Download as PDF 34092 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 112 / Monday, June 13, 2005 / Notices and apparel products. Such treatment is generally limited to products manufactured from yarns and fabrics formed in the United States or a beneficiary country. The CBTPA also provides for quota- and duty-free treatment for apparel articles that are both cut (or knit-to-shape) and sewn or otherwise assembled in one or more beneficiary countries from fabric or yarn that is not formed in the United States, if it has been determined that such fabric or yarn cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. In Executive Order No. 13191, the President delegated to CITA the authority to determine whether yarns or fabrics cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner under the CBTPA and directed CITA to establish procedures to ensure appropriate public participation in any such determination. On March 6, 2001, CITA published procedures that it will follow in considering requests. (66 FR 13502). On June 7, 2005 the Chairman of CITA received a petition from B*W*A alleging that certain 100 percent cotton, yarn dyed in the warp direction, plain weave double warp beam seersucker fabrics, of specifications detailed below, classified in HTSUS subheadings 5208.42.30, 5208.42.40, 5208.42.50, and 5209.41.60, for use in woven shirts, blouses, and sleepwear, cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner and requesting quota- and dutyfree treatment under the CBTPA for such apparel articles that are both cut and sewn in one or more beneficiary countries from such fabrics. Specifications: Petitioner Style Number: Fiber Content: Yarn Number: Thread Count: Weave: Weight: Width: Finish: VerDate jul<14>2003 Various 100% Cotton (1) 33/1 - 119/1 metric warp; (2) 33/1 - 119/1 & 33/2 119/2 metric warp 33/1 - 119/1 metric filling; overall average yarn number: 30 - 115 metric 23 - 48 warp ends per centimeter; 19 - 40 filling picks per centimeter; total: 42 - 88 threads per square centimeter Plain weave double warp beam seersucker 101 - 255 grams per square meter 136 - 152 centimeters Of yarns of different colors in the warp direction 17:39 Jun 10, 2005 Jkt 205001 The petitioner states that one very important feature of the fabrics is that they are genuine seersucker fabrics, woven with two warp beams, one with half the warp yarns subject to normal warp tension, the other with the warp yarns in a relaxed or tensionless state. Thus, the unique ‘‘crinkled’’ appearance and feel of the finished fabric is achieved on the loom and enhanced in the dyeing and finishing process, not merely by dyeing and finishing alone. CITA is soliciting public comments regarding this request, particularly with respect to whether these fabrics can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. Also relevant is whether other fabrics that are supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner are substitutable for these fabrics for purposes of the intended use. Comments must be received no later than June 28, 2005. Interested persons are invited to submit six copies of such comments or information to the Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements, room 3100, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th and Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20230. If a comment alleges that these fabrics can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner, CITA will closely review any supporting documentation, such as a signed statement by a manufacturer of the fabric stating that it produces the fabric that is the subject of the request, including the quantities that can be supplied and the time necessary to fill an order, as well as any relevant information regarding past production. CITA will protect any business confidential information that is marked ‘‘business confidential’’ from disclosure to the full extent permitted by law. CITA generally considers specific details, such as quantities and lead times for providing the subject product as business confidential. However, information such as the names of domestic manufacturers who were contacted, questions concerning the capability to manufacture the subject product, and the responses thereto should be available for public review to ensure proper public participation in the process. If this is not possible, an explanation of the necessity for treating such information as business confidential must be provided. CITA will make available to the public nonconfidential versions of the request and non-confidential versions of any public comments received with respect to a request in room 3100 in the Herbert Hoover Building, 14th and Constitution PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20230. Persons submitting comments on a request are encouraged to include a nonconfidential version and a nonconfidential summary. James C. Leonard III, Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements.

ACTION: Notice; Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission— Cancellation of Open Meeting (Salt Lake City, UT). AGENCY: SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the previously announced open meeting of a delegation of the 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission scheduled for June 6, 2005 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Salt Lake City, Utah, has been cancelled. After extensive coordination with the various Federal, state and local officials concerned, the Commission determined that it was not possible to hold a meaningful public discussion on the date scheduled because Congressional delegations and community representatives had not been afforded adequate opportunity to analyze the data used by the Department of Defense (DoD) to formulate the base closure and realignment recommendations due to delays by DoD in releasing that data in an unclassified form. The Utah and Idaho Congressional delegations have been offered the opportunity to participate in the regional hearing currently scheduled in Portland, Oregon on June 17, 2005. The delay of this notice resulted from unanticipated delays by DoD in the release of the data used by DoD to formulate the base closure and realignment recommendations in an unclassified form and the short timeframe established by statute for the operations of the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission.

Cancellation of an Open Meeting

AGENCY: Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission.

ACTION: Notice; Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission--
Cancellation of Open Meeting (Salt Lake City, UT).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the previously announced open 
meeting of a delegation of the 2005 Defense Base Closure and 
Realignment Commission scheduled for June 6, 2005 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 
p.m. in Salt Lake City, Utah, has been cancelled. After extensive 
coordination with the various Federal, state and local officials 
concerned, the Commission determined that it was not possible to hold a 
meaningful public discussion on the date scheduled because 
Congressional delegations and community representatives had not been 
afforded adequate opportunity to analyze the data used by the 
Department of Defense (DoD) to formulate the base closure and 
realignment recommendations due to delays by DoD in releasing that data 
in an unclassified form. The Utah and Idaho Congressional delegations 
have been offered the opportunity to participate in the regional 
hearing currently scheduled in Portland, Oregon on June 17, 2005.
    The delay of this notice resulted from unanticipated delays by DoD 
in the release of the data used by DoD to formulate the base closure 
and realignment recommendations in an unclassified form and the short 
time-frame established by statute for the operations of the Defense 
Base Closure and Realignment Commission. The Commission requests that 
the public consult the 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment 
Commission Web site, http://www.brac.gov, for updates.
