SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On March 11, 2005, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations part 71 (CFR part 71) to establish Class D airspace at Front Range Airport, Denver, CO, (70 FR 12161). An Airport Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) is under construction at Front Range Airport, Denver CO, which will meet criteria for Class D airspace. The Class D airspace area will be effective during periods that the ATCT is open.

Interested parties were invited to participate in this rule making proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9M dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class D airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order.

The Rule

This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class D airspace at Front Range Airport, Denver CO. An Airport Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) is under construction at Front Range Airport, Denver, CO, which will meet criteria for Class D airspace.

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 Start Printed Page 37029traffic 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.
