Persons interested in being placed on a mailing list for future NPRMs should contact the FAA’s Office of Rulemaking, (202) 267–9677, for a copy of Advisory Circular No. 11–2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application procedure. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to eliminate the segment of J–20 that extends between the Orlando VORTAC and the Virginia Key VOR/DME. The FAA has determined that this portion of J–20 is no longer required. Currently, J–20 parallels jet route J–53, between the Miami area and DEARY intersection (southeast of the Orlando VORTAC). At DEARY, J–20 makes a left turn to the Orlando VORTAC where it converges with J–53. This can cause a problem when aircraft are parallel on both J–20 and J–53. Jet route J–113 provides a suitable northbound replacement route for the J–20 segment. In addition, this change would provide air traffic control with more time to get climbing aircraft to their requested altitudes, thereby enhancing system efficiency. Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004 of FAA Order 7400.9T dated August 27, 2009 and effective September 15, 2009, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet route listed in this document would be subsequently published in the Order. E:\FR\FM\23OCP1.SGM 23OCP1 54766 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 204 / Friday, October 23, 2009 / Proposed Rules 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. Therefore, this proposed 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 proposed 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 modifies the route structure as required to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to eliminate the segment of J-20 that 
extends between the Orlando VORTAC and the Virginia Key VOR/DME. The 
FAA has determined that this portion of J-20 is no longer required. 
Currently, J-20 parallels jet route J-53, between the Miami area and 
DEARY intersection (southeast of the Orlando VORTAC). At DEARY, J-20 
makes a left turn to the Orlando VORTAC where it converges with J-53. 
This can cause a problem when aircraft are parallel on both J-20 and J-
53. Jet route J-113 provides a suitable northbound replacement route 
for the J-20 segment. In addition, this change would provide air 
traffic control with more time to get climbing aircraft to their 
requested altitudes, thereby enhancing system efficiency.
    Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004 of FAA Order 7400.9T 
dated August 27, 2009 and effective September 15, 2009, which is 
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet route listed in this 
document would be subsequently published in the Order.

[[Page 54766]]

    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. 
Therefore, this proposed 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 proposed 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 modifies the route structure as required to preserve the safe and 
efficient flow of air traffic.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures,'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
