In 46 FR 61528, December 17, 1981, the Federal Aviation Administration published its legal opinion on the recordability of artisan liens, with the identification of those states from which artisan liens would be accepted. Subsequently, we advised that Florida, Nevada, and New Jersey had passed legislation that, in our opinion, allows the FAA Aircraft Registry to accept artisan liens from those states (49 FR 17112, April 23, 1984).

The Agency continued this practice when we adivsed that the following states had passed legislation that either required or allowed recording of notice of lien thereby allowing the FAA Aircraft Registry to accept and record artisan liens claimed under those states' law:

Minnesota and New Mexico (51 FR 21046, June 10, 2986)

Missouri (53 FR 23716, June 23, 1988)

Texas, (54 FR 38584, September 19, 1989)

North Dakota, (54 FR 51965, October 17, 1989)

Michigan and Tennessee, (55 FR 31938, August 6, 1990)

Arizona, (56 FR 27989, June 18, 1991)

Iowa, (56 FR 36189-36190, July 31, 1991)

Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island (67 FR 68902, November 13, 2002)

This notice is to advise interested parties that the states of Idaho and Utah are now identified as additional states from which artisan liens will be accepted.
