Establishment of Low Altitude Area Navigation Routes (T-Routes); Sacramento and San Francisco, CA, 40721-40722 [E8-15932]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 137 / Wednesday, July 16, 2008 / Rules and Regulations dwashington3 on PRODPC61 with RULES Alaska (73 FR 15685). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on this proposal. No comments were received in response to the NPRM. Based on further analysis of Air Traffic Control requirements, this rule incorporates the inclusion of two additional intersections along V–619. The description of V–619 will include the intersections of the Port Heiden 044° radial and the Saldo 200° radial and the Dillingham 099° radial. With the exception of editorial changes, and the change described above, this amendment is the same as that proposed in the NPRM. Colored Federal airways and VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6009 and 6010, respectively, 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 Colored Federal airways and VOR 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 establishing three VOR Federal airways designated V–351, V–414, V–619 and one Colored Federal airway designated Amber 6 (A–6), in Alaska. The FAA is taking this action for the following reasons: (1) The conversion of these uncharted nonregulatory routes to Federal airways adds to the IFR airway and route infrastructure in Alaska; (2) pilots will be provided with minimum en route altitudes and minimum obstruction clearance altitude information; (3) this amendment establishes controlled airspace, thus eliminating some of the commercial IFR operations in uncontrolled airspace; and (4) the addition of these routes improves the management of air traffic operations and thereby enhances safety. 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:04 Jul 15, 2008 Jkt 214001 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 will enhance aviation safety in the state of Alaska. 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: Polices and Procedures. 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.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Customs and Border Protection (CBP) periodically reviews its regulations to ensure that they are current, correct, and consistent. Through this review process, CBP discovered a number of discrepancies. This document amends various sections of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations to remedy those discrepancies. DATES: The final rule is effective July 16, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Craig Walker, Regulations and Rulings, Office of International Trade, (202) 572– 8836. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background It is the policy of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to periodically review its regulations (title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations) to ensure that they are as accurate and up-to-date as possible so that the importing and general public are aware of CBP programs, requirements, and procedures regarding import-related activities. As part of this review policy, CBP has determined that certain corrections are necessary affecting parts 0, 4, 7, 12, 18, 24, 101, 103, 115, 123, 134, 141, 177, and 181 of the CBP regulations (19 CFR parts 0, 4, 7, 12, 18, 24, 101, 103, 115, 123, 134, 141, 177, 181). PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Discussion of Changes Part 0 of the CBP regulations (19 CFR 0), concerning transferred or delegated authority, is being amended to replace all references to ‘‘Customs regulations’’ with ‘‘CBP regulations’’. This is consistent with the transfer of the legacy U.S. Customs Service of the Department of the Treasury to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2003 and the subsequent renaming of the agency as U.S. Customs and Border Protection by DHS on March 31, 2007 (see 72 FR 20131, dated April 23, 2007). Certain specific authorities for part 4 of the CBP regulations (19 CFR part 4), concerning vessels in foreign and domestic trades, and coastwise procedures, are being amended to reflect the reorganization and re-codification of Title 46, United States Code (U.S.C.), pursuant to Pub. L. 109–304, 120 Stat. 1632 (October 6, 2006). Title 46 includes the coastwise laws (generally, the Jones Act and the Passenger Vessel Services Act), as well as other navigation laws that are administered by CBP. The re-codification does not change the substance of these laws, but merely reorganizes them. Accordingly, the outdated citations to the former Appendix to Title 46 in the specific authorities for part 4 are being removed, and the new citations to Title 46 are being added. Part 4 of the CBP regulations contains references to the Great Lakes endorsement of the Certification of Documentation issued by the U.S. Coast Guard. Section 12107 of Title 46, United States Code (46 U.S.C. 12107), which pertained to the Great Lakes endorsement of U.S. vessel documentation laws, was repealed by Pub. L. 104–324, Title XI, § 1115(a), 110 Stat. 3972 (Oct. 19, 1996). Accordingly, the outdated references to the Great Lakes endorsement are being deleted from §§ 4.0(c), 4.60(b)(2), 4.80(a)(2), 4.80(d), 4.82(c), 4.87(a), 4.88(a), 4.90(d), and 4.92. In addition, § 4.80(e), relating to restrictions on coastwise trade, is being amended to reflect amendments to the first and second provisos to 46 U.S.C. App. 883 (first proviso now found at 46 U.S.C. 12132(a), and second proviso now found at 46 U.S.C. 12101(a) and 12132(b)) affected by § 1120(e) of Pub. L. 104–324. Sections 7.2 through 7.4 of the CBP regulations (19 CFR 7.2–7.4), relating to customs relations with U.S. insular possessions, are being amended in this document to replace references to the ‘‘United States Customs Service’’ and ‘‘Customs’’ with ‘‘U.S. Customs and Border Protection’’ and ‘‘CBP’’, respectively, consistent with the E:\FR\FM\16JYR1.SGM 16JYR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On May 30, 2008, the FAA published in the Federal Register a final 
rule establishing four low altitude T-routes in the San Francisco 
terminal area (73 FR 31021). This rule was originally scheduled to 
become effective July 31, 2008; however, a need for additional internal 
processing requires a delay in the effective date until September 25, 
2008.

The Rule

    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 RNAV T-Routes at Sacramento and San Francisco, CA.
