SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On November 28, 2000, the FAA published a document (65 FR 70824) proposing to revise the Class D and E airspace areas at Sacramento Executive Airport in Sacramento, California. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting comments on the proposal to the FAA. In the ensuing comment period, which closed on January 12, 2001, the FAA received no comments on the proposed action.

The Rule

This action amends 14 CFR part 71 by reducing the radius of the basic surface area at Sacramento Executive Airport and by removing those portions of airspace defined as a northeast extension to the basic surface area. 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. Therefore, this regulation— (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.

Class D and E2 airspace areas are published in Paragraphs 5000 and 6002, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9H, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2000, and effective September 16, 2000, through September 15, 2001, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E2 airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order.
