SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 18, 2001, the FAA published in the 
Federal Register a direct final rule; request for comments, which 
established a Class E enroute domestic airspace area beginning at 1,200 
feet above ground level in the vicinity of Las Vegas, NV (FR Document 
01-4680, 66 FR 32732, Airspace Docket No. 01-AWP-16). 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 
September 6, 2001. No adverse comments were received; therefore this 
document confirms that this direct final rule will become effective 
0901 UTC, on September 6, 2001.

    Issued in Los Angeles, California, on August 8, 2001.

Acting Manager, Air Traffic Division, Western-Pacific Region.
