If the Committee is unable to make a determination within 60 calendar days, it will cause to be published a notice in the Federal Register, including the date by which it will make a determination. The 60 day determination period for the market disruption case expired on August 2, 2005 and the determination period for the threat case expired on August 5, 2005. However, the Committee decided to extend until August 31, 2005, the period for making determinations on these cases in order to consult with the domestic textile and apparel industry and members of Congress about whether to pursue a broader agreement with China on imports of Chinese textile and apparel products to the United States. Because of these consultations, the Committee was unable to make a determination within 60 days of the close of the public comment period. See Extension of Period of Determination on Request for Textile and Apparel Safeguard Action on Imports from China, 70 FR 45702 (August 8, 2005). The Committee is unable to make a determination within the extended period because it is continuing to evaluate conditions in the market for cotton and man-made fiber dressing gowns and robes. Therefore, the Committee is further extending the determination period to October 1, 2005. James C. Leonard III, Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements. [FR Doc.

The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (the Committee). ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Committee is extending through October 1, 2005, the period for making a determination on whether to request consultations with China VerDate Aug<18>2005 15:19 Sep 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 regarding imports of men’s and boys’ wool trousers (Category 447). Jay Dowling, Office of Textiles and Apparel, U.S. Department of Commerce, (202) 482-4058. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority: Section 204 of the Agriculture Act of 1956, as amended; Executive Order 11651, as amended. Background On November 12, 2004, the Committee received a request from the American Manufacturing Trade Action Coalition, the National Council of Textile Organizations, the National Textile Association, SEAMS, and UNITE HERE requesting that the Committee limit imports from China of men’s and boys’ wool trousers (Category 447) due to the threat of market disruption. The Committee determined that this request provided the information necessary for the Committee to consider the request and solicited public comments for a period of 30 days. See Solicitation of Public Comments on Request for Textile and Apparel Safeguard Action on Imports from China, 69 FR 71781 (Dec. 10, 2004). On December 30, 2004, the Court of International Trade preliminarily enjoined the Committee from considering or taking any further action on this request and any other requests ‘‘that are based on the threat of market disruption’’. U.S. Association of Importers of Textiles and Apparel v. United States, 350 F. Supp. 2d 1342 (CIT 2004). On April 27, 2005 the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit granted the U.S. government’s motion for a stay and reversed the lower court on June 28, 2005. U.S. Association of Importers of Textiles and Apparel v. United States, 413 F. 3d 1344 (Fed. Cir. 2005). Thus, CITA resumed consideration of this case. The public comment period for this request had not yet closed when the injunction took effect on December 30, 2004. The number of calendar days remaining in the public comment period beginning with and including December 30, 2004 was 12 days. On May 9, 2005, therefore, the Committee published a notice in the Federal Register reopening the comment period and inviting public comments to be received not later than May 23, 2005. See Rescheduling of Consideration of Request for Textile and Apparel Safeguard Action on Imports from China and Solicitations of Public Comments, 70 FR 24397 (May 9, 2005). PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Committee’s Procedures, 68 FR 27787 (May 21, 2003) state that the Committee will make a determination within 60 calendar days of the close of the public comment period as to whether the United States will request consultations with China. If the Committee is unable to make a determination within 60 calendar days, it will cause to be published a notice in the Federal Register, including the date by which it will make a determination. The 60 day determination period for this case expired on July 22, 2005. However, the Committee was unable to make a determination at that time and extended the determination period to July 31, 2005. See Extension of Period of Determination on Request for Textile and Apparel Safeguard Action on Imports from China, 70 FR 43397 (July 27, 2005). The Committee decided to further extend until August 31, 2005, the period for making a determination on this case in order to consult with the domestic textile and apparel industry and members of Congress about whether to pursue a broader agreement with China on imports of Chinese textile and apparel products to the United States. Because of these consultations, the Committee was unable to make a determination within 60 days of the close of the public comment period. See Extension of Period of Determination on Request for Textile and Apparel Safeguard Action on Imports from China, 70 FR 45703 (August 8, 2005). The Committee is unable to make a determination within the extended period because it is continuing to evaluate conditions in the market for men’s and boys’ wool trousers. Therefore, the Committee is further extending the determination period to October 1, 2005. James C. Leonard III, Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements. [FR Doc.
