These facilities are in close proximity to the Wild, Scenic, and Recreational segments of the Illinois River.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 17, 2007, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) 
published a notice of inquiry in the Federal Register (72 FR 39052) 
that invited the public to submit comments regarding the Commerce 
Control List (CCL) in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).
    The notice indicated that, in addition to seeking recommendations 
from its Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) as a part of a systematic 
review of the CCL, BIS believed that it would also be beneficial to 
allow interested members of the public to submit comments regarding the 
CCL.
    Specifically, in addition to seeking recommendations from its TACs, 
BIS invited the interested public to submit comments regarding:
    (1) The overall structure of the CCL, including suggestions for how 
the structure of the CCL may be changed to better advance U.S. national 
security, foreign policy, and economic interests;
    (2) Types of items that should be listed on the CCL and the 
appropriate levels of controls to be placed on those items, taking into 
account technology levels, markets, and foreign availability;
    (3) Any updates to the CCL item descriptions that would enable the 
descriptions to better reflect the intent of the multinational controls 
and to eliminate any overly broad descriptions that inadvertently 
capture non-critical items that are not controlled by other countries; 
and
    (4) Coordination and harmonization of controls on items covered by 
the multilateral regimes, such as the Wassenaar Arrangement.
    The notice of inquiry indicated that the deadline for public 
comments closes on September 17, 2007. BIS is now extending the comment 
period until November 1, 2007, to allow the public additional time to 
comment on the notice of inquiry.
