ACTION: Notice of Termination of Environmental Impact Statement. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the Rural Utilities Service (RUS), an agency delivering the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Utilities Programs, hereinafter referred to as Rural Development, is terminating further preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Dry Fork Station and Hughes Transmission Project in Campbell and Sheridan Counties, Wyoming. The purpose of the EIS was to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of and alternatives to the Basin Electric Power Cooperative, Inc. (Basin Electric) application for a Rural Development loan guarantee to construct and operate a coal-fired electric generation facility referred to as the Dry Fork Station. Basin Electric did not request a loan guarantee from Rural Development for the Hughes Transmission Line, but it was being evaluated as a connected action for the EIS. Basin Electric withdrew their application to Rural Development on October 17, 2007. A Draft EIS was filed with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on August 24, 2007, and notice of an extension of the public comment period to November 19, 2007, appeared in the Federal Register on October 17, 2007 (‘‘Notice of Extension of Public Comment Period, Draft Environmental Impact Statement, Dry Fork Station and Hughes Transmission Line, Wyoming’’, 72 FR 59071). Public hearings on the Draft EIS were held in Sheridan, Wyoming on September 25, 2007, and in Gillette, Wyoming on September 26, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background At the request of interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cut–to-length carbon–quality steel plate products from the Republic of Korea for the period February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 14516 (March 28, 2007) (March Initiation Notice), for Dongkuk Steel Mill Co., Ltd. (DSM), and Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 20986 (April 27, 2007), for DSEC Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSEC), and Tae Chang Steel Co., Ltd.

See March Initiation Notice for DSM, DSEC, and TC Steel. We rescinded the review of TC Steel. See Certain Cut–to-Length Carbon–Quality Steel Plate from the Republic of Korea: Notice of Partial Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 36962 (July 6, 2007). The preliminary results of both reviews are currently due no later than October 31, 2007. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 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 for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of these reviews by the current deadline of October 31, 2007. Specifically, for the antidumping review, there are a number of complex factual issues such as one respondent’s corporate affiliations, whether certain of its sales are outside the ordinary course of trade, and selection of an adverse facts–available rate for an uncooperative respondent which affect the calculations for the preliminary results. For the countervailing duty review, we need to resolve a question concerning shipments by one of the respondents. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of these reviews by 15 days until November 15, 2007.

from the Republic of Korea for the period February 1, 2006, through 
January 31, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty

steel plate products from the Republic of Korea for the period January 
1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. See March Initiation Notice for 
DSM, DSEC, and TC Steel. We rescinded the review of TC Steel. See 
Certain Cut-to-Length Carbon-Quality Steel Plate from the Republic of 
Korea: Notice of Partial Rescission of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review, 72 FR 36962 (July 6, 2007). The preliminary 
results of both reviews are currently due no later than October 31, 
2007.

Extension of Time Limit for 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 
for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 
days after the date on which the preliminary determination is 
published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these 
time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to 
extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 
365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. See also 19 CFR 
351.213(h).
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of these reviews by the current deadline of October 31, 2007. 
Specifically, for the antidumping review, there are a number of complex 
factual issues such as one respondent's corporate affiliations, whether 
certain of its sales are outside the ordinary course of trade, and 
selection of an adverse facts-available rate for an uncooperative 
respondent which affect the calculations for the preliminary results. 
For the countervailing duty review, we need to resolve a question 
concerning shipments by one of the respondents. Therefore, we are 
extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of these 
reviews by 15 days until November 15, 2007.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
