Participation in these nationwide initiatives is voluntary, but is strongly encouraged. Energy Generation. Applicants will be awarded points if the proposal includes the installation of energy generation systems to be funded by a third party. The proposal must include an overview of the energy generation system being proposed. Evidence that an energy generation system has been funded by a third party and that it has a quantifiable positive impact on energy consumption will be required. (5 points) Energy Conservation. Applicants will be awarded points to construct (or substantially rehabilitate) housing that earns the ENERGY STAR label for new residential construction. Units earning the ENERGY STAR label must be independently verified to meet guidelines for energy efficiency as set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. All procedures used in verifying a unit for the ENERGY STAR label must comply with National Home Energy Ratings System (HERS) guidelines. ENERGY STAR guidelines for residential construction apply to homes that are three stories or less and single or low-rise multi-family residential buildings. The Applicant will include in the narrative an explanation of how they plan to incorporate ENERGY STAR. Construction plans pertaining to energy efficiency must be developed with, reviewed, and accepted by a HERS certified rater, the contractor, and the owner. Progress inspections must be made at appropriate times by a HERS certified rater to ensure that the housing is being constructed or rehabilitated according to ENERGY STAR specifications. In order to receive final payment, applicants will be required to submit the appropriate rating reports from the HERS rater to RD as evidence that the housing has been constructed to meet the standards of ENERGY STAR. In the event that housing does not meet ENERGY STAR guidelines for new residential construction, the Agency shall, at its discretion, deduct 5 points from future funding proposals.

(5 points) In the event more than one preapplication receives the same amount of points, those preapplications will then be ranked based on the actual percentage figure used for determining the points. Further, in the event that preapplications are still tied, then those pre-applications still tied will be ranked PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 based on the percentage for HPG fund use (low to high). Further, for applications where assistance to rental properties or cooperatives is proposed, those still tied will be further ranked based on the number of years the units are available for occupancy under the program (a minimum of 5 years is required). For this part, ranking will be based from most to least number of years. Finally, if there is still a tie, then a lottery system will be used. Dated: April 12, 2007. Russell T.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 29, 2006, the U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon 
steel flat products from Korea, covering the period August 1, 2005 to 
July 31, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 57465 (September 29, 2006). The 
preliminary results of this review are currently due no later than May 
3, 2007.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
or finding for which a review is requested. Section

[[Page 19689]]

751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further states that if it is not practicable to 
complete the review within the time period specified, the administering 
authority may extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary 
results by up to 120 days.
    We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this 
review within the 245-day period is not practicable for the following 
reasons. This review covers three companies, and to conduct the sales 
and cost analyses for each company requires the Department to gather, 
analyze and verify a significant amount of information pertaining to 
each company's sales practices, manufacturing costs and corporate 
relationships. Given the number and complexity of issues in this case, 
and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are 
extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review 
by 120 days. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later 
than August 31, 2007. The final results continue to be due 120 days 
after publication of the preliminary results.

    Dated: April 11, 2007.
