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 for Docket No. FAA–2020–0642 in the Federal Register (85 FR 47928; August 7, 2020), amending VOR Federal airways V–25, V–27, V–494, V–108, V–301, and RNAV route T–257 in the vicinity of Santa Rosa, CA, due to the planned decommissioning of the Santa Rosa, CA, VOR/DME NAVAID. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) and United States Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA Order 7400.11E dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1.

E:\FR\FM\04JNR1.SGM 04JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 106 / Friday, June 4, 2021 / Rules and Regulations The Rule The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending VOR Federal airways V– 25, V–27, V–494, V–108, V–301, and RNAV route T–257. The planned decommissioning of the Santa Rosa, CA, VOR/DME has made this action necessary. The VOR Federal airway and United States Area Navigation route actions are described below. V–25: V–25 extends between Mission Bay, CA and Wenatchee, WA. The FAA will amend V–25 to reflect the new description of the GETER intersection. The GETER intersection will be redefined amending the position on radials from Point Reyes and Mendocino VORs. The unaffected portions of the existing airway will remain as charted. V–27: V–27 extends between Mission Bay, CA and Seattle, WA. The FAA will amend the description of the GETER intersection to reflect new position on radials from the Point Reyes, CA, VOR/ DME and the Mendocino, CA, VOR. The unaffected portions of the existing airway will remain as charted. V–494: V–494 extends from Crescent City, CA to Hazen, NV. The FAA will amend the legal description by removing the reference to the Santa Rosa, CA, VOR/DME and establishing an intersection (ROZZA) utilizing radials from Point Reyes, CA, VOR/DME and the Scaggs Island, CA, VOR Collocated Tactical Air Navigation System (VORTAC). The unaffected portion of the existing airway will remain as charted. V–108: V–108 extends from Santa Rosa, CA to Hill City, KS. The FAA will amend the route removing references to the Santa Rosa, CA, VOR/DME and referring to the newly established ROZZA intersection utilizing radials from the Point Reyes, CA, VOR/DME and the Scaggs Island, CA, VORTAC. The unaffected portion of the existing airway will remain as charted. V–301: V–301 extends from Panoche, CA to Williams, CA. The FAA will amend the route, removing references to the Santa Rosa, CA, VOR/DME and referring to the newly established ROZZA intersection utilizing radials from the Point Reyes, CA, VOR/DME and the Scaggs Island, CA, VORTAC. The unaffected portion of the existing airway will remain as charted. T–257: T–257 extends from Ventura, CA to Tatoosh, WA. The FAA will amend the route to reflect the amended location of FREES due to the relocation on GETER. The unaffected portion of the existing airway will remain as charted. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:01 Jun 03, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 amending VOR Federal airways V–25, V–27, V–494, V–108, V– 301, and RNAV route T–257, due to the planned decommissioning of the of the Santa Rosa, CA VOR/DME NAVAID, qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) 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.

AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is correcting certain statements in the preamble of the Revised Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) Update for the 2008 Ozone NAAQS, which was published as a final rule in the Federal Register on April 30, 2021. The preamble describes a provision of the final regulatory text incorrectly by indicating that the provision applies if a satisfactory SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 demonstration is made, when in fact no demonstration is required. This document corrects the preamble to accurately describe the regulatory text provision. DATES: The effective date of this document is June 29, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Lifland, Clean Air Markets Division, Office of Atmospheric Programs, Office of Air and Radiation, at lifland.david@epa.gov or 202–343–9151. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Revised CSAPR Update was signed by EPA Administrator Michael Regan on March 15, 2021, was published in the Federal Register on April 30, 2021 (86 FR 23054), and has an effective date of June 29, 2021. Among other things, the rule includes provisions at new 40 CFR 97.811(d) recalling a certain number of allowances issued under the CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 2 Trading Program (referred to here as ‘‘Group 2 allowances’’) equivalent in quantity and useability to the vintage 2021–2024 Group 2 allowances that EPA had previously recorded in the compliance accounts of sources in states covered by the new CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 3 Trading Program (referred to here as ‘‘Group 3 sources’’). The recall applies to all Group 3 sources in whose accounts vintage 2021–2024 Group 2 allowances were recorded, including sources that may have already sold the Group 2 allowances or retired. See generally 86 FR at 23139–142 and 23201–203. In response to comments received on the proposal, the regulatory text implementing the recall requirements includes a provision intended to address the possible circumstance where the current owners and operators of a Group 3 source may have obtained ownership and control in a transaction that did not also provide rights to direct the use or transfer of Group 2 allowances recorded in the source’s compliance account. In such a circumstance, the regulatory text at new 40 CFR 97.811(d)(2)(ii)(B) provides that responsibility for complying with the Group 2 allowance recall requirements lies with the most recent former owners and operators of the source before the occurrence of any such transactions. See 86 FR at 23201. Need for Corrections As published, the preamble text describing the regulatory text provision at new 40 CFR 97.811(d)(2)(ii)(B) includes an incorrect statement.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending VOR Federal airways 
V-25, V-27, V-494, V-108, V-301, and RNAV route T-257. The planned 
decommissioning of the Santa Rosa, CA, VOR/DME has made this action 
necessary. The VOR Federal airway and United States Area Navigation 
route actions are described below.
    V-25: V-25 extends between Mission Bay, CA and Wenatchee, WA. The 
FAA will amend V-25 to reflect the new description of the GETER 
intersection. The GETER intersection will be redefined amending the 
position on radials from Point Reyes and Mendocino VORs. The unaffected 
portions of the existing airway will remain as charted.
    V-27: V-27 extends between Mission Bay, CA and Seattle, WA. The FAA 
will amend the description of the GETER intersection to reflect new 
position on radials from the Point Reyes, CA, VOR/DME and the 
Mendocino, CA, VOR. The unaffected portions of the existing airway will 
remain as charted.
    V-494: V-494 extends from Crescent City, CA to Hazen, NV. The FAA 
will amend the legal description by removing the reference to the Santa 
Rosa, CA, VOR/DME and establishing an intersection (ROZZA) utilizing 
radials from Point Reyes, CA, VOR/DME and the Scaggs Island, CA, VOR 
Collocated Tactical Air Navigation System (VORTAC). The unaffected 
portion of the existing airway will remain as charted.
    V-108: V-108 extends from Santa Rosa, CA to Hill City, KS. The FAA 
will amend the route removing references to the Santa Rosa, CA, VOR/DME 
and referring to the newly established ROZZA intersection utilizing 
radials from the Point Reyes, CA, VOR/DME and the Scaggs Island, CA, 
VORTAC. The unaffected portion of the existing airway will remain as 
charted.
    V-301: V-301 extends from Panoche, CA to Williams, CA. The FAA will 
amend the route, removing references to the Santa Rosa, CA, VOR/DME and 
referring to the newly established ROZZA intersection utilizing radials 
from the Point Reyes, CA, VOR/DME and the Scaggs Island, CA, VORTAC. 
The unaffected portion of the existing airway will remain as charted.
    T-257: T-257 extends from Ventura, CA to Tatoosh, WA. The FAA will 
amend the route to reflect the amended location of FREES due to the 
relocation on GETER. The unaffected portion of the existing airway will 
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 amending VOR Federal 
airways V-25, V-27, V-494, V-108, V-301, and RNAV route T-257, due to 
the planned decommissioning of the of the Santa Rosa, CA VOR/DME 
NAVAID, qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National 
Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) 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.
