803C, and R–3803D restricted areas. Additionally, the commenter requested the effective date of the proposed restricted areas, if approved, coincide with the next update of the Houston Sectional Aeronautical Chart. It is FAA policy that when NOTAMs are issued to activate special use airspace, the NOTAMs should be issued as far in advance as feasible to ensure the widest dissemination of the information to airspace users. The FAA acknowledges that the addition of the ‘‘at least 4 hours in advance’’ provision to the proposed ‘‘By NOTAM’’ time of designation, as recommended by the commenter, would contribute to ensuring the widest dissemination of the restricted areas being activated to effected airspace users. As such, the FAA adopts the commenter’s recommendation to amend the time of designation for R–3803A, R–3803C, and R–3803D to reflect ‘‘By NOTAM issued at least 4 hours in advance.’’ Additionally, the establishment of R– 3803C, R–3803D, R–3803E, and R– 3803F, and the minor technical amendments to the existing R–3803A and R–3803B legal descriptions are being made effective to coincide with the upcoming Houston Sectional Aeronautical Chart date. The second commenter raised aerial access concerns of the area in which the new restricted areas were proposed to be established. The commenter stated E:\FR\FM\16JYR1.SGM 16JYR1 jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with RULES 33846 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 16, 2019 / Rules and Regulations restriction of the airspace would require many commercial forestry activities on private lands, traditionally accomplished through aerial application, to be done via ground application which would have a detrimental effect on a purported endangered Pine Snake habitat and render land owners unable to exercise their ownership or conduct timber management with traditional, cost effective methods. The commenter added that without aerial surveillance and fire suppression flights, timber and economic losses to fire, insect, and disease would increase. The commenter also argued that closure of the restricted area airspace would have an economic impact on Central and Southwest Louisiana by limiting commercial air traffic into Alexandria International Airport, LA. The FAA considered the commenter’s concerns and has determined aerial access to the private properties underlying the new restricted areas is unaffected by the establishment of the restricted areas. When the new restricted areas are active, aerial access to the underlying privately owned properties is provided by a 1,200-foot above ground level (AGL) exclusion area incorporated within restricted area R– 3803D. The FAA believes this 1,200-foot AGL exclusion is adequate for nonparticipating aviation to perform commercial forestry activities, wildfire surveillance and suppression flights, and insect infestation detection and aerial spraying on the private lands noted by the commenters. This continued aerial access also mitigates the commenter’s concerns associated with a detrimental effect on an endangered Pine Snake habitat, as well as land owners’ abilities to exercise their land ownership or timber management actions with traditional, cost effective methods. The remaining land that underlies restricted areas R–3803C and R–3803D is owned by the U.S. Army. Aerial access to that land, when the restricted areas are active, will be provided using the same processes and procedures that are in place today for accessing the land under the existing R–3803A. Lastly, as part of the aeronautical study conducted by Houston Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC), the FAA analyzed the impact to commercial air traffic into Alexandria International Airport, LA, as noted by the commenter. Houston ARTCC acknowledged instrument arrival and departure procedures into the Houston Terminal Area and Alexandria International Airport would be impacted slightly. However, the altitudes and times of use VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:49 Jul 15, 2019 Jkt 247001 for the restricted areas will greatly mitigate any impact on these procedures. Additionally, the procedures are seldom used and if required the aircraft can be positively controlled away from the procedural routings, so the impact to these areas will be negligible. Houston ARTCC ultimately recommended approval and deemed the establishment of the four new restricted areas would not have an adverse impact on the commercial air traffic into Alexandria International Airport. Military Operations Areas (MOA) In the NPRM, the FAA acknowledged that the proposed R–3803C and R– 3803D restricted areas, if established, would be designated within the existing Warrior 1 Low and Warrior 1 High Military Operations Areas (MOAs). To address potential airspace issues and confusion created if all special use airspace (SUA) areas were active at the same time, the FAA stated it would amend the legal descriptions of both MOAs to exclude that airspace within R–3803C and R–3803D when the restricted areas were activated. MOAs are established to separate or segregate non-hazardous military flight activities from aircraft operating in accordance with instrument flight rules (IFR) and to advise pilots flying under visual flight rules (VFR) where these activities are conducted. IFR aircraft may be routed through an active MOA only by agreement with the using agency and only when air traffic control can provide approved separation from the MOA activity. VFR pilots are not restricted from flying in an active MOA but are advised to exercise caution while doing so. MOAs are nonregulatory airspace areas that are established or amended administratively and published in the National Flight Data Digest (NFDD) rather than through rulemaking procedures. When a nonrulemaking action is ancillary to a rulemaking action, FAA procedures allow for the nonrulemaking changes to be included in the rulemaking action. Since amendments to the Warrior 1 Low and Warrior 1 High MOAs descriptions are ancillary to the establishment of R– 3803C and R–3803D, the MOA changes are addressed in this rule as well as being published in the NFDD. The FAA circularized a proposal to make editorial amendments to the Warrior 1 Low and Warrior 1 High MOAs boundary descriptions, contingent upon R–3803C and R–3803D being established, to add language that excluded that airspace within R–3803C and R–3803D when the restricted areas were activated. Interested parties were PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 invited to participate in this proposed nonrulemaking action by submitting written comments on the proposal. Two comments were received. Both commenters raised the same concerns over restrictions to aerial access for forest landowners, loggers, and forest industry stakeholders. Specifically, the commenters argued the proposed MOA amendments restricted the ability to aerially detect wildfires, inspect for insect infestations, and treat forest lands with chemicals and fertilizers in the impact area. They contended the added costs of conducting forest management practices from only the ground would add substantial costs to their operations and be less effective, and that the economic loss caused by the MOA proposal to forestry, loggers, and the forest industry as well as revenue to the local and state economy would be considerable. In response, the FAA offers that the external boundaries, altitudes, times of use, or activities to be conducted within the Warrior MOA complex remain the same with the inclusion of the proposed restricted area exclusion language amendments. Aerial access for forest landowners, loggers, and forest industry stakeholders within the amended MOAs would be unchanged when the new restricted areas are not activated. When the new restricted areas are activated, aerial access to the private properties would be provided by the 1,200-foot AGL exclusion area within R–3803D and support the continued aviation activities described by the commenters. For aerial access to the U.S. Army owned property underlying R–3803C and the portion of R–3803D that extends upward from the surface, it will be provided using the same processes and procedures that are in place today for nonparticipant aircraft to access the existing R–3803A. Since aerial access to the private and U.S. Army owned lands falling under the amended MOAs, R– 3803C, and R–3803D will continue to be available for forest landowners, loggers, and forest industry stakeholders, the aerial forest management practices noted by the commenters will not be impacted and the economic loss or revenue impact concerns noted by the commenters mitigated. As a result, the Warrior 1 Low and Warrior 1 High MOAs boundary descriptions are being amended to include language that excludes that airspace within R–3803C and R–3803D when the restricted areas are activated. These editorial amendments overcome any potential airspace confusion or conflict resulting from the overlapping restricted areas and MOAs being activated at the same time. Additionally, E:\FR\FM\16JYR1.SGM 16JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 16, 2019 / Rules and Regulations jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with RULES the amendments help inform nonparticipants when portions of the MOAs are not available due to hazardous activities being conducted in the overlapping restricted areas. The amended boundary descriptions for the MOAs will be published in the NFDD; the rest of the MOAs legal descriptions remain unchanged. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 by establishing four new restricted areas, R–3803C, R–3803D, R–3803E, and R– 3803F, located south-southeast of the existing R–3803A and R–3803B restricted areas, supporting the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, LA. The new restricted areas will support the U.S. Army conducting realistic force-on-force and force-ontarget training employing longer-range surface-to-surface and air-to-surface munitions. Of the new restricted areas, R–3803C and R–3803D will extend upward from the surface to but not including FL 180. Stacked above R–3803C, R–3803E will be established extending upward from FL 180 to but not including FL 350. Similarly, stacked above R–3803D, R– 3803F will be established extending upward from FL 180 to but not including FL 350. The boundaries of the R–3803C and R–3803E restricted areas will match, as will the boundaries of the R–3803D and R–3803F restricted areas. However, there is an airspace cutout included in the R–3803D boundary description, extending upward from the surface to 1,200 feet AGL, to allow aerial access to the private land under the restricted area that the Army does not own or control. Restricted areas R–3803C and R– 3803D will be activated by NOTAM issued at least 4 hours in advance, with an anticipated usage of 18 hours per day approximately 320 days per year. The higher strata restricted areas, R–3803E and R–3803F, will be activated by NOTAM issued at least 24 hours in advance, with an anticipated usage of 8 hours per day approximately 20 days per year. Lastly, a number of minor editorial and technical amendments to the existing R–3803A and R–3803B restricted area legal descriptions are being made. They include: • The designated altitudes for R– 3803A is changed from ‘‘Surface to FL 180’’ to ‘‘Surface to but not including FL 180.’’ • The designated altitudes for R– 3803B is changed from ‘‘FL 180 up to but not including FL 350’’ to ‘‘FL 180 to but not including FL 350.’’ This VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:49 Jul 15, 2019 Jkt 247001 amendment was noted in the NPRM preamble to match the designated altitudes of the upper proposed restricted areas, listed as R–3803C and R–3803D in error. The correct upper proposed restricted areas that should have been listed are R–3803E and R– 3803F. The regulatory text in the NPRM for the R–3803B, R–3803E, and R–3803F designated altitudes all matched with the correct proposed amendment information. • The time of designation for R– 3803A is changed from ‘‘Continuous’’ to ‘‘By NOTAM issued at least 4 hours in advance.’’ • The time of designation for R– 3803B is changed from ‘‘As activated by NOTAM issued at least 24 hours in advance’’ to ‘‘By NOTAM issued at least 24 hours in advance.’’ • The using agency for R–3803A and R–3803B is changed from ‘‘Commanding General, Fort Polk, LA’’ to ‘‘U.S. Army, Joint Readiness Training Center, Fort Polk, LA.’’ The new restricted areas R–3803C and R–3803D are designated within the existing Warrior 1 Low and Warrior 1 High Military Operations Areas (MOAs). To address potential airspace issues and confusion created when the restricted areas and MOAs are active at the same time, the FAA is taking action to amend both MOA legal descriptions to exclude that airspace within R–3803C and R– 3803D when the restricted areas are activated. 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 Department of Transportation (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, will 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 of establishing four restricted areas, R–3803C, R–3803D, R–3803E, and R–3803F, located south southeast of the R–3803 restricted area complex at Fort PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 33847 Polk, LA, qualifies for FAA adoption in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 8–2, Adoption of Other Agencies’ National Environmental Policy Act Documents, and FAA Order 7400.2M, paragraph 32–2–3 (Special Use Airspace). After conducting an independent review and evaluation of the U.S. Army’s Joint Readiness Training Center, Fort Polk, Louisiana, Final Environmental Assessment for the Expansion Of Restricted Area Complex Airspace R–3803 (March 2019) and Finding Of No Significant Impact, the FAA has determined that the Army’s EA and its supporting documentation adequately assesses and discloses the environmental impacts of the proposed action, including establishment of restricted areas R–3803C, R–3803D, R– 3803E, and R–3803F. Based on the evaluation in the Army’s EA, the FAA, as a Cooperating Agency, concluded that the Army’s EA qualifies for adoption by FAA, and that the FAA’s adoption of the Army’s EA for the expansion of the R–3803 restricted area complex in central Louisiana by establishing four new restricted areas, R–3803C, R–3803D, R–3803E, and R– 3803F is authorized in accordance with 40 CFR 1506.3, Adoption. Accordingly, FAA adopts the Army’s EA and takes full responsibility for the scope and content that addresses the FAA’s actions associated with the establishment of the additional restricted areas.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Section 501(e) of the Trade and Development Act of 2000, Public Law 106–200, required the President to fairly allocate tariff rate quotas on the import of certain worsted wool fabrics established under Sections 501(a) and (b) of the Act. Section 504(b) authorized the President to modify the limitations on worsted wool fabric imports under the tariff rate quotas. In Presidential Proclamation 7383 of December 1, 2000, the President delegated to the Secretary of Commerce the authority to allocate the quantity of imports under the tariff rate quotas; to annually consider requests from domestic manufacturers of worsted wool apparel to modify the limitation on the quantity of worsted wool fabrics that may be imported under the tariff rate quotas; to determine whether the limitations on the quantity of imports under the tariff rate quotas should be modified and recommend to the President that appropriate modifications be made; and to issue regulations to implement the relevant provisions of the Act. Pursuant to that delegation, the Department issued the regulations at 15 CFR part 335 and revised those regulations in 2005 (70 FR 24941; May 12, 2005) to implement amendments to the program under Title IV (entitled the ‘‘Wool Suit and Textile Trade Extension Act of 2004’’) of the Miscellaneous Trade and Technical Corrections Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108– 429). Section 325(a) of the Tax Extenders and Alternative Minimum Tax Relief Act of 2008, Division C of Pub. L. 110–343, extended the authority for the tariff rate quota program until December 31, 2014, at which time the program expired. Classification This final rule was drafted in accordance with Executive Orders 12866, 13563, and 13771. OMB has determined that this rule is not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866. This final rule is a deregulatory action under Executive Order 13771. Administrative Procedure Act and Regulatory Flexibility Act Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), there is good cause to waive prior notice and an opportunity for public comment on this action, as notice and comment are unnecessary. This rule removes obsolete regulations implementing the sections E:\FR\FM\16JYR1.SGM 16JYR1

Expansion of R-3803 Restricted Area Complex; Fort Polk, LA

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This action expands the R-3803 restricted area complex in 
central Louisiana by establishing four new restricted areas, R-3803C, 
R-3803D, R-3803E, and R-3803F, and makes minor technical amendments to 
the existing R-3803A and R-3803B legal descriptions for improved 
operational efficiency and administrative standardization. The 
restricted area establishments and amendments support U.S. Army Joint 
Readiness Training Center training requirements at Fort Polk for 
military units preparing for overseas deployment.

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 
the 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 restricted area airspace at Fort Polk, LA, 
to enhance aviation safety and accommodate essential U.S. Army 
hazardous force-on-force and force-on-target training activities.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. 
FAA-2018-0984 in the Federal Register (83 FR 60382; November 26, 2018) 
establishing four new restricted areas, R-3803C, R-3803D, R-3803E, and 
R-3803F, and making minor technical amendments to the R-3803A and R-
3803B descriptions for improved operational efficiency and 
administrative standardization in support of hazardous U.S. Army force-
on-force and force-on-target training activities. Interested parties 
were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting 
written comments on the proposal. Two comments were received.

Discussion of Comments

    While supportive of the U.S. Army's need to train as they fight, 
the first commenter noted that modern general aviation aircraft have 
longer flight endurance today, making timely NOTAM publication of 
restricted area activations necessary for effective flight planning. To 
overcome the possibility of the restricted areas being activated with 
no advance notification, the commenter recommended adding ``at least 4 
hours in advance'' to the ``By NOTAM'' time of designation proposed for 
the R-3803A, R-3803C, and R-3803D restricted areas. Additionally, the 
commenter requested the effective date of the proposed restricted 
areas, if approved, coincide with the next update of the Houston 
Sectional Aeronautical Chart.
    It is FAA policy that when NOTAMs are issued to activate special 
use airspace, the NOTAMs should be issued as far in advance as feasible 
to ensure the widest dissemination of the information to airspace 
users. The FAA acknowledges that the addition of the ``at least 4 hours 
in advance'' provision to the proposed ``By NOTAM'' time of 
designation, as recommended by the commenter, would contribute to 
ensuring the widest dissemination of the restricted areas being 
activated to effected airspace users. As such, the FAA adopts the 
commenter's recommendation to amend the time of designation for R-
3803A, R-3803C, and R-3803D to reflect ``By NOTAM issued at least 4 
hours in advance.''
    Additionally, the establishment of R-3803C, R-3803D, R-3803E, and 
R-3803F, and the minor technical amendments to the existing R-3803A and 
R-3803B legal descriptions are being made effective to coincide with 
the upcoming Houston Sectional Aeronautical Chart date.
    The second commenter raised aerial access concerns of the area in 
which the new restricted areas were proposed to be established. The 
commenter stated

[[Page 33846]]

restriction of the airspace would require many commercial forestry 
activities on private lands, traditionally accomplished through aerial 
application, to be done via ground application which would have a 
detrimental effect on a purported endangered Pine Snake habitat and 
render land owners unable to exercise their ownership or conduct timber 
management with traditional, cost effective methods. The commenter 
added that without aerial surveillance and fire suppression flights, 
timber and economic losses to fire, insect, and disease would increase. 
The commenter also argued that closure of the restricted area airspace 
would have an economic impact on Central and Southwest Louisiana by 
limiting commercial air traffic into Alexandria International Airport, 
LA.
    The FAA considered the commenter's concerns and has determined 
aerial access to the private properties underlying the new restricted 
areas is unaffected by the establishment of the restricted areas. When 
the new restricted areas are active, aerial access to the underlying 
privately owned properties is provided by a 1,200-foot above ground 
level (AGL) exclusion area incorporated within restricted area R-3803D. 
The FAA believes this 1,200-foot AGL exclusion is adequate for non-
participating aviation to perform commercial forestry activities, 
wildfire surveillance and suppression flights, and insect infestation 
detection and aerial spraying on the private lands noted by the 
commenters. This continued aerial access also mitigates the commenter's 
concerns associated with a detrimental effect on an endangered Pine 
Snake habitat, as well as land owners' abilities to exercise their land 
ownership or timber management actions with traditional, cost effective 
methods.
    The remaining land that underlies restricted areas R-3803C and R-
3803D is owned by the U.S. Army. Aerial access to that land, when the 
restricted areas are active, will be provided using the same processes 
and procedures that are in place today for accessing the land under the 
existing R-3803A.
    Lastly, as part of the aeronautical study conducted by Houston Air 
Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC), the FAA analyzed the impact to 
commercial air traffic into Alexandria International Airport, LA, as 
noted by the commenter. Houston ARTCC acknowledged instrument arrival 
and departure procedures into the Houston Terminal Area and Alexandria 
International Airport would be impacted slightly. However, the 
altitudes and times of use for the restricted areas will greatly 
mitigate any impact on these procedures. Additionally, the procedures 
are seldom used and if required the aircraft can be positively 
controlled away from the procedural routings, so the impact to these 
areas will be negligible. Houston ARTCC ultimately recommended approval 
and deemed the establishment of the four new restricted areas would not 
have an adverse impact on the commercial air traffic into Alexandria 
International Airport.

Military Operations Areas (MOA)

    In the NPRM, the FAA acknowledged that the proposed R-3803C and R-
3803D restricted areas, if established, would be designated within the 
existing Warrior 1 Low and Warrior 1 High Military Operations Areas 
(MOAs). To address potential airspace issues and confusion created if 
all special use airspace (SUA) areas were active at the same time, the 
FAA stated it would amend the legal descriptions of both MOAs to 
exclude that airspace within R-3803C and R-3803D when the restricted 
areas were activated.
    MOAs are established to separate or segregate non-hazardous 
military flight activities from aircraft operating in accordance with 
instrument flight rules (IFR) and to advise pilots flying under visual 
flight rules (VFR) where these activities are conducted. IFR aircraft 
may be routed through an active MOA only by agreement with the using 
agency and only when air traffic control can provide approved 
separation from the MOA activity. VFR pilots are not restricted from 
flying in an active MOA but are advised to exercise caution while doing 
so. MOAs are nonregulatory airspace areas that are established or 
amended administratively and published in the National Flight Data 
Digest (NFDD) rather than through rulemaking procedures. When a 
nonrulemaking action is ancillary to a rulemaking action, FAA 
procedures allow for the nonrulemaking changes to be included in the 
rulemaking action. Since amendments to the Warrior 1 Low and Warrior 1 
High MOAs descriptions are ancillary to the establishment of R-3803C 
and R-3803D, the MOA changes are addressed in this rule as well as 
being published in the NFDD.
    The FAA circularized a proposal to make editorial amendments to the 
Warrior 1 Low and Warrior 1 High MOAs boundary descriptions, contingent 
upon R-3803C and R-3803D being established, to add language that 
excluded that airspace within R-3803C and R-3803D when the restricted 
areas were activated. Interested parties were invited to participate in 
this proposed nonrulemaking action by submitting written comments on 
the proposal. Two comments were received.
    Both commenters raised the same concerns over restrictions to 
aerial access for forest landowners, loggers, and forest industry 
stakeholders. Specifically, the commenters argued the proposed MOA 
amendments restricted the ability to aerially detect wildfires, inspect 
for insect infestations, and treat forest lands with chemicals and 
fertilizers in the impact area. They contended the added costs of 
conducting forest management practices from only the ground would add 
substantial costs to their operations and be less effective, and that 
the economic loss caused by the MOA proposal to forestry, loggers, and 
the forest industry as well as revenue to the local and state economy 
would be considerable.
    In response, the FAA offers that the external boundaries, 
altitudes, times of use, or activities to be conducted within the 
Warrior MOA complex remain the same with the inclusion of the proposed 
restricted area exclusion language amendments. Aerial access for forest 
landowners, loggers, and forest industry stakeholders within the 
amended MOAs would be unchanged when the new restricted areas are not 
activated. When the new restricted areas are activated, aerial access 
to the private properties would be provided by the 1,200-foot AGL 
exclusion area within R-3803D and support the continued aviation 
activities described by the commenters. For aerial access to the U.S. 
Army owned property underlying R-3803C and the portion of R-3803D that 
extends upward from the surface, it will be provided using the same 
processes and procedures that are in place today for nonparticipant 
aircraft to access the existing R-3803A. Since aerial access to the 
private and U.S. Army owned lands falling under the amended MOAs, R-
3803C, and R-3803D will continue to be available for forest landowners, 
loggers, and forest industry stakeholders, the aerial forest management 
practices noted by the commenters will not be impacted and the economic 
loss or revenue impact concerns noted by the commenters mitigated.
    As a result, the Warrior 1 Low and Warrior 1 High MOAs boundary 
descriptions are being amended to include language that excludes that 
airspace within R-3803C and R-3803D when the restricted areas are 
activated. These editorial amendments overcome any potential airspace 
confusion or conflict resulting from the overlapping restricted areas 
and MOAs being activated at the same time. Additionally,

[[Page 33847]]

the amendments help inform nonparticipants when portions of the MOAs 
are not available due to hazardous activities being conducted in the 
overlapping restricted areas. The amended boundary descriptions for the 
MOAs will be published in the NFDD; the rest of the MOAs legal 
descriptions remain unchanged.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 73 by establishing four new restricted areas, R-3803C, R-3803D, R-
3803E, and R-3803F, located south-southeast of the existing R-3803A and 
R-3803B restricted areas, supporting the Joint Readiness Training 
Center at Fort Polk, LA. The new restricted areas will support the U.S. 
Army conducting realistic force-on-force and force-on-target training 
employing longer-range surface-to-surface and air-to-surface munitions.
    Of the new restricted areas, R-3803C and R-3803D will extend upward 
from the surface to but not including FL 180. Stacked above R-3803C, R-
3803E will be established extending upward from FL 180 to but not 
including FL 350. Similarly, stacked above R-3803D, R-3803F will be 
established extending upward from FL 180 to but not including FL 350. 
The boundaries of the R-3803C and R-3803E restricted areas will match, 
as will the boundaries of the R-3803D and R-3803F restricted areas. 
However, there is an airspace cutout included in the R-3803D boundary 
description, extending upward from the surface to 1,200 feet AGL, to 
allow aerial access to the private land under the restricted area that 
the Army does not own or control.
    Restricted areas R-3803C and R-3803D will be activated by NOTAM 
issued at least 4 hours in advance, with an anticipated usage of 18 
hours per day approximately 320 days per year. The higher strata 
restricted areas, R-3803E and R-3803F, will be activated by NOTAM 
issued at least 24 hours in advance, with an anticipated usage of 8 
hours per day approximately 20 days per year.
    Lastly, a number of minor editorial and technical amendments to the 
existing R-3803A and R-3803B restricted area legal descriptions are 
being made. They include:
     The designated altitudes for R-3803A is changed from 
``Surface to FL 180'' to ``Surface to but not including FL 180.''
     The designated altitudes for R-3803B is changed from ``FL 
180 up to but not including FL 350'' to ``FL 180 to but not including 
FL 350.'' This amendment was noted in the NPRM preamble to match the 
designated altitudes of the upper proposed restricted areas, listed as 
R-3803C and R-3803D in error. The correct upper proposed restricted 
areas that should have been listed are R-3803E and R-3803F. The 
regulatory text in the NPRM for the R-3803B, R-3803E, and R-3803F 
designated altitudes all matched with the correct proposed amendment 
information.
     The time of designation for R-3803A is changed from 
``Continuous'' to ``By NOTAM issued at least 4 hours in advance.''
     The time of designation for R-3803B is changed from ``As 
activated by NOTAM issued at least 24 hours in advance'' to ``By NOTAM 
issued at least 24 hours in advance.''
     The using agency for R-3803A and R-3803B is changed from 
``Commanding General, Fort Polk, LA'' to ``U.S. Army, Joint Readiness 
Training Center, Fort Polk, LA.''
    The new restricted areas R-3803C and R-3803D are designated within 
the existing Warrior 1 Low and Warrior 1 High Military Operations Areas 
(MOAs). To address potential airspace issues and confusion created when 
the restricted areas and MOAs are active at the same time, the FAA is 
taking action to amend both MOA legal descriptions to exclude that 
airspace within R-3803C and R-3803D when the restricted areas are 
activated.

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 
Department of Transportation (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, will 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 of establishing four 
restricted areas, R-3803C, R-3803D, R-3803E, and R-3803F, located south 
southeast of the R-3803 restricted area complex at Fort Polk, LA, 
qualifies for FAA adoption in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, 
paragraph 8-2, Adoption of Other Agencies' National Environmental 
Policy Act Documents, and FAA Order 7400.2M, paragraph 32-2-3 (Special 
Use Airspace). After conducting an independent review and evaluation of 
the U.S. Army's Joint Readiness Training Center, Fort Polk, Louisiana, 
Final Environmental Assessment for the Expansion Of Restricted Area 
Complex Airspace R-3803 (March 2019) and Finding Of No Significant 
Impact, the FAA has determined that the Army's EA and its supporting 
documentation adequately assesses and discloses the environmental 
impacts of the proposed action, including establishment of restricted 
areas R-3803C, R-3803D, R-3803E, and R-3803F. Based on the evaluation 
in the Army's EA, the FAA, as a Cooperating Agency, concluded that the 
Army's EA qualifies for adoption by FAA, and that the FAA's adoption of 
the Army's EA for the expansion of the R-3803 restricted area complex 
in central Louisiana by establishing four new restricted areas, R-
3803C, R-3803D, R-3803E, and R-3803F is authorized in accordance with 
40 CFR 1506.3, Adoption. Accordingly, FAA adopts the Army's EA and 
takes full responsibility for the scope and content that addresses the 
FAA's actions associated with the establishment of the additional 
restricted areas.
