Federal Register Docket No. FAA-2011-0116, Airspace Docket No. 11-ANE-1, published on June 22, 2011 (76 FR 36285), establishes Class E airspace at Brunswick Executive Airport, Brunswick, ME. This action will move up the effective date of this rulemaking, as the new approach procedures are to be published July 28, 2011. The original August 25, 2011, effective date was an oversight by the FAA. The FAA has determined good cause exists to have an effective date less than 30 days after the publication of this final rule because of the financial hardship the airport and its employees would incur with a delay of this magnitude.

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

The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's authority.

This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part, A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it establishes Class E airspace at Brunswick Executive Airport, Brunswick, ME.
