Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Tuscaloosa, AL, 33588-33590 [2021-13492]

Download as PDF 33588 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 120 / Friday, June 25, 2021 / Proposed Rules Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 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 designation 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: Proposed rule. AGENCY: In 2020, HUD published a rule titled ‘‘HUD’s Implementation of the Fair Housing Act’s Disparate Impact Standard’’ (‘‘2020 Rule’’). Prior to the effective date of the 2020 rule, the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts issued a preliminary injunction in Massachusetts Fair Housing Center v. HUD, staying HUD’s implementation and enforcement of the rule. Consequently, the 2020 Rule never took effect. After reconsidering the 2020 Rule, HUD is proposing to recodify its previously promulgated rule titled, ‘‘Implementation of the Fair Housing Act’s Discriminatory Effects Standard’’ (‘‘2013 Rule’’), which, as of the date of publication of this Proposed Rule, remains in effect due to the preliminary injunction. HUD believes the 2013 Rule better states Fair Housing Act jurisprudence and is more consistent with the Fair Housing Act’s remedial purposes. SUMMARY: DATES: Comment due date: August 24, 2021.

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 
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 proposes an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Tuscaloosa 
National Airport, Tuscaloosa, AL, as the CRIMSON VORTAC is being 
decommissioned. The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface would be amended by increasing the radius from 7.0 
miles to 9.4 miles, adding an extension 4.0 miles each side of the 
117[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the 9.4-mile radius to 
11.8 miles southeast of the airport and within 2.0 miles each side of 
the of the 041[deg] bearing extending from the 9.4-mile radius to 11.5 
miles northeast of the airport and within 4.0 miles each side of the 
296[deg] bearing extending from the 9.4-mile radius to 10.8 miles 
northwest of the airport and within 2.0 miles each side of the 221[deg] 
bearing extending from the 9.4-mile radius to 11.8 miles southwest of 
the airport. This action would also update name of Tuscaloosa National 
Airport, (formerly Tuscaloosa Municipal Airport) AL.
    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.
    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 proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
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

significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
