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 establish a high altitude RNAV route, designated Q–37, between the Pueblo, CO, VORTAC and the Fort Stockton, TX, VORTAC. The new route would provide pilots and air traffic controllers with an efficient alternative route around potentially constrained airspace during convective weather events in west Texas. Additionally, the new route would be integrated into the existing National Playbook Severe Weather Avoidance Plan routes to Houston, TX, terminal airports through Albuquerque Air Route Traffic Control Center’s airspace, in lieu of the current process of coordinating tactical modifications to routings with the FAA Air Traffic Control System Command Center. High altitude RNAV routes are published in paragraph 2006 of FAA Order 7400.9T signed August 27, 2009, and effective September 15, 2009, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV route listed in this E:\FR\FM\26OCP1.SGM 26OCP1 54944 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 205 / Monday, October 26, 2009 / Proposed Rules 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. 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.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish a high altitude RNAV route, 
designated Q-37, between the Pueblo, CO, VORTAC and the Fort Stockton, 
TX, VORTAC. The new route would provide pilots and air traffic 
controllers with an efficient alternative route around potentially 
constrained airspace during convective weather events in west Texas. 
Additionally, the new route would be integrated into the existing 
National Playbook Severe Weather Avoidance Plan routes to Houston, TX, 
terminal airports through Albuquerque Air Route Traffic Control 
Center's airspace, in lieu of the current process of coordinating 
tactical modifications to routings with the FAA Air Traffic Control 
System Command Center.
    High altitude RNAV routes are published in paragraph 2006 of FAA 
Order 7400.9T signed August 27, 2009, and effective September 15, 2009, 
which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV route 
listed in this

[[Page 54944]]

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. 
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 establishes an RNAV route to enhance the safe and efficient flow 
of traffic in the central United States.

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.
