Change of Using Agency for Restricted Areas R-3008A, B, C, and D; 
Grand Bay Weapons Range, GA

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action changes the name of the using agency for 
Restricted Areas R-3008A, B, C, and D, Grand Bay Weapons Range, GA, 
from ``U.S. Air Force, 347th Rescue Wing, Moody AFB, GA'' to ``U.S. Air 
Force, 23rd Wing, Moody AFB, GA.'' As a result of the Base Realignment 
and Closure process, the 347th Rescue Wing was officially redesignated 
the 23rd Wing effective October 1, 2006. This is an administrative 
change that does not alter the boundaries, designated altitudes, time 
of designation, or activities conducted within the affected restricted 
areas.

DATES: Effective Dates: 0901 UTC, January 18, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul Gallant, Airspace and Rules, 
Office of System Operations Airspace and AIM, Federal Aviation 
Administration, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20591; 
telephone: (202) 267-8783.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Aviation Regulations 
(14 CFR) part 73 by changing the name of the using agency for 
Restricted Areas R-3008A, B, C, and D, Grand Bay Weapons Range, GA, 
from ``U.S. Air Force, 347th Rescue Wing, Moody AFB, GA,'' to ``U.S. 
Air Force, 23rd Wing, Moody AFB, GA.'' This change is necessary due to 
the official redesignation of the Wing's title by the Base Closure and 
Realignment process. This is an administrative change only and does not 
affect the boundaries, designated altitudes, or activities conducted 
within the restricted areas. Therefore, notice and public procedures 
under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary.
    Section 73.30 of 14 CFR part 73 of the Federal Aviation Regulations 
was republished in FAA Order 7400.8M, dated January 6, 2006.
    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 Department of Transportation 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.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with 311d., FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures.'' This airspace action is not expected to cause any 
potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary 
circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental 
assessment.
