DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration VORTAC and the Portland VOR/DME. No comments were received in response the SNPRM. (m) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs) 14 CFR Part 71 The Rule [Docket No. FAA–2012–1004; Airspace Docket No. 12–ANM–21] The FAA is amending Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airway V– 595 due to the scheduled decommissioning of the Portland, OR, VOR/DME. This action removes that segment of V–595 between the Portland, OR, VOR/DME and the Deschutes, OR, VORTAC. By separate rulemaking action, the FAA has proposed to establish new area navigation routes (Troutes) to provide additional navigation options in the affected area (78 FR 4354, January 22, 2013. VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 7400.9W signed August 8, 2012 and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal airway listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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 a VOR Federal airway due to navigation aid infrastructure changes.

The original proposal would have terminated V–595 at the HARZL navigation fix which is approximately 29 NM southeast of the Portland VOR/ DME. Subsequent to publication of the NPRM, it was determined that mountainous terrain in the area would limit the service volume of the Deschutes, OR, VORTAC to a degree that the Deschutes VORTAC could not be used to identify the entire length of the proposed segment between Deschutes and the HARZL fix. Consequently, the FAA issued a supplemental NPRM (SNPRM) (78 FR 9009, February 7, 2013) to solicit comments on a proposed further modification of V–595 to delete the entire segment between Deschutes PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\25APR1.SGM 25APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 80 / Thursday, April 25, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 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.

The EPA is approving the SIP revisions submitted by the State of Oregon on February 16, 2001, July 14, 2005, August 28, 2006, and May 20, 2008. These revisions relate to open burning rules, enforcement procedures, civil penalties, and procedures in contested cases (appeals). On January 7, 2013 (78 FR 918) the EPA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR), proposing approval of the revisions. The NPR includes a detailed description and analysis of the revisions, and rationale for this final action. A brief summary is provided below. Oregon’s February 16, 2001 submittal recodifies and revises the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s (ODEQ) open burning regulations, now codified at OAR 340–264. The EPA proposed to determine that the revisions to OAR 340–264 either clarify or do not affect the overall stringency of the ODEQ’s open burning regulations, and that approval of the revisions will not interfere with attainment or maintenance of the NAAQS or other requirements of the CAA as described in the EPA’s proposed rule. Oregon’s July 14, 2005, August 28, 2006, and May 20, 2008 SIP submittals relate to enforcement procedures, civil penalties, and procedures in contested cases (appeals). OAR 340–012 Enforcement Procedures and Civil Penalties contains enforcement procedures and civil penalty provisions that apply to the air quality regulations in the Oregon SIP. The revisions to OAR 340–012 clarify the differences between formal and informal enforcement processes, make adjustments to the penalty matrices, and streamline and reorganize the rules to more closely track the ODEQ’s enforcement and penalty calculation process. The EPA proposed to find that these revisions continue to provide the ODEQ with adequate authority for enforcing the SIP as required by Section 110 of the CAA and 40 CFR 51.230(b). OAR 340–011 Rules of General Applicability and Organization contain procedures in contested cases (appeals of the ODEQ actions). The EPA proposed to determine that these rule revisions improve the clarity and completeness of contested case appeals coming before the Environmental Quality Commission and provide the authority needed for implementing the SIP. EPA provided a 30-day review and comment period on the January 7, 2013 (78 FR 918) NPR. No comments were received on the NPR and the EPA is now taking final action to approve the proposed revisions.

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

SUMMARY: This action modifies VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) Federal 
airway V-595 in Oregon due to the scheduled decommissioning of the 
Portland, OR, VOR/DME navigation aid, which currently serves as an end 
point for the route.

DATES: Effective date 0901 UTC, June 27, 2013. 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 October 22, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify V-595 in Oregon (77 FR 
64444). Interested parties were invited to participate in this 
rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on this proposal to 
the FAA. No comments were received.
    The original proposal would have terminated V-595 at the HARZL 
navigation fix which is approximately 29 NM southeast of the Portland 
VOR/DME. Subsequent to publication of the NPRM, it was determined that 
mountainous terrain in the area would limit the service volume of the 
Deschutes, OR, VORTAC to a degree that the Deschutes VORTAC could not 
be used to identify the entire length of the proposed segment between 
Deschutes and the HARZL fix.
    Consequently, the FAA issued a supplemental NPRM (SNPRM) (78 FR 
9009, February 7, 2013) to solicit comments on a proposed further 
modification of V-595 to delete the entire segment between Deschutes 
VORTAC and the Portland VOR/DME. No comments were received in response 
the SNPRM.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airway V-595 due to the scheduled 
decommissioning of the Portland, OR, VOR/DME. This action removes that 
segment of V-595 between the Portland, OR, VOR/DME and the Deschutes, 
OR, VORTAC. By separate rulemaking action, the FAA has proposed to 
establish new area navigation routes (T-routes) to provide additional 
navigation options in the affected area (78 FR 4354, January 22, 2013.
    VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 
7400.9W signed August 8, 2012 and effective September 15, 2012, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal airway 
listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.
    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 only affects air traffic 
procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when 
promulgated, does 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 a VOR Federal airway due to navigation aid 
infrastructure changes.

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. This airspace action consists of a modification of an 
existing airway and is not expected to cause any potentially 
significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances 
exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.
