Amendment: The Commentary to §2K1.5 captioned "Background" is amended by deleting:

"Except under the circumstances specified in 49 U.S.C. § 46505(c), the offense covered by this section is a misdemeanor for which the maximum term of imprisonment authorized by statute is one year.";

by deleting "An" and inserting in lieu thereof "This guideline provides an"; and by deleting "is provided" immediately after "enhancement".

Reason for Amendment: This amendment strikes background commentary in guideline §2K1.5 that is no longer correct because of a recent change in statutory penalties. Specifically, the Antiterrorism Act of 1996 increased the statutory maximum penalty for violations of 49 U.S.C. § 46505(b) from not more than one year to not more than 10 years. This increase changes the classification of an offense under subsection (b) from a class A misdemeanor to a class D felony.

Effective Date: The effective date of this amendment is November 1, 1997.
