Download as PDF lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with RULES1 67858 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 227 / Tuesday, November 30, 2021 / Rules and Regulations threshold amount in effect at the time of consummation. In these circumstances, the loan remains exempt under § 1026.3(b) even if the total amount of credit extended does not exceed the threshold amount. ii. Subsequent changes. If a creditor makes a closed-end extension of credit or commitment to extend closed-end credit that exceeds the threshold amount in effect at the time of consummation, the closed-end loan remains exempt under § 1026.3(b) regardless of a subsequent increase in the threshold amount. However, a closed-end loan is not exempt under § 1026.3(b) merely because it is used to satisfy and replace an existing exempt loan, unless the new extension of credit is itself exempt under the applicable threshold amount. For example, assume a closed-end loan that qualified for a § 1026.3(b) exemption at consummation in year one is refinanced in year ten and that the new loan amount is less than the threshold amount in effect in year ten. In these circumstances, the creditor must comply with all of the applicable requirements of this part with respect to the year ten transaction if the original loan is satisfied and replaced by the new loan, which is not exempt under § 1026.3(b). See also comment 3(b)–6. 6. Addition of a security interest in real property or a dwelling after account opening or consummation. i. Open-end credit. For open-end accounts, if after account opening a security interest is taken in real property, or in personal property used or expected to be used as the consumer’s principal dwelling, a previously exempt account ceases to be exempt under § 1026.3(b) and the creditor must begin to comply with all of the applicable requirements of this part within a reasonable period of time. See comment 3(b)–4.ii. If a security interest is taken in the consumer’s principal dwelling, the creditor must also give the consumer the right to rescind the security interest consistent with § 1026.15. ii. Closed-end credit. For closed-end loans, if after consummation a security interest is taken in real property, or in personal property used or expected to be used as the consumer’s principal dwelling, an exempt loan remains exempt under § 1026.3(b). However, the addition of a security interest in the consumer’s principal dwelling is a transaction for purposes of § 1026.23, and the creditor must give the consumer the right to rescind the security interest consistent with that section. See § 1026.23(a)(1) and its commentary. In contrast, if a closed-end loan that is exempt under § 1026.3(b) is satisfied and replaced by a loan that is secured VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:56 Nov 29, 2021 Jkt 256001 by real property, or by personal property used or expected to be used as the consumer’s principal dwelling, the new loan is not exempt under § 1026.3(b), and the creditor must comply with all of the applicable requirements of this part. See comment 3(b)–5. 7. Application to extensions secured by mobile homes. Because a mobile home can be a dwelling under § 1026.2(a)(19), the exemption in § 1026.3(b) does not apply to a credit extension secured by a mobile home that is used or expected to be used as the principal dwelling of the consumer. See comment 3(b)–6. 8. Transition rule for open-end accounts exempt prior to July 21, 2011. Section 1026.3(b)(2) applies only to open-end accounts opened prior to July 21, 2011. Section 1026.3(b)(2) does not apply if a security interest is taken by the creditor in real property, or in personal property used or expected to be used as the consumer’s principal dwelling. If, on July 20, 2011, an openend account is exempt under § 1026.3(b) based on a firm commitment to extend credit in excess of $25,000, the account remains exempt under § 1026.3(b)(2) until December 31, 2011 (unless the firm commitment is reduced to $25,000 or less). If the firm commitment is increased on or before December 31, 2011 to an amount in excess of $50,000, the account remains exempt under § 1026.3(b)(1) regardless of subsequent increases in the threshold amount as a result of increases in the CPI–W. If the firm commitment is not increased on or before December 31, 2011 to an amount in excess of $50,000, the account ceases to be exempt under § 1026.3(b) based on a firm commitment to extend credit. For example: i. Assume that, on July 20, 2011, the account is exempt under § 1026.3(b) based on the creditor’s firm commitment to extend $30,000 in credit. On November 1, 2011, the creditor increases the firm commitment on the account to $55,000. In these circumstances, the account remains exempt under § 1026.3(b)(1) regardless of subsequent increases in the threshold amount as a result of increases in the CPI–W. ii. Same facts as paragraph 8.i of this section except, on November 1, 2011, the creditor increases the firm commitment on the account to $40,000. In these circumstances, the account ceases to be exempt under § 1026.3(b)(2) after December 31, 2011, and the creditor must begin to comply with the applicable requirements of this part. * * * * * PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 By order of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, acting through the Secretary of the Board under delegated authority.

The Rule The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by modifying the lateral boundaries of the Class D and Class E surface airspace and the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL at Tacoma Narrows Airport, Tacoma, WA. A review of the airspace was initiated due to corresponding reviews at McChord Field (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) and Gray AAF (Joint Base Lewis-McChord). All three locations were evaluated at the same time due to their close proximity to one another and operational interdependence. The airspace at McChord Field and Gray AAF (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) were reviewed due to three actions. The FAA decommissioned the McChord VORTAC because the U.S. Air Force was no longer going to maintain the NAVAID. The U.S. Air Force requested the elimination of previously excluded airspace, which required an airspace review to evaluate that request, and the Class D airspace at McChord Field and Gray AAF (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) had not been examined in the previous two years, as required by FAA Orders. The Tacoma Narrows Airport Class D and Class E surface airspace that extends to 5.3 miles south of the airport would be removed as it is no longer needed for arrivals or departures. In addition, the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL within 4 miles each side of the 007° and 187° bearings from the Tacoma Narrows Airport extending to 8 miles north and 7 miles south of the airport will be shortened to 6 miles, respectively. FAA Order JO 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 PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 67859 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Executive Summary A. Purpose of the Rule This rule is required to implement section 701 of NDAA–2020. As a ‘‘housekeeping’’ matter, this rule includes necessary changes to the TRICARE regulation to conform it to the new statutory requirements enacted in the NDAA–2020, over which the Department has no administrative discretion. In implementing section 701 of NDAA–2020, this rule advances the better care component of the Military Health System’s aims by expanding the options available to Federal employees. B. Exception to Notice and Comment Agency informal rule-making is governed by section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 551 et seq. Section 553(b) requires that, unless the rule falls within one of the enumerated exemptions, an agency must publish a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register that provides interested persons an opportunity to submit written data, views, or arguments, prior to finalization of regulatory requirements. Section 553(b)(B) of the APA authorizes an agency to dispense with the prior notice and opportunity for public comment requirement when the agency, for ‘‘good cause,’’ finds that notice and public comment thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. Section 553 also requires an agency to include an explanation of such good cause with the publication of the rule. As noted in the preamble, the change in law was effective upon enactment on December 20, 2019. The change in law is selfexecuting and Department of Defense (DoD) has no discretion for implementing the law, including amending the TRICARE regulation to conform it to the statutory requirements. Because DoD cannot change the law, it is impracticable and unnecessary to PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 delay amending the TRICARE regulation to conform it to the law until a full public notice-and-comment process is completed. In addition, it would be contrary to public interest to retain in existence a TRICARE regulation relied upon by the public which contains an eligibility requirement which is legally inconsistent with the controlling legislation for TRS coverage pending completion of a full public notice-andcomment process. Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), and for reasons stated in this preamble, the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs (ASD(HA)), therefore, concludes that there is good cause to dispense with prior public notice and the opportunity to comment on this rule before finalizing this rule. C. Summary of Major Provisions The rule amends the TRICARE regulation to conform it to the current law that defines eligibility for TRICARE Reserve Select, specifying that Selected Reserve members eligible for or enrolled in a Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) plan (5 U.S.C. Chapter 89, ‘‘Health Insurance’’) are eligible to enroll in TRS beginning January 1, 2030. D. Legal Authority for This Program The statutory authority for this final rule is 10 U.S.C. 1076d, as amended by Public Law 116–92, NDAA–2020, Section 701, ‘‘Modification of Eligibility for TRICARE Reserve Select for Certain Members of the Selected Reserve.’’ This final rule amends title 32, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), § 199.24, ‘‘TRICARE Reserve Select,’’ which offers the TRICARE Select self-managed, preferred-provider network option and can be found at https://www.ecfr.gov/ cgi-bin/textidx?SID=2e53e1af44c38aa7d 9076c076a2acd02&mc=true&node=se32 .2.199_124&rgn=div8. The TRICARE Reserve Select program is established under 10 U.S.C. 1076d, ‘‘TRICARE program: TRICARE Reserve Select coverage for members of the Selected Reserve.’’ II.

SUMMARY: This action modifies the Class D airspace, Class E surface 
airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
ground level (AGL) at Tacoma Narrows Airport, Tacoma, WA. A review of 
the airspace was initiated due to corresponding reviews at McChord 
Field (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) and Gray AAF (Joint Base Lewis-
McChord). All three locations were evaluated at the same time due to 
their close proximity to one another and operational interdependence. 
After a review of the airspace, the FAA found it necessary to modify 
the existing airspace for the safety and management of Instrument 
Flight Rules (IFR) operations at this airport.

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 would modify the Class D airspace, Class E surface airspace, and 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above ground level to 
support IFR operations at Tacoma Narrows Airport, Tacoma, WA.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (85 FR 71289; November 9, 2020) for Docket No. FAA-2020-0925 
to modify the Class D and Class E airspace at Tacoma Narrows Airport, 
Tacoma, WA. Interested parties were invited to participate in this 
rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the 
FAA. One comment in support of the action was received.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6005 of FAA Order JO 7400.11F, dated August 10, 
2021, and effective September 15, 2021, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and Class E airspace designations 
listed in this document will be published subsequently in FAA Order JO 
7400.11.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order JO 7400.11F, Airspace Designations 
and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 
15, 2021. FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F lists Class 
A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by modifying the lateral 
boundaries of the Class D and Class E surface airspace and the Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL at Tacoma Narrows Airport, 
Tacoma, WA. A review of the airspace was initiated due to corresponding 
reviews at McChord Field (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) and Gray AAF (Joint 
Base Lewis-McChord). All three locations were evaluated at the same 
time due to their close proximity to one another and operational 
interdependence. The airspace at McChord Field and Gray AAF (Joint Base 
Lewis-McChord) were reviewed due to three actions. The FAA 
decommissioned the McChord VORTAC because the U.S. Air Force was no 
longer going to maintain the NAVAID. The U.S. Air Force requested the 
elimination of previously excluded airspace, which required an airspace 
review to evaluate that request, and the Class D airspace at McChord 
Field and Gray AAF (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) had not been examined in 
the previous two years, as required by FAA Orders.
    The Tacoma Narrows Airport Class D and Class E surface airspace 
that extends to 5.3 miles south of the airport would be removed as it 
is no longer needed for arrivals or departures.
    In addition, the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
AGL within 4 miles each side of the 007[deg] and 187[deg] bearings from 
the Tacoma Narrows Airport extending to 8 miles north and 7 miles south 
of the airport will be shortened to 6 miles, respectively.
    FAA Order JO 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.
