Temporary final rule with request for comments. AGENCY: ACTION: Since the outset of the COVID–19 national public health emergency, many individuals have experienced barriers that prevent them from timely accessing healthcare. In response to those barriers, we are issuing this rule to temporarily revise our requirement in the Listing of Impairments (listings) that, for purposes of applying several of our musculoskeletal disorder listings, all relevant medical criteria be present simultaneously or ‘‘within a close proximity of time,’’ which we define as being ‘‘within a consecutive 4-month period.’’ While this rule is in effect, we will find that the evidence of a musculoskeletal disorder is present ‘‘within a close proximity of time’’ if the available evidence establishes such a condition within a consecutive 12month period. We expect that this temporary change to our rules will allow us to make findings of disability in appropriate cases in which individuals have experienced barriers to access to healthcare because of the COVID–19 national public health emergency. SUMMARY: DATES: Effective date: This temporary final rule is effective on July 23, 2021. For more information, see SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. Comment date: We invite written comments. Comments must be submitted on or before September 21, 2021. Expiration date: Unless we extend the expiration date by a final rule published in the Federal Register, this temporary final rule will cease to be effective 6 months after the effective date of a determination by the Secretary of Health and Human Services under section 319 of the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. 247d, that the COVID–19 national public health emergency no longer exists. We will publish a document in the Federal Register announcing the expiration date. For more information, see SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. E:\FR\FM\23JYR1.SGM 23JYR1

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 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface of the earth to support IFR operations at Crooked Creek 
Airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 10882; February 23, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-0004 
to establish Class E airspace at Crooked Creek Airport, Crooked Creek, 
AK. Interested parties were invited to

[[Page 38920]]

participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on 
the proposal to the FAA, none were received.
    Class E5 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 designation 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 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace, 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Crooked Creek 
Airport. The Class E airspace is established within a 2 mile radius of 
the airport, excluding that area within the Stony B Military Operations 
Area, and that airspace within 2 miles each side of the 332[deg] 
bearing extending from the 2-mile radius to 8.5 miles northwest of the 
airport. This airspace protects aircraft using the RNAV approach to 
runway 14 and departures until reaching 1,200 feet AGL.
    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

    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 5-6.5a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant the preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
