No. 506] IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace under instrument conditions in the affected areas. DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, May 2, 2013.

Box 25082, Oklahoma City, OK 73125) telephone: (405) 954–4164. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This amendment to part 95 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 95) amends, suspends, or revokes IFR altitudes governing the operation of all aircraft in flight over a specified route or any portion of that route, as well as the changeover points (COPs) for Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes as prescribed in part 95. The Rule The specified IFR altitudes, when used in conjunction with the prescribed changeover points for those routes, ensure navigation aid coverage that is adequate for safe flight operations and free of frequency interference. The reasons and circumstances that create the need for this amendment involve matters of flight safety and operational efficiency in the National Airspace System, are related to published aeronautical charts that are essential to the user, and provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. In addition, those various reasons or circumstances require making this amendment effective before the next scheduled charting and publication date of the flight information to assure its timely availability to the user. The effective date of this amendment reflects those considerations. In view of the close and immediate relationship between these regulatory changes and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedure before adopting this amendment are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and that good cause exists for making the amendment effective in less than 30 days. Conclusion 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. It, therefore—(1) is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the nticipated E:\FR\FM\08APR1.SGM 08APR1

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is withdrawing the 
final rule ``Designation of Product Categories for Federal 
Procurement'' published April 1, 2013, at 78 FR 19393. The final 
rulemaking, which amended the Guidelines for Designating Biobased 
Products for Federal Procurement, to add eight sections to designate 
product categories within which biobased products will be afforded 
Federal procurement preference, was published prematurely due to an 
oversight in the development process.

DATES: The final rule published April 1, 2013 (78 FR 19393) is 
withdrawn effective April 8, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ron Buckhalt, USDA, Office of 
Procurement and Property Management, Room 361, Reporters Building, 300

correspondence.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 1, 2013, USDA published a final 
rule, to be effective May 1, 2013, amending the Guidelines for 
Designating Biobased Products for Federal Procurement, to add eight 
sections to designate product categories within which biobased products 
will be afforded Federal procurement preference, as provided for under 
section 9002 of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, as 
amended by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008. The rule 
also adds a new subcategory to one previously designated product 
category and establishes minimum biobased contents for each of these 
product categories and subcategories. The rule also changes the term 
``item'' to product category.
    Due to an oversight in the development process, USDA published the 
final rule prematurely and, therefore, is withdrawing it. OPPM 
anticipates republishing the rulemaking in the coming months.
