SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On September 22, 2000, the FAA proposed to amend Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR Part 71) by amending Class D and Class E4 airspace at Gainesville, FL (65 FR 57300). Class D and Class E4 airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000 and 6004 respectively of FAA Order 7400.9H, dated September 1, 2000, and effective September 16, 2000, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and Class E airspace designations 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.Start Printed Page 67625

The Rule

This amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) amends Class D and Class E4 airspace at Gainesville, FL.

The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body ot 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 so minimal. Since this is a routine 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.
