As such, this action is not expected to result in any potentially significant environmental impacts. In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5–2, regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, the FAA has reviewed this action for factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically excluded action may have a significant environmental impact requiring further analysis. Accordingly, the FAA has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study. ■ List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 § 71.1 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

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 airspace for Hudson Valley Regional Airport, Poughkeepsie, 
NY, to support IFR operations in the area.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (87 FR 31192, May 23, 2022) for Docket No. FAA-2022-0524 to 
amend Class D airspace and Class E surface airspace for Hudson Valley 
Regional Airport, Poughkeepsie, NY, by updating the airport's name, 
amending the radii of the existing airspace, and removing Class E 
airspace designated as an extension to Class D airspace. In addition, 
the FAA proposed to remove Kingston VORTAC from the Class E surface 
airspace description, as well as replace the term Airport/Facility 
Directory with Chart Supplement in the descriptions. Interested parties 
were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting 
written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.

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 became 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 routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending Class D airspace and 
Class E surface airspace, by increasing the radius to 4.4 miles 
(previously 4.0 miles), and amending the surface extensions. Also, this 
action removes Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D 
surface area for Hudson Valley Regional Airport, Poughkeepsie, NY, as 
the extensions are included in the Class D description. This action 
updates the airport's name to Hudson Valley Regional Airport (formerly 
Dutchess County Airport), and removes Kingston VORTAC from the Class E 
surface airspace description, as well as replaces the term Airport/
Facility Directory with Chart Supplement in the descriptions. In 
addition, the city name is removed from the airport header, as per FAA 
Order 7400.2. This action enhances the safety and management of 
controlled airspace within the national airspace system.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
Paragraphs 5000, 6002, and 6004, 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. 
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 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 5-6.5a. 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.
