On July 3, 2000, the FAA published in the Federal Register a direct final rule; request for comments which revises the Class E airspace at Oelwein, IA (FR document 00-16662, 65 FR 40990, Airspace Docket No. 00-ACE-12). An error was subsequently discovered that the Hampton NDB should be the Oelwein NDB. This action corrects that error. After careful review of all available information related to the subject presented above, the FAA has determined that air safety and the public interest require adoption of the rule. The FAA has determined that this correction will not change the meaning of the action nor add any additional burden on the public beyond that already published. This action corrects the error in the airspace designation and confirms the effective date to the direct final rule.

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 November 30, 2000. No adverse comments were received, and thus this notice confirms that this direct final rule will become effective on that date.
