PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment. SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is making minor technical changes to the requirements for submitting a petition for rulemaking or exemption. In a final rule published in the Federal Register on December 5, 2007, the FAA inadvertently did not make conforming amendments to plain language requirements in the structure and content of the final rule. This technical amendment restructures or reorders the filing of petitions and incorporates a reference for additional filing guidance and instructions using the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS). These changes ensure general rulemaking procedures are clear, written in plain language, and better inform the public of administrative practices. DATES: Effective Dates: This rule is effective January 5, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Katrina Holiday, Office of Rulemaking, ARM–202, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20591; telephone: (202–267–9680); facsimile: (202–267–5075); e-mail: katrina.holiday@faa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA published in the Federal Register on December 5, 2007 (72 FR 68474) a document that amended the regulations for submitting petitions for rulemaking or exemption. This technical amendment— (1) Incorporates a reference to available guidance and instructions that may ease the use of FDMS. This guidance is accessible via the Internet at https://www.regulations.gov, and additional instructions for petitions for rulemaking or exemption are also accessible via the Internet at https:// www.faa.gov/regulations. (2) Amends 14 CFR 11.63(a) and (b) by reordering these paragraphs by order of importance to address in paragraph (a) general submissions of petitions for rulemaking or exemption, and paragraph (b) specific petitions for rulemaking or exemption for relief from part 139 of this chapter. Because these actions are merely administrative in nature, the FAA finds that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary. For the same reason, the FAA finds that good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d) for E:\FR\FM\05JAR1.SGM 05JAR1

possession, territory, or Commonwealth of the United States, or the

investigation is pending. The paragraph is further revised to 
incorporate the technical correction in terminology from ``the Office 
of the General Counsel of the Service'' to ``DHS.''
