The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than March 2, 2005. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), states that, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time specified, the administering authority may extend the 245–day period to issue its preliminary results by up to 120 days. Completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245–day period is not practicable because the Department needs additional time to analyze a significant amount of information pertaining to each company’s sales practices, factors of production, corporate relationships, and to review responses to supplemental questionnaires. Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the time specified under the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 60 days until May 1, 2005, in accordance PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration [I.D. 020105E] Proposed Information Collection; Comment Request; Alaska Saltwater Sport Fishing Economic Survey National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
