SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On December 17, 1999, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by amending Class E Airspace at Lexington, KY (64 FR 70611). This action provides adequate Class E airspace for IFR operations at the Saint Joseph's Hospital and The University of Kentucky Medical Center. Designations for Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface and published in FAA Order 7400.9G, dated September 1, 1999, and effective September 16, 1999, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments objecting to the proposal were received.

The Rule

This amendment to part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) amends Class E airspace at Lexington, KY, for the Saint Joseph's Hospital and The University of Kentucky Medical Center.

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 11304; February 26, 1979); and (3) Does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation, as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routin matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
