Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 226 / Friday, November 24, 2006 / Notices than 90 days, if it determines that the review is extraordinarily complicated. We determine that this review is extraordinarily complicated, pursuant to sections 751(c)(5)(C) (i) and (ii) of the Act, because there are a large number of issues, some of which are complex. The parties filed comments raising various issues which require additional time for analysis, including the relevance of recent World Trade Organization decisions and the Department’s duty absorption analysis in the concurrent administrative review. The Department’s preliminary results of the sunset review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from the Netherlands are currently scheduled for November 19, 2006 and the final results are currently scheduled for March 29, 2007. However, the Department will extend the deadlines in this proceeding for the above-stated reasons. As a result, the Department intends to issue the preliminary results of the full sunset review by February 12, 2007, and the final results of that review by June 22, 2007. These dates are 85 days from the original scheduled dates of the preliminary and final results of the sunset review. This notice is issued in accordance with sections 751(c)(5)(B) and (C) of the Act. Dated: November 16, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

(‘‘Boyer Towing’’) has filed an administrative appeal with the Department of Commerce asking that the Secretary override the Alaska Department of Natural Resources (ADNR) objection to the construction of two proposed log raft mooring buoys inside of the small VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:24 Nov 22, 2006 Jkt 211001 cover locally referred to as the ‘‘Pothole,’’ on the eastern shore of Woewodski Island in Wrangell Narrows, near Ketchikan, Alaska.

ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Odin Smith, Attorney-Advisor, NOAA Office of the General Counsel, 301–713– 7392. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Notice of Appeal Boyer Towing has filed a notice of appeal with the Secretary of Commerce pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA), 16 U.S.C. 1451 et seq., and implementing regulations found at 15 CFR Part 930, Subpart H. Boyer Towing appealed an objection raised by the ADNR to a consistency certification contained within its application to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for a permit necessary to construct two log raft mooring buoys inside of the small cove locally referred to as the ‘‘Pothole,’’ on the eastern shore of Woewodski Island in Wrangell Narrows, near Ketchikan, Alaska. The Appellant requests that the Secretary override the State’s consistency objections on grounds that the project is consistent with the objectives or purposes of the CZMA. To make the determination that the proposed activity is ‘‘consistent with the objectives or purposes’’ of the CZMA, the Secretary must find that: (1) The proposed activity furthers the national interest as articulated in sections 302 or 303 of the CZMA, in a significant or substantial manner; (2) the adverse effects of the proposed activity do not outweigh its contribution to the national interest, when those effects are considered separately or cumulatively; and (3) no reasonable alternative is available that would permit the activity to be conducted in a manner consistent with enforceable policies of Alaska’s coastal management program. 15 CFR 930.121 (2005), as amended, 71 FR 787831 (Jan. 5, 2006).
