Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 124 / Friday, June 26, 2020 / Rules and Regulations Paragraph 6010(a) Airways. Environmental Review * The FAA has determined that this action of modifying VOR Federal airways V–128 and V–144 near Kankakee, IL, due to the VOR portion of the Kankakee, IL, VOR/DME being decommissioned, 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 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.

The ATS routes listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify Jet Route J–6, VOR Federal airways V–5, V–49, and V–243, and RNAV routes Q–68 and T–325. The planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC has made these amendments necessary. This rule also corrects the state listed for the Choo Choo VORTAC, located in Chattanooga, TN, from ‘‘GA’’ to ‘‘TN’’ in the V–5 and V–243 descriptions. The ATS route amendments are described below. J–6: J–6 extends between the Salinas, CA, VORTAC and the Albany, NY, VORTAC. The route segment between the Little Rock, AR, VORTAC and the Charleston, WV, VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing route remain as charted. Q–68: Q–68 extends between the Charleston, WV, VOR/DME and the OTTTO, VA, waypoint located near the Linden, VA, VORTAC. The route is extended westward from the Charleston, WV, VOR/DME to the LITTR, AR, waypoint established near the Little Rock, AR, VORTAC. The unaffected portions of the existing route remain as charted. V–5: V–5 extends between the Pecan, GA, VOR/DME and the Appleton, OH, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Choo Choo, TN, VORTAC and the New Hope, KY, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–49: V–49 extends between the Vulcan, AL, VORTAC and the Mystic, KY, VOR. The airway segment between the Nashville, TN, VORTAC and the Mystic, KY, VOR is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–243: V–243 extends between the Craig, FL, VORTAC and the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Choo Choo, TN, VORTAC and the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. T–325: T–325 extends between the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC and the Terre Haute, IN, VORTAC. The Bowling Green, KY (BWG), route point is changed from being listed as a ‘‘VORTAC’’ to a ‘‘DME’’. Additionally, the Bowling Green, KY, ‘‘BWG’’ identifier and Terre Haute, IN, ‘‘TTH’’ identifier are added to the first line of the route description and the geographic coordinates of each route point are expressed in degrees, minutes, seconds, and hundredths of a second. The existing RNAV route remains as charted. The NAVAID radials listed in the ATS 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this 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 The FAA has determined that this action of modifying Jet Route J–6, VOR Federal airways V–5, V–49, and V–243, and RNAV routes Q–68 and T–325, due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC 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 Q–68 LITTR, AR to OTTTO, VA [Amended] LITTR, AR WP SOPIE, TN FIX Bowling Green, KY DME VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 Jun 25, 2020 Jkt 250001 PO 00000 Frm 00046 Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes; and Reporting Points).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Authority for This Rulemaking

    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 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 (NPRM) for Docket 
No. FAA-2020-0188 in the Federal Register (85 FR 16585; March 24, 
2020), amending Jet Route J-6, VOR Federal airways V-5, V-49, and V-
243, and RNAV routes Q-68 and T-325 in the vicinity of Bowling Green, 
KY. The amendments were necessary due to the planned decommissioning of 
the VOR portion of the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC. Interested parties 
were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting 
written comments on the proposal. No comments were received.
    Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004, RNAV Q-routes are 
published in paragraph 2006, VOR Federal airways are published in 
paragraph 6010(a), and RNAV T-routes are published in paragraph 6011 of

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 will be subsequently published in the Order.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 to modify Jet Route J-6, VOR Federal airways V-5, V-49, and V-
243, and RNAV routes Q-68 and T-325. The planned decommissioning of the 
VOR portion of the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC has made these amendments 
necessary. This rule also corrects the state listed for the Choo Choo 
VORTAC, located in Chattanooga, TN, from ``GA'' to ``TN'' in the V-5 
and V-243 descriptions. The ATS route amendments are described below.
    J-6: J-6 extends between the Salinas, CA, VORTAC and the Albany, 
NY, VORTAC. The route segment between the Little Rock, AR, VORTAC and 
the Charleston, WV, VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) is 
removed. The unaffected portions of the existing route remain as 
charted.
    Q-68: Q-68 extends between the Charleston, WV, VOR/DME and the 
OTTTO, VA, waypoint located near the Linden, VA, VORTAC. The route is 
extended westward from the Charleston, WV, VOR/DME to the LITTR, AR, 
waypoint established near the Little Rock, AR, VORTAC. The unaffected 
portions of the existing route remain as charted.
    V-5: V-5 extends between the Pecan, GA, VOR/DME and the Appleton, 
OH, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Choo Choo, TN, VORTAC and 
the New Hope, KY, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portions of the 
existing airway remain as charted.
    V-49: V-49 extends between the Vulcan, AL, VORTAC and the Mystic, 
KY, VOR. The airway segment between the Nashville, TN, VORTAC and the 
Mystic, KY, VOR is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing 
airway remain as charted.
    V-243: V-243 extends between the Craig, FL, VORTAC and the Bowling 
Green, KY, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Choo Choo, TN, VORTAC 
and the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions 
of the existing airway remain as charted.
    T-325: T-325 extends between the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC and the 
Terre Haute, IN, VORTAC. The Bowling Green, KY (BWG), route point is 
changed from being listed as a ``VORTAC'' to a ``DME''. Additionally, 
the Bowling Green, KY, ``BWG'' identifier and Terre Haute, IN, ``TTH'' 
identifier are added to the first line of the route description and the 
geographic coordinates of each route point are expressed in degrees, 
minutes, seconds, and hundredths of a second. The existing RNAV route 
remains as charted.
    The NAVAID radials listed in the ATS 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 will only affect air traffic 
procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this 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

    The FAA has determined that this action of modifying Jet Route J-6, 
VOR Federal airways V-5, V-49, and V-243, and RNAV routes Q-68 and T-
325, due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the 
Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC 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 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.
