(3) Prohibited financial interests acquired without specific intent following confirmation.—(i) If a Governor or his or her spouse or minor child acquires a financial interest prohibited by paragraph (a)(1) of this section without specific intent to acquire it (such as through marriage, inheritance, or gift) subsequent to the Governor’s confirmation: (A) The Governor shall report the prohibited financial interest to the Postal Service’s DAEO within 30 calendar days of its acquisition; and (B) The prohibited financial interest shall be divested within 90 calendar days of its acquisition, or as soon as possible thereafter if there are restrictions on divestiture.

Disqualification is accomplished by not participating in the particular matter. (d) Waiver of prohibited financial interests. For good cause shown by a Governor, the Postal Service’s DAEO may grant a written waiver to the Governor of any prohibited financial interest described in paragraph (a), (c)(2), or (c)(3) of this section; provided that the DAEO finds that the waiver is not inconsistent with 5 CFR part 2635 or otherwise prohibited by law, and that under the particular circumstances, application of the prohibition is not necessary to avoid the appearance of the Governor’s misuse of position or loss of impartiality or otherwise to ensure confidence in the impartiality or objectivity with which the Postal Service’s programs are administered. The DAEO may impose appropriate conditions for granting of the waiver, such as requiring the Governor to execute a written statement of disqualification. (e) Definition. For purposes of this section, a person engaged in the delivery outside the mails of any type of mailable matter is as defined in § 7001.102(d)(3).

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 E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within 6.6-mile (decreased from a 6.7-mile) radius of Owatonna Degner Regional Airport, Owatonna, MN; and removing the Halfway VOR/DME associated with the airspace in the legal description as it is no longer required; and updating the name (previously Owatonna Municipal Airport) and geographic coordinates of Owatonna Degner Regional Airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action is the result of an airspace review due to the decommissioning of the Owatonna NDB and the Owatonna OM, which provided guidance to the instrument procedures at this airport. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 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.

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) PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 9990 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.

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 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 E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to 
within 6.6-mile (decreased from a 6.7-mile) radius of Owatonna Degner 
Regional Airport, Owatonna, MN; and removing the Halfway VOR/DME 
associated with the airspace in the legal description as it is no 
longer required; and updating the name (previously Owatonna Municipal 
Airport) and geographic coordinates of Owatonna Degner Regional Airport 
to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    This action is the result of an airspace review due to the 
decommissioning of the Owatonna NDB and the Owatonna OM, which provided 
guidance to the instrument procedures at this airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 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 
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,

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.
