VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:36 Aug 28, 2020 Jkt 250001 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 Truckee-Tahoe Airport. The proposal would reduce the dimensions of the Class E airspace areas, designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface airspace area. The airspace areas would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface within 1 mile each side of the 017° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile radius of the airport to 9.7 miles north of the airport; and within 1.2 miles west and 0.9 miles east of the 316° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2mile radius of the airport to 8.3 miles northwest of Truckee-Tahoe Airport. This action also proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. The action proposes to properly size the airspace areas north of the airport and add an area over the airport and an area west of the airport. These areas are designed to contain IFR departures to 1,200 feet above the surface and IFR arrivals descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. These airspace areas would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 4.2-mile radius of the airport, and within 2 miles each side of the 018° bearing from the airport, extending from 9.7 miles to 11.6 miles north of the airport, and within 1.1 miles each side of the 266° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile radius to 13.5 miles west of the airport, and within 2.7 miles west and 1.9 miles east of the 321° bearing from the airport, extending from 8.3 miles to 14.8 miles northwest of the airport, and within an area beginning at 4.2 miles on the 324° bearing from the airport, then to 6.5 miles on the 324° bearing from the airport, then clockwise within a 6.5mile radius of the airport to the 008° bearing from the airport, then along the 008° bearing to 4.2 miles, then counterclockwise within a 4.2-mile PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 radius of the airport to the 324° bearing northwest of Truckee-Tahoe Airport. Lastly, this action proposes an administrative amendment to all of the airspace’s legal descriptions for Truckee-Tahoe Airport. To match the FAA aeronautical database, the airport’s geographical coordinates should be updated to lat. 39°19′12″ N, long. 120°08′23″ W. 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 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.

AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve, through parallel processing, a draft source-specific State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the State of North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Air Quality (DAQ) through a letter dated June 24, 2020. North Carolina’s June 24, 2020, draft source-specific SIP revision requests that EPA incorporate into the SIP more stringent sulfur dioxide (SO2) permit limits than those currently contained in the SIP for the Blue Ridge Paper Products, LLC (also known as BRPP) facility located in the Beaverdam Township Area of Haywood County, North Carolina. Specifically, EPA is proposing to approve, into the SIP, specific SO2 permit limits and associated operating restrictions, monitoring, recordkeeping, reporting (MRR) and testing compliance SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 53715 requirements established in a BRPP title V operating permit as permanent and enforceable SO2 control measures. North Carolina submitted these limits to support its recommendation that EPA designate the Beaverdam Township Area as ‘‘attainment/unclassifiable’’ under the 2010 primary SO2 national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS or standard) (also referred to as the 2010 1hour SO2 NAAQS). The purpose of this rulemaking is not to take action on whether these SO2 emissions limits are adequate for EPA to designate the Beaverdam Township Area as attainment under the 2010 1-hour SO2 NAAQS. Instead, EPA will determine the air quality status and designate remaining undesignated areas for the 2010 1-hour SO2 NAAQS, including the Beaverdam Township Area, in a separate action. This proposed SIP approval does not prejudge that future designation action. DATES: Comments must be received on or before September 30, 2020.

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 
Truckee-Tahoe Airport. The proposal would reduce the dimensions of the 
Class E airspace areas, designated as an extension to a Class D or 
Class E surface airspace area. The airspace areas would be described as 
follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface within 1 mile 
each side of the 017[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 
4.2-mile radius of the airport to 9.7 miles north of the airport; and 
within 1.2 miles west and 0.9 miles east of the 316[deg] bearing from 
the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile radius of the airport to 8.3 
miles northwest of Truckee-Tahoe Airport.
    This action also proposes to amend Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface. The action proposes to properly 
size the airspace areas north of the airport and add an area over the 
airport and an area west of the airport. These areas are designed to 
contain IFR departures to 1,200 feet above the surface and IFR arrivals 
descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. These airspace areas 
would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 700 
feet above the surface within a 4.2-mile radius of the airport, and 
within 2 miles each side of the 018[deg] bearing from the airport, 
extending from 9.7 miles to 11.6 miles north of the airport, and within 
1.1 miles each side of the 266[deg] bearing from the airport, extending 
from the 4.2-mile radius to 13.5 miles west of the airport, and within 
2.7 miles west and 1.9 miles east of the 321[deg] bearing from the 
airport, extending from 8.3 miles to 14.8 miles northwest of the 
airport, and within an area beginning at 4.2 miles on the 324[deg] 
bearing from the airport, then to 6.5 miles on the 324[deg] bearing 
from the airport, then clockwise within a 6.5-mile radius of the 
airport to the 008[deg] bearing from the airport, then along the 
008[deg] bearing to 4.2 miles, then counterclockwise within a 4.2-mile 
radius of the airport to the 324[deg] bearing northwest of Truckee-
Tahoe Airport.
    Lastly, this action proposes an administrative amendment to all of 
the airspace's legal descriptions for Truckee-Tahoe Airport. To match 
the FAA aeronautical database, the airport's geographical coordinates 
should be updated to lat. 39[deg]19'12'' N, long. 120[deg]08'23'' W.
    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 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.
