SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 10, 2017, the FAA published a final rule entitled, ``2017 
Revisions to the Civil Penalty Inflation Adjustment Tables'' (82 FR 
17097). In that final rule the FAA amended its regulations to provide 
the 2017 inflation adjustment to civil penalty maximums and minimums 
provided in title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 13.301 and 
406.9, as required by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment 
Act Improvements Act of 2015.
    In the regulatory text, the FAA inadvertently stated the effective 
date for the new maximums/minimums was January 15, 2017. However, the 
FAA intended only to apply the newly inflated maximums/minimums for 
violations occurring on or after April 10, 2017. Therefore, the FAA 
amends Sec.  13.301(c) to reflect the intended date of April 10, 2017.
