DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 71 [Docket No. FAA–2008–0038; Airspace Docket No. 07–ANM–16] Establishment of Low Altitude Area Navigation Route (T-Route); Southwest Oregon Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES SUMMARY: This action establishes a low altitude Area Navigation (RNAV) route, designated T–274 in the State of Oregon. T-routes are low altitude Air Traffic Service (ATS) routes, based on RNAV, for use by aircraft having instrument flight rules (IFR)-approved Global Positioning System (GPS)/Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) equipment. The FAA is taking this action to enhance safety and improve the efficient use of the navigable airspace in Oregon. DATES: Effective Date: 0901UTC, September 25, 2008. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On February 14, 2008, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish a low altitude T-route in southwest Oregon (73 FR 8628). VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:15 Jul 02, 2008 Jkt 214001 Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on this proposal to the FAA. Four comments were received in response to the NPRM, each supporting the establishment of the route and recommending lower minimum en route altitudes (MEA). The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association recommended the FAA modify its proposal to ensure that T–274 has a lower MEA than current Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways. Regarding route altitudes, the charted depiction will include MEA requirements which are established in accordance with 14 CFR part 95. The establishment of MEAs is outside the scope of this rule. Low altitude RNAV routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA Order 7400.9R signed August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The low altitude RNAV routes listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. The Rule This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 establishes a low altitude RNAV route in southwest Oregon. The route is designated T–274, and will be depicted on the appropriate IFR En Route Low Altitude charts. T-routes are low altitude RNAV ATS routes, similar to VOR Federal airways, but based on GNSS navigation. RNAV-equipped aircraft capable of filing flight plan equipment suffix ‘‘G’’ may file for these routes. The T-route described in this rule will enhance safety, and facilitate more flexible and efficient use of the navigable airspace for en route IFR operations transitioning through mountainous terrain of southwest Oregon. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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. 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 the 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 an RNAV T-route in southwest Oregon. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 311a, 311b, and 311k. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background A. AMDUCA The Animal Medicinal Drug Use Clarification Act of 1994 (AMDUCA) (Public Law 103–396) was signed into law on October 22, 1994. It amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) to permit licensed veterinarians to prescribe extralabel uses of approved animal and human drugs in animals. In the Federal Register of November 7, 1996 (61 FR 57732), we published the implementing regulations (codified at part 530 (21 CFR part 530)) for AMDUCA. The sections regarding prohibition of extralabel use of drugs in animals are § § 530.21, 530.25, and 530.30. These sections describe the basis for issuing an order prohibiting an PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 extralabel drug use in animals and the procedure to be followed in issuing an order of prohibition. We may issue a prohibition order if we find that extralabel use of a drug in animals presents a risk to the public health. Under § 530.3(e), this means that we have evidence demonstrating that the use of the drug has caused, or likely will cause an adverse event. Section 530.25 provides for a public comment period of not less than 60 days. It also provides that the order of prohibition become effective 90 days after the date of publication, unless we revoke or modify the order, or extend the period of public comment. The list of drugs prohibited from extralabel use is found in § 530.41. B. Cephalosporins Cephalosporins are members of the blactam class of antimicrobials. These antimicrobials work by targeting synthesis of the bacterial cell wall, resulting in increased permeability and eventual hydrolysis of the cell. Members of the cephalosporin class have a blactam ring fused to a sulfur-containing ring-expanded system (Ref. 1). Certain cephalosporins are currently approved for use in a number of animal species. These approved uses include the treatment of respiratory disease in cattle, swine, sheep, and goats, as well as acute bovine interdigital necrobacillosis, acute metritis, and clinical and sub-clinical mastitis in cattle. They are also approved for the control of bovine respiratory disease, and the control of early mortality associated with Escherichia coli infections in day-old chicks and poults. Furthermore, approved animal uses of cephalosporins include the treatment of skin and soft tissue infections in dogs and cats, genitourinary tract infections (cystitis) in dogs, and respiratory tract infections in horses. Cephalosporins are also some of the most widely used antimicrobial agents in human medicine. Older agents are widely used as therapy for skin and soft tissue infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes, as well as treatment of upper respiratory tract infections, intra-abdominal infections, pelvic inflammatory disease, and diabetic foot infections. Newer cephalosporins, with or without aminoglycosides, have been considered drugs of choice for serious infections caused by Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Proteus, Providencia, Serratia, and Haemophilus spp. These cephalosporins are also used to treat systemic salmonellosis, although not specifically approved for this purpose.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On February 14, 2008, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish a low altitude T-
route in southwest Oregon (73 FR 8628). Interested parties were invited 
to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments 
on this proposal to the FAA. Four comments were received in response to 
the NPRM, each supporting the establishment of the route and 
recommending lower minimum en route altitudes (MEA). The Aircraft 
Owners and Pilots Association recommended the FAA modify its proposal 
to ensure that T-274 has a lower MEA than current Very High Frequency 
Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways. Regarding route altitudes, 
the charted depiction will include MEA requirements which are 
established in accordance with 14 CFR part 95. The establishment of 
MEAs is outside the scope of this rule.
    Low altitude RNAV routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA 
Order 7400.9R signed August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 2007, 
which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The low altitude 
RNAV routes listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishes a low altitude RNAV route in southwest Oregon. The 
route is designated T-274, and will be depicted on the appropriate IFR 
En Route Low Altitude charts. T-routes are low altitude RNAV ATS 
routes, similar to VOR Federal airways, but based on GNSS navigation. 
RNAV-equipped aircraft capable of filing flight plan equipment suffix 
``G'' may file for these routes.
    The T-route described in this rule will enhance safety, and 
facilitate more flexible and efficient use of the navigable airspace 
for en route IFR operations transitioning through mountainous terrain 
of southwest Oregon.
    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.
    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 the 
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 an RNAV T-route in southwest Oregon.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 311a, 311b, and 311k. This airspace action is 
not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental 
impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant 
preparation of an environmental assessment.
