History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for Docket No. FAA–2020–0306 in the Federal Register (85 FR 17792; March 31, 2020), amending VOR Federal airway V–52 in the vicinity of Bowling Green, KY, 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. Subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a rule for Docket No. FAA– 2020–0008 in the Federal Register (85 FR 26601; May 5, 2020), amending VOR Federal airway V–52 by removing the airway segment between the Pocket City, IN, VORTAC and the Bowling Green, KY, 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Irish Peace Process Cultural and Training Program Act of 1998, Public Law 105– 319, created what is commonly referred to as the Walsh Visa Program. This program allowed young people from disadvantaged areas of Northern Ireland and designated counties of the Republic of Ireland suffering from sectarian violence and high structural unemployment to temporarily enter the United States to develop job skills and conflict resolution abilities in a diverse, cooperative, peaceful, and prosperous environment. At the conclusion of their stay, these young people were expected to return to their homes better able to contribute toward economic regeneration and the Irish peace process. The Department promulgated the regulations at 22 CFR part 139 to implement the Walsh Visa Program. At the same time, the Department promulgated the regulations in Part 41 related to the Q2 and Q3 nonimmigrant visa classifications for eligible individuals. This visa program ended on September 30, 2008. Initially established with a September 20, 2005, SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\26JNR1.SGM 26JNR1

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 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 (NPRM) for Docket 
No. FAA-2020-0306 in the Federal Register (85 FR 17792; March 31, 
2020), amending VOR Federal airway V-52 in the vicinity of Bowling 
Green, KY, 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.
    Subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a rule for Docket No. 
FAA-2020-0008 in the Federal Register (85 FR 26601; May 5, 2020), 
amending VOR Federal airway V-52 by removing the airway segment between 
the Pocket City, IN, VORTAC and the Bowling Green, KY, 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 airway 
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 VOR Federal airway V-52 due to the planned 
decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC. 
The VOR Federal airway action is described below.
    V-52: V-52 extends between the Des Moines, IA, VORTAC and the 
Pocket City, IN, VORTAC; and between the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC and 
the Livingston, TN, VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME). The 
airway segment between the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC and the 
Livingston, TN, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portions of the 
existing airway remain as charted.
    The NAVAID radials listed in the V-52 description 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 VOR Federal 
airway V-52, due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of 
the Bowling Green, KY, VORTAC, 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.
