The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by: Removing the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 34667 the surface at Ambassador Field, Big Sandy, TX, as the instrument procedures at this airfield have been cancelled so the airspace is no longer required; Establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.4-mile radius of Fox Stephens Field-Gilmer Municipal Airport, Gilmer, TX. (This airspace was previously contained within the Big Sandy, TX, airspace legal description.) Establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.4-mile radius of Gladewater Municipal Airport, Gladewater, TX. (This airspace was previously contained within the Big Sandy, TX, airspace legal description.) Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.4-mile (increased from a 6.3-mile) radius of Wood County Airport-Collins Field, Mineola/Quitman, TX, contained within the Mineola, TX, airspace legal description; adding an extension 3.8 miles east and 5.7 miles west of the 182° bearing from Wood County AirportCollins Field extending from the 6.4mile radius to 21.3 miles south of Wood County Airport-Collins Field; removing the city associated with the MineolaWisener Airport, Mineola, TX, and Wood County Airport-Collins Field to comply with changes to FAA Order 7400.2M, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; and updating the name and geographic coordinates of the Wood County Airport-Collins Field (previously Mineola-Quitman Airport) to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.6-mile (increased from a 6.4-mile) radius of Mount Pleasant Regional Airport, Mount Pleasant, TX; removing the Quitman VORTAC and Mount Pleasant RBN and the associated extensions from the airspace legal description, as they are no longer required; and removing Winnsboro Municipal Airport, Winnsboro, TX, from the Mount Pleasant, TX, airspace legal description as the airspace no longer adjoins the Mount Pleasant Regional Airport airspace; and updating the name and geographic coordinates of the Mount Pleasant Regional Airport (previously Mount Pleasant Municipal Airport) to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database.

(This airspace was E:\FR\FM\08JNP1.SGM 08JNP1 34668 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 110 / Monday, June 8, 2020 / Proposed Rules previously contained within the Mount Pleasant, TX, airspace legal description but is being separated as the Winnsboro Municipal Airport airspace and Mount Pleasant Regional airspace no longer adjoin.) This action is the result of airspace reviews caused by the decommissioning of the Quitman VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures 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 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 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS 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.

    Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to within a 6.4-mile (increased from a 6.3-mile) radius of 
Wood County Airport-Collins Field, Mineola/Quitman, TX, contained 
within the Mineola, TX, airspace legal description; adding an extension 
3.8 miles east and 5.7 miles west of the 182[deg] bearing from Wood 
County Airport-Collins Field extending from the 6.4-mile radius to 21.3 
miles south of Wood County Airport-Collins Field; removing the city 
associated with the Mineola-Wisener Airport, Mineola, TX, and Wood 
County Airport-Collins Field to comply with changes to FAA Order 
7400.2M, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; and updating the 
name and geographic coordinates of the Wood County Airport-Collins 
Field (previously Mineola-Quitman Airport) to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.
    Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to within a 6.6-mile (increased from a 6.4-mile) radius of 
Mount Pleasant Regional Airport, Mount Pleasant, TX; removing the 
Quitman VORTAC and Mount Pleasant RBN and the associated extensions 
from the airspace legal description, as they are no longer required; 
and removing Winnsboro Municipal Airport, Winnsboro, TX, from the Mount 
Pleasant, TX, airspace legal description as the airspace no longer 
adjoins the Mount Pleasant Regional Airport airspace; and updating the 
name and geographic coordinates of the Mount Pleasant Regional Airport 
(previously Mount Pleasant Municipal Airport) to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database.
    And establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface within a 6.3-mile radius of Winnsboro Municipal 
Airport, Winnsboro, TX. (This airspace was

[[Page 34668]]

previously contained within the Mount Pleasant, TX, airspace legal 
description but is being separated as the Winnsboro Municipal Airport 
airspace and Mount Pleasant Regional airspace no longer adjoin.)
    This action is the result of airspace reviews caused by the 
decommissioning of the Quitman VOR, which provided navigation 
information for the instrument procedures 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 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.
