FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, CONTACT: Donald W. Gohmert, State Conservationist, Natural Resources Conservation Service, 3737 Government Street, Alexandria, Louisiana 71302; telephone (318) 473–7751. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The environmental assessment of the federally assisted action indicates that the demonstration project will not cause significant local, regional, or national impacts on the environment. As a result of these findings, Donald W. Gohmert, State Conservationist, has determined that preparation and review of an environmental impact statement is not needed for this project. The demonstration project will develop and test unique, previously untested technologies for creating floating marsh in order to restore significantly deteriorated wetland areas that historically supported thick-mat maidencane (Panicum hemitomon) floating marsh, and other open freshwater areas. The development of appropriate technology through this plan has potential use throughout fresh and intermediate zones of coastal Louisiana, particularly in Terrebonne Basin where traditional techniques for re-establishing attached marshes are not applicable or feasible. The recommended project plan consists of two phases: The first phase E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 249 / Thursday, December 29, 2005 / Notices is the development and testing, in controlled settings, of a variety of artificial floating marsh system designs along with testing and optimization of plant growth and establishment. The second phase consists of field testing advanced designs of artificial floating marsh systems in selected marsh settings. The Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency and to various federal, state, and local agencies and interested parties. A limited number of copies of the FONSI are available to fill single copy requests at the above address. Basic data collected during the environmental assessment are on file and may be reviewed by contacting Donald W. Gohmert. No administrative action on implementation of the proposal will be taken until 30 days after the date of this publication in the Federal Register. and the prepared statements of the witnesses, will be made available on the Commission’s Web site (www.amc.gov) in advance of the hearings.

EFFECTIVE DATE: December 29, 2005. SUMMARY: We preliminarily determine that diamond sawblades and parts thereof (‘‘diamond sawblades’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value (‘‘LTFV’’), as provided in section 733 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). The estimated margins of sales at LTFV are shown in the ‘‘Preliminary Determination’’ section of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 77121 Case History On May 3, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) received a petition on imports of diamond sawblades from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) and the Republic of Korea (‘‘Korea’’) from the Diamond Sawblade Manufacturers’ Coalition (‘‘Petitioner’’) on behalf of the domestic industry and workers producing diamond sawblades. This investigation was initiated on June 21, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations: Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Korea, 70 FR 35625 (June 21, 2005) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). Additionally, in the Initiation Notice, the Department notified parties that it would apply a new process by which exporters and producers may obtain separate–rate status in non–market economy (‘‘NME’’) investigations. The new process requires exporters and producers to submit a separate–rate status application. See Policy Bulletin 05.1: Separate–Rates Practice and Application of Combination Rates in Antidumping Investigations involving Non–Market Economy Countries, (April 5, 2005), (‘‘Policy Bulletin 05.1’’) available at http://ia.ita.doc.gov. However, the standard for eligibility for a separate rate (which is whether a firm can demonstrate an absence of both de jure and de facto governmental control over its export activities) has not changed. Since the initiation of this investigation the following events have occurred. The Department set aside a period for all interested parties to raise issues regarding product coverage. Between September 16, 2005, and November 23, 2005, Petitioner, Ehwa Diamond Industrial Co., Ltd. (‘‘Ehwa’’), and Diamax Industries, Inc., filed comments and rebuttal comments proposing clarifications to the scope of this investigation. On June 21, 2005, the Department requested quantity and value (‘‘Q&V’’) information from a total of twenty–three companies that Petitioner identified as potential producers and/or exporters of diamond sawblades from the PRC. Also on June 21, 2005, the Department sent a letter requesting Q&V information to the China Bureau of Fair Trade for Imports & Exports (‘‘BOFT’’) of the Ministry of Commerce (‘‘MOFCOM’’) requesting that BOFT transmit the letter to all companies who manufacture and export subject merchandise to the United States, or produce the subject merchandise for the companies who were engaged in exporting the subject merchandise to the United States during E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1
