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.

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 Lake Lawn Airport, Delavan, WI, due to the cancellation of the instrument procedures at this airport. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (85 FR 49609; August 14, 2020) for Docket No. FAA–2020–0734 to revoke the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Lake Lawn Airport, Delavan, WI.

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 amends the Class D airspace, Class E surface airspace, Class E 
airspace area designated as an extension to Class D and Class E surface 
airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Waterloo Regional Airport, IA, to support instrument flight 
rule operations at this airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (85 FR 49607; August 14, 2020) for Docket No. FAA-2020-0708 to 
amend the Class D and Class E airspace at Waterloo Regional Airport, 
Waterloo, IA. Interested parties were invited to participate in this 
rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the 
FAA. No comments were received.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
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 D and 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:
    Amends the Class D airspace at Waterloo Regional Airport, Waterloo, 
IA, by updating the name (previously Waterloo Municipal Airport) and 
geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database; and replaces the outdated term ``Airport/
Facility Directory'' with ``Chart Supplement'';
    Amends the Class E surface area Waterloo Regional Airport by 
updating the name (previously Waterloo Municipal Airport) and 
geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database; and replaces the outdated term ``Airport/
Facility Directory'' with ``Chart Supplement'';
    Amends the Class E airspace area designated as an extension to 
Class D and Class E surface airspace at Waterloo Regional Airport by 
removing the extensions east, south, and southwest of the VORTAC, as 
they are no longer needed; adds an extension within 1 mile each side of 
the 128[deg] bearing from the Waterloo Regional: RWY 12-LOC extending 
from the 4.3-mile radius of the Waterloo Regional Airport to 4.4 miles 
southeast of the Waterloo Regional Airport; amends the extension north 
of the VOR/DME to the 356[deg] radial (previously 351[deg] radial); and 
updates the name and geographic coordinates of the Waterloo Regional 
Airport (previously Waterloo Municipal Airport) and the name of the 
Waterloo VOR/DME (previously Waterloo VORTAC) to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database;
    And amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Waterloo Regional Airport by removing the 
extension southeast of the airport, as it is no longer needed; adds an 
extension 2.4 miles each side of the 313[deg] radial of the Waterloo 
VOR/DME extending from the 6.8-mile radius of the Waterloo Regional 
Airport to 7 miles northwest of the Waterloo VOR/DME; adds an extension 
2.4 miles each side of the 356[deg] radial of the Waterloo VOR/DME 
extending from the 6.8-mile radius of the Waterloo Regional Airport to 
7 miles northwest of the Waterloo VOR/DME; and updates the name and 
geographic coordinates of the Waterloo Regional Airport (previously 
Waterloo Municipal Airport) and the name of the Waterloo VOR/DME 
(previously Waterloo VORTAC) to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database.
    This action is due to an airspace review caused by the closure of 
runway 6/24 at Waterloo Regional Airport.
    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

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 5-6.5.a. This airspace action is not expected 
to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
