This airspace is designed to contain IFR aircraft descending below 1,000 feet above the surface. This action also proposes to amend Class E5 airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within 3.5 miles each side of the 311° bearing extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 22.3 miles northwest of the airport, and 1.6 miles west and 4.3 miles east of the 179° bearing extending from the 4.4mile radius to 15.2 miles south of the Missoula International Airport. This airspace is designed to contain IFR aircraft descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. Further, this action proposes to amend Class E5 airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface within a 35-mile radius of the Missoula International Airport. This action also proposes an administrative update to remove the Missoula VORTAC from the legal description, this will allow the airspace to be described from a single point, enhancing the simplicity of airspace description. Further, this action proposes to remove the Missoula VORTAC from the Class E5 legal description. The VORTAC is not needed to define the airspace and removing reference to it allows for a simpler description of the airspace from the airport. Lastly, this action proposes an administrative update to the Class D and Class E2 legal descriptions to replace Airport/Facilities Directory with Chart Supplement. Class D, E2, E4 and E5 airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:06 Oct 10, 2019 Jkt 250001 will be published subsequently in the Order. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. 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.

Statutory Authority and Text of the Proposed Rule Amendments I. Introduction Section 11A(a) of the Exchange Act directs the Commission to facilitate the creation of a national market system for qualified securities.1 To help implement the national market system, the Commission has required the selfregulatory organizations (‘‘SROs’’) to act jointly through NMS plans to, among other things, establish certain facilities. Some NMS plans govern the facilities through which registered securities information processors (‘‘SIPs’’) collect, consolidate, and distribute real-time market information (also known as core data) that is essential to investors and others who wish to participate in the U.S. markets for exchange-listed equities and options. The SRO participants, through these NMS plans, charge fees for core data, and the total revenues generated by these fees totaled more than $500 million in 2017.2 Core data fees are paid by a wide range of market participants, including investors, broker-dealers, data vendors, and others. The NMS plan governing the consolidated audit trail (‘‘CAT’’) also contemplates fees would be paid by SRO participants and collected from SRO members. Rule 608(b) of Regulation NMS sets forth the procedure and requirements for amending an NMS plan. Specifically, pursuant to Rule 608(b)(1), the Commission shall publish notice of any proposed NMS plan amendments, together with the terms of substance of the filing or a description of the subjects and issues involved, and provide 1 15 U.S.C. 78k–1(a). infra Section III.A. 2 See E:\FR\FM\11OCP1.SGM 11OCP1

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by amending Class E4 airspace at Missoula 
International Airport extending upward from the surface within 1.2 
miles each side of the 310[deg] bearing extending from the 4.4-mile 
radius to 10.8 miles northwest of the airport, and within 1.3 miles 
each side of the 295[deg] bearing extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 
5.6 miles northwest of the airport, and within 0.7 miles each side of 
the 142[deg] bearing extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 5.6 miles 
southeast of the airport, and within 1.5 miles each side of the 
171[deg] bearing extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 10.6 miles south 
of the Missoula International Airport. This airspace is designed to 
contain IFR aircraft descending below 1,000 feet above the surface.
    This action also proposes to amend Class E5 airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface within 3.5 miles each side of 
the 311[deg] bearing extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 22.3 miles 
northwest of the airport, and 1.6 miles west and 4.3 miles east of the 
179[deg] bearing extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 15.2 miles south 
of the Missoula International Airport. This airspace is designed to 
contain IFR aircraft descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. 
Further, this action proposes to amend Class E5 airspace extending 
upward from 1,200 feet above the surface within a 35-mile radius of the 
Missoula International Airport. This action also proposes an 
administrative update to remove the Missoula VORTAC from the legal 
description, this will allow the airspace to be described from a single 
point, enhancing the simplicity of airspace description.
    Further, this action proposes to remove the Missoula VORTAC from 
the Class E5 legal description. The VORTAC is not needed to define the 
airspace and removing reference to it allows for a simpler description 
of the airspace from the airport.
    Lastly, this action proposes an administrative update to the Class 
D and Class E2 legal descriptions to replace Airport/Facilities 
Directory with Chart Supplement.
    Class D, E2, E4 and E5 airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 
7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

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.
