SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This investigation was instituted on September 23, 2005, based on a complaint filed by Bavarian Nordic A/S of Denmark (‘‘Bavarian Nordic’’). The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337) (‘‘section 337’’) in the VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:51 Sep 04, 2007 Jkt 211001 importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain Modified Vaccinia Ankara (‘‘MVA’’) viruses and vaccines and pharmaceutical compositions based thereon by reason of infringement of various claims of United States Patent Nos. 6,761,893 and 6,913,752. The complaint also alleged violations of section 337 in the importation of certain MVA viruses and vaccines and pharmaceutical compositions based thereon or in the sale of such articles by reason of misappropriation of trade secrets, the threat or effect of which is to destroy or substantially injure an industry in the United States. The complaint named a single respondent, Acambis PLC of the United Kingdom (‘‘Acambis’’). Only the patent allegations remain in this investigation. After a hearing and post-hearing briefing, the then-presiding ALJ issued a final initial determination (‘‘final ID’’) on September 6, 2006, finding no violation of section 337. The ALJ held that the patents were infringed but invalid. Bavarian Nordic, Acambis, and the Commission investigative attorney filed petitions for review of the final ID. On November 22, 2006, the Commission determined to review the final ID in its entirety, and to ask the parties for briefing on the issues on review and on remedy, the public interest, and bonding. On February 21, 2007, the Commission determined to remand the final ID to the ALJ and to extend the target date for completion of the investigation to October 19, 2007. The target date was subsequently extended to February 20, 2008. On July 27, 2007, complainant and respondent filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation on the basis of a consent order. The Commission investigative attorney filed a response in support of the motion. The consent order includes a provision vacating the final ID of September 6, 2006. The ALJ issued the subject ID on August 9, 2007, granting the motion for termination. He found that the consent order stipulation satisfies Commission rule 210.21(c)(3)(i), and that the termination of the investigation by consent order is not contrary to the public interest. No party petitioned for review of the ID. The Commission has determined not to review the ID. The investigation is terminated in its entirety and the final ID of September 6, 2006, is vacated. The authority for the Commission’s determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 sections 210.21(c) and 210.42(h) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.21(c), 210.42(h)).

Agency: Employment and Training Administration. Title: Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) and Welfare-to-Work (WtW) Tax Credit. OMB Control Number: 1205–0371. Form Numbers: ETA–9062; ETA– 9058; ETA–9057; ETA–9059; ETA–9063; ETA–9061; and ETA–9065. Affected Public: State Workforce Agencies; participating agencies; business sector; and disadvantaged jobseekers. Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 990,000. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 848,325. Total Estimated Annual Cost Burden: $0. Description: On May 25, 2007 the President signed into law the Small Business and Work Opportunity Tax Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110–28). Section 8211 PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50979 of this Act extended and modified the WOTC Program for a continuing 44month period through August 31, 2011. The new provisions and amendments to certain target groups apply to new hires that begin to work for an employer after May 25. Another recent legislation, the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (Pub. L. 109–432) signed into law on December 20, 2006 extended the WOTC for two additional years through December 31, 2007 and consolidated the program by merging the Welfare-toWork Tax Credit into the WOTC. This Act also made various amendments and introduced new provisions that streamline the program and make it easier for the business sector to participate. The statutory changes and new provisions required that the following program report, processing and administrative forms, and materials be revised and updated to reflect the new changes and provisions: To request a certification from a state workforce agency (SWA), employers or their representatives must submit not only IRS Form 8850 but also either ETA Form 9061 or 9062. SWAs cannot process timely filed but incomplete requests. Through a special arrangement with OMB, IRS Form 8850 was cleared by OMB May 26, 2007. Therefore, ETA is requesting this emergency ICR approval of the listed forms and program materials so that the SWAs can start processing all the new certification requests with the changes that became effective May 26, 2007. This emergency approval will help prevent the accumulation of unprocessed timely filed certification requests, which will result in significant backlogs for the states and the timely issuance to employers of certifications for all the new eligible hires in accordance with Congressional intent.
