Download as PDF 4348 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 17 / Thursday, January 26, 2006 / Notices comment. The final EIS and decision is expected in December 2006. Public questions and comments regarding this proposal are an integral part of the environmental analysis process. Comments will be used to identify issues and develop alternatives to this proposal. To assist the Forest Service in identifying and considering issues and concerns on the proposed action, comments should be as specific as possible. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Preliminary Issues A. Long standing outfitter guide operators have not received 5-year term or priority use permits. B. Levels of authorized outfitter-guide use (too much commercial use for some and not enough opportunities for others) and limits on the number of permits in the popular and highly marketable tourist locations: such as, Broken Arrow, Soldier Pass, Greasy Spoon, Honanki, etc. C. The Forest Service has not authorized increased opportunities for existing outfitter-guides with temporary permits. D. Sustaining of historic permits, versus adjusting/limiting authorizations and opening up new competitive opportunities. E. The Forest Service has not issued new outfitter-guide authorizations in the greater Sedona area. F. Inconsistencies and deficiencies in outfitter-guide quality of service and performance. G. Demand for group and large community events on the National Forest is inconsistent with current emphasis in the Forest Plan. H. Lack of permit system for commercial wedding planning and operations on the National Forest. I. Authorization and management of recreation events, such as size, location, type of event, limitations. J. Authorization and management of institutional outfitter-guide activities. K. Inconsistencies between desire of permit holders for unlimited business growth and current Forest Plan direction for encounter frequencies and limited commercial activities. L. Perceived monopoly of business income related to certain locations. M. Concern related to resource and infrastructure impacts and damage from outfitter-guide activities and general recreation use. N. Implementation of new regulations. O. Some existing outfitter guides allocations are not used and that nonuse has not been available for others or administered under current policy. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:10 Jan 25, 2006 Jkt 205001 P. Concerns about delay in completing reallocation of existing permitted guides. Q. Displacement of general public use of area as a result of outfitter guide use, (common wedding or large group use locations.) Comment Requested This notice of intent initiates the scoping process which guides the development of the environmental impact statement. Comments should be as specific as possible including location of concern area, why the concern is important, and data supporting any information considered not accurate. Comments should also indicate interest in being included on a mailing list for the project with accurate mailing address and contact information. Early Notice of Importance of Public Participation in Subsequent Environmental Review: A draft environmental impact statement will be prepared for comment. The comment period on the draft environmental impact statement will be 45 days from the date the Environmental Protection Agency publishes the notice of availability in the Federal Register. The Forest Service believes, at this early stage, it is important to give reviewers notice of several court rulings related to public participation in the environmental review process. First, reviewers of draft environmental impact statements must structure their participation in the environmental review of the proposal so that it is meaningful and alerts an agency to the reviewer’s position and contentions. Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Corp. v. NRDC, 435 U.S. 519, 553 (1978). Also, environmental objections that could be raised at the draft environmental impact statement stage but that are not raised until after completion of the final environmental impact statement may be waived or dismissed by the courts. City of Angoon v. Hodel, 803 F.2d 1016, 1022 (9th Cir. 1986) and Wisconsin Heritages, Inc. v. Harris, 490 F. Supp. 1334, 1338 (E.D. Wis. 1980). Because of these court rulings, it is very important that those interested in this proposed action participate by the close of the 45day comment period so that substantive comments and objections are made available to the Forest Service at a time when it can meaningfully consider them and respond to them in the final environmental impact statement. To assist the Forest Service in identifying and considering issues and concerns on the proposed action, comments on the draft environmental impact statement should be as specific PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 as possible. It is also helpful if comments refer to specific pages or chapters of the draft statement. Comments may also address the adequacy of the draft environmental impact statement or the merits of the alternatives formulated and discussed in the statement. Reviewers may wish to refer to the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act at 40 CFR 1503.3 in addressing these points. Comments received, including the names and addresses of those who comment, will be considered part of the public record on this proposal and will be available for public inspection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 28, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the 
``Department'') published in the Federal Register a notice of 
preliminary results of the full sunset review of the antidumping duty 
order on BSS from Germany, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See 
Brass Sheet and Strip from Germany: Preliminary Results of the Sunset 
Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 70 FR 62093 (October 28, 2005) 
(``Preliminary Results''). In our Preliminary Results, we determined 
that revocation of the order would likely result in continuation or 
recurrence of dumping with a margin of 3.81 percent for Wieland-Werke 
AG and an ``all others'' rate of 7.30 percent. We did not receive a 
case brief on behalf of either domestic or respondent interested 
parties within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(i).

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by this order is brass sheet and strip, other 
than leaded and tinned. The chemical composition of the covered product 
is currently defined in the Copper Development Association (``C.D.A.'') 
200 Series or the Unified Numbering System (``U.N.S.'') C2000. This 
order does not cover products with chemical compositions that are 
defined by anything other than either the C.D.A. or U.N.S. series. In 
physical dimensions, the product covered by this order has a solid 
rectangular cross section over 0.0006 inches (0.15 millimeters) through 
0.1888 inches (4.8 millimeters) in finished thickness or gauge, 
regardless of width. Coiled, wound-on-reels (traverse wound), and cut-
to-length products are included. The merchandise is currently 
classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(``HTSUS'') item numbers 7409.21.00 and 7409.29.00. The HTSUS numbers 
are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written 
description of the scope of this order remains dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

    The Department did not receive case briefs from either domestic or 
respondent interested parties. Therefore, we have not made any changes 
to our Preliminary Results.

Final Results of Review

    We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on BSS 
from Germany would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping at the following weighted-average margins:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 Manufacturer/Exporter                  Margin (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wieland-Werke AG......................................              3.81
All Others............................................              7.30
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely notification of return/
destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order 
is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the 
terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(c), 752, and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
