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 amend the Class D airspace at Fort Worth Spinks Airport, Fort Worth, TX, and the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Granbury Regional Airport, Granbury, TX, contained within the Dallas-Fort Worth, TX, airspace legal description, to support instrument flight rule operations at these airports.

This action is necessary due to an airspace review due to the cancellation of the instrument procedures and implementation of new instrument procedures at Granbury Regional Airport. Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000 and 6005, respectively, 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.

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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:53 Dec 02, 2021 Jkt 256001 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 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.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: In this notice of proposed rulemaking, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) proposes deregulatory amendments to the regulations to modernize and streamline the permit application for distilled spirits plants and for users and dealers of specially denatured alcohol and taxfree alcohol. The proposed amendments also relax some reporting requirements associated with changes to the business of those holding such permits and registrations. Some of these proposed liberalizing amendments would also apply to all Federal Alcohol Administration Act basic permit holders (including wineries, and importers and wholesalers of distilled spirits, wine, and malt beverages) and to alcohol beverage dealers. The proposed amendments are a result of TTB’s evaluation of its permit and registration application requirements and consideration of relevant public comments submitted to the Treasury Department in response to its request for recommendations concerning regulations that can be eliminated, modified, or streamlined in order to reduce burdens. TTB believes the jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with PROPOSALS1 SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:53 Dec 02, 2021 Jkt 256001 amendments proposed in this document will significantly reduce the time needed to complete an application for a permit or registration.

Paperwork Reduction Act I. Background A. TTB Evaluation of Permit and Registration Application Requirements In fiscal year 2017, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) began an evaluation of the information PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 68573 collected during the course of TTB’s permit and registration applications. The purpose was to identify ways to streamline the application and registration process, reduce burden on the regulated industry, and ensure that the process collects, where possible, only information that is necessary to meet the agency’s statutory obligations. TTB’s general approach was to identify information being collected that could be eliminated without hindering TTB’s ability to evaluate an applicant’s qualifications and to more narrowly focus the application questions to capture only the information that is needed. In addition, TTB also considered whether there were any requests made in the application process that were so commonly approved that the regulations themselves could be amended to accommodate them without the need to submit the request. Similarly, on June 14, 2017, the Treasury Department (Treasury) published in the Federal Register (82 FR 27217) a Request for Information inviting members of the public to submit views and recommendations for Treasury regulations that can be eliminated, modified, or streamlined in order to reduce burdens. TTB reviewed comments received in response to this request and identified proposals that related to the permit application process or, more generally, to beginning business in a TTB-regulated industry. Through TTB’s internal evaluation and consideration of the public input, TTB has identified deregulatory actions that TTB can take by amending regulations and also, where rulemaking is not required, by amending guidance and forms. While this document addresses distilled spirits plants, users and dealers of specially denatured alcohol and tax-free alcohol, and Federal Alcohol Administration Act basic permit holders, TTB intends to engage in further rulemaking to address other regulated industries within the context of their respective statutory eligibility requirements. Specifically, TTB will address in separate rulemakings the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) registration and notice requirements for wine and beer producers, respectively, as well as IRC requirements for TTB-regulated tobacco businesses. With respect to distilled spirits plants (DSPs), this document proposes to amend the regulations to eliminate or narrow the range of information that must be submitted with applications for permits or registrations to more directly respond to TTB’s statutory obligations E:\FR\FM\03DEP1.SGM 03DEP1

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order JO 7400.11F, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021, and effective 
September 15, 2021. FAA Order JO

[[Page 68572]]

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 Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 by:
    Amending the Class D airspace at Fort Worth Spinks Airport, Fort 
Worth, TX, by updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    And amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface within an 8.8-mile (increased from a 6.3-mile) radius 
of Granbury Regional Airport, Granbury, TX, contained within the 
Dallas-Fort Worth, TX, airspace legal description; and updating the 
geographic coordinates of Fort Worth Spinks Airport, Fort Worth, TX, 
also contained within the Dallas-Fort Worth, TX airspace legal 
description, to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    This action is necessary due to an airspace review due to the 
cancellation of the instrument procedures and implementation of new 
instrument procedures at Granbury Regional Airport.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 
5000 and 6005, respectively, 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 E airspace designations 
listed in this document will be published subsequently in FAA Order JO 
7400.11.
    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

    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.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR 71
