FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. Background In 2003, Congress enacted the Vision 100—Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act (Pub. L. 108–176), which established a joint planning and development office in the FAA to manage the work related to the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). Today, NextGen is an ongoing FAA-led modernization of the nation’s air transportation system to make flying safer, more efficient, and more predictable. In support of NextGen, this proposal is part of a larger and comprehensive Troute modernization project in the state of Alaska. The project mission statement states: ‘‘To modernize Alaska’s Air Traffic Service route structure using satellite based navigation Development of new T-routes and optimization of existing T-routes will enhance safety, increase efficiency and access, and will provide enroute continuity that is not subject to the restrictions associated with ground based airway navigation.’’ As part of this project, the FAA evaluated the existing Colored airway structure for: (a) Direct replacement (i.e., overlay) with a T-route that offers a similar or lower Minimum Enroute Altitude (MEA) or Global Navigation Satellite System Minimum Enroute Altitude (GNSS MEA); (b) the replacement of the Colored airway with a T-route in an optimized but similar geographic area, while retaining similar or lower MEA; or (c) removal with no route structure (T-route) restored in that area because the value was determined to be insignificant. The aviation industry/users have indicated a desire for the FAA to transition the Alaskan en route navigation structure away from dependency on Non-Directional Beacons (NDB), and move to develop and improve the RNAV route structure. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS T–282 During an evaluation of RNAV route T– 282, the FAA determined that a slight deviation north would allow for a lower GNSS MEA between the Fix AKTIE and waypoint (WP) ROSII. This proposal would include two newly established WPs the FUZES, AK, WP and the ENVOI, AK, WP to the legal description. Additionally, the proposal would remove the HORSI, AK, Fix from the legal description, since it would no longer be a point along the route. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend RNAV route T–282 in the vicinity of Ruby, AK in support of a large and comprehensive Troute modernization project in the state of Alaska. The proposed amendment is described below. T–282: T–282 currently navigates between the VENCE, AK, Fix south of the Nulato Airport, Alaska, to the Fairbanks, AK, (FAI) VHF Omnidirectional Radar and Tactical Air Navigational System (VORTAC). The FAA proposes to amend the segment of the route between the AKTIE, AK, Fix and the ROSII, AK, WP by adding two newly established WPs the FUZES, AK, WP and the ENVOI, AK, WP and removing the HORSI, AK, Fix. These amendments would allow for a lower GNSS MEA on this segment of the route. The rest of the route would remain unchanged. United States Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA Order JO 7400.11F dated August 10, 2021 and effective September 15, 2021, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV route listed in this document would be published subsequently in FAA Order JO 7400.11. FAA Order JO 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 proposed 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 16:36 Mar 23, 2022 Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

Furthermore, this action would add provisions to the forfeiture section to authorize the posting of notices online, and would correct erroneous cross-references, grammatical issues, internal inconsistencies, typos, and other clerical errors that have resulted from the passage of time or were inadvertently left unaddressed in the last major revision to the regulations and have since been identified. II. Proposed Revisions Subpart A—General Purpose and Scope Section 904.1: Paragraph (c) would be amended to update the list of statutes enforced by NOAA pursuant to the procedures set forth in 15 CFR part 904. Specifically, the proposed amendments would remove references to statutes that have been repealed and statutes that are not enforced by NOAA. References to statutes enacted, or amended to include civil administrative enforcement provisions, since 15 CFR part 904 was last amended, would be added. Definitions and Acronyms Section 904.2: This section would be amended to reflect that the Administrative Law Judges currently hearing NOAA enforcement cases do not have a docketing center; to clarify that when U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) personnel are accompanying or acting under the direction of any authorized officer, those USCG personnel are authorized officers; to clarify that it is the Secretary of Commerce that may enter into agreements with Federal and state agencies to enforce statutes administered by NOAA; to clarify that a written warning may be a final administrative decision; and to rename initial discovery filings. Filing and Service Section 904.3: The heading of this section would be simplified to reflect that its provisions pertain to the service of any documents rather than specific filings, such as filings with the Office of Administrative Law Judges.

Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021, and effective 
September 15, 2021. FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly available as 
listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F 
lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service 
routes, and reporting points.

Background

    In 2003, Congress enacted the Vision 100--Century of Aviation 
Reauthorization Act (Pub. L. 108-176), which established a joint 
planning and development office in the FAA to manage the work related 
to the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). Today, 
NextGen is an ongoing FAA-led modernization of the nation's air 
transportation system to make flying safer, more efficient, and more 
predictable.
    In support of NextGen, this proposal is part of a larger and 
comprehensive T-route modernization project in the state of Alaska. The 
project mission statement states: ``To modernize Alaska's Air Traffic 
Service route structure using satellite based navigation Development of 
new T-routes and optimization of existing T-routes will enhance safety, 
increase efficiency and access, and will provide enroute continuity 
that is not subject to the restrictions associated with ground based 
airway navigation.'' As part of this project, the FAA evaluated the 
existing Colored airway structure for: (a) Direct replacement (i.e., 
overlay) with a T-route that offers a similar or lower Minimum Enroute 
Altitude (MEA) or Global Navigation Satellite System Minimum Enroute 
Altitude (GNSS MEA); (b) the replacement of the Colored airway with a 
T-route in an optimized but similar geographic area, while retaining 
similar or lower MEA; or (c) removal with no route structure (T-route) 
restored in that area because the value was determined to be 
insignificant.
    The aviation industry/users have indicated a desire for the FAA to 
transition the Alaskan en route navigation structure away from 
dependency on Non-Directional Beacons (NDB), and move to develop and 
improve the RNAV route structure. During an evaluation of RNAV route T-
282, the FAA determined that a slight deviation north would allow for a 
lower GNSS MEA between the Fix AKTIE and waypoint (WP) ROSII. This 
proposal would include two newly established WPs the FUZES, AK, WP and 
the ENVOI, AK, WP to the legal description. Additionally, the proposal 
would remove the HORSI, AK, Fix from the legal description, since it 
would no longer be a point along the route.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend RNAV 
route T-282 in the vicinity of Ruby, AK in support of a large and 
comprehensive T-route modernization project in the state of Alaska. The 
proposed amendment is described below.
    T-282: T-282 currently navigates between the VENCE, AK, Fix south 
of the Nulato Airport, Alaska, to the Fairbanks, AK, (FAI) VHF 
Omnidirectional Radar and Tactical Air Navigational System (VORTAC). 
The FAA proposes to amend the segment of the route between the AKTIE, 
AK, Fix and the ROSII, AK, WP by adding two newly established WPs the 
FUZES, AK, WP and the ENVOI, AK, WP and removing the HORSI, AK, Fix. 
These amendments would allow for a lower GNSS MEA on this segment of 
the route. The rest of the route would remain unchanged.
    United States Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 
6011 of FAA Order JO 7400.11F dated August 10, 2021 and effective 
September 15, 2021, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. 
The RNAV route listed in this document would be published subsequently 
in FAA Order JO 7400.11.
    FAA Order JO 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 proposed 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 proposed 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

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
