AGENCY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports. SUMMARY: This rule is effective January 15, 2015. The compliance date for each SIAP, associated Takeoff Minimums, and ODP is specified in the amendatory provisions. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of January 15, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule amends Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 97 (14 CFR part 97), by establishing, amending, suspending, or revoking SIAPS, Takeoff Minimums and/or ODPS. The complete regulators description of each SIAP and its associated Takeoff Minimums or ODP for an identified airport is listed on FAA form documents which are incorporated by reference in this amendment under 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 1 CFR part 51, and 14 CFR part 97.20. The applicable FAA Forms are FAA Forms 8260–3, 8260–4, 8260–5, 8260–15A, and 8260–15B when required by an entry on 8260–15A. The large number of SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, in addition to their complex nature and the need for a special format make publication in the Federal Register expensive and impractical. Furthermore, airmen do not use the regulatory text of the SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums or ODPs, but instead refer to their depiction on charts printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. The advantages of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 2009 the complete description of each SIAP, Takeoff Minimums and ODP listed on FAA forms is unnecessary. This amendment provides the affected CFRs and specifies the types of SIAPs and the effective dates of the, associated Takeoff Minimums and ODPs. This amendment also identifies the airport and its location, the procedure, and the amendment number. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of each separate SIAP, Takeoff Minimums and ODP as contained in the transmittal. Some SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and textual ODP amendments may have been issued previously by the FAA in a Flight Data Center (FDC) Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) as an emergency action of immediate flight safety relating directly to published aeronautical charts. The circumstances which created the need for some SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP amendments may require making them effective in less than 30 days. For the remaining SIAPS and Takeoff Minimums and ODPS, an effective date at least 30 days after publication is provided. Further, the SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPS contained in this amendment are based on the criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS). In developing these SIAPS and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, the TERPS criteria were applied to the conditions existing or anticipated at the affected airports. Because of the close and immediate relationship between these SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedures before adopting these SIAPS, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and, where applicable, that good cause exists for making some SIAPs 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 anticipated impact is so minimal.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This final rule amends the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation’s regulation on Benefits Payable in Terminated Single-Employer Plans to prescribe interest assumptions under the regulation for valuation dates in February 2015. The interest assumptions are used for paying benefits under terminating singleemployer plans covered by the pension insurance system administered by PBGC. DATES: Effective February 1, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Catherine B. Klion (Klion.Catherine@ pbgc.gov), Assistant General Counsel for Regulatory Affairs, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, 1200 K Street NW., Washington, DC 20005, 202–326– 4024. (TTY/TDD users may call the Federal relay service toll-free at 1–800– 877–8339 and ask to be connected to 202–326–4024.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PBGC’s regulation on Benefits Payable in Terminated Single-Employer Plans (29 CFR part 4022) prescribes actuarial assumptions—including interest assumptions—for paying plan benefits under terminating single-employer plans covered by title IV of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. The interest assumptions in the regulation are also published on PBGC’s Web site (http://www.pbgc.gov). PBGC uses the interest assumptions in appendix B to part 4022 to determine whether a benefit is payable as a lump sum and to determine the amount to pay. Appendix C to part 4022 contains interest assumptions for private-sector pension practitioners to refer to if they PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 wish to use lump-sum interest rates determined using PBGC’s historical methodology. Currently, the rates in appendices B and C of the benefit payment regulation are the same. The interest assumptions are intended to reflect current conditions in the financial and annuity markets. Assumptions under the benefit payments regulation are updated monthly. This final rule updates the benefit payments interest assumptions for February 2015.1 The February 2015 interest assumptions under the benefit payments regulation will be 1.00 percent for the period during which a benefit is in pay status and 4.00 percent during any years preceding the benefit’s placement in pay status. In comparison with the interest assumptions in effect for January 2015, these interest assumptions are unchanged. PBGC has determined that notice and public comment on this amendment are impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This finding is based on the need to determine and issue new interest assumptions promptly so that the assumptions can reflect current market conditions as accurately as possible. Because of the need to provide immediate guidance for the payment of benefits under plans with valuation dates during February 2015, PBGC finds that good cause exists for making the assumptions set forth in this amendment effective less than 30 days after publication. PBGC has determined that this action is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under the criteria set forth in Executive Order 12866. Because no general notice of proposed rulemaking is required for this amendment, the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 does not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 601(2). List of Subjects in 29 CFR Part 4022 Employee benefit plans, Pension insurance, Pensions, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements.

The authority citation for part 4022 continues to read as follows: ■ 1 Appendix B to PBGC’s regulation on Allocation of Assets in Single-Employer Plans (29 CFR part 4044) prescribes interest assumptions for valuing benefits under terminating covered single-employer plans for purposes of allocation of assets under ERISA section 4044. Those assumptions are updated quarterly. E:\FR\FM\15JAR1.SGM 15JAR1

Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and 
Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard 
Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums 
and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. 
These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or 
revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National 
Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational 
facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. 
These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the 
navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under 
instrument flight rules at the affected airports.

DATES: This rule is effective January 15, 2015. The compliance date for 
each SIAP, associated Takeoff Minimums, and ODP is specified in the 
amendatory provisions.
    The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in 
the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as 
of January 15, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule amends Title 14 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations, Part 97 (14 CFR part 97), by establishing, 
amending, suspending, or revoking SIAPS, Takeoff Minimums and/or ODPS. 
The complete regulators description of each SIAP and its associated 
Takeoff Minimums or ODP for an identified airport is listed on FAA form 
documents which are incorporated by reference in this amendment under 5 
U.S.C. 552(a), 1 CFR part 51, and 14 CFR part 97.20. The applicable FAA 
Forms are FAA Forms 8260-3, 8260-4, 8260-5, 8260-15A, and 8260-15B when 
required by an entry on 8260-15A.
    The large number of SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, in addition 
to their complex nature and the need for a special format make 
publication in the Federal Register expensive and impractical. 
Furthermore, airmen do not use the regulatory text of the SIAPs, 
Takeoff Minimums or ODPs, but instead refer to their depiction on 
charts printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. The advantages 
of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the 
complete description of each SIAP, Takeoff Minimums and ODP listed on 
FAA forms is unnecessary. This amendment provides the affected CFRs and 
specifies the types of SIAPs and the effective dates of the, associated 
Takeoff Minimums and ODPs. This amendment also identifies the airport 
and its location, the procedure, and the amendment number.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of 
each separate SIAP, Takeoff Minimums and ODP as contained in the 
transmittal. Some SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and textual ODP amendments 
may have been issued previously by the FAA in a Flight Data Center 
(FDC) Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) as an emergency action of immediate 
flight safety relating directly to published aeronautical charts. The 
circumstances which created the need for some SIAP and Takeoff Minimums 
and ODP amendments may require making them effective in less than 30 
days. For the remaining SIAPS and Takeoff Minimums and ODPS, an 
effective date at least 30 days after publication is provided.
    Further, the SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPS contained in this 
amendment are based on the criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for 
Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS). In developing these SIAPS and 
Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, the TERPS criteria were applied to the 
conditions existing or anticipated at the affected airports. Because of 
the close and immediate relationship between these SIAPs, Takeoff 
Minimums and ODPs, and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and 
public procedures before adopting these SIAPS, Takeoff Minimums and 
ODPs are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and, where 
applicable, that good cause exists for making some SIAPs 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 
anticipated impact is so minimal. For the same reason, the FAA 
certifies that this

[[Page 2010]]

amendment will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act.
