The BLM petition/application has been approved by the Assistant Secretary, Land and Minerals Management. Therefore, it constitutes a withdrawal proposal of the Secretary of the Interior (43 CFR 2310.1–3(e)). The purpose of the withdrawal is to protect and preserve the biological and cultural resources with 24 ACECs. These ACECs are situated in remote and relatively pristine areas of the Mojave Desert, encompassing significant and/or unique biological and cultural resource values. To mitigate for loss of sensitive resources resulting from urbanization, the proposal would withdraw the subject lands from mineral location and entry. The application will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR 2300. The use of a rightof-way, interagency, or a cooperative agreement would not adequately constrain non-discretionary uses which could adversely affect the special wildlife and riparian areas, threatened and endangered species and their habitats (specifically the threatened desert tortoise), archaeological and cultural resources, historic and prehistoric areas, paleontological and geological resources, and natural hazard areas. The uniqueness of these resources, habitats, and areas could also be irreversibly damaged. No water rights would be needed to fulfill the purpose of this withdrawal. Records relating to the application may be examined by interested parties at the BLM Las Vegas Field Office. For a period of 90 days from the date of publication of this notice, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may present their views in writing to the BLM Las Vegas Field Office. Facsimiles, telephone calls, and electronic mails are unacceptable means of notification. Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Las Vegas Field Office, at the address noted above during regular business hours 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays.

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. Individual respondents may request confidentiality. If you wish to withhold your name or address from public review or from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comments. Such requests will be honored to the extent allowed by law. All submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, will be made available for public inspection in their entirety. In accordance with 43 CFR 2310.3– 1(b)(2)(v) a public meeting will be provided in connection with the proposed withdrawal at a location to be determined. The public will be notified of the date, time, and location of the public meeting through a notice published in the Federal Register at least 30 days before the scheduled date of the public meeting. Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, or discretionary land use authorizations of a temporary nature may be allowed in accordance with the Las Vegas Resource Management Plan, but only with the approval of an authorized officer of the BLM during the temporary segregation period. This withdrawal proposal will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR 2300. For a period of 2 years from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the lands will be segregated as specified above unless the application is denied or cancelled or the withdrawal is approved prior to that date. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES (Authority: 43 CFR 2310.3–1) Dated: October 26, 2007.

On November 1, 1996, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’) suspended an antidumping duty investigation on imports of fresh tomatoes from Mexico (61 FR 56618). On October 1, 2001, Commerce initiated a five-year review of the suspended investigation (66 FR 49926). On the basis of the withdrawal from the suspension agreement by Mexican tomato growers which accounted for a significant percentage of all fresh tomatoes imported into the United States from Mexico, Commerce terminated the suspension agreement, terminated the review, and resumed the antidumping investigation, effective July 30, 2002 (67 FR 50858, August 6, 2002). On December 16, 2002, Commerce once again suspended the antidumping duty investigation on imports of fresh tomatoes from Mexico (67 FR 77044). The Commission is now conducting a second review to determine whether termination of the suspended investigation would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. It will assess the adequacy of interested party responses to this notice of institution to determine whether to conduct a full review or an expedited review. The Commission’s determination in any expedited review will be based on the facts available, which may include information provided in response to this notice. Definitions. The following definitions apply to this review: (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is within the scope of the five-year review, as defined by the Department of Commerce. (2) The Subject Country in this review is Mexico. (3) The Domestic Like Product is the domestically produced product or products which are like, or in the absence of like, most similar in characteristics and uses with, the Subject Merchandise. For the purpose of the preliminary investigation, the Commission defined the Domestic Like Product as all fresh market tomatoes. Fresh market tomatoes do not include processing tomatoes. (4) The Domestic Industry is the U.S. producers as a whole of the Domestic Like Product, or those producers whose collective output of the Domestic Like Product constitutes a major proportion of the total domestic production of the product.

line of the ACEC, which follows closely the edge of the Mesa and 
Toquop Wash. However, the line is not the Mesa edge, nor Toquop 
Wash, but follows closely between the two. The ``Boundary Line'' 
denoted for the eastern edge of the ACEC is shown on the 7.5 minute 
USGS Flat Top Mesa Topographic Map.

    The areas described above aggregate approximately 944,343 acres in 
Clark and Nye County.
    The BLM petition/application has been approved by the Assistant 
Secretary, Land and Minerals Management. Therefore, it constitutes a 
withdrawal proposal of the Secretary of the Interior (43 CFR 2310.1-
3(e)).
    The purpose of the withdrawal is to protect and preserve the 
biological and cultural resources with 24 ACECs. These ACECs are 
situated in remote and relatively pristine areas of the Mojave Desert, 
encompassing significant and/or unique biological and cultural resource 
values. To mitigate for loss of sensitive resources resulting from 
urbanization, the proposal would withdraw the subject lands from 
mineral location and entry.
    The application will be processed in accordance with the 
regulations set forth in 43 CFR 2300. The use of a right-of-way, 
interagency, or a cooperative agreement would not adequately constrain 
non-discretionary uses which could adversely affect the special 
wildlife and riparian areas, threatened and endangered species and 
their habitats (specifically the threatened desert tortoise), 
archaeological and cultural resources, historic and prehistoric areas, 
paleontological and geological resources, and natural hazard areas. The 
uniqueness of these resources, habitats, and areas could also be 
irreversibly damaged.
    No water rights would be needed to fulfill the purpose of this 
withdrawal.
    Records relating to the application may be examined by interested 
parties at the BLM Las Vegas Field Office.
    For a period of 90 days from the date of publication of this 
notice, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or 
objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may present their 
views in writing to the BLM Las Vegas Field Office. Facsimiles, 
telephone calls, and electronic mails are unacceptable means of 
notification.
    Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will 
be available for public review at the BLM Las Vegas Field Office, at 
the address noted above during regular business hours 8 a.m. to 4:30 
p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Before including your 
address, phone number,
