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. Federal Aviation Administration Lists of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 AGENCY: 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, the Class E surface area, and the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface and establishes a Class E airspace area designated as an extension to a Class D and Class E surface area at Sawyer International Airport, Marquette, MI, to support instrument flight rule operations at this airport.

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, the Class E surface area, and the 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface and 
establishes a Class E airspace area designated as an extension to a 
Class D and Class E surface area at Sawyer International Airport, 
Marquette, MI, to support instrument flight rule operations at this 
airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (85 FR 67320; October 22, 2020) for Docket No. FAA-2020-0880 
to amend the Class D and Class E airspace and establish a Class E 
airspace area designated as an extension to Class D and Class E surface 
areas at Sawyer International Airport, Marquette, MI. 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,

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71:
    Amends the Class D airspace at Sawyer International Airport, 
Marquette, MI, by updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database; removes the city 
associated with the airport to comply with changes to FAA Order 
7400.2M, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; and replaces the 
outdated term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with ``Chart Supplement'';
    Amends the Class E surface airspace at Sawyer International Airport 
by updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with 
the FAA's aeronautical database; removes the city associated with the 
airport to comply with changes to FAA Order 7400.2M; and replaces the 
outdated term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with ``Chart Supplement'';
    Establishes a Class E airspace area designated as an extension to 
Class D and Class E surface areas within 2.4 miles each side of the 
022[deg] bearing from the Sawyer VOR extending from the 4.6-mile radius 
of the Sawyer International Airport to 7 miles north of the Sawyer VOR;
    And amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Sawyer International Airport by updating the 
geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database; and removes the airspace extending upward from 
1,200 feet above the surface and the exclusionary language as they are 
no longer required.
    This action is the result of an airspace review caused by the 
decommissioning of the Iron Mountain VOR, which provided navigation 
information for the instrument procedures this airport, 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

    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.
