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. 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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 qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 5–6.5.a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

Health System-Franciscan Healthcare (previously Saint Francis Medical 
Center) to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database; adds 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; adds 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; adds 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 adds 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.

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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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 qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 5-6.5.a. This airspace action is not expected 
to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
