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 E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface in New Madrid, MO, to support IFR operations in the area. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (86 FR 30399, June 8, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2021–0418 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at County Memorial Airport, New Madrid, MO, due to the decommissioning of the Malden VORTAC.

The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is amended by increasing the radius to 10.3 miles (previously 6.3 miles). FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. 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 an 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. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 I. Background Executive Order 13891, Promoting the Rule of Law Through Improved Agency Guidance Documents, issued October 9, 2019, required agencies to finalize regulations to set forth processes and procedures for issuing guidance documents. To respond to this action, NASA issued its Guidance Procedures, 14 CFR part 1204 subpart 3, that published on March 24, 2020, at 85 FR 16542. On January 20, 2021, Executive Order 13992, Revocation of Certain Executive Orders Concerning Federal Regulation, was issued to revoke several regulatory policies, including Executive Order 13891. Therefore, NASA is removing 14 CFR part 1204 subpart 3, NASA Guidance Documents, to comply with Executive Order 13992. II. Regulatory Analysis Executive Order 12866—Regulatory Planning and Review and Executive Order 13563—Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, reducing costs, harmonizing rules, and promoting flexibility. This rule is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. Executive Order 13132—Federalism Executive Order 13132 requires agencies to ensure meaningful and timely input by state and local officials in the development of regulatory policies that may have a substantial, direct effect on the states, on the relationship between the National Government and the states, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. This action has been analyzed in accordance with the principles and criteria contained in the order, and NASA has determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect or federalism implications on the states and would not preempt any state law or regulation or affect the states’ ability to discharge traditional state governmental functions. Therefore, consultation with the states is not necessary. E:\FR\FM\09AUR1.SGM 09AUR1

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 E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface in New Madrid, MO, to support IFR operations in the area.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 30399, June 8, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-0418 to 
amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
at County Memorial Airport, New Madrid, MO, due to the decommissioning 
of the Malden VORTAC.
    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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.11E, Airspace Designations and

The Rule

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending the Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at County Memorial 
Airport, New Madrid, MO, as the Malden VORTAC has been decommissioned 
and all associated airspace extensions of Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface, off the Malden VORTAC, have 
been eliminated. The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface is amended by increasing the radius to 10.3 miles 
(previously 6.3 miles).
    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. 
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 an 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.
