On November 21, 2001, a review of Federal airways in the Kearney, NE, area revealed that the current legal description of V-220 contained an inadvertent reference to Grande Island, NE. The description should refer to the “Kearney, NE, 237° radial” rather than the “Grande Island, NE, 241° radial.” This action corrects that error.
This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 corrects the legal description of V-220 between McCook, NE, and Kearney, NE. Specifically, the “Grande Island, NE, 241° radial” is changed to read “Kearney, NE, 237° radial.”
Since this action simply corrects the legal description by removing the reference to Grande Island, NE, I find that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are impracticable and contrary to the public interest.
This regulation is limited to 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 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 it has been determined that this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 7400.9J dated August 31, 2001, and effective September 16, 2001, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Federal airway listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.
The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1D, Policies and Procedures for Considering Environmental Impacts. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.Start List of Subjects
