Background

    On July 8, 2005, the Committee received a request from the Domestic 
Manufacturers Committee of The Hosiery Association, the American 
Manufacturing Trade Action Coalition, the National Council of Textile 
Organizations, and the National Textile Association requesting that the 
Committee reapply a twelve-month limit that was established on October 
29, 2004, on imports from China of cotton, wool, and man-made socks 
(Category 332/432 and 632 Part).
    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, 70 FR 44565 (August 3, 2005).
    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

consultations with the Government of China on a broader agreement on 
textiles.
