Modification of VOR Federal Airway V-537, GA, 37105-37106 [2013-14660]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 119 / Thursday, June 20, 2013 / Rules and Regulations Background DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION On May 21, 2013, the FAA published a final rule in the Federal Register establishing five RNAV routes in the Washington, DC area (78 FR 29615). Subsequent to publication, it was determined that the name of the MORTY, MD WP (which is common to the legal descriptions of RNAV routes T–291 and T–295) needs to be changed due to its proximity to a similar sounding and spelled fix, MORTO. Potential safety concerns were identified due to the possibility for confusion of the points in radio communications and onboard Flight Management System data entry. To resolve this concern, the FAA is changing the name ‘‘MORTY, MD’’ to ‘‘BAABS, MD’’ in the descriptions of T– 291 and T–295. This is a name change only. The latitude/longitude coordinates remain the same. Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA Order 7400.9W, dated August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV routes listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Federal Aviation Administration Correction to Final Rule Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the name ‘‘MORTY, MD WP’’ as published in the Federal Register on May 21, 2013 (78 FR 29615; FR Doc. 2013–11969) for RNAV routes T–291 and T–295, is corrected under the descriptions as follows: Paragraph 6011—United States Area Navigation Routes * T–291 * * * * [Corrected] On page 29616, line 36, Remove ‘‘MORTY, MD WP (Lat. 39°19′51″ N., long. 076°24′41″ W.)’’ and insert ‘‘BAABS, MD WP (Lat. 39°19′51″ N., long. 076°24′41″ W.)’’ T–295 [Corrected] mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES On page 29616.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: History On October 15, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify V–537 in Georgia (77 FR 62468). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on this proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequently, a flight inspection was conducted to evaluate the usability of the proposed amended portion of V– 537. That flight inspection found a portion of the originally proposed route amendment to be unsatisfactory. Specifically, a radial from the Macon, GA, VORTAC that had been planned to form an intersection along the route between the Greenville, FL, VORTAC and the Macon, GA, VORTAC, did not pass the expanded service volume validation. After considering other alternatives, the FAA opted to propose terminating V–537 at the Greenville VORTAC and eliminate the segment between Greenville and Macon. The FAA issued a supplemental NPRM (SNPRM) (78 FR 21856, April 12, 2013) PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 37105 to reopen the comment period and solicit comments on the proposed further modification of V–537.

The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify VOR Federal airway V–537 due to the scheduled decommissioning of the Moultrie, GA, VOR/DME, which currently forms a point along the route. This action modifies V–537 by eliminating the route segments between the Greenville, FL, VORTAC and the Macon, GA, VORTAC. The modified V– 537 extends between Palm Beach, FL, and Greenville, FL.

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.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This final rule amends HUD’s regulations governing the Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Program (Section 202) and the Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities Program (Section 811) to streamline the requirements applicable to Section 202 and Section 811 mixed-finance developments. This rule removes restrictions on the portions of developments not funded through capital advances, lifts barriers on participation in the development of the projects, and eliminates burdensome funding requirements. These changes are anticipated to attract private capital and the expertise of the private developer community to create attractive and affordable supportive housing developments for the elderly and for persons with disabilities. Through this rule, HUD also brings upto-date certain regulations governing all Section 202 and Section 811 developments, not solely mixed-finance developments. Overall, the changes made by this rule permit greater flexibility in the design of Section 202/ 811 units, and extend the duration of the availability of capital advance funds. This final rule is part of a larger effort to reform the Section 202 and Section 811 programs, which will include implementation of the changes made to these programs by the Frank Melville Supportive Housing Investment Act of 2010 and the Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Act of 2010. A subsequent rule, which will focus on the statutory changes that require rulemaking for implementation, is expected to be published in 2013. DATES: Effective Date: July 22, 2013.

Executive Summary A. Purpose of the Regulatory Action The regulatory amendments made by this rule are designed to provide greater flexibility in the design, construction, and management of Section 202/811 mixed-finance developments, to increase such development. The Section 202/811 mixed-finance program, established by interim and final rules issued in 2003 and 2005,1 allows for the participation of the private developer community, leveraging their capital and expertise, to create attractive and affordable supportive housing developments for the elderly or persons with disabilities. In light of the current housing market, with limited private financing for the development of supportive housing, this rule streamlines requirements pertaining to mixed-finance developments to attract private capital for the development of mixed-finance housing. This rule allows for more flexibility in such areas as the drawdown of capital advance funds and noncapital advance funds and removes certain restrictions relating to noncapital advance funds. In addition, this rule would update certain regulations governing all Section 202 and Section 811 developments, which have not been updated since 2005, to conform to changes in law, policy, and practices that affect these developments. B. Summary of the Major Provisions of the Regulatory Action This final rule updates the regulations governing mixed-finance developments for the Section 202 and Section 811 programs. This rule amends several definitions used in the mixed-finance development program, based on changes to these terms made by the Frank Melville Supportive Housing Investment Act of 2010 and the Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Act of 2010. These changes lessen restrictions with respect to who can be an owner. In addition, this rule removes the restriction on using HUD funds for certain amenities, exempts contracts for sale of land between owner and sponsor from conflict of interest provisions, clarifies what constitutes substantial rehabilitation, requires smoke detectors 1 See HUD rules published on December 1, 2003, at 68 FR 67316, and on September 13, 2005, at 70 FR 54200.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On October 15, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify V-537 in Georgia (77 FR 
62468). Interested parties were invited to participate in this 
rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on this proposal to 
the FAA. No comments were received.
    Subsequently, a flight inspection was conducted to evaluate the 
usability of the proposed amended portion of V-537. That flight 
inspection found a portion of the originally proposed route amendment 
to be unsatisfactory. Specifically, a radial from the Macon, GA, VORTAC 
that had been planned to form an intersection along the route between 
the Greenville, FL, VORTAC and the Macon, GA, VORTAC, did not pass the 
expanded service volume validation. After considering other 
alternatives, the FAA opted to propose terminating V-537 at the 
Greenville VORTAC and eliminate the segment between Greenville and 
Macon. The FAA issued a supplemental NPRM (SNPRM) (78 FR 21856, April 
12, 2013) to reopen the comment period and solicit comments on the 
proposed further modification of V-537. No comments were received in 
response the SNPRM.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 to modify VOR Federal airway V-537 due to the scheduled 
decommissioning of the Moultrie, GA, VOR/DME, which currently forms a 
point along the route. This action modifies V-537 by eliminating the 
route segments between the Greenville, FL, VORTAC and the Macon, GA, 
VORTAC. The modified V-537 extends between Palm Beach, FL, and 
Greenville, FL.
    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

    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

States. Except for editorial changes, this rulemaking is the same as 
published in the SNPRM.

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 is not expected to cause any 
potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary 
circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental 
assessment.
