Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 179 / Tuesday, September 16, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. 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 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 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 controlled airspace at CynthianaHarrison County Airport, Cynthiana, KY. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This action modifies three RNAV Q-routes and establishes five Qroutes originating in Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center’s (ARTCC) airspace. The routes promote operational efficiencies for users and provide connectivity to current and proposed RNAV en route and terminal procedures. Also, two waypoints and a fix name is changed for Q–120, and Q– 128, as the proposed names already were in use. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 On June 9, 2014, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify three RNAV Q-routes and establish 5 Qroutes originating in Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center’s (ARTCC) airspace (79 FR 32883). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. Differences From the NPRM This rule changes the name of 3 waypoints. For Q–120, MENSE waypoint is changed to BETBE and LIITL waypoint is changed to TRAKY. For Q–128, NOBBY is changed to VLUST. The coordinates for these waypoints remain the same. These waypoint name changes were necessary as the proposed names already were in use or proposed in another project. The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 modifying 3 RNAV Q-routes and establishing 5 Q-routes originating in E:\FR\FM\16SER1.SGM 16SER1 asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES 55358 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 179 / Tuesday, September 16, 2014 / Rules and Regulations the Oakland ARTCC airspace. The routes run generally west-east, connecting the San Francisco and Los Angeles terminal areas with destinations to the east. The modified routes connect to new Standard Instrument Departure (SID) and Standard Terminal Arrival (STAR) procedures as designed in the Northern California (NorCal) Metroplex. The routes provide options to traverse or circumnavigate the restricted area R– 2508 complex. The routes are described below. Q–120: Q–120 extends between the Sacramento, CA, VORTAC (SAC) and the Redwood Falls, MN, VOR/DME (RWF). The modifications remove the SAC VORTAC at the west end of the route and replace it with the new ORRCA waypoint (WP). Additional WPs are added along the route. On the east end, the RWF VOR/DME is removed from the route and a new endpoint is established using the existing UFFDA WP, MN. The UFFDA WP is located approximately 41 nautical miles (NM) west of the RWF VOR/DME, thereby shortening the length of Q–120 by that distance. Two waypoints along the route, MENSE and LIITL, are renamed BETBE and TRAKY, respectively. Q–128: Q–128 extends between the Linden, CA, VORTAC (LIN) and the Memphis, TN, VORTAC (MEM). The modifications remove the LIN VORTAC from the route and is replaced with the new SYRAH, CA, WP. The SYRAH WP is located approximately 7 NM southwest of the LIN VORTAC. The Bartlesville, OK, VOR/DME (BVO) is removed from the route and replaced with the VEGUC, OK, WP (approximately 12 NM southeast of the BVO) VOR/DME. The Razorback, AR, VORTAC (RZC) is also removed from the route and replaced by the renamed VLUST, AR, WP. The VLUST WP is approximately 1 NM northeast of RZC VORTAC. The MEM VORTAC is removed from the route and replaced by the MUDHO, MS, WP (approximately 7 NM southwest of the MEM VORTAC). From the MUDHO WP, Q–128 is extended by approximately 160 NM to the southeast terminating at the new east end JILLS, AL, WP. The JILLS WP is located approximately 11 NM northwest of the Crimson, AL, VORTAC (LDK). Q130: Q130 extends between the LIN VORTAC and the Panhandle, TX, VORTAC (PNH). The modifications remove the LIN VORTAC from route and replace it with the new SYRAH, CA, WP. The Rattlesnake, NM, VORTAC (RSK) is also replaced by the new HASSL, UT, WP; and the existing TAHIB, UT, WP, is inserted between the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:12 Sep 15, 2014 Jkt 232001 ROCCY, UT, WP and the DIXAN, NM, WP. The PNH VORTAC remains as the eastern endpoint of Q–130. The changes to Q–120, Q–128, and Q–130 support Performance Based Navigation procedures into or out of terminal areas and reduce the reliance on ground-based navigation aids by replacing some facilities in the route descriptions with GPS waypoints. The following new routes are established: Q–158: Q–158 extends from a new NTELL, CA, WP (located west of restricted area R–2508, near the Clovis, CA, VORTAC (CZQ), transiting through the northern part of R–2508, and the new JEDNA, NV, WP (northwest of Las Vegas, NV). Q–160: Q–160 begins at the new SHVVR, CA, WP, then transits through the northern part of R–2508, and ends at the existing BIKKR, CA, WP, where it links to Q–158. Q–162: Q–162 extends between the NTELL WP and the MYCAL, NV, WP. From NTELL, Q–162 circumnavigates around the north end of R–2508 through the existing CABAB, CA, WP and the KENNO, NV, WP, then turns southeastward through the gap between restricted areas R–2508 and R–4807A/ R–4808N, to the MYCAL WP, where it links to Q–158. Q–164: Q–164 extends between the NTELL, CA, WP and the existing ROCCY, UT, WP. Q–164 provides eastand west-bound routing north of the R– 2508 and R–4807/R–4808 complexes. Q–166: Q–166 begins at the VIKSN, CA, WP, then transits through the northeast corner of R–2508, and ends at the BIKKR, CA, WP. Q–166 connects with Q–162 at the VIKSN WP and with Q–158 and Q–160 at the BIKKR WP. It should be noted that the routes that transit through R–2508 (i.e., Q–158, Q– 160 and Q–166) are only available during times when the restricted airspace has been released to the FAA for joint use in accordance with a joint use agreement. This action promotes user operational efficiencies and provides connectivity to current and proposed RNAV en route and terminal procedures. High altitude RNAV routes are published in paragraph 2006 of FAA Order 7400.9Y dated August 6, 2014, and effective September 15, 2014, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV routes listed in this document are subsequently published 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 PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 the route structure as required to enhance the safe and efficient flow of air traffic in the western United States. 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: Policy 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.

ACTION: Interim rule. AGENCY: Through a final rule published on September 7, 2012, HUD revised the regulations for FHA’s program for insurance of health care facilities under section 232 of the National Housing Act (Section 232 program). In the September 7, 2012, final rule, HUD retained the longstanding requirement that owners and borrowers participating in the Section 232 program submit audited financial statements to HUD, and added the requirement that operators of Section 232 facilities also submit financial statements to HUD on a quarterly and annual basis. However, the September 7, 2012, rule placed operators on a different submission deadline than that required of owners. This interim rule revises the financial reporting deadlines for operators to bring them in-line with the reporting periods prescribed in HUD’s Uniform Financial Reporting Standards, to which owners and borrowers are subject. DATES: Effective date: October 16, 2014. Comment due date: November 17, 2014.

Background Section 232 of the National Housing Act (12 U.S.C. 1715w) (Section 232) authorizes FHA to insure mortgages made by private lenders to finance the development of nursing homes, intermediate care facilities, board and care homes, and assisted living facilities (collectively, residential healthcare facilities). The Section 232 program allows for long-term, fixed-rate financing for new and rehabilitated properties for up to 40 years. Existing properties without rehabilitation can be financed with or without Ginnie Mae® 1 Mortgage Backed Securities for up to 35 years. Eligible borrowers under the Section 232 program include investors, builders, developers, public entities, and private nonprofit corporations and associations. The documents executed at loan closing provide that the borrower may not engage in any other business or activity. As the need for residential care facilities increased, requests to FHA to make mortgage insurance available for such facilities also increased. Updates to the Section 232 program regulations, codified at 24 CFR part 232, were needed to ensure that program requirements are sufficient to meet increased demand, and prevent mortgage defaults that not only impose a risk to the FHA insurance fund but can jeopardize the safety and stability of Section 232 facilities and their residents. B. September 7, 2012 Regulatory Revisions In 2012, HUD commenced the rulemaking process to make the updates needed to the Section 232 program regulations, regulations that had not been revised since 1996. By final rule published on September 7, 2012, at 77 FR 55120, HUD revised the Section 232 1 Ginnie Mae is a registered service mark of the Government National Mortgage Association; see http://www.ginniemae.gov/.

RIN 2120-AA66


Modification and Establishment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Routes; 
Western United States

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This action modifies three RNAV Q-routes and establishes five 
Q-routes originating in Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center's 
(ARTCC) airspace. The routes promote operational efficiencies for users 
and provide connectivity to current and proposed RNAV en route and 
terminal procedures. Also, two waypoints and a fix name is changed for 
Q-120, and Q-128, as the proposed names already were in use.

DATES: Effective date 0901 UTC, November 13, 2014. 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 June 9, 2014, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice 
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify three RNAV Q-routes and 
establish 5 Q-routes originating in Oakland Air Route Traffic Control 
Center's (ARTCC) airspace (79 FR 32883). Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written 
comments on the proposal. No comments were received.

Differences From the NPRM

    This rule changes the name of 3 waypoints. For Q-120, MENSE 
waypoint is changed to BETBE and LIITL waypoint is changed to TRAKY. 
For Q-128, NOBBY is changed to VLUST. The coordinates for these 
waypoints remain the same. These waypoint name changes were necessary 
as the proposed names already were in use or proposed in another 
project.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 modifying 3 RNAV Q-routes and establishing 5 Q-routes 
originating in

[[Page 55358]]

the Oakland ARTCC airspace. The routes run generally west-east, 
connecting the San Francisco and Los Angeles terminal areas with 
destinations to the east. The modified routes connect to new Standard 
Instrument Departure (SID) and Standard Terminal Arrival (STAR) 
procedures as designed in the Northern California (NorCal) Metroplex. 
The routes provide options to traverse or circumnavigate the restricted 
area R-2508 complex. The routes are described below.
    Q-120: Q-120 extends between the Sacramento, CA, VORTAC (SAC) and 
the Redwood Falls, MN, VOR/DME (RWF). The modifications remove the SAC 
VORTAC at the west end of the route and replace it with the new ORRCA 
waypoint (WP). Additional WPs are added along the route. On the east 
end, the RWF VOR/DME is removed from the route and a new endpoint is 
established using the existing UFFDA WP, MN. The UFFDA WP is located 
approximately 41 nautical miles (NM) west of the RWF VOR/DME, thereby 
shortening the length of Q-120 by that distance. Two waypoints along 
the route, MENSE and LIITL, are renamed BETBE and TRAKY, respectively.
    Q-128: Q-128 extends between the Linden, CA, VORTAC (LIN) and the 
Memphis, TN, VORTAC (MEM). The modifications remove the LIN VORTAC from 
the route and is replaced with the new SYRAH, CA, WP. The SYRAH WP is 
located approximately 7 NM southwest of the LIN VORTAC. The 
Bartlesville, OK, VOR/DME (BVO) is removed from the route and replaced 
with the VEGUC, OK, WP (approximately 12 NM southeast of the BVO) VOR/
DME. The Razorback, AR, VORTAC (RZC) is also removed from the route and 
replaced by the renamed VLUST, AR, WP. The VLUST WP is approximately 1 
NM northeast of RZC VORTAC. The MEM VORTAC is removed from the route 
and replaced by the MUDHO, MS, WP (approximately 7 NM southwest of the 
MEM VORTAC). From the MUDHO WP, Q-128 is extended by approximately 160 
NM to the southeast terminating at the new east end JILLS, AL, WP. The 
JILLS WP is located approximately 11 NM northwest of the Crimson, AL, 
VORTAC (LDK).
    Q130: Q130 extends between the LIN VORTAC and the Panhandle, TX, 
VORTAC (PNH). The modifications remove the LIN VORTAC from route and 
replace it with the new SYRAH, CA, WP. The Rattlesnake, NM, VORTAC 
(RSK) is also replaced by the new HASSL, UT, WP; and the existing 
TAHIB, UT, WP, is inserted between the ROCCY, UT, WP and the DIXAN, NM, 
WP. The PNH VORTAC remains as the eastern endpoint of Q-130.
    The changes to Q-120, Q-128, and Q-130 support Performance Based 
Navigation procedures into or out of terminal areas and reduce the 
reliance on ground-based navigation aids by replacing some facilities 
in the route descriptions with GPS waypoints.
    The following new routes are established:
    Q-158: Q-158 extends from a new NTELL, CA, WP (located west of 
restricted area R-2508, near the Clovis, CA, VORTAC (CZQ), transiting 
through the northern part of R-2508, and the new JEDNA, NV, WP 
(northwest of Las Vegas, NV).
    Q-160: Q-160 begins at the new SHVVR, CA, WP, then transits through 
the northern part of R-2508, and ends at the existing BIKKR, CA, WP, 
where it links to Q-158.
    Q-162: Q-162 extends between the NTELL WP and the MYCAL, NV, WP. 
From NTELL, Q-162 circumnavigates around the north end of R-2508 
through the existing CABAB, CA, WP and the KENNO, NV, WP, then turns 
southeastward through the gap between restricted areas R-2508 and R-
4807A/R-4808N, to the MYCAL WP, where it links to Q-158.
    Q-164: Q-164 extends between the NTELL, CA, WP and the existing 
ROCCY, UT, WP. Q-164 provides east- and west-bound routing north of the 
R-2508 and R-4807/R-4808 complexes.
    Q-166: Q-166 begins at the VIKSN, CA, WP, then transits through the 
northeast corner of R-2508, and ends at the BIKKR, CA, WP. Q-166 
connects with Q-162 at the VIKSN WP and with Q-158 and Q-160 at the 
BIKKR WP.
    It should be noted that the routes that transit through R-2508 
(i.e., Q-158, Q-160 and Q-166) are only available during times when the 
restricted airspace has been released to the FAA for joint use in 
accordance with a joint use agreement.
    This action promotes user operational efficiencies and provides 
connectivity to current and proposed RNAV en route and terminal 
procedures.
    High altitude RNAV routes are published in paragraph 2006 of FAA 
Order 7400.9Y dated August 6, 2014, and effective September 15, 2014, 
which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV routes 
listed in this document are subsequently published 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 the route structure as required to enhance the safe and 
efficient flow of air traffic in the western United States.

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: Policy 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.
