(increased from 1.5 miles) each side of the 314[deg] (previously 
312[deg]) radial from the Scott TACAN extending from the 7.4-mile 
radius of the airport to 10.5 miles (increased from 10 miles) northwest 
of the Scott TACAN; removing the city associated with the airport to 
comply with changes to FAA Order 7400.2N; updating the name of the 
airport (previously Scott AFB/MidAmerica Airport) to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database; and removing the exclusionary language as 
it is not required.
    This action is due to a biennial airspace review.

designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    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, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. 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, when promulgated, would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
