On October 4, 2005, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to revise J-158 between the Malad City, ID, VOR/DME and the Muddy Mountain, WY, VORTAC (70 FR 57806). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. With the exception of editorial changes, this amendment is the same as that proposed in the notice.
This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to revise a segment of J-158. This amendment would insert a segment extending from Malad City, ID, VOR/DME to Big Piney, WY, VOR/DME to Muddy Mountain, WY, VORTAC, and restores the use of J-158 between Malad City and Muddy Mountain.
Domestic Jet Routes are published in paragraph 2004 of FAA Order 7400.9N dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 15, 2005, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The domestic Jet Route listed in this document will be published subsequently in the order.
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. Therefore, this regulation: (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 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.Start List of Subjects
