The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to part 71 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E airspace at 
Bullhead City, AZ. The intended effect of this proposal is to provide 
adequate Class E airspace for IFR operators executing the VOR/DME 
approach at Bullhead Laughlin, AZ. The coordinates for this airspace 
docket are based on North American Datum 83. Class E airspace areas are 
published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9A dated June 17, 1993, 
and effective September 16, 1993, which is incorporated by reference in 
14 CFR 71.1 (58 FR 36298; July 6, 1993). The Class E airspace 
designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.
    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 10034; 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.
