The comment period on the draft environmental impact statement will be 45 days from the date the environmental Protection Agency publishes the notice of availability in the Federal Register. The Forest Service believes it is important to give reviewers notice of several court rulings related to public participation in the environmental review process. First, reviewers of draft environmental impact statements must structure their participation in the environmental review of the proposal so that it is meaningful and alerts an agency to the reviewer’s position and contentions, Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Corp. v. NRDC, 435 519, 553 (1978). Also, environmental objections that could be raised at the draft environmental impact statement stage but that are not raised until after completion of the final environmental impact statement may be waived or dismissed by the courts City of Angoon v. Hodel, 803 F.2d 1016, 1022 (9th Cir. 1986) and Wisconsin Heritages, Inc. v. Harris, 490 F. Supp. 1334, 1338 (E.D. Wis. 1980). Because of these court rulings, it is very important that those interested in this proposed action participate by the close of the 45 day comment period so that comments and objections are made available to the Forest Service at a time when it can meaningfully consider them and respond to them in the final environmental impact statement.

People's Republic of China

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 13, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Erin Begnal or P. Lee Smith; AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
1442 and (202) 482-1655, respectively.

Background

    On August 31, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
received a timely request from Maoming Changxing Foods Co., Ltd. 
(``Maoming Changxing''), in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c), for a 
new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen 
warmwater shrimp from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). On 
September 22, 2006, the Department found that the request for review 
with respect to Maoming Changxing met all of the regulatory 
requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated an 
antidumping duty new shipper review covering the period February 1, 
2006, through July 31, 2006. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from 
the People's Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping 
Duty Review, 71 FR 57469 (September 29, 2006). The preliminary results 
are currently due no later than March 21, 2007.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``the Act''), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue 
the preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after 
the date on which the new shipper review was initiated and the final 
results of a review within 90 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results were issued. The Department may, however, extend 
the time period for completion of the preliminary results of a new 
shipper review to 300 days if it determines that the case is 
extraordinarily complicated. See 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
    The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily 
complicated as the Department must gather additional publicly available 
information, issue additional supplemental questionnaires, and conduct 
verification of the responses. Based on the timing of the case and the 
additional information that must be gathered and verified, the 
preliminary results of this new shipper review cannot be completed 
within the statutory time limit of 180 days. Accordingly, the 
Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the 
preliminary results of the new shipper review of Maoming Changxing to 
300 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than July 
19, 2007, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.214(i)(2). The final results will, in turn, be due 90 days 
after the date of issuance of the preliminary results, unless extended.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 5, 2007.
