The Proposed RMP/FEIS includes consideration of the designation of Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs). The proposed plan includes retaining all or portions of the following existing ACECs: In-Ko-Pah ACEC—(currently 22,186 acres); Table Mountain ACEC— (currently 4,293 acres). In the Proposed RMP/FEIS, the In-Ko-Pah ACEC would be reduced in the north and east to avoid overlap with designated wilderness and wilderness study areas, and expanded in the south and west to include critical habitat for Peninsular Bighorn Sheep. Use of public lands within these ACECs would vary, depending on the resources and/or values identified but would likely include limitations on OHV use and livestock grazing. Comments on the Eastern San Diego County Draft RMP/EIS received from the public and internal BLM review comments were incorporated into the Proposed RMP. Public comments resulted in corrections, clarifying text, and the addition of new data used in the analysis of impacts. The Proposed Eastern San Diego County RMP would provide comprehensive, long-range decisions for the use and management of resources in the planning area administered by the BLM and focus on the principles of multiple use and sustained yield. As noted above, instructions for filing a protest with the Director of the BLM regarding the Proposed RMP and Final EIS are described in 43 CFR 1610.5–2. E-mailed and faxed protests will not be accepted as valid protests unless the protesting party also provides the original letter by regular or overnight mail postmarked by the close of the protest period. Under these conditions, BLM will consider the e-mailed or faxed protest as an advance copy and it will receive full consideration. If you wish to provide BLM with such advance notification, please direct faxed protests to the attention of the BLM protest coordinator at (202) 452–5112, and emails to Brenda_HudgensWilliams@blm.gov. All protests, including the follow-up letter (if e-mailing or faxing) must be in writing and mailed to one of the following addresses: Regular Mail: Director (210) Attention: Brenda Williams P.O. Box 66538 Washington, DC 20035 Overnight Mail: Director (210) Attention: Brenda Williams VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:08 Dec 06, 2007 Jkt 214001 1620 L Street, NW., Suite 1075 Washington, DC 20036 Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your protest, you should be aware that your entire protest—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time.

ACTION: Notice of list of explosive materials. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 841(d) and 27 CFR 555.23, the Department must publish and revise at least annually in the Federal Register a list of explosives determined to be within the coverage of 18 U.S.C. 841 et. seq.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The list is intended to include any and all mixtures containing any of the materials on the list. Materials constituting blasting agents are marked by an asterisk. While the list is comprehensive, it is not all-inclusive. The fact that an explosive material is not on the list does not mean that it is not within the coverage of the law if it otherwise meets the statutory definitions in 18 U.S.C. 841. Explosive materials are listed alphabetically by their common names followed, where applicable, by chemical names and synonyms in brackets. The Department has not added any new terms to the list of explosives or removed or revised any listing since its last publication.

Properties Company of St. Paul, Minnesota (collectively ``3M''). 72 FR

alleges violations of section 337 in the importation into the United 
States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States 
after importation of certain rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, 
components thereof, and products containing the same by reason of 
infringement of one or more of claims 1, 2, 13, and 15-19 of U.S. 
Patent No. 6,964,828 (``the `828 patent'') and claims 10, 15, 16, and 
22 of U.S. Patent No. 7,078,128 (``the `128 patent''). The amended

issue a permanent exclusion order and cease and desist orders. 
Subsequently, respondents Sony, Lenovo, Batteries Com, Matsushita, 
Panasonic, Total Micro, and Sanyo were terminated from the

Commission has determined not to review the ID.
    3M filed a supplement to its motion pursuant to Commission rule 
210.16 that it does not seek a general exclusion order. 3M also filed a 
declaration stating

terminated.
