Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 141 / Tuesday, July 27, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 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 and establishes Class E airspace in York, PA, to support instrument flight rule operations at this airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (86 FR 24795, May 10, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2021–0119 to amend Class E surface airspace at York Airport and establish Class E airspace for York Airport and Wellspan York Hospital Heliport, to accommodate area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures (SIAPs) serving this airport. 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 Paragraphs 6002 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 E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with RULES1 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 routes, and reporting points. The Rule The FAA amends 14 CFR part 71 by amending Class E surface airspace at York Airport, York, PA. An airspace evaluation of the area determined the additional airspace is necessary to VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:17 Jul 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 accommodate operations at the airport. This action also updates the name of York Airport (formerly York County Airport). This action also establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at York Airport and Wellspan York Hospital Heliport to accommodate new area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures serving the heliport. Subsequent to publication of the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, the FAA found the spelling of Wellspan York Hospital Heliport was incorrect. This action corrects the error. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area. 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. 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 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 5–6.5a. 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.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is confirming the interim final rule published on May 24, 2021, updating regulations governing Tribal Energy Resource Agreements (TERAs) between the Secretary of the Interior (Secretary) and Indian Tribes. The interim final rule added the statutory requirement that that any application for a Tribal Energy Development Organization (TEDO) be submitted by the Tribe and corrected cross-references. DATES: This rule is effective July 27, 2021. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Appel, Director, Office of Regulatory Affairs & Collaborative Action, (202) 273–4680; elizabeth.appel@bia.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with RULES1 I. Summary of Rule This final rule updates TERA regulations that BIA published on December 18, 2019 (84 FR 69602), under the authority of the Indian Tribal Energy Development and Self-Determination Act of 2005, as amended by the Indian Tribal Energy Development and SelfDetermination Act Amendments of 2017, 25 U.S.C. 3501–3504, Public Law 115–325, and 25 U.S.C. 2 and 9. The rule addressed the requirements of the Indian Tribal Energy Development and Self-Determination Act Amendments of 2017 (2017 Amendments), including establishing a process and criteria for TEDOs to obtain certification from the Secretary so that they may enter into leases, business agreements, and rightsof-way with Tribes on Tribal land without Secretarial approval. See Section 103(b) of the 2017 Amendments. The 2019 regulation stated at § 224.202 that a TEDO must submit an application. The statute, however, states that the Tribe submits the application for certification of a TEDO. See 25 U.S.C. 3504(h)(1). This final rule corrects the regulation at § 224.202 to provide that a Tribe must submit the application. This final rule also corrects typographical errors in the crossreferences to paragraphs in § 224.53, as follows: • In paragraph (a)(3), the crossreference is corrected to be paragraph (b), rather than paragraph (c); • In paragraph (a)(5), the crossreference is corrected to be paragraph (c) rather than paragraph (d); and • In paragraph (b), the cross reference is corrected to be paragraph (a)(3) rather than paragraph (a)(6). VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:17 Jul 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 On May 24, 2021 (86 FR 27806), BIA published an interim final rule making these changes and announced the opportunity to comment by June 23, 2021. BIA received no comments on the interim final rule, so this final rule adopts the interim final rule as published without change. II. Procedural Requirements A. Regulatory Planning and Review (E.O. 12866, 13563) Executive Order (E.O.) 12866 provides that the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will review all significant rules. OIRA has determined that this rule is not significant. E.O. 13563 reaffirms the principles of E.O. 12866 while calling for improvements in the Nation’s regulatory system to promote predictability, to reduce uncertainty, and to use the best, most innovative, and least burdensome tools for achieving regulatory ends. The E.O. directs agencies to consider regulatory approaches that reduce burdens and maintain flexibility and freedom of choice for the public where these approaches are relevant, feasible, and consistent with regulatory objectives. E.O. 13563 emphasizes further that regulations must be based on the best available science and that the rulemaking process must allow for public participation and an open exchange of ideas. We have developed this rule in a manner consistent with these requirements. B. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Department of the Interior certifies that this rule will not have a significant economic effect on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). C. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. This rule: (a) Does not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more; (b) Will not cause a major increase in costs or prices for consumers, individual industries, Federal, State, or local government agencies, or geographic regions; and (c) Does not have significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of U.S.-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises because this rule makes minor corrections. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act This rule does not impose an unfunded mandate on State, local, or Tribal governments or the private sector of more than $100 million per year. The rule does not have a monetarily significant or unique effect on State, local, or Tribal governments or the private sector. A statement containing the information required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) is not required. E. Takings (E.O. 12630) This rule does not affect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630 because this rule does not affect individual property rights protected by the Fifth Amendment or involve a compensable ‘‘taking.’’ A takings implication assessment is not required. F. Federalism (E.O. 13132) Under the criteria in section 1 of Executive Order 13132, this rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement because the rule affects only agreements entered into by Tribes and the Department. A federalism summary impact statement is not required. G. Civil Justice Reform (E.O. 12988) This rule complies with the requirements of Executive Order 12988. Specifically, this rule: (a) Meets the criteria of section 3(a) requiring that all regulations be reviewed to eliminate errors and ambiguity and be written to minimize litigation; and (b) Meets the criteria of section 3(b)(2) requiring that all regulations be written in clear language and contain clear legal standards. H. Consultation With Indian Tribes (E.O. 13175) The Department of the Interior strives to strengthen its government-togovernment relationship with Indian Tribes through a commitment to consultation with Indian Tribes and recognition of their right to selfgovernance and Tribal sovereignty. We have evaluated this rule under the Department’s consultation policy and under the criteria in Executive Order 13175 and have determined that it does not have substantial direct effects on federally recognized Indian Tribes because the Department consulted on substantive requirements of the rule that is in effect, and this rule merely makes minor corrections to that substantive rule.

Between January 1, 2021, and July 20, 2021, the waterside security zone around the 141 bridge has been requested fourteen times. In response to these frequent requests the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on April 5, 2021, titled ‘‘Security Zone; Christina River, Newport, DE’’ (86 FR 17565). There we stated why we issued the NPRM and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to recurring transists of persons protected by the USSS across the 141 bridge in Newport, Delaware. During the comment period that ended May 5, 2021, we received one comment. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This rule must be immediately effective to guard against potential acts of terrorism, sabotage, subversive acts, accidents, or other causes of a similar nature. III.

This rule safeguards the lives of persons protected by the Secret Service, and of the general public, by enhancing the safety and security of navigable waters of the United States during USSS protectee transits over the route 141 bridge over the Christina River near Newport, Delaware. The Coast Guard will activate the security zone when requested by the USSS for the protection of persons the USSS protects under 18 U.S.C. 3056 or pursuant to Presidential memorandum.

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is confirming the interim 
final rule published on May 24, 2021, updating regulations governing 
Tribal Energy Resource Agreements (TERAs) between the Secretary of the 
Interior (Secretary) and Indian Tribes. The interim final rule added 
the statutory requirement that that any application for a Tribal Energy 
Development Organization (TEDO) be submitted by the Tribe and corrected 
cross-references.

DATES: This rule is effective July 27, 2021.

Regulatory Affairs & Collaborative Action, (202) 273-4680;

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Summary of Rule

    This final rule updates TERA regulations that BIA published on 
December 18, 2019 (84 FR 69602), under the authority of the Indian 
Tribal Energy Development and Self-Determination Act of 2005, as 
amended by the Indian Tribal Energy Development and Self-Determination 
Act Amendments of 2017, 25 U.S.C. 3501-3504, Public Law 115-325, and 25 
U.S.C. 2 and 9. The rule addressed the requirements of the Indian 
Tribal Energy Development and Self-Determination Act Amendments of 2017 
(2017 Amendments), including establishing a process and criteria for 
TEDOs to obtain certification from the Secretary so that they may enter 
into leases, business agreements, and rights-of-way with Tribes on 
Tribal land without Secretarial approval. See Section 103(b) of the 
2017 Amendments.
    The 2019 regulation stated at Sec.  224.202 that a TEDO must submit 
an application. The statute, however, states that the Tribe submits the 
application for certification of a TEDO. See 25 U.S.C. 3504(h)(1). This 
final rule corrects the regulation at Sec.  224.202 to provide that a 
Tribe must submit the application.
    This final rule also corrects typographical errors in the cross-
references to paragraphs in Sec.  224.53, as follows:
     In paragraph (a)(3), the cross-reference is corrected to 
be paragraph (b), rather than paragraph (c);
     In paragraph (a)(5), the cross-reference is corrected to 
be paragraph (c) rather than paragraph (d); and
     In paragraph (b), the cross reference is corrected to be 
paragraph (a)(3) rather than paragraph (a)(6).
    On May 24, 2021 (86 FR 27806), BIA published an interim final rule 
making these changes and announced the opportunity to comment by June 
23, 2021. BIA received no comments on the interim final rule, so this 
final rule adopts the interim final rule as published without change.

II. Procedural Requirements

A. Regulatory Planning and Review (E.O. 12866, 13563)

    Executive Order (E.O.) 12866 provides that the Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) at the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) will review all significant rules. OIRA has determined 
that this rule is not significant.
    E.O. 13563 reaffirms the principles of E.O. 12866 while calling for 
improvements in the Nation's regulatory system to promote 
predictability, to reduce uncertainty, and to use the best, most 
innovative, and least burdensome tools for achieving regulatory ends. 
The E.O. directs agencies to consider regulatory approaches that reduce 
burdens and maintain flexibility and freedom of choice for the public 
where these approaches are relevant, feasible, and consistent with 
regulatory objectives. E.O. 13563 emphasizes further that regulations 
must be based on the best available science and that the rulemaking 
process must allow for public participation and an open exchange of 
ideas. We have developed this rule in a manner consistent with these 
requirements.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Department of the Interior certifies that this rule will not 
have a significant economic effect on a substantial number of small 
entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.).

C. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. This rule:
    (a) Does not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million 
or more;
    (b) Will not cause a major increase in costs or prices for 
consumers, individual industries, Federal, State, or local government 
agencies, or geographic regions; and
    (c) Does not have significant adverse effects on competition, 
employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of 
U.S.-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises 
because this rule makes minor corrections.

D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    This rule does not impose an unfunded mandate on State, local, or 
Tribal governments or the private sector of more than $100 million per 
year. The rule does not have a monetarily significant or unique effect 
on State, local, or Tribal governments or the private sector. A 
statement containing the information required by the Unfunded Mandates 
Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) is not required.

E. Takings (E.O. 12630)

    This rule does not affect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630 because this rule 
does not affect individual property rights protected by the Fifth 
Amendment or involve a compensable ``taking.'' A takings implication 
assessment is not required.

F. Federalism (E.O. 13132)

    Under the criteria in section 1 of Executive Order 13132, this rule 
does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the 
preparation of a federalism summary impact statement because the rule 
affects only agreements entered into by Tribes and the Department. A 
federalism summary impact statement is not required.

G. Civil Justice Reform (E.O. 12988)

    This rule complies with the requirements of Executive Order 12988. 
Specifically, this rule: (a) Meets the criteria of section 3(a) 
requiring that all regulations be reviewed to eliminate errors and 
ambiguity and be written to minimize litigation; and (b) Meets the 
criteria of section 3(b)(2) requiring that all regulations be written 
in clear language and contain clear legal standards.

H. Consultation With Indian Tribes (E.O. 13175)

    The Department of the Interior strives to strengthen its 
government-to-government relationship with Indian Tribes through a 
commitment to consultation with Indian Tribes and recognition of their 
right to self-governance and Tribal sovereignty. We have evaluated this 
rule under the Department's consultation policy and under the criteria 
in Executive Order 13175 and have determined that it does not have 
substantial direct effects on federally recognized Indian Tribes 
because the Department consulted on substantive requirements of the 
rule that is in effect, and this rule merely makes minor corrections to 
that substantive rule.

[[Page 40149]]

I. Paperwork Reduction Act

    OMB Control No. 1076-0167 currently authorizes the collections of 
information contained in 25 CFR part 224. This rule does not affect 
those collections of information.

J. National Environmental Policy Act

    This rule does not constitute a major Federal action significantly 
affecting the quality of the human environment. A detailed statement 
under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not 
required because this is an administrative and procedural regulation. 
(For further information see 43 CFR 46.210(i)). We have also determined 
that the rule does not involve any of the extraordinary circumstances 
listed in 43 CFR 46.215 that would require further analysis under NEPA.

K. Effects on the Energy Supply (E.O. 13211)

    This rule is not a significant energy action under the definition 
in Executive Order 13211. A Statement of Energy Effects is not 
required.
