The amount to be recaptured is determined by a calculation specified in the borrower’s subsidy repayment agreement and is based on the borrower’s equity in the property at the time of loan pay off. If there is no equity based on the recapture calculation, the amount of principal reduction attributed to subsidy is not collected. The recapture calculation includes the amount of principal reduction attributed to subsidy plus the lesser of: * * * * * (ii) A portion of the value appreciation of the property subject to recapture. In order for the value appreciation to be calculated, the borrower will provide a current appraisal, including an appraisal for any capital improvements, or arm’s length sales contract as evidence of market value upon Agency request. Appraisals must meet Agency standards under § 3550.62. * * * * * Subpart E—Special Servicing 18. In § 3550.207, revise paragraphs (b)(2) and (c) and remove paragraph (d) to read as follows: ■ § 3550.207 Payment moratorium. * * * * * (b) * * * (2) At least 30 days before the moratorium is scheduled to expire, the borrower must provide financial information needed to process the reamortization of the loan(s). (c) Resumption of scheduled payments. When the moratorium expires or is cancelled, the loan will be re-amortized to include the amount deferred during the moratorium and the borrower will be required to escrow. If the new monthly payment, after consideration of the maximum amount of payment subsidy available to the borrower, exceeds the borrower’s repayment ability, all or part of the interest that has accrued during the moratorium may be forgiven so that the new monthly payment optimizes both affordability to the borrower as well as the best interest of the Government. § 3550.251 Property management and disposition. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION * Federal Aviation Administration * * * * (c) * * * (4) Sale of program REO properties. For no less than 30 days after a program REO property is listed for sale, the property will be reserved for sale to eligible direct or guaranteed single family housing very-low, low- or moderate income applicants under this part or part 3555 of this title, and for sale or lease to nonprofit organizations or public bodies providing transitional housing and turnkey housing for tenants of such transitional housing in accordance with 42 U.S.C. 11408a. Offers from eligible direct or guaranteed single family housing applicants are evaluated at the listed price, not the offering price. Priority of offers received the same day from eligible direct or guaranteed single family housing applicants will be given to applicants qualifying for veterans’ preference, cash offers from highest to lowest, then credit offers from highest to lowest. Acceptable offers of equal priority received on the same business day are selected by lot. After the expiration of a reservation period, REO properties can be bought by any buyer.

FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. Background The FAA is planning to decommission the Winner, SD (ISD), VOR in May 2020. The Winner VOR was one of the candidate VORs identified for discontinuance by the FAA’s VOR MON program and listed in the Final policy statement notice, ‘‘Provision of Navigation Services for the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) Transition to Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) (Plan for Establishing a VOR Minimum Operational Network),’’ published in the Federal Register of July 26, 2016 (81 FR 48694), Docket No. FAA–2011–1082. The ATS routes effected by the Winner VOR decommissioning are VOR Federal airway V–71 and RNAV route T–285.

To overcome the removal of the V–71 airway segments, the FAA plans to retain the current fixes located along those airway segments to assist pilots and air traffic controllers already familiar with them, for point-to-point navigation or radar vector purposes. Additionally, a new waypoint (LESNR) is being established overhead the Winner VOR location (within 60 feet) to retain that route point for navigation and radar vector purposes as well. Further, the FAA proposes to retain T–285 as it is charted today by replacing the Winner VOR route point with the new LESNR waypoint. The minor adjustment of the LESNR waypoint overhead the Winner VOR location (within 60 feet) is expected to be transparent to pilots flying the RNAV route and not change the charted depiction of T–285. Instrument flight rules (IFR) traffic could use the retained T–285 RNAV route, file point-to-point using the fixes and new LESNR waypoint that will remain in place, or receive air traffic control (ATC) radar vectors to continue operating through the affected area. Visual flight rules (VFR) pilots who elect to navigate via the airways through the affected area could also take advantage of the air traffic services previously listed. A number of minor editorial corrections to the T–285 legal description are also proposed to comply with RNAV route description policy guidance. The editorial corrections do not change the route’s structure, operational use, or charted depiction. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend VOR Federal airway V–71 and RNAV route T–285 due to the planned decommissioning of the Winner, SD, VOR. The proposed air traffic service (ATS) route actions are described below. V–71: V–71 currently extends between the Fighting Tiger, LA, VORTAC and the Williston, ND, VOR/ Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/ DME) NAVAIDs. The FAA proposes to remove the airway segment between the O’Neill, NE, VORTAC and the Pierre, SD, VORTAC. The unaffected portions of the existing airway would remain as charted. T–285: T–285 currently extends between the North Platte, NE, VORTAC E:\FR\FM\25NOP1.SGM 25NOP1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 227 / Monday, November 25, 2019 / Proposed Rules and the Huron, SD, VORTAC NAVAIDs. The FAA proposes to retain the route by replacing the Winner, SD, VOR route point with the new LESNR waypoint being established overhead the Winner VOR location. Additionally, the Rapid City VORTAC ‘‘RAP’’ identifier and Huron VORTAC ‘‘HON’’ identifier are added to the first line of the route description and the geographic coordinates of each route point are updated to be expressed in degrees, minutes, seconds, and hundredths of a second. The existing route would remain as charted. The NAVAID radials listed in the V– 71 airway description below are unchanged and stated in True degrees.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11D, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 8, 2019, and effective 
September 15, 2019. FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

Background

    The FAA is planning to decommission the Winner, SD (ISD), VOR in 
May 2020. The Winner VOR was one of the candidate VORs identified for 
discontinuance by the FAA's VOR MON program and listed in the Final 
policy statement notice, ``Provision of Navigation Services for the 
Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) Transition to 
Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) (Plan for Establishing a VOR Minimum 
Operational Network),'' published in the Federal Register of July 26, 
2016 (81 FR 48694), Docket No. FAA-2011-1082. The ATS routes effected 
by the Winner VOR decommissioning are VOR Federal airway V-71 and RNAV 
route T-285.
    With the planned decommissioning of the Winner VOR, the remaining 
ground-based NAVAID coverage in the area is insufficient to enable the 
continuity of V-71 within the affected area. As such, the proposed 
modification to V-71 would result in a gap in the airway with the 
airway segments between the O'Neill, NE, VOR/Tactical Air Navigation 
(VORTAC) and the Pierre, SD, VORTAC NAVAIDs being removed.
    To overcome the removal of the V-71 airway segments, the FAA plans 
to retain the current fixes located along those airway segments to 
assist pilots and air traffic controllers already familiar with them, 
for point-to-point navigation or radar vector purposes. Additionally, a 
new waypoint (LESNR) is being established overhead the Winner VOR 
location (within 60 feet) to retain that route point for navigation and 
radar vector purposes as well.
    Further, the FAA proposes to retain T-285 as it is charted today by 
replacing the Winner VOR route point with the new LESNR waypoint. The 
minor adjustment of the LESNR waypoint overhead the Winner VOR location 
(within 60 feet) is expected to be transparent to pilots flying the 
RNAV route and not change the charted depiction of T-285.
    Instrument flight rules (IFR) traffic could use the retained T-285 
RNAV route, file point-to-point using the fixes and new LESNR waypoint 
that will remain in place, or receive air traffic control (ATC) radar 
vectors to continue operating through the affected area. Visual flight 
rules (VFR) pilots who elect to navigate via the airways through the 
affected area could also take advantage of the air traffic services 
previously listed.
    A number of minor editorial corrections to the T-285 legal 
description are also proposed to comply with RNAV route description 
policy guidance. The editorial corrections do not change the route's 
structure, operational use, or charted depiction.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend VOR Federal airway V-71 and RNAV 
route T-285 due to the planned decommissioning of the Winner, SD, VOR. 
The proposed air traffic service (ATS) route actions are described 
below.
    V-71: V-71 currently extends between the Fighting Tiger, LA, VORTAC 
and the Williston, ND, VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) 
NAVAIDs. The FAA proposes to remove the airway segment between the 
O'Neill, NE, VORTAC and the Pierre, SD, VORTAC. The unaffected portions 
of the existing airway would remain as charted.
    T-285: T-285 currently extends between the North Platte, NE, VORTAC

[[Page 64797]]

and the Huron, SD, VORTAC NAVAIDs. The FAA proposes to retain the route 
by replacing the Winner, SD, VOR route point with the new LESNR 
waypoint being established overhead the Winner VOR location. 
Additionally, the Rapid City VORTAC ``RAP'' identifier and Huron VORTAC 
``HON'' identifier are added to the first line of the route description 
and the geographic coordinates of each route point are updated to be 
expressed in degrees, minutes, seconds, and hundredths of a second. The 
existing route would remain as charted.
    The NAVAID radials listed in the V-71 airway description below are 
unchanged and stated in True degrees.
    VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) and RNAV T-
routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA Order 7400.11D dated 
August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, which is incorporated 
by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The ATS routes listed in this document 
would be subsequently published in the Order.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    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. 
It, therefore: (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 will only affect air traffic 
procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, 
when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
