SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Rule

    This amendment to part 73 of the Federal Aviation Regulations 
changes the using agency for R-2513 from ``Commander, Fort Ord, CA'' to 
``Commander, Fort Hunter-Liggett, CA.'' This is an administrative 
change requested by the Department of the Army. There are no changes to 
the boundaries, designated altitudes, times of designation, or 
activities conducted within the restricted area. Because this action is 
a minor technical amendment in which the public is not particularly 
interested, I find that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b) are unnecessary. Section 73.25 of part 73 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations was republished in FAA Order 7400.8D dated July 
11, 1996.
    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. 
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 will not have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This action changes the using agency of the restricted area. There 
are no changes to the boundaries, designated altitudes, times of 
designation, or activities conducted within the affected restricted 
area. Accordingly, this action is not subject to environmental 
assessments and procedures as set forth in FAA Order 1050.1D, 
``Policies and Procedures for Considering Environmental Impacts'' and 
the National Environmental Policy Act.
