Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
Final rule, technical amendment, withdrawal.
This action withdraws the final rule, technical amendment published in the Federal Register on April 26, 2017. In that action, the FAA amended Class E Airspace at Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport, Lewiston, ID; Pocatello Regional Airport, Pocatello, ID; and Joslin Field-Magic Valley Regional Airport, Twin Falls, ID. The FAA has determined that withdrawal of the final rule, technical amendment is warranted since a change in the geographic coordinates of the airports will affect the charted boundaries of the airspace, and therefore should be considered under the full rulemaking process.
Effective Date: 0901 UTC, June 7, 2017.

The FAA published a final rule in the Federal Register (82 FR 19187, April 26, 2017) amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amending Class E Airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area at Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport, Lewiston, ID; Pocatello Regional Airport, Pocatello, ID; and Joslin Field-Magic Valley Regional Airport, Twin Falls, ID, by eliminating the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) part-time status. Additionally, the action updated the geographic coordinates of these airports and the Pocatello VHF Omnidirectional Radar Range Tactical Air Navigation Aid (VORTAC), the Twin Falls VORTAC, and American Falls Airport listed in the associated Class D and Class E airspace descriptions for Pocatello Regional Airport, and Joslin Field-Magic Valley Regional Airport. The FAA found that by updating the geographic coordinates of the airports and navigation aids, the charted boundaries of the airspace were affected sufficiently to warrant full consideration under the rulemaking process. As a result, the final rule, technical amendment is being withdrawn.
