SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 changes the name of the airport associated with the Class D 
airspace and Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D 
airspace, at Lakehurst, NJ. The airport name is changed from Lakehurst 
Naval Air Experimental Center Airport/Maxfield Field to Lakehurst Naval 
Support Activity/Maxfield Field (Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst) to 
be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database. Accordingly, since 
this is an administrative change, and does not affect the boundaries, 
altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace, notice and public 
procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
    The Class D airspace, and Class E airspace designations are 
published in Paragraph 5000 and 6004, respectively, 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 D and Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.
    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them, operationally current, 
is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore, (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.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority.
    This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A. Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the 
FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it amends controlled airspace for the Lakehurst, NJ, Class D and E 
airspace area.
