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. Background The SKY VOR/DME facility is scheduled to be decommissioned due to the Griffing Sandusky airport property on which it is located being sold and developed into something other than an airport. Additionally, the FAA lease on the property for the SKY VOR/DME ends in September 2014. With the decommissioning of the SKY VOR/ DME, ground-based navigation aid (NAVAID) coverage is insufficient to enable the continuity of the affected airways. The proposed modifications to VOR Federal airways V–6, V–30, V–126, V–133, and V–416 would result in a gap in the route structures, as well as the proposed removal of VOR Federal airway V–65. Route segments supported by other NAVAIDs would be retained. To mitigate the decommissioning of the SKY VOR/DME facility and the proposed non-continuous route structures, adjacent VOR Federal airways would remain available. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify VOR Federal airways V–6, V–30, V–126, V–133, and V–416, and remove V–65 in the vicinity of Sandusky, OH. These proposed changes are necessary due to the scheduled decommissioning of the SKY VOR/DME. The proposed route modifications are outlined below. V–6: V–6 extends from the Oakland, CA (OAK), VOR Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) to the DuPage, IL (DPA), VOR/DME, and from the intersection of the Chicago Heights, IL (CGT), VORTAC 358° and Gipper, MI (GIJ), VORTAC 271° radials (NILES fix) to the La Guardia, NY (LGA), VOR/DME. The route segment between the Waterville, OH (VWV), VOR/DME and Dryer, OH (DJB), VOR/DME facilities would be removed and aircraft flying between VWV and DJB would be routed using other existing adjacent airways. E:\FR\FM\17JNP1.SGM 17JNP1 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 34454 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 116 / Tuesday, June 17, 2014 / Proposed Rules V–30: V–30 extends from the Badger, WI (BAE), VORTAC to the Solberg, NJ (SBJ), VOR/DME. The route segment between the VWV VOR/DME and DJB VOR/DME facilities would be removed and aircraft flying between VWV and DJB would be routed using other existing adjacent airways. V–65: V–65 extends from the DJB VOR/DME to the Carleton, MI (CRL), VORTAC. This route would be removed completely and aircraft flying between DJB and CRL would be routed using other existing adjacent airways. V–126: V–126 extends from the intersection of the Peotone, IL (EON), VORTAC 053° and Knox, IN (OXI), VOR/DME 297° radials (BEARZ fix) to the Stonyfork, PA (SFK), VOR/DME. The route segment between the VWV VOR/DME and DJB VOR/DME facilities would be removed and aircraft flying between VWV and DJB would be routed using other existing adjacent airways. V–133: V–133 extends from the intersection of the Charlotte, NC (CLT), VOR/DME 305° and Barretts Mountain, NC (BZM), VOR/DME 197° radials (LINCO fix) to the Red Lake, ON, Canada (YRL), VOR/DME, excluding the airspace within Canada. The route segment between the Mansfield, OH (MFD), VORTAC and Salem, MI (SVM), VORTAC facilities would be removed and aircraft flying between MFD and SVM would be routed using other existing adjacent airways. V–416: V–416 extends from the Rosewood, OH (ROD), VORTAC to the intersection of the MFD VORTAC 045° and SKY VOR/DME 107° radials (JAKEE fix). Since the JAKEE fix is defined using a radial from the SKY VOR, the fix is being redefined in its same location using radials from the MFD VORTAC and DJB VOR/DME to retain the route unchanged. With the exception of the Dryer, OH, VOR/DME radial information contained in the regulatory text V–416 description, the navigation aid radials cited in the proposed VOR Federal airways descriptions are stated relative to True north. Domestic VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 7400.9X dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal airways listed in this document would be subsequently published 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) VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:34 Jun 16, 2014 Jkt 232001 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 would only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, would 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 would modify the route structure as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the NAS. 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. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). The Proposed Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 34455 I. Executive Summary of Rule This is a proposed rule to comprehensively update and streamline the process for obtaining BIA grants of rights-of-way on Indian land. The current regulations were promulgated in 1968, and last updated in 1980. In December 2012, the Department issued final regulations comprehensively reforming residential, business, and wind and solar leasing on Indian land and streamlining the leasing process. Given the supportive response to the leasing regulatory revisions, we are updating 25 CFR 169 (Rights-of-Way) to mirror those revisions to the extent applicable in the rights-of-way context. Highlights of the proposed rights-of-way revisions include: Æ Eliminating the need to obtain BIA consent for surveying in preparation for a right-of-way; Æ Establishing timelines for BIA review of rights-of-way requests; Æ Clarifying processes for BIA review of right-of-way documents; Æ Allowing BIA disapproval only where there is a stated compelling reason; Æ Providing greater deference to Tribes on compensation for rights-ofway; Æ Clarifying the authority by which BIA approves rights-of-way; and Æ Eliminating outdated requirements specific to different types of rights-ofway. Together, these revisions will modernize the rights-of-way approval process while better supporting Tribal self-determination. This rule also updates the regulations to be in a question-and-answer format, in compliance with ‘‘plain language’’ requirements. II. Summary of All Revisions to 25 CFR Part 169 The following table summarizes revisions to part 169, by showing where the substance of each section of the current rule is in the proposed rule and describing the changes.

Background

    The SKY VOR/DME facility is scheduled to be decommissioned due to 
the Griffing Sandusky airport property on which it is located being 
sold and developed into something other than an airport. Additionally, 
the FAA lease on the property for the SKY VOR/DME ends in September 
2014. With the decommissioning of the SKY VOR/DME, ground-based 
navigation aid (NAVAID) coverage is insufficient to enable the 
continuity of the affected airways. The proposed modifications to VOR 
Federal airways V-6, V-30, V-126, V-133, and V-416 would result in a 
gap in the route structures, as well as the proposed removal of VOR 
Federal airway V-65. Route segments supported by other NAVAIDs would be 
retained. To mitigate the decommissioning of the SKY VOR/DME facility 
and the proposed non-continuous route structures, adjacent VOR Federal 
airways would remain available.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify VOR Federal airways V-6, V-30, 
V-126, V-133, and V-416, and remove V-65 in the vicinity of Sandusky, 
OH. These proposed changes are necessary due to the scheduled 
decommissioning of the SKY VOR/DME. The proposed route modifications 
are outlined below.
    V-6: V-6 extends from the Oakland, CA (OAK), VOR Tactical Air 
Navigation (VORTAC) to the DuPage, IL (DPA), VOR/DME, and from the 
intersection of the Chicago Heights, IL (CGT), VORTAC 358[deg] and 
Gipper, MI (GIJ), VORTAC 271[deg] radials (NILES fix) to the La 
Guardia, NY (LGA), VOR/DME. The route segment between the Waterville, 
OH (VWV), VOR/DME and Dryer, OH (DJB), VOR/DME facilities would be 
removed and aircraft flying between VWV and DJB would be routed using 
other existing adjacent airways.

[[Page 34454]]

    V-30: V-30 extends from the Badger, WI (BAE), VORTAC to the 
Solberg, NJ (SBJ), VOR/DME. The route segment between the VWV VOR/DME 
and DJB VOR/DME facilities would be removed and aircraft flying between 
VWV and DJB would be routed using other existing adjacent airways.
    V-65: V-65 extends from the DJB VOR/DME to the Carleton, MI (CRL), 
VORTAC. This route would be removed completely and aircraft flying 
between DJB and CRL would be routed using other existing adjacent 
airways.
    V-126: V-126 extends from the intersection of the Peotone, IL 
(EON), VORTAC 053[deg] and Knox, IN (OXI), VOR/DME 297[deg] radials 
(BEARZ fix) to the Stonyfork, PA (SFK), VOR/DME. The route segment 
between the VWV VOR/DME and DJB VOR/DME facilities would be removed and 
aircraft flying between VWV and DJB would be routed using other 
existing adjacent airways.
    V-133: V-133 extends from the intersection of the Charlotte, NC 
(CLT), VOR/DME 305[deg] and Barretts Mountain, NC (BZM), VOR/DME 
197[deg] radials (LINCO fix) to the Red Lake, ON, Canada (YRL), VOR/
DME, excluding the airspace within Canada. The route segment between 
the Mansfield, OH (MFD), VORTAC and Salem, MI (SVM), VORTAC facilities 
would be removed and aircraft flying between MFD and SVM would be 
routed using other existing adjacent airways.
    V-416: V-416 extends from the Rosewood, OH (ROD), VORTAC to the 
intersection of the MFD VORTAC 045[deg] and SKY VOR/DME 107[deg] 
radials (JAKEE fix). Since the JAKEE fix is defined using a radial from 
the SKY VOR, the fix is being redefined in its same location using 
radials from the MFD VORTAC and DJB VOR/DME to retain the route 
unchanged.
    With the exception of the Dryer, OH, VOR/DME radial information 
contained in the regulatory text V-416 description, the navigation aid 
radials cited in the proposed VOR Federal airways descriptions are 
stated relative to True north.
    Domestic VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of 
FAA Order 7400.9X dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 
2013, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR 
Federal airways listed in this document would be subsequently published 
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 
would only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, would 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 would modify the route structure as necessary to preserve the 
safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the NAS.

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.
