ACTION: Airworthiness Directives:
DOCUMENT ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).
Amendment of Jet Route J-93; CA
DATES: Comments must be received on or before December 13, 2010.
This action proposes to amend Jet Route J-93 in California between the Julian VHF Omnidirectional Radio Range Tactical Air Navigation Aid (VORTAC), and the ASUTA intersection on the United States/Mexican border. The FAA is proposing to realign the jet route due to the relocation of the Penasco VOR, located in Mexico. This would ensure the efficient use of our National Airspace System.
Amendment of Jet Route J–93; California

In May 2010, the FAA was notified by the Mexican Government that the Penasco VOR in Mexico had been relocated. This proposed action is necessary to realign Jet Route J93 with the revised location of the Penasco VOR.
The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend J93 in California, between the Julian VORTAC and the ASUTA intersection along the United States/ Mexican Border, by realigning the route with the revised locations of the Penasco VOR located in Mexico.
Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004 of FAA Order 7400.9U, dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet routes listed in this document will be published subsequently in the order.
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. Therefore, this proposed 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 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.
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 amend Jet Route J93 in California.
This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71
