History

On August 15, 2007, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending Class E airspace at Scottsboro, AL, (72 FR 45700). This action provides adequate Class E airspace for IFR operations at Scottsboro Municipal—Word Field Airport, Scottsboro, AL. Designations for Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the Earth are published in FAA Order 7400.9R, dated August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E 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 61510

The Rule

This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E airspace at Scottsboro, AL, to provide additional controlled airspace required to support new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Runway (RWY) 4 and RWY 22 SIAP at Scottsboro Municipal—Word Field Airport.

The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 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.
