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 D airspace, the Class E surface airspace, and the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Rochester International Airport, Rochester, MN; revokes the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D and Class E surface areas at Rochester International Airport; amends the Class D airspace, the Class E surface area, the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D and Class E surface areas, and the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at St. Cloud Regional Airport, St. Cloud, MN, to support instrument flight rule operations at these airports. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register (86 FR 62750; November 12, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2021–0814 to amend the Class D and Class E airspace at Rochester International Airport, Rochester, MN, and St. Cloud Regional Airport, St. Cloud, MN, and revoke Class E airspace at Rochester International 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 D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004, 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 Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 71: Amends the Class D airspace to within a 4.4-mile (increased from a 4.3mile) radius of Rochester International Airport, Rochester, MN; removes the Rochester VOR/DME from the airspace legal description as it is not required; and updates the outdated term ‘‘Airport/ Facility Directory’’ to ‘‘Chart Supplement’’; Amends the Class D airspace to within a 4.2-mile (increased from a 4.1mile) radius of St. Cloud Regional Airport, St. Cloud, MN; updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; and updates the outdated term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ to ‘‘Chart Supplement’’; Amends the Class E surface area to within a 4.4-mile (increased from a 4.3mile) radius of Rochester International Airport; removes the Rochester VOR/ DME and associated extension from the airspace legal description as they are no longer required; and updates the outdated term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ to ‘‘Chart Supplement’’; Amends the Class E surface area to within a 4.2-mile (increased from a 4.1mile) radius of St. Cloud Regional Airport; removes the St. Cloud VOR/ DME and associated extension from the airspace legal description as they no longer required; updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; and updates the outdated term ‘‘Airport/ Facility Directory’’ to ‘‘Chart Supplement’’; Removes the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D and Class E surface areas at Rochester International Airport as it is no longer required; Amends the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D and Class E surface areas at St. Cloud Regional Airport to within 2.4 miles each side of the St. Cloud VOR/DME 140° (previously 143°) radial extending from the 4.2-mile (increased from 4.1- VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:00 Feb 03, 2022 Jkt 256001 mile) radius of the St. Cloud Regional Airport to 7 (decreased from 7.2) miles southeast of the St. Cloud VOR/DME (previously airport); and updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.9-mile (increased from a 6.8-mile) radius of Rochester International Airport; removes the Rochester VOR/DME and associated extension from the airspace legal description as they are no longer required; adds an extension within 2 miles each side of the 132° bearing from the airport extending from the 6.9-mile radius to 10.9 miles southeast of the airport; amends the southeast extension to within 4 miles each side of the 132° bearing from the Rochester Intl.: RWY 31–LOC (previously 5.3 miles northeast and 4 miles southwest of the Rochester southeast localizer course) extending from the 6.9-mile (increased from a 6.8mile) radius to 7.5 miles (decreased from 17.3 miles) southeast of the airport; amends the northwest extension to within 3.9 miles each side of the 312° bearing from the Rochester Intl.: RWY 13–LOC (previously 5.3 miles southwest and 4 miles northeast of the Rochester northwest localizer course) extending from the 6.9-mile (increased from 6.8mile) radius of the airport to 11.4 (decreased from 20) miles northwest of the airport; And amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.7-mile (increased from 6.6-mile) radius of St. Cloud Regional Airport; amends the southeast extension to within 2.4 miles each side of the St. Cloud VOR/DME 140° (previously 143°) radial extending from the 6.7-mile (increased from 6.6mile) radius of the airport to 7 (decrease from 7.2) miles southeast of the St. Cloud VOR/DME (previously airport); and updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action is due to biennial airspace reviews. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 ‘‘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 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 5–6.5.a. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Upon request, FDA has classified the system for detection of microorganisms and antimicrobial resistance using reporter expression as class II (special controls), which we have determined will provide a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness. In addition, we believe this action will enhance patients’ access to beneficial innovation by placing the device into a lower device class than the automatic class III assignment. The automatic assignment of class III occurs by operation of law and without any action by FDA, regardless of the level of risk posed by the new device. Any device that was not in commercial distribution before May 28, 1976, is automatically classified as, and remains within, class III and requires premarket approval unless and until FDA takes an action to classify or reclassify the device (see 21 U.S.C. 360c(f)(1)). We refer to these devices as ‘‘postamendments devices’’ because they were not in commercial distribution prior to the date of enactment of the Medical Device Amendments of 1976, which amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). FDA may take a variety of actions in appropriate circumstances to classify or reclassify a device into class I or II. We may issue an order finding a new device to be substantially equivalent under section 513(i) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 360c(i)) to a predicate device that does not require premarket approval. We determine whether a new device is substantially equivalent to a predicate device by means of the procedures for premarket notification under section 510(k) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 360(k)) and part 807 (21 CFR part 807). FDA may also classify a device through ‘‘De Novo’’ classification, a E:\FR\FM\04FER1.SGM 04FER1

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 D airspace, the Class E surface airspace, and 
the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
at Rochester International Airport, Rochester, MN; revokes the Class E 
airspace designated as an extension to Class D and Class E surface 
areas at Rochester International Airport; amends the Class D airspace, 
the Class E surface area, the Class E airspace designated as an 
extension to Class D and Class E surface areas, and the Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at St. Cloud 
Regional Airport, St. Cloud, MN, to support instrument flight rule 
operations at these airports.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the 
Federal Register (86 FR 62750; November 12, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-
2021-0814 to amend the Class D and Class E airspace at Rochester 
International Airport, Rochester, MN, and St. Cloud Regional Airport, 
St. Cloud, MN, and revoke Class E airspace at Rochester International 
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 D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 
5000, 6002, 6004, 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.

airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points.

Differences From the NPRM

    Subsequent to publication of the NPRM, the FAA discovered a 
typographic error in the St. Cloud, MN, Class E Airspace Areas 
Designated as an Extension to a Class D or Class E Surface Area 
airspace legal description. The radius of the airport should be ``4.2-
mile'' vice `4.4-mile.'' As this change does not affect the Class E 
airspace area as proposed, it is incorporated into this rule.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71:
    Amends the Class D airspace to within a 4.4-mile (increased from a 
4.3-mile) radius of Rochester International Airport, Rochester, MN; 
removes the Rochester VOR/DME from the airspace legal description as it 
is not required; and updates the outdated term ``Airport/Facility 
Directory'' to ``Chart Supplement'';
    Amends the Class D airspace to within a 4.2-mile (increased from a 
4.1-mile) radius of St. Cloud Regional Airport, St. Cloud, MN; updates 
the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database; and updates the outdated term ``Airport/Facility 
Directory'' to ``Chart Supplement'';
    Amends the Class E surface area to within a 4.4-mile (increased 
from a 4.3-mile) radius of Rochester International Airport; removes the 
Rochester VOR/DME and associated extension from the airspace legal 
description as they are no longer required; and updates the outdated 
term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' to ``Chart Supplement'';
    Amends the Class E surface area to within a 4.2-mile (increased 
from a 4.1-mile) radius of St. Cloud Regional Airport; removes the St. 
Cloud VOR/DME and associated extension from the airspace legal 
description as they no longer required; updates the geographic 
coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database; and updates the outdated term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' 
to ``Chart Supplement'';
    Removes the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D 
and Class E surface areas at Rochester International Airport as it is 
no longer required;
    Amends the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D 
and Class E surface areas at St. Cloud Regional Airport to within 2.4 
miles each side of the St. Cloud VOR/DME 140[deg] (previously 143[deg]) 
radial extending from the 4.2-mile (increased from 4.1-mile) radius of 
the St. Cloud Regional Airport to 7 (decreased from 7.2) miles 
southeast of the St. Cloud VOR/DME (previously airport); and updates 
the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database;
    Amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to within a 6.9-mile (increased from a 6.8-mile) radius of 
Rochester International Airport; removes the Rochester VOR/DME and 
associated extension from the airspace legal description as they are no 
longer required; adds an extension within 2 miles each side of the 
132[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the 6.9-mile radius to 
10.9 miles southeast of the airport; amends the southeast extension to 
within 4 miles each side of the 132[deg] bearing from the Rochester 
Intl.: RWY 31-LOC (previously 5.3 miles northeast and 4 miles southwest

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 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 5-6.5.a. 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.
