SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by adjusting the airport name and geographic coordinates, 
within Class D and Class E airspace, of Chicago Executive Airport, 
formerly called Palwaukee Municipal Airport, Wheeling, IL, to coincide 
with the FAA's aeronautical database. This is an administrative change 
and does not affect the boundaries, altitudes, or operating 
requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedures 
under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
    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. 
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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, 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 in the Wheeling, IL area.
