The hydropower project planned to use existing facilities of the Uncompahgre Valley Reclamation Project and would have been located in Montrose County, Colorado. The reason for canceling is that the project proponents, including the Uncompahgre Valley Water User’s Association, have elected not to pursue approval of the project at this time.

The primary federal actions on this project would have been execution of a lease of power privilege (a type of contract) with Reclamation and the granting of a Section 404 permit under the Clean Water Act from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August, 2, 2004, the complainant, CNH America LLC, filed a complaint seeking enforcement proceedings of the limited exclusion order issued in Certain Agricultural Tractors, Inv. No. 337–TA– 486. The complainant asserted that the recipient of the limited order, now known as Beiqi Foton Motor Co., Ltd., continues to export infringing tractors to the United States. Complainant also requested that the Commission modify the limited exclusion order by replacing it with a general exclusion order and various cease and desist orders in order to prevent alleged circumvention of the limited exclusion order. On November 19, 2004, the Commission instituted formal enforcement proceedings to determine whether Beiqi Foton Motor Co. Ltd. and Shandong Worldbest Shantou Co., Ltd., an allegedly related company, are in violation of the Commission’s limited exclusion order issued in the investigation, and what if any enforcement measures are appropriate. The Commission set a seven-month deadline for issuance of the enforcement initial determination by the ALJ and named the following entities as parties to the enforcement proceeding: (1) Complainant CNH America LLC; (2) respondent Beiqi Foton Motor Co., Ltd.; (3) respondent Shandong Worldbest Shantou Co., Ltd.; and (4) a Commission investigative attorney (IA) to be designated by OUII. 69 FR 67757 (Nov. 19, 2004). The Commission subsequently set a target date of November 21, 2005 for completion of the investigation. The complaint was mailed to the two respondents on November 17, 2004, and they were notified in the letter accompanying the complaint that they could be found in default if they failed to respond. When they did not respond, the ALJ issued a show cause order (Order 1E) on December 29, 2004, which required the two respondents to show cause why they should not be found in default. A deadline of January 18, 2005, was set for the respondents to respond to that order. While respondents did not respond to the show cause order, complainant and the IA responded on January 18, 2005, and urged the ALJ to find the two respondents in default. The ALJ issued the subject ID (Order 2E) on February 4, 2005. The ALJ found in the ID that the two respondents did E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1
