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 PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the National Airspace System. History The FAA published a NPRM for Docket No. FAA–2020–0294 in the Federal Register (85 FR 22047; April 21, 2020), amending RNAV routes T–325 and T–354 to expand the availability of RNAV routing in support of NextGen efforts to transition the NAS from a ground-based to satellite-based PBN system. 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– 2019–1105 in the Federal Register (85 FR 38785; June 29, 2020), amending RNAV route T–354 by changing the Siren, WI (RZN), route point listed as a VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (‘‘VOR/DME’’) to ‘‘DME’’. That airway amendment, effective September 10, 2020, is included in this rule. Additionally, subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA determined the RNAV route T–325 modifications proposed in the NPRM require additional coordination and flight inspection activities. As a result, the T–325 modifications are removed from this rule and will be reworked in a separate rulemaking action. United States 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 RNAV route listed in this document will 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. The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify RNAV route T–354. The RNAV route change is described below. T–354: T–354 extends between the Park Rapids, MN, VOR/DME and the Siren, WI, DME. The Siren DME is removed and replaced with the SSKYY, WI, waypoint (WP) (located over the Siren DME), and the route is extended E:\FR\FM\20AUR1.SGM 20AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 162 / Thursday, August 20, 2020 / Rules and Regulations southeastward from the SSKYY, WI, WP to the Cunningham, KY, VOR/DME. The following points are added between the SSKYY WP and the Cunningham VOR/ DME: TONOC, WI, FIX; KOETZ, WI, WP; HRMNN, WI, WP; FOMAG, WI, WP; MAYSE, WI, WP; HOMRC, IL, WP; CPTON, IL, WP; BLLUE, IL, WP; BOSTN, IL, WP; and the Bible Grove, IL, VORTAC. The unaffected segments of the existing route remain as charted. 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 RNAV route T–354 to expand the availability of RNAV routing in support of NextGen modernization efforts to transition the NAS from a ground-based to satellitebased PBN system 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 51325 determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study.

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 NPRM for Docket No. FAA-2020-0294 in the 
Federal Register (85 FR 22047; April 21, 2020), amending RNAV routes T-
325 and T-354 to expand the availability of RNAV routing in support of 
NextGen efforts to transition the NAS from a ground-based to satellite-
based PBN system. 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-2019-1105 in the Federal Register (85 FR 38785; June 29, 2020), 
amending RNAV route T-354 by changing the Siren, WI (RZN), route point 
listed as a VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (``VOR/DME'') to ``DME''. 
That airway amendment, effective September 10, 2020, is included in 
this rule.
    Additionally, subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA determined the RNAV 
route T-325 modifications proposed in the NPRM require additional 
coordination and flight inspection activities. As a result, the T-325 
modifications are removed from this rule and will be reworked in a 
separate rulemaking action.
    United States 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 RNAV route 
listed in this document will 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.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 to modify RNAV route T-354. The RNAV route change is described 
below.
    T-354: T-354 extends between the Park Rapids, MN, VOR/DME and the 
Siren, WI, DME. The Siren DME is removed and replaced with the SSKYY, 
WI, waypoint (WP) (located over the Siren DME), and the route is 
extended

[[Page 51325]]

southeastward from the SSKYY, WI, WP to the Cunningham, KY, VOR/DME. 
The following points are added between the SSKYY WP and the Cunningham 
VOR/DME: TONOC, WI, FIX; KOETZ, WI, WP; HRMNN, WI, WP; FOMAG, WI, WP; 
MAYSE, WI, WP; HOMRC, IL, WP; CPTON, IL, WP; BLLUE, IL, WP; BOSTN, IL, 
WP; and the Bible Grove, IL, VORTAC. The unaffected segments of the 
existing route remain as charted.
    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 RNAV route T-
354 to expand the availability of RNAV routing in support of NextGen 
modernization efforts to transition the NAS from a ground-based to 
satellite-based PBN system 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.
