The FAA published this direct final rule with a request for comments in the Federal Register on December 6, 1999 (64 FR 68008). The FAA uses the direct final rulemaking procedure for a non-controversial rule where the FAA believes that there will be no adverse public comment. This direct final rule advised the public that no adverse comments were anticipated, and that unless a written adverse comment, or a written notice of intent to submit such an adverse comment, were received within the comment period, the regulation would become effective on February 24, 2000. No adverse comments were received, and thus this notice confirms that this direct final rule will become effective on that date.
This direct final rule also corrects the docket number for this action to 99-ANE-92. The docket number used for the publication of the direct final rule was previously used for another airspace action. That other action, however, was issued from FAA Headquarters, while this action was issued from the New England Region. Therefore, the FAA has determined that the error in the docket number caused no confusion to interested persons wishing to comment on this proposal and corrects the docket number in this action.
Lastly, the longitude and latitude coordinates published in the direct final rule must be updated to reflect North American Datum (NAD) 1983. The FAA has determined that neither of these corrections expands the scope of the direct final rule.
