Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace and Establishment of Class E Airspace Extension; Battle Mountain, NV, 65714-65716 [2019-25542]

Download as PDF 65714 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 230 / Friday, November 29, 2019 / Proposed Rules V. Request for Comments In addition to the above questions outlined, the Board invites comment on all aspects of the proposed rulemaking. VI. Regulatory Procedures khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS A. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) generally requires that, in connection with a notice of proposed rulemaking, an agency prepare and make available for public comment an initial regulatory flexibility analysis that describes the impact of a proposed rule on small entities. A regulatory flexibility analysis is not required, however, if the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (defined for purposes of the RFA to include FICUs with assets less than $100 million) and publishes its certification and a short, explanatory statement in the Federal Register together with the rule. Data currently available to the NCUA is not sufficient to estimate how many small FICUs make residential real estate loans in amounts that fall between the current and proposed thresholds. Therefore, the NCUA cannot estimate how many small entities may be affected by the increased threshold and how significant the reduction in burden may be for such small entities. The NCUA believes, however, that the proposed threshold increase will meaningfully reduce burden for small FICUs. Accordingly, the NCUA certifies that the proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small FICUs. B. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) applies to rulemakings in which an agency by rule creates a new paperwork burden on regulated entities or modifies an existing burden (44 U.S.C. 3507(d)). For purposes of the PRA, a paperwork burden may take the form of a reporting, recordkeeping, or a third-party disclosure requirement, referred to as an information collection. The NCUA may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The proposed rule increases the threshold from $250,000 to $400,000 for residential real estate transactions for which an appraisal is required. Transaction values of less than $400,000 do not require an appraisal, but a written estimate of market value. The information collection requirement of this part is that the FICU retain a record VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:27 Nov 27, 2019 Jkt 250001 of either the appraisal or estimate, whichever applies. Even though the threshold has increased, the proposal will not result in a change in burden. This recordkeeping requirement is cleared under OMB control number 3133–0125. There is no new information collection requirements associated with this proposed rule. C. Executive Order 13132 Executive Order 13132 encourages independent regulatory agencies to consider the impact of their actions on state and local interests. In adherence to fundamental federalism principles, the NCUA, an independent regulatory agency as defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(5), voluntarily complies with the executive order. This rulemaking will not have a substantial direct effect on the states, on the connection between the national government and the states, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. The NCUA has determined that this proposal does not constitute a policy that has federalism implications for purposes of the executive order. D. Assessment of Federal Regulations and Policies on Families The NCUA has determined that this proposed rule will not affect family well-being within the meaning of Section 654 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 1999.

ADDRESSES Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11D, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019. FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace at Battle Mountain Airport, Battle Mountain, NV. The Class E surface area would be adjusted to within 4.2 miles of the airport and the surface area that extends 1 mile both sides of the 218° bearing from the 4.2 mile radius to 7.4 miles southwest of the airport eliminated. A Class E extension to the surface area would be established within 1.3 miles both sides of the 228° bearing, which will provide the required width and alignment for an extension to protect the VOR approach to runway 4 as aircraft descend through 1000 feet AGL. The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL would be modified by establishing airspace 2 miles on both sides of the 48° bearing from the airport to 11 miles northeast, to contain a new RNAV approach to runway 22. To the west, the airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL would be expanded from the current 4.2 mile radius to 7 miles from the airport, between the 265° bearing clockwise to the 32° bearing, to protect departures until they reach 1200 feet AGL. This action would also modify the lateral boundaries of the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL to the southwest to within 16.5 mile radius of the airport from the 204° bearing clockwise to the 266° bearing to protect the VOR Approach to runway 4 as aircraft descend through 1500 feet. It E:\FR\FM\29NOP1.SGM 29NOP1 65716 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 230 / Friday, November 29, 2019 / Proposed Rules would also eliminate the Battle Mountain VORTAC as a reference point in the legal description as it is no longer required. This airspace would support IFR operations at Battle Mountain Airport, Battle Mountain, NV. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, 6004 and 6005 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 E airspace designation 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 proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is noncontroversial, 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. Given this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed 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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11D, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 8, 2019, and effective 
September 15, 2019. FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace at 
Battle Mountain Airport, Battle Mountain, NV. The Class E surface area 
would be adjusted to within 4.2 miles of the airport and the surface 
area that extends 1 mile both sides of the 218[deg] bearing from the 
4.2 mile radius to 7.4 miles southwest of the airport eliminated. A 
Class E extension to the surface area would be established within 1.3 
miles both sides of the 228[deg] bearing, which will provide the 
required width and alignment for an extension to protect the VOR 
approach to runway 4 as aircraft descend through 1000 feet AGL. The 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL would be modified 
by establishing airspace 2 miles on both sides of the 48[deg] bearing 
from the airport to 11 miles northeast, to contain a new RNAV approach 
to runway 22. To the west, the airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
AGL would be expanded from the current 4.2 mile radius to 7 miles from 
the airport, between the 265[deg] bearing clockwise to the 32[deg] 
bearing, to protect departures until they reach 1200 feet AGL. This 
action would also modify the lateral boundaries of the Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet AGL to the southwest to within 16.5 mile 
radius of the airport from the 204[deg] bearing clockwise to the 
266[deg] bearing to protect the VOR Approach to runway 4 as aircraft 
descend through 1500 feet. It

[[Page 65716]]

would also eliminate the Battle Mountain VORTAC as a reference point in 
the legal description as it is no longer required. This airspace would 
support IFR operations at Battle Mountain Airport, Battle Mountain, NV.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, 6004 
and 6005 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 E airspace designation 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 proposed 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. Given this is a routine matter 
that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities
