This action is necessary due to an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the La Crosse VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at this airport, as part of the VOR MON Program. Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005, respectively 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 D and E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, would 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 will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

The action would consolidate and revise multiple regulatory parts and apply a single set of licensing and safety regulations across several types of operations and vehicles. The proposed rule would describe the requirements to obtain a vehicle operator license, the safety requirements, and the terms and conditions of a vehicle operator license. Subsequent to its publication, the FAA received requests from the industry to hold a public meeting or reconvene the SLR2 Aviation Rulemaking Committee, as a means to further engage with the industry regarding the NPRM. In response, on June 14, 2019, the FAA posted a document to the docket entitled, ‘‘Ex Parte Correspondence to Michael LopezAlgeria, MLA Space, LLC.’’ 2 In this document, the FAA stated that, in place of a public meeting, it will accept written questions seeking clarification on specific parts of the NPRM. 1 84 FR 15296 (April 15, 2019). 2 FAA–2019–0229–0088.

Proposed Amendment of Class D and E Airspace and Establishment of 
Class E Airspace; La Crosse, WI

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend the Class D airspace, Class E 
surface airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface and establish a Class E airspace area designated as 
an extension to Class D and Class E surface areas at La Crosse Regional 
Airport, La Crosse, WI. The FAA is proposing this action as the result 
of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the La Crosse 
VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aid, which provided 
navigation information for the instrument procedures at this airport, 
as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program. The 
geographic coordinates of La Crosse Regional Airport and the name of La 
Crosse Regional Airport and Mayo Clinic Health System-Franciscan 
Healthcare, La Crosse, WI, would also be updated to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database. Airspace redesign is necessary for the 
safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations this 
airport.

and within 1 mile each side of the 119[deg] bearing from the La Crosse 
Regional Airport extending from the 4.4-mile radius of the airport to 
5.7 miles east of the airport; and within 1 mile each side of the 
216[deg] bearing from the La Crosse Regional Airport extending from the 
4.4-mile radius of the airport to 5.6 miles southwest of the airport;
    And amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at La Crosse Regional Airport by updating the name 
(previously La Crosse Municipal Airport) and geographic coordinates of 
La Crosse Regional Airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database; removing the La Crosse VOR/DME and the associated extension 
from the airspace legal description; updating the name of Mayo Clinic 
Health System-Franciscan Healthcare (previously Saint Francis Medical 
Center) to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database; adding an 
extension 1 mile each side of the 359[deg] bearing from the La Crosse 
Regional Airport extending from the 6.9-mile radius of the airport to 
7.1 miles north of the airport; adding an extension within 2.9 miles 
each side of the 036[deg] bearing from the La Crosse Regional Airport 
extending from the 6.9-mile radius of the airport to 9.6 miles 
northeast of the airport; adding an extension 1 mile each side of the 
119[deg] bearing from the La Crosse Regional Airport extending from the 
6.9-mile radius of the airport to 7.4 miles southeast of the airport; 
and adding an extension 2 miles each side of the 216[deg] bearing from 
the La Crosse Regional Airport extending from the 6.9-mile radius of 
the airport to 11.3 miles southwest of the airport.
    This action is necessary due to an airspace review caused by the 
decommissioning of the La Crosse VOR, which provided navigation 
information for the instrument procedures at this airport, as part of 
the VOR MON Program.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005, respectively 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 D and E airspace 
designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, would 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 will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
