Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 110 / Thursday, June 8, 2006 / Notices (Fed. Cir. 2005) (‘‘Eurodif II’’), which affirmed Eurodif I. On January 5, 2006, the CIT remanded the case to the Department for action consistent with the decisions of the Federal Circuit in Eurodif I and Eurodif II. See Eurodif S.A., Compagnie Generale Des Matieres Nucleaires, and Cogema Inc. et. al. v. United States, Slip. Op. 06–3 (CIT, January 5, 2006). Specifically, the CIT directed the Department to revise its final determination and order in accordance with the decisions in Eurodif I and Eurodif II. On March 2, 2006, the Department issued its final results of redetermination and recalculated the subsidy rate applicable to Eurodif, to comply with the decisions of Eurodif I and Eurodif II. See LEU Remand Redetermination. On May 18, 2006, the CIT sustained the Department’s redetermination in all respects and, thus, affirmed the Department’s revised analysis and calculations. See Eurodif S.A., Compagnie Generale Des Matieres Nucleaires, and Cogema Inc. et. al. v. United States, Slip. Op. 06–76 (CIT, May 18, 2006). Suspension of Liquidation The Federal Circuit, in Timken, held that the Department must publish notice of a decision of the CIT or the Federal Circuit, which is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with the Department’s final determination or results. Publication of this notice fulfills that obligation. The Federal Circuit also held that the Department must suspend liquidation of the subject merchandise until there is a ‘‘conclusive’’ decision in the case. Therefore, pursuant to Timken, the Department must continue to suspend liquidation pending the expiration of the period to appeal the CIT’s May 18, 2006, decision. In the event that the CIT’s ruling is not appealed, the Department will publish an amended final results and liquidate relevant entries covering the subject merchandise. Dated: May 31, 2006. David M.

AGENCY: SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given of the intent to fully approve the Minnesota Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Program (coastal nonpoint program) and of the availability of the draft Approval Decisions on conditions for the Minnesota coastal nonpoint program. Section 6217 of the Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments (CZARA), 16 U.S.C. 1455b, requires States and Territories with coastal zone management programs that have received approval under section 306 of the Coastal Zone Management Act to develop and implement coastal nonpoint programs. Coastal States and Territories were required to submit their coastal nonpoint programs to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for approval in July 1995. NOAA and EPA conditionally approved the Minnesota coastal nonpoint program on June 23, 2003. NOAA and EPA have drafted approval decisions describing how Minnesota has satisfied the conditions placed on its program and therefore has a fully approved coastal nonpoint program. NOAA and EPA are making the draft decisions for the Minnesota coastal nonpoint program available for a 30-day public comment period. If comments are received, NOAA and EPA will consider whether such comments are significant enough to affect the decision to fully approve the program.
