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 proposes an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to establish Class 
E surface airspace for East Hampton Airport, East Hampton, NY, 
providing the controlled airspace required to support aircraft landing 
and departing in IFR conditions at this airport. In addition, this 
action would amend Class D airspace by decreasing the radius to 4.2 
miles (from 4.8) and the ceiling to 2,000 feet MSL (from 2,500) and 
replacing the outdated term Airport/Facility Directory with the term 
Chart Supplement in the airport description.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 
5000 and 6002, 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.
    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 
certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will 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.
