The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by: E:\FR\FM\10FEP1.SGM 10FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 27 / Monday, February 10, 2020 / Proposed Rules jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.5-mile radius (decreased from a 9.6-mile radius) of Reedsburg Municipal Airport, Reedsburg, WI; amending the extension to the south of the airport to extend to 10.8 miles (increased from 10.5 miles); adding an extension 2 miles each side of the 330° bearing from TUSME extending from the 6.5-mile radius of Reedsburg Municipal Airport to 5.6 miles northwest of TUSME; and updating the name and geographic coordinates of Baraboo-Wisconsin Dells Regional Airport (previously Baraboo Wisconsin Dells Airport), Baraboo, WI, to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; And amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.7-mile radius (increased from a 6.3-mile radius) of Boscobel Airport, Boscobel, WI; adding an extension 1 mile each side of the 247° bearing from the airport extending from the 6.7-mile radius to 6.8 miles southwest of the airport; and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. These actions are the result of airspace reviews caused by the decommissioning of the Lone Rock VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of the VOR MON Program. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 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.

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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:29 Feb 07, 2020 Jkt 250001 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.

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Baraboo and Boscobel, WI

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend the Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Reedsburg Municipal Airport, 
Reedsburg, WI, contained within the Baraboo, WI, airspace legal 
description, and Boscobel Airport, Boscobel, WI. The FAA is proposing 
these actions as the result of airspace reviews caused by the 
decommissioning of the Lone Rock VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) 
navigation aid, which provided navigation information for the 
instrument procedures at these airports, as part of the VOR Minimum 
Operational Network (MON) Program. The name and geographic coordinates 
of Baraboo-Wisconsin Dells Regional Airport, Baraboo, WI, and 
geographic coordinates of Boscobel Airport 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 at these airports.

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:

[[Page 7475]]

    Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to within a 6.5-mile radius (decreased from a 9.6-mile 
radius) of Reedsburg Municipal Airport, Reedsburg, WI; amending the 
extension to the south of the airport to extend to 10.8 miles 
(increased from 10.5 miles); adding an extension 2 miles each side of 
the 330[deg] bearing from TUSME extending from the 6.5-mile radius of 
Reedsburg Municipal Airport to 5.6 miles northwest of TUSME; and 
updating the name and geographic coordinates of Baraboo-Wisconsin Dells 
Regional Airport (previously Baraboo Wisconsin Dells Airport), Baraboo, 
WI, to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    And amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface to within a 6.7-mile radius (increased from a 6.3-
mile radius) of Boscobel Airport, Boscobel, WI; adding an extension 1 
mile each side of the 247[deg] bearing from the airport extending from 
the 6.7-mile radius to 6.8 miles southwest of the airport; and updating 
the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.
    These actions are the result of airspace reviews caused by the 
decommissioning of the Lone Rock VOR, which provided navigation 
information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of 
the VOR MON Program.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 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 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.
