AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Commission invites comments from the public on whether changed circumstances exist sufficient to warrant the institution of an investigation pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1675(b)) (the Act) to review the Commission’s affirmative determination in investigation No. 731–TA–1089 (Final). The purpose of the proposed review investigation is to determine whether revocation of the existing antidumping duty order on imports of certain orange juice from Brazil is likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury. See 19 U.S.C. 1675(b)(2)(A). Certain orange juice is provided for in subheadings 2009.11.00, 2009.12.25, and 2009.19.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States.

Hearingimpaired persons can obtain information on this matter by contacting the Commission’s TDD terminal on 202– 205–1810. Persons with mobility impairments who will need special assistance in gaining access to the Commission should contact the Office of the Secretary at 202–205–2000. General information concerning the Commission may also be obtained by accessing its Internet server (http:// www.usitc.gov). The public record for this matter may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at http://edis.usitc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background. On January 13, 2006, the Department of Commerce determined that imports of certain orange juice from Brazil were being sold in the United States at less than fair value (LTFV) within the meaning of section 731 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673) (71 FR 2183, January 13, 2006); and on March 3, 2006 PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the Commission determined, pursuant to section 735(b)(1) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)(1)), that an industry in the United States was materially injured by reason of imports of such LTFV merchandise. Accordingly, Commerce ordered that antidumping duties be imposed on such imports (71 FR 12183, March 9, 2006). On June 13, 2007, the Commission received a request to review its affirmative determination in investigation No. 731–TA–1089 (Final) pursuant to section 751(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1675(b)). The request was filed by Tropicana Products, Inc. (Tropicana). Tropicana alleges that there is good cause for the Commission to conduct a review despite the statutory prohibition against conducting a review within two years of the publication of its injury determination (19 U.S.C. 1675(b)(4)). Tropicana alleges that shortfalls in the Florida juice orange crop and depleted inventories; significant price increases and a greatly constricted supply; and disruption of the alternative sources of Brazilian supply following imposition of the antidumping duty order have resulted in the domestic orange juice producers being harmed by the order. Written comments requested. Pursuant to section 207.45(b) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure, the Commission requests comments concerning whether the alleged changed circumstances, brought about by shortfalls in the Florida juice orange crop and depleted inventories; significant price increases and a greatly constricted supply; and disruption of the alternative sources of Brazilian supply following imposition of the antidumping duty order are sufficient to warrant institution of a review investigation. Written submissions. Comments must be filed with the Secretary to the Commission no later than 60 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. All written submissions must conform with the provisions of section 201.8 of the Commission’s rules; any submissions that contain business proprietary information must also conform with the requirements of sections 201.6, 207.3, and 207.7 of the Commission’s rules. The Commission’s rules do not authorize filing of submissions with the Secretary by facsimile or electronic means, except to the extent permitted by section 201.8 of the Commission’s rules, as amended, 67 FR 68036 (November 8, 2002). Authority: This notice is published pursuant to section 207.45 of the Commission’s rules. E:\FR\FM\25JYN1.SGM 25JYN1

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) proposes to initially

town of Searchlight, Nevada, for a public airport. An existing airport 
is located on public and private lands, and the center portion of the

existing airport runway be leased and then conveyed to it at the 
appraised fair market value of the land. At a future date, the BLM 
proposes to sell the 21.4 acres of public airport runway to Searchlight 
by non-competitive (direct) sale at not less than the appraised fair 
market value. The sale of the airport runway will require a cadastral 
survey and updated appraisal prior to conveyance.

9620(h) (CERCLA), as amended by the Superfund Amendments and 
Reauthorization Act of 1988, 100 Stat. 1670, notice is hereby given

found to indicate that any hazardous substances have been stored for 
one year or more, nor have any hazardous substances been disposed of or 
released on the subject property.
    Publication of this notice in the Federal Register temporarily 
segregates the above described land from appropriation under the public

effect of this notice will terminate in accordance with 43 CFR 2911.2-
3(b) (airport lease) and 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) (direct sale). Detailed 
information concerning the proposed lease/patent, including an 
environmental assessment and the approved appraisal report, is

comments of all interested parties concerning the lease/patent. To be 
considered, comments must be received at the BLM Las Vegas Field Office 
on or before the date stated above in this notice for that purpose. 
Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other 
personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware 
that your entire comment--including your personal identifying 
information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can 
ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so. Any adverse comments will be reviewed by the BLM, Nevada 
State Director.
    In the absence of any adverse comments, the decision will become 
effective on September 24, 2007. The lands will not be offered for 
lease/patent until after the decision becomes effective.
