Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V-82 and V-217, and area 
navigation (RNAV) route T-383 in the vicinity of Baudette, MN. The ATS 
route amendments were due to the planned decommissioning of the 
Baudette VOR. The FAA is delaying the effective date to coincide with 
the expected completion of the Minnesota Department of Transportation 
(DOT) purchase and flight check of a new Distance Measuring Equipment 
(DME) facility to support the Instrument Landing System (ILS) or 
Localizer (LOC) Approach to Runway (RWY) 31 instrument approach 
procedure, which is affected by the loss of the Baudette VOR, at 
Warroad International Memorial Airport, MN.

DATES: The effective date of the final rule published on February 21,

annual revision of FAA Order 7400.11 and publication of conforming 
amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The FAA published a final rule in the Federal Register for Docket 
No. FAA-2019-0729 (85 FR 10054, February 21, 2020), amending VOR 
Federal airways V-82 and V-217, and RNAV route T-383 in the vicinity of 
Baudette, MN. The effective date for that final rule is May 21, 2020. 
However, the decommissioning of the Baudette, MN, VOR has a direct 
impact on the ILS or LOC RWY 31 instrument approach procedure at 
Warroad International Memorial Airport, MN, because the DME required 
for this procedure is out of service.
    The Minnesota DOT is currently in the process of purchasing new DME 
equipment to install at the Warroad International Memorial Airport, MN. 
Upon purchase and installation of the new equipment, Minnesota DOT has 
committed to have the required Flight Inspection completed and the DME 
certified for use by September 10, 2020; therefore, the rule amending 
V-82, V-217, and T-383 is delayed to coincide with that date.
    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 VOR Federal airways and RNAV T-route 
listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

Good Cause for No Notice and Comment

    Section 553(b)(3)(B) of Title 5, United States Code, (the 
Administrative Procedure Act) authorizes agencies to dispense with 
notice and comment procedures for rules when the agency for ``good 
cause'' finds that those procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, 
or contrary to the public interest.'' Under this section, an agency, 
upon finding good cause, may issue a final rule without seeking comment 
prior to the rulemaking. The FAA finds that prior notice and public 
comment to this final rule is unnecessary due to the brief length of 
the extension of the effective date and the fact that there is no 
substantive change to the rule.''

Delay of Effective Date

    Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the 
effective date of the final rule, Airspace Docket 19-AGL-12, as 
published in the Federal Register on February 21, 2020 (85 FR 10054), 
FR Doc. 2020-03282, is hereby delayed until September 10, 2020.

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(f), 106(g); 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O.
