Therefore, in accordance with the statutory and regulatory authority cited above, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this new shipper review to 300 days. As the new deadline falls on February 19, 2007, a federal holiday, the Department will issue the preliminary results on the next business day, February 20, 2007. The final results of this review continue to be due within 90 days after the date the preliminary results are issued.
