SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The final rule that is the subject of these amendments integrated environmental analysis and aligned environmental document approval levels with the Air Force decision-making process. It also expanded Air Force environmental participants and responsibilities of the Environmental Planning Function (EPF) and the proponent of an action.

Administrative Procedure Act: The Air Force has determined that the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553, does not require notice of proposed rulemaking or an opportunity for public participation in connection with these corrections. In this regard, the Air Force notes that such notice and opportunity for comment is unnecessary because these amendments are related solely to agency organization, procedure and practice, and make technical corrections. Accordingly, the Air Force finds good cause to make these amendments effective immediately upon publication in the Federal Register. 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), 553(d)(3).

Need for Amendments

Amendments were needed to clarify the requirements of 32 CFR 989.
