This action is the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Clarion VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures these airports, as part of the VOR MON Program.

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 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. 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.

FAA Order 7400.11E lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points.

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.

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 airspace, and 
the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
at Sioux Gateway Airport/Brigadier General Bud Day Field, Sioux City,

reporting points.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71:
    Amends the Class D airspace at Sioux Gateway Airport/Brigadier

coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database; removes the cities associated with the airports to comply 
with changes to FAA Order 7400.2M, Procedures for Handling Airspace 
Matters; and updates the outdated term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' 
to ``Chart Supplement'';

Sioux Gateway/Col. Bud Day Field) and geographic coordinates of the 
airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database; removes the 
cities associated with the airports to comply with changes to FAA Order

to ``Chart Supplement'';
    And amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Sioux Gateway Airport/Brigadier General Bud Day 
Field by removing the Sioux City VORTAC and associated extension from 
the airspace legal description; amends the extension northwest of the 
airport to within 3.9 miles (decreased from 4 miles) either side of the 
316[deg] (previously 001[deg]) bearing from the Sioux Gateway/Brig. 
General Bud Day FLD: RWY 13-LOC (previously Sioux Gateway Airport/Col. 
Bud Day Field) extending from the 6.8-mile radius of the Sioux Gateway 
Airport/Brigadier General Bud Day Field to 14.4 miles northwest of the 
Sioux Gateway Airport/Brigadier General Bud Day Field; adds an

decommissioning of the Sioux City 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

[[Page 31107]]

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.
