Revocation, Establishment, and Amendment of Class E Airspace; Multiple Texas Towns, 55366-55368 [2020-19606]

Download as PDF 55366 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 174 / Tuesday, September 8, 2020 / Rules and Regulations this topic suggested that samples should be collected from not only the flower material of the plant, but from a composite sample of the entire hemp plant, including flowers, stems, stalks, and potentially seeds. AMS is considering the inclusion of sampling provisions that allow for ‘‘whole-plant’’ sampling, as well as a specific requirement for the length of a sample (ie. ‘‘two inches’’ or ‘‘20 centimeters’’), and is requesting input on these specific topics. AMS is also requesting input on specific requirements for ‘‘milling’’ or preparation of a hemp sample prior to laboratory analysis. One comment suggested AMS revise regulations conform more closely to the practices recommended by AOAC, particularly those methods pertaining to grinding specifications (2018.11 2) and moisture content (930.04 3), or consider the protocols developed by the Division of Regulatory Services within the University of Kentucky’s College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, specifically SOP#HMP–LB–001 4 (Procedures for Receiving, Preparing and Releasing Hemp Samples), and SOP#HMP–LB–002 5 (Procedures for Measuring D–9 THC Content in Industrial Hemp by Gas Chromatography with Flame Ionization Detection). jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 10: Sampling Methodology— Homogenous Composition, Frequency, and Volume The IFR requires that sampling be conducted to ensure a representative sample of each lot. As part of this requirement, the number of samples collected must be sufficient so that, at a confidence level of 95 percent, no more than one percent of the plants in the lot would exceed the acceptable hemp THC level. The sampling requirements in the IFR do not take into account differences between varietals or different end uses of hemp plants. Many commenters explained that the sampling requirements imposed by the IFR are expensive, burdensome, and nearly impossible to meet by State Departments of Agriculture and Tribal governments. Based on this input, AMS is considering several changes to the sampling requirements; these changes would modify the number of samples required to be collected, and/or provide for the States and Tribes to establish sampling requirements based on enduse. 2 AOAC Official Method of Analysis 2018.11. 3 AOAC Official Method of Analysis 930.04. 4 See https://www.kyagr.com/marketing/hemplaw.html. 5 See: https://www.kyagr.com/marketing/hemplaw.html. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:51 Sep 04, 2020 Jkt 250001 AMS is considering establishing a specific number of plants to be sampled from every lot, regardless of the lot size, and is requesting input on how to establish these requirements. Specifically, AMS is requesting input on how to potentially establish a fixed sliding scale (for example, a lot of fewer than 10 acres requires a sample of five plants; a lot of between 10 and 20 acres requires six plants; etc.,) rather than leaving those calculations to each State and Tribe. AMS is also considering establishment of different sampling and testing requirements for hemp based on end use (i.e., risk-based.) AMS further seeks stakeholder comment on potential risk-based methods for hemp lot sampling for differing varietals intended for fiber, grain, seed, or biomass for extract. Methodology discussed should show quantitative and qualitative data and estimate potential risk levels (i.e., the expected likelihood of growing noncompliant hemp) for different varietals based on the plant’s intended end use. 11: Sampling Agents The IFR requires that all hemp production must be sampled and tested for THC concentration levels, and that samples must be collected by a USDAapproved sampling agent or a Federal, State, or local law enforcement agent authorized by USDA to collect samples. Currently, sampling agents are required to complete a basic training module offered by AMS. AMS is now soliciting comment on the potential need for more rigorous training and/or certification requirements for sampling agents. For example, AMS is interested in whether sampling agents should be required to complete an online training module administered by AMS and pass an examination. Or, alternatively, whether States and Tribes should be able to develop and require the completion of specific training programs for sampling agents under their respective State or Tribal hemp programs. AMS is specifically requesting input on the content of sampling agent training, the frequency with which training should occur, and whether AMS should maintain a national list of trained sampling agents on the AMS website. The comments should clearly explain why additional requirements may be necessary and suggest what those additional requirements may entail. 12. DEA Laboratory Registration The IFR requires that laboratory testing of hemp for the purpose of determining compliance under the U.S. Domestic Hemp Product Program be conducted by laboratories appropriately PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 registered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). On February 27, 2020, USDA announced guidance 6 delaying the requirement to use laboratories registered with DEA for testing (7 CFR 990.3(a)(3)(i) and 990.26(e)). Under this guidance, testing can be conducted by labs that are not yet DEA-registered until the final rule is published, or Oct. 31, 2021, whichever comes first. This change was intended to allow additional time to increase DEA-registered analytical lab capacity. AMS is now requesting additional input on whether the DEA laboratory registration requirement should be permanently removed, and if so, how lab disposal requirements of non-compliant hemp samples will adhere to the requirements of the Controlled Substances Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it revokes the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Ambassador Field, Big Sandy, TX; establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Fox Stephens Field-Gilmer Municipal Airport, Gilmer, TX; Gladewater Municipal Airport, Gladewater, TX; and Winnsboro Municipal Airport, Winnsboro, TX; and amends the Class E airspace upward from 700 above the surface at Wood County Airport-Collins Field, Mineola/Quitman, TX, contained within the Mineola, TX, airspace legal description, and at Mount Pleasant Regional Airport, Mount Pleasant, TX, to support instrument flight rule operations at these airports.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described 
in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, 
the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it revokes the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Ambassador Field, Big Sandy, TX; establishes Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Fox 
Stephens Field-Gilmer Municipal Airport, Gilmer, TX; Gladewater 
Municipal Airport, Gladewater, TX; and Winnsboro Municipal Airport, 
Winnsboro, TX; and amends the Class E airspace upward from 700 above 
the surface at Wood County Airport-Collins Field, Mineola/Quitman, TX, 
contained within the Mineola, TX, airspace legal description, and at 
Mount Pleasant Regional Airport, Mount Pleasant, TX, to support 
instrument flight rule operations at these airports.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (85 FR 35206; June 8, 2020) for Docket No. FAA-2020-0551 to 
revoke the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Ambassador Field, Big Sandy, TX; and establish and amend 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at 
several Texas airports. Interested parties were invited to participate 
in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the 
proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.
    Subsequent to publication of the NPRM, the FAA discovered 
typographical errors in the geographic coordinates of Gladewater 
Municipal Airport, Gladewater, TX, (``long. 94[deg]58'19'' W'' should 
be ``long. 94[deg]58'18'' W'') and Mount Pleasant Regional Airport, 
Mount Pleasant, TX (``lat. 33[deg]06'49'' N'' should be ``lat. 
33[deg]05'49'' N''). These errors are corrected in this action. 
Additionally, it was discovered that the name of Mineola Wisener Field 
(previously Mineola-Wisener Airport), Mineola, TX, should have been 
updated. As this update does not affect the airspace dimensions 
contained in the proposal, this omission is included in this action.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 
2020, 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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.11E, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 
2020. FAA Order 7400.11E is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11E lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71:
    Removes the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
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;
    Establishes 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.);
    Establishes 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.);
    Amends 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; adds 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; removes the cities 
associated with the Mineola Wisener Field, Mineola, TX, and Wood County 
Airport-Collins Field to comply with changes to FAA Order 7400.2M, 
Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; updates the name and 
geographic coordinates of the Wood County Airport-Collins Field 
(previously Mineola-Quitman Airport) to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database; and updates the name of Mineola Wisener Field 
(previously Mineola-Wisener Airport) to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database;
    Amends 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; removes the 
Quitman VORTAC and Mount Pleasant RBN and the associated extensions 
from the airspace legal description, as they are no longer required; 
removes 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 updates 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 establishes 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 previously contained within 
the Mount Pleasant, TX, airspace legal description but is being 
separated as the Winnsboro Municipal Airport airspace and Mount

[[Page 55368]]

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.
    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 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
