SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On July 31, 2012, the FAA published a final rule, technical amendment, in the Federal Register amending the Class E airspace area for Montgomery, AL, by recognizing the name change to Prattville-Grouby Field Airport (formerly Autauga Airport) (77 FR 45238). After publication, the FAA found that the geographic coordinates of Maxwell AFB and Wetumpka Municipal Airport need to be adjusted to be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database. This action makes the administrative adjustment that does not affect the altitude, boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace. Therefore, notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.

The Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 6005 of FAA order 7400.9V, dated August 9, 2011, and effective September 15, 2011, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Correction to Final Rule

Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the geographic coordinates for Maxwell AFB and Wetumpka Municipal Airport, as listed in the airspace designation of the Class E airspace, Montgomery, AL, as published in the Federal Register of July 31, 2012, (77 FR 45238), FR Doc. 2012-18522, are corrected as follows:
