Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 13 / Monday, January 22, 2007 / Notices and do not necessarily reflect the views of NMFS. Species Covered in This Notice This notice is relevant to Federally endangered Sacramento River winterrun Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), threatened Central Valley spring-run Chinook salmon (O. tshawytscha), threatened Central Valley steelhead (O. mykiss), and threatened Southern Distinct Population Segment of North American green sturgeon (Acipenser medirostris). Applications Received rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES Mr. David A. Vogel requests a 2–year permit 1597 for an estimated take of 7,313 juvenile winter-run Chinook Salmon, 1,802 juvenile spring-run Chinook Salmon, and 204 juvenile Central Valley steelhead per year to quantified site-specific characteristics at each of 4 pre-selected diversion sites to fish entrainment. This research will correlate fish entrainment with physical, hydraulic, and habitat variables during irrigation diversion periods over a two-year period. Mr. Vogel requests authorization for an estimated total take of 9,319 juveniles (with 100 percent incidental mortality) per year resulting from the collection of fish diverted out of their natural habitat. Sampling will be continuously from April 1 through October 31 each year for two years at the RD 108 Tyndall Mound Diversion (lat. 38°54′30″ N, long. 121°48′42″ W), RD 108 Howell’s Landing Diversion (lat. 38° 55′44′ N, long. 121° 50′14″ W), RD 108 Boyers Bend Diversion (lat. 38°57′15″ N, long. 121°50′27″ W), and Feather Water District North Diversion (lat. 39°02′44″ N, long. 121°36′37″ W) located in the Sacramento and Feather Rivers. If any listed species are collected alive they will be immediately returned into rivers outside the influence of the diversion pumps. Individuals are measured and identified to species or run. Mr. Vogel will take a total of 192 juveniles of the threatened Southern Distinct Population Segment of North American green sturgeon (with 100 percent incidental mortality). This research will provide information to natural resource managers in the implementation of the Central Valley Project Fish Screen Program to better protect listed species. Dated: January 12, 2007.

Section 3103 of the Trade Act of 2002 amended the Andean Trade Preference Act (ATPA) to provide for duty and quota-free treatment for certain textile and apparel articles imported from designated Andean Trade Promotion and Drug Eradication Act (ATPDEA) beneficiary countries. Section 204(b)(3)(B)(iii) of the amended ATPA provides duty- and quota-free treatment for certain apparel articles assembled in ATPDEA beneficiary countries from regional fabric and components, subject to quantitative limitation. More specifically, this provision applies to apparel articles sewn or otherwise assembled in one or more ATPDEA beneficiary countries from fabrics or from fabric components formed or from components knit-to-shape, in one or more ATPDEA beneficiary countries, from yarns wholly formed in the United States or one or more ATPDEA beneficiary countries (including fabrics not formed from yarns, if such fabrics are classifiable under heading 5602 and 5603 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) and are formed in one or more ATPDEA beneficiary countries). Such apparel articles may also contain certain other eligible fabrics, fabric components, or components knit-toshape. The TRHCA of 2006 extended the expiration of the ATPA to June 30, 2007. See Section 7002(a) of the TRHCA 2006. The purpose of the notice is to extend the period of the quantitative limitation for preferential tariff treatment under the regional fabric provision for imports PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2661 of qualifying apparel articles through June 30, 2007. See Limitations of Dutyand Quota-Free Imports of Apparel Articles Assembled in Beneficiary ATPDEA Countries from Regional Country Fabric, published in the Federal Register on September 26, 2006. (71 FR 56110). For the period beginning on October 1, 2006 and extending through June 30, 2007, the aggregate quantity of imports eligible for preferential treatment under the regional fabric provision is 1,164,288,418 square meters equivalent. Apparel articles entered in excess of this quantity will be subject to otherwise applicable tariffs. This quantity is calculated using the aggregate square meter equivalents of all apparel articles imported into the United States, derived from the set of Harmonized System lines listed in the Annex to the World Trade Organization Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (ATC), and the conversion factors for units of measure into square meter equivalents used by the United States in implementing the ATC.
