SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 73 by updating the using agency name for Restricted Areas R-5303A, 
B and C, Camp Lejeune, NC; R-5304 A, B and C, Camp Lejeune, NC; and R-
5306D and E, Cherry Point, NC. Organizational restructuring within the 
U.S. Marine Corps has made this action necessary. 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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 the 
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 makes an administrative change to the descriptions of Restricted 
Areas R-5303A, B and C; and R-5304A, B and C, Camp Lejeune, NC; and R-
5306D and E, Cherry Point, NC to reflect organizational realignments 
within the U.S. Marine Corps.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, 
paragraph 311d. This airspace action is an administrative change to the 
descriptions of the affected restricted area 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.
