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 Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 71 by modifying the Class D airspace at Helena Regional Airport, Helena, MT. The proposal would modify the Class D airspace extensions east and west of the airport to properly contain IFR departures to 700 feet above the surface. The airspace area would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 6,400 feet within a 4.4mile radius of the airport, and within 2 miles each side of the 091° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 5.2 miles east of the airport, and within 2 miles each side of 292° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 5.8 miles west of Helena Regional Airport. This Class D airspace area is effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement. This action also proposes to modify Class E airspace, designated as a surface area, to be coincident with the new Class D dimensions. The airspace area would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface within a 4.4-mile radius of the airport, and within 2 miles each side of the 091° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 5.2 miles east of the airport, and within 2 miles each side of 292° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 5.8 miles west of Helena Regional Airport. This Class E airspace area is effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement. Additionally, this action proposes to establish Class E airspace, designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area. The proposed area is VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 Sep 22, 2020 Jkt 250001 designed to contain IFR aircraft descending below 1,000 feet above the surface. This airspace area would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface within an area bounded by a line beginning at lat. 46°34′18.57″ N, long. 111°51′30.319″ W, to lat. 46°38′5.89″ N, long. 111°51′24.53″ W, to lat. 46°37′12.53″ N, long. 111°45′24.67″ W, to lat. 46°32′22.72″ N, long. 111°46′31.44″ W, to lat. 46°33′24.13″ N, long. 111°54′20.01″ W, then counterclockwise along the 4.4-mile radius of the airport to lat. 46°34′20.01″ N, long. 111°53′22.03″ W, then to the point of beginning, and within an area bounded by a line beginning at lat. 46°38′39.95″ N, long. 112°06′47.50″ W, to lat. 46°36′47.49″ N, long. 112°07′53.41″ W, to lat. 46°37′22.52″ N, long. 112°11′37.80″ W, to lat. 46°39′19.40″ N, long. 112°10′58.64″ W, then to the point of beginning west of Helena Regional Airport. Further, this action proposes to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. The action proposes to properly size the airspace to contain IFR departures to 1,200 feet above the surface and IFR arrivals descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. This airspace area would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within an 8.3-mile radius of the airport, and within 1 mile each side of the 103° bearing from the airport, extending from the 8.3-mile radius to 10.7 miles east of the airport, and within 1.8 miles each side of the 281° bearing from the airport, extending from the 8.3-mile radius to 18.1 miles west of Helena Regional Airport. This action also proposes to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface to properly contain IFR aircraft transitioning to/ from the terminal and en route environments. This airspace area would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface within a 36-mile radius of Helena Regional Airport. The action proposes to update the airport’s geographic coordinates to match the FAA database. The coordinates should read lat. 46°36′24″ N, long. 111°59′0.0″ W. This action also proposes to remove the Helena VORTAC and all references to the VORTAC from the Class D, E2, and E5 legal descriptions. The navigational aid is not needed to define the airspace. Removal of the navigational aid allows the airspace to be defined from a single reference point which simplifies how the airspace is described. Additionally, the term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ in PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 59701 the last sentence of the Class D and Class E2 airspace legal descriptions is outdated and should be changed to ‘‘Chart Supplement’’. Class D, E2, E4, and E5 airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005, respectively, 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. 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.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (‘‘Commission’’ or ‘‘CFTC’’) is proposing to amend the margin requirements for uncleared swaps for swap dealers (‘‘SDs’’) and major swap participants (‘‘MSPs’’) for which there is no prudential regulator (‘‘CFTC Margin Rule’’). In particular, the Commission is proposing to revise the calculation method for determining whether certain entities come within the scope of the initial margin (‘‘IM’’) requirements under the CFTC Margin Rule beginning on September 1, 2021, and the timing for compliance with the IM requirements after the end of the phased compliance schedule. The proposed amendment would align certain aspects of the CFTC Margin Rule with the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and Board of the International Organization of Securities Commissions’ (‘‘BSBS/IOSCO’’) Framework for margin requirements for SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 non-centrally cleared derivatives (‘‘BCBS/IOSCO Framework’’). The Commission is also proposing to allow SDs and MSPs subject to the CFTC Margin Rule to use the risk-based model calculation of IM of a counterparty that is a CFTC-registered SD or MSP to determine the amount of IM to be collected from the counterparty and to determine whether the IM threshold amount for the exchange of IM has been exceeded such that documentation concerning the collection, posting, and custody of IM would be required. DATES: With respect to the proposed amendments, comments must be received on or before October 23, 2020.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend 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

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations Part 71 by modifying the Class D airspace at Helena 
Regional Airport, Helena, MT. The proposal would modify the Class D 
airspace extensions east and west of the airport to properly contain

be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the 
surface to and including 6,400 feet within a 4.4-mile radius of the 
airport, and within 2 miles each side of the 091[deg] bearing from the 
airport, extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 5.2 miles east of the 
airport, and within 2 miles each side of 292[deg] bearing from the 
airport, extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 5.8 miles west of Helena 
Regional Airport. This Class D airspace area is effective during the 
specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. 
The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published 
in the Chart Supplement.
    This action also proposes to modify Class E airspace, designated as 
a surface area, to be coincident with the new Class D dimensions. The 
airspace area would be described as follows: That airspace extending 
upward from the surface within a 4.4-mile radius of the airport, and 
within 2 miles each side of the 091[deg] bearing from the airport, 
extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 5.2 miles east of the airport, 
and within 2 miles each side of 292[deg] bearing from the airport, 
extending from the 4.4-mile radius to 5.8 miles west of Helena Regional 
Airport. This Class E airspace area is effective during the specific 
dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The 
effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in 
the Chart Supplement.
    Additionally, this action proposes to establish Class E airspace, 
designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area. The 
proposed area is designed to contain IFR aircraft descending below 
1,000 feet above the surface. This airspace area would be described as 
follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface within an area 
bounded by a line beginning at lat. 46[deg]34'18.57'' N, long. 
111[deg]51'30.319'' W, to lat. 46[deg]38'5.89'' N, long. 
111[deg]51'24.53'' W, to lat. 46[deg]37'12.53'' N, long. 
111[deg]45'24.67'' W, to lat. 46[deg]32'22.72'' N, long. 
111[deg]46'31.44'' W, to lat. 46[deg]33'24.13'' N, long. 
111[deg]54'20.01'' W, then counter-clockwise along the 4.4-mile radius 
of the airport to lat. 46[deg]34'20.01'' N, long. 111[deg]53'22.03'' W, 
then to the point of beginning, and within an area bounded by a line 
beginning at lat. 46[deg]38'39.95'' N, long. 112[deg]06'47.50'' W, to 
lat. 46[deg]36'47.49'' N, long. 112[deg]07'53.41'' W, to lat. 
46[deg]37'22.52'' N, long. 112[deg]11'37.80'' W, to lat. 
46[deg]39'19.40'' N, long. 112[deg]10'58.64'' W, then to the point of 
beginning west of Helena Regional Airport.
    Further, this action proposes to modify Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface. The action proposes to properly 
size the airspace to contain IFR departures to 1,200 feet above the 
surface and IFR arrivals descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. 
This airspace area would be described as follows: That airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within an 8.3-mile 
radius of the airport, and within 1 mile each side of the 103[deg] 
bearing from the airport, extending from the 8.3-mile radius to 10.7 
miles east of the airport, and within 1.8 miles each side of the 
281[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 8.3-mile radius 
to 18.1 miles west of Helena Regional Airport.
    This action also proposes to modify Class E airspace extending 
upward from 1,200 feet above the surface to properly contain IFR 
aircraft transitioning to/from the terminal and en route environments. 
This airspace area would be described as follows: That airspace 
extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface within a 36-mile 
radius of Helena Regional Airport.
    The action proposes to update the airport's geographic coordinates 
to match the FAA database. The coordinates should read lat. 
46[deg]36'24'' N, long. 111[deg]59'0.0'' W. This action also proposes 
to remove the Helena VORTAC and all references to the VORTAC from the 
Class D, E2, and E5 legal descriptions. The navigational aid is not 
needed to define the airspace. Removal of the navigational aid allows 
the airspace to be defined from a single reference point which 
simplifies how the airspace is described. Additionally, the term 
``Airport/Facility Directory'' in the last sentence of the Class D and 
Class E2 airspace legal descriptions is outdated and should be changed 
to ``Chart Supplement''.
    Class D, E2, E4, and E5 airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005, respectively, 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.
    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.
