Amendment of VOR Federal Airways V-18, V-54, V-114, and V-583 in the Vicinity of Quitman, TX, 37560-37562 [2020-13337]

Download as PDF 37560 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 121 / Tuesday, June 23, 2020 / Rules and Regulations VOR/DME. The changes are described below. V–423: V–423 currently extends between the Williamsport, PA, VOR/ DME, and the Syracuse, NY, VORTAC. The FAA is removing the route segments between the Binghamton, NY, VOR/DME and Syracuse, NY. As amended, V–423 extends between Williamsport, PA, and Binghamton, NY. As an alternative, airway V–29 could be used for flights between Binghamton and Syracuse. V–428: V–428 currently extends between the Elmira, NY, VOR/DME and the Utica, NY, VORTAC. The FAA is removing the segments of V–428 between Elmira, NY, and the Georgetown, NY, VORTAC. As amended, V–428 extends between Georgetown, NY, and Utica, NY. Airways V–35 and V–14 provide alternative routing between Elmira and Georgetown. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES Regulatory Notices and Analyses 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 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. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action of amending VOR Federal airways V–423, and V–428 near Ithaca, NY, qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act and its implementing regulations at 40 CFR part 1500, and in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, paragraph 5–6.5a, which categorically excludes from further environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 Jun 22, 2020 Jkt 250001 (see 14 CFR part 71, Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes; and Reporting Points). As such, this action is not expected to result in any potentially significant environmental impacts. In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5–2 regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, the FAA has reviewed this action for factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically excluded action may have a significant environmental impact requiring further analysis. The FAA has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in E:\FR\FM\23JNR1.SGM 23JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 121 / Tuesday, June 23, 2020 / Rules and Regulations jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 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 National Airspace System. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA–2019–0893 in the Federal Register (84 FR 67881; December 12, 2019), amending VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V–18, V–54, V– 114, and V–583 in the vicinity of Quitman, TX, due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Quitman, TX, VOR/DME. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. Subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a rule for Docket No. FAA– 2018–1028 in the Federal Register (85 FR 13731; March 10, 2020), amending VOR Federal airway V–18 by removing the airway segment between the Vulcan, AL, VORTAC and the Colliers, SC, VORTAC. That airway amendment was effective May 21, 2020. The FAA published a second rule subsequent to the NPRM for Docket No. FAA–2020– 0006 in the Federal Register (85 FR 25285, May 1, 2020), further amending V–18 by removing the airway segment between the Millsap, TX, VORTAC and the Cedar Creek, TX, VORTAC. That airway amendment was effective July 16, 2020. These airway amendments are included in this rule. Additionally, subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a rule for Docket No. FAA–2020–0010 in the Federal Register (85 FR 27114; May 7, 2020), amending VOR Federal airway V–583 by removing the airway segment between the Paris, TX, VOR/DME and the McAlester, OK, VORTAC. That airway amendment, effective July 16, 2020, is included in this rule. VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 7400.11D dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 Jun 22, 2020 Jkt 250001 71.1. The VOR Federal airways listed in this document would be subsequently published in the Order. Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends 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. Differences From the Proposal The Choo Choo VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) NAVAID listed in the V–54 description is actually located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. As such, the state abbreviation for the NAVAID listed in the description should reflect the abbreviation ‘‘TN’’ instead of ‘‘GA’’. This editorial correction to the V–54 description is included in this action. The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airways V– 18, V–54, V–114, and V–583. The planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Quitman, TX, VOR/DME NAVAID has made this action necessary. The VOR Federal airway changes are outlined below. V–18: V–18 extends between the Cedar Creek, TX, VORTAC and the Vulcan, AL, VORTAC; and between the Colliers, SC, VORTAC and the Charleston, SC, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Cedar Creek, TX, VORTAC and the Belcher, LA, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–54: V–54 extends between the Waco, TX, VORTAC and the Kinston, NC, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Cedar Creek, TX, VORTAC and the Texarkana, AR, VORTAC is removed. Additionally, an editorial correction changes the state abbreviation for the Choo Choo VORTAC listed in the description from ‘‘GA’’ to ‘‘TN’’. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–114: V–114 extends between the Panhandle, TX, VORTAC and the Eaton, MS, VORTAC, excluding the portion within restricted areas R–3801B and R– 3701C when active. The airway segment between the Bonham, TX, VORTAC and the Gregg County, TX, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted.

The airway segment between the Frankston, TX, VOR/DME and the Paris, TX, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. All radials in the route descriptions below are unchanged and stated in True degrees. 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 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.

PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 I. Summary of Rule The Indian Child Protection and Family Violence Prevention Act, 25 U.S.C. 3201 et seq., requires the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe minimum standards of character for positions that involve duties and responsibilities involving regular contact with, or control over, Indian children. The Department prescribed the minimum standards of character in its regulations at 25 CFR 63.12 and 63.19. As a result, no applicant, volunteer, or employee of Interior may be placed in a position with regular contract with or control over Indian children if that person has been found guilty of, or entered a plea of nolo contendere or guilty to, certain offenses. Before 2000, the offenses listed in the regulation matched the offenses listed in the Act: Any offense under Federal, State, or Tribal law involving crimes of violence, sexual assault, sexual molestation, sexual exploitation, sexual contact or prostitution, or crimes against persons. In 2000, Congress updated the Act to clarify which types of offenses are disqualifying. See Public Law 106–568, revising 25 U.S.C. 3207(b). Specifically, the 2000 updates replaced ‘‘any offense’’ with ‘‘any felonious offense, or any of two or more misdemeanor offenses,’’ and added ‘‘offenses committed against children.’’ This interim final rule would update the Department’s regulations, at sections 63.12 and 63.19, to reflect the updated language of the Act and add a definition to define the phrase ‘‘offenses committed against children.’’ The definition is the same as the Indian Health Service (IHS) definition of ‘‘offenses committed against children’’ in the regulations establishing minimum standards of character under the Indian Child Protection and Family Violence Prevention Act for those working in the IHS. See 42 CFR 136.403. Using the same definition provides consistency in these standards across Federal agencies. This rule also includes an explanation of whether a conviction, or plea of nolo contendere or guilty, should be considered if there has been a pardon, expungement, set aside, or other court order of the conviction or plea. As the IHS regulation provides, this rule provides that all convictions or pleas of nolo contendere or guilty should be considered in making a determination unless a pardon, expungement, set aside or other court order reaches the plea of guilty, plea of nolo contendere, or the finding of guilt. See 42 CFR 136.407. Including this contingency also provides consistency in the standards across Federal agencies. E:\FR\FM\23JNR1.SGM 23JNR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in

[[Page 37561]]

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 National Airspace 
System.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. 
FAA-2019-0893 in the Federal Register (84 FR 67881; December 12, 2019), 
amending VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V-18, V-54, V-
114, and V-583 in the vicinity of Quitman, TX, due to the planned 
decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Quitman, TX, VOR/DME. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were 
received.
    Subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a rule for Docket No. 
FAA-2018-1028 in the Federal Register (85 FR 13731; March 10, 2020), 
amending VOR Federal airway V-18 by removing the airway segment between 
the Vulcan, AL, VORTAC and the Colliers, SC, VORTAC. That airway 
amendment was effective May 21, 2020. The FAA published a second rule 
subsequent to the NPRM for Docket No. FAA-2020-0006 in the Federal 
Register (85 FR 25285, May 1, 2020), further amending V-18 by removing 
the airway segment between the Millsap, TX, VORTAC and the Cedar Creek, 
TX, VORTAC. That airway amendment was effective July 16, 2020. These 
airway amendments are included in this rule.
    Additionally, subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a rule for 
Docket No. FAA-2020-0010 in the Federal Register (85 FR 27114; May 7, 
2020), amending VOR Federal airway V-583 by removing the airway segment 
between the Paris, TX, VOR/DME and the McAlester, OK, VORTAC. That 
airway amendment, effective July 16, 2020, is included in this rule.
    VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) 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 
listed in this document would be subsequently published in the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends 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.

Differences From the Proposal

    The Choo Choo VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) NAVAID listed in 
the V-54 description is actually located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. As 
such, the state abbreviation for the NAVAID listed in the description 
should reflect the abbreviation ``TN'' instead of ``GA''. This 
editorial correction to the V-54 description is included in this 
action.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airways V-18, V-54, V-114, and V-583. 
The planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Quitman, TX, VOR/
DME NAVAID has made this action necessary. The VOR Federal airway 
changes are outlined below.
    V-18: V-18 extends between the Cedar Creek, TX, VORTAC and the 
Vulcan, AL, VORTAC; and between the Colliers, SC, VORTAC and the 
Charleston, SC, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Cedar Creek, TX, 
VORTAC and the Belcher, LA, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions 
of the existing airway remain as charted.
    V-54: V-54 extends between the Waco, TX, VORTAC and the Kinston, 
NC, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Cedar Creek, TX, VORTAC and 
the Texarkana, AR, VORTAC is removed. Additionally, an editorial 
correction changes the state abbreviation for the Choo Choo VORTAC 
listed in the description from ``GA'' to ``TN''. The unaffected 
portions of the existing airway remain as charted.
    V-114: V-114 extends between the Panhandle, TX, VORTAC and the 
Eaton, MS, VORTAC, excluding the portion within restricted areas R-
3801B and R-3701C when active. The airway segment between the Bonham, 
TX, VORTAC and the Gregg County, TX, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected 
portions of the existing airway remain as charted.
    V-583: V-583 extends between the Centex, TX, VORTAC and the Paris, 
TX, VOR/DME. The airway segment between the Frankston, TX, VOR/DME and 
the Paris, TX, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portions of the 
existing airway remain as charted.
    All radials in the route descriptions below are unchanged and 
stated in True degrees.
    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 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 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.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action of modifying VOR Federal 
airways V-18, V-54, V-114, and V-583 due to the planned decommissioning 
of the VOR portion of the Quitman, TX, VOR/DME NAVAID qualifies for 
categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act and 
its implementing regulations at 40 CFR part 1500, and in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, 
paragraph 5-6.5a, which categorically excludes from further 
environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify 
classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points (see 
14 CFR part 71, Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; 
Air Traffic Service Routes; and Reporting Points). As such, this action 
is not expected to result in any potentially significant environmental 
impacts. In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5-2 regarding 
Extraordinary Circumstances, the FAA has reviewed this action for 
factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically excluded 
action may have

[[Page 37562]]

a significant environmental impact requiring further analysis. The FAA 
has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant 
preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact 
study.
