VerDate jul<14>2003 18:56 Aug 05, 2005 Jkt 205001 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On September 2, 2003, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) proposing to realign V–233 northeast of the Capital VORTAC (68 FR 52150). This change was needed due to the pending relocation of the Capital VORTAC. This relocation will result in a change of the VORTAC radials used in the legal description of V–233; but would not have changed the legal description of any other airways or jet routes because, at the time that the NPRM was issued, the FAA did not plan to change the name of the VORTAC. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received in response to the proposal. Subsequent to the issuance of the NPRM and in the interest of safety, a decision was made to change the name of the ‘‘Capital VORTAC’’ to the ‘‘Spinner VORTAC’’. Because the name of the VORTAC is contained in the legal description of Federal Airways V–9, V– 50, V–67, V–69, V–129, V–173 and V– 233; and Jet Routes J–35, J–80, J–101 and J–137, the legal descriptions must be changed. Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 7400.9M dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Federal airways listed in this document will be published subsequently in the order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by revising the legal descriptions for Federal Airways V–9, V–50, V–67, V– 69, V–129, V–173 and V–233; and Jet Routes J–35, J–80, J–101 and J–137 over the Springfield, IL, area. The FAA is taking this action due to the relocation and renaming of the Capitol VORTAC and to enhance the management of aircraft operations over the Springfield, IL area. 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 Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 45527 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.

SUMMARY: This action revises Very High Frequency Omni-directional Range 
(VOR) Federal Airways V-9, V-50, V-67, V-69, V-129, V-173 and V-233; 
and Jet Routes J-35, J-80, J-101 and J-137 over the Springfield, IL 
area. The FAA is taking this action due to the relocation of the 
Capital VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) and the renaming of the 
``Capital VORTAC'' to the ``Spinner VORTAC'' to enhance the management 
of aircraft operations over the Springfield, IL area.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On September 2, 2003, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) proposing to realign V-233 
northeast of the Capital VORTAC (68 FR 52150). This change was needed 
due to the pending relocation of the Capital VORTAC. This relocation 
will result in a change of the VORTAC radials used in the legal 
description of V-233; but would not have changed the legal description 
of any other airways or jet routes because, at the time that the NPRM 
was issued, the FAA did not plan to change the name of the VORTAC. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were 
received in response to the proposal.
    Subsequent to the issuance of the NPRM and in the interest of 
safety, a decision was made to change the name of the ``Capital 
VORTAC'' to the ``Spinner VORTAC''. Because the name of the VORTAC is 
contained in the legal description of Federal Airways V-9, V-50, V-67, 
V-69, V-129, V-173 and V-233; and Jet Routes J-35, J-80, J-101 and J-
137, the legal descriptions must be changed.
    Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 
7400.9M dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Federal airways listed 
in this document will be published subsequently in the order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by revising the legal descriptions for Federal Airways V-9, V-
50, V-67, V-69, V-129, V-173 and V-233; and Jet Routes J-35, J-80, J-
101 and J-137 over the Springfield, IL, area. The FAA is taking this 
action due to the relocation and renaming of the Capitol VORTAC and to 
enhance the management of aircraft operations over the Springfield, IL 
area.
    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 Department of Transportation (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.
