Chapter 35, as amended), the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) invites comments on this information collection for which RUS intends to request approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). DATES: Comments on this notice must be received by May 1, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) regulation (5 CFR 1320) implementing provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–13) requires that interested members of the public and affected agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8(d)). This notice identifies an information collection that RUS is submitting to OMB for extension. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including wwhite on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:06 Feb 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

FAX: (202) 720–8435. Title: RUS Form 675, Certification of Authority. OMB Control Number: 0572–0074. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Abstract: The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) manages loan programs in accordance with the Rural Electrification Act of 1936, as amended (7 U.S.C. 901 et seq.) (RE Act). A major factor in managing loan programs is controlling the advance of funds. One reason to control funds is so that the actual borrowers get their money. The use of RUS Form 675 allows this control to be achieved by providing a list of authorized signatures against which signatures requesting funds are compared. RUS Form 675 provides an effective control against the unauthorized release of funds by providing a list of authorized signatures. OMB Circular A–123, Management Accountability and Control, states that information should be maintained on a current basis and that cash should be protected from unauthorized use. Form 675 allows borrowers to keep RUS upto-date of any changes in signature authority and controls the release funds only to authorized borrower representatives. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting for this collection of information is estimated to average .10 hours per response. Respondents: Business or other for profit; Not-for-profit institutions; and State, Local, or Tribal government. Estimated Number of Respondents: 350. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 35.0 hours. Copies of this information collection can be obtained from Joyce McNeil, Program Development and Regulatory Analysis, at (202) 690–1078. FAX: (202) 720–8435. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Extension of Time Limits

    On November 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty (``AD'') 
orders on certain corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products 
(``CORE'') from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and South 
Korea and the countervailing duty order (``CVD'') on CORE from South 
Korea, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``the Act''). See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 70 FR 
65884 (November 1, 2005). Based on an adequate responses from the 
domestic interested parties and inadequate responses from respondent 
interested parties, the Department is conducting expedited sunset 
reviews to determine whether revocation of the AD orders on CORE from 
Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and South Korea would lead 
to the continuation or recurrence of dumping and whether revocation of 
the CVD order on CORE from South Korea would lead to continuation or 
recurrence of a countervailable subsidy. See section 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C) of the Act.
    In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department 
may extend the period of time for

making its determination in a sunset review by not more than 90 days, 
if it determines that the review is extraordinarily complicated. As set 
forth in section 751(c)(5)(C)(v) of the Act, the Department may treat a 
sunset review as extraordinarily complicated if it is a review of a 
transition order. The sunset reviews subject to this notice are reviews 
of transition orders. Therefore, the Department has determined, 
pursuant to section 751(c)(5)(C)(v) of the Act, that the sunset reviews 
of the AD orders on CORE from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, 
Japan, and South Korea and the sunset review of the CVD order on CORE 
from South Korea are extraordinarily complicated and require additional 
time for the Department to complete its analysis. Accordingly, the 
Department will extend the deadlines in these proceedings, and, as a 
result, intends to issue the final results of the expedited sunset 
reviews on CORE from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and 
South Korea on or about May 30, 2006, 90 days from the original 
scheduled date of the expedited final sunset reviews.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(c)(5)(B) and (C) of the Act.
