SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On December 29, 2009, the U.S. Army requested that the FAA change the name of the using agency for restricted areas R-3005A, R-3005B, R-3005C, R-3005D and R-3005E at Fort Stewart, GA, to “Commander, U.S. Army Garrison, Fort Stewart, GA.” This change is required due to the reorganization of the Fort Stewart Installation command structure.

The Rule

This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 by amending the using agency for restricted areas R-3005A, R-3005B, R-3005C, R-3005D and R-3005E at Fort Stewart, GA to reflect current organizational management responsibilities. This is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, designated altitudes, or activities conducted within the restricted area; therefore, notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.

The FAA has determined that this action 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 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.

Environmental Review

The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with 311d., FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. This airspace action is an administrative change to the descriptions of the affected restricted areas to update the using agency name. It does not alter the dimensions, altitudes, or times of designation of the airspace; therefore, it is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.
