Abstract: The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) makes mortgage loans and loan guarantees to electric and telecommunications systems to provide and improve electric and telecommunications service in rural areas pursuant to the Rural Electrification Act of 1936, as amended (7 U.S.C. 901 et seq.,) (RE Act). All current and future capital assets of RUS borrowers are ordinarily mortgaged or pledged to the Federal Government as security for RUS loans. Assets include tangible and intangible utility plant, non-utility property, construction in progress, and materials, supplies, and equipment normally used in a telecommunications system. The RE Act and the various security instruments, e.g., the RUS mortgage, limit the rights of a RUS borrower to dispose of its capital assets. The RUS Form 793, Request for Release of Lien and/or Approval of Sale, allows the telecommunications program borrower to seek agency permission to sell some of its assets. The form collects detailed information regarding the proposed sale of a portion of the borrower’s system. RUS telecommunications borrowers fill out the form to request RUS approval in order to sell capital assets. Estimate of Burden: public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 2.75 hours per response. Respondents: Business or other forprofit; not-for-profit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 60. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 165.

Rally, Shanghai New Ai Lian, and Sea Lake/ Glopack all withdrew their requests within the 90-day limit. Therefore, the Department will rescind the review as to these companies. Ampac withdrew its request after the 90-day deadline. However, consistent with the Department’s practice, the Department finds it reasonable to extend the withdrawal deadline because the Department has not yet devoted considerable time and resources to this review.

review for Ampac. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 70 FR 61601 (October 25, 2005), as corrected by

Rescission of Review

    The Department's regulations, at 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), provide that 
the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that 
requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of 
the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested 
review, or withdraws its request at a later date if the Department 
determines that it is reasonable to extend the time limit for 
withdrawing the request. Rally, Shanghai New Ai Lian, and Sea Lake/
Glopack all withdrew their requests within the 90-day limit. Therefore, 
the Department will rescind the review as to these companies. Ampac 
withdrew its request after the 90-day deadline. However, consistent 
with the Department's practice, the Department finds it reasonable to 
extend the withdrawal deadline because the Department has not yet 
devoted considerable time and resources to this review. See Honey from

Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 42032 (July 21, 2005);

Candles from the People's Republic of China, 70 FR 33733 (June 9,

abuse of our procedures. Therefore, we are partially rescinding this 
review of the antidumping duty order on polyethylene retail carrier 
bags from the PRC covering the period January 26, 2004, through July 
31, 2005. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions 
for Sea Lake/Glopack, Shanghai New Ai Lian, Rally and Ampac directly to
