History

On Friday, January 17, 2003, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 to establish a Class E surface area and to modify Class E airspace at Jefferson City, MO (68 FR 2462). The proposal was to establish a Class E surface area at Jefferson City, MO for those times when the air traffic control tower (ATCT) is closed. It also proposed to make editorial changes to the descriptions of Class E airspace designated as an extension to the Class D surface area and to Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth at Jefferson City, MO. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written Start Printed Page 11739comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments objecting to the proposal were received.

Class E airspace areas designated as surface areas are published in paragraph 6002 of FAA Order 7400.9K, dated August 30, 2002, and effective September 16, 2002, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. Class E airspace areas designated as an extension to the Class D surface area and Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in Paragraphs 6004 and 6005, respectively, of the same FAA Order. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

This amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR Part 71) establishes a Class E surface area at Jefferson City, MO to provide adequate controlled airspace for aircraft executing instrument flight procedures. It also modifies the legal descriptions of Class E airspace designated as an extension to the Class D surface area and to Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth at Jefferson City, MO. The areas will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts.

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, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
