DPR–26 and DPR–64, Indian Point Nuclear Generating Unit Nos. 2 and 3 The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (the licensee) to withdraw its March 13, 2007, application for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License No. DPR–26 for Indian Point Nuclear Generating Unit No. 2 and Facility Operating License No. DPR–64 for Indian Point Nuclear Generating Unit No. 3, located in Westchester County, New York. The proposed amendments would have revised the fire protection license conditions by removing the listing of dated Fire Protection Safety Evaluation Reports (SERs) contained within the licenses. The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on April 10, 2007 (72 FR 17947). However, by letter dated May 6, 2008, the licensee withdrew the proposed change. For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated March 13, 2007, and the licensee’s letter dated May 6, 2008, which withdrew the application for a license amendment.

AGENCY: 34349 Notice of Public Availability of Agency Inventory of Activities That Are Not Inherently Governmental and of Activities That Are Inherently Governmental. ACTION: SUMMARY: The Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act, Public Law 105–270, requires agencies to develop inventories each year of activities performed by their employees that are not inherently governmental— i.e., inventories of commercial activities. The FAIR Act further requires OMB to review the inventories in consultation with the agencies and publish a notice of public availability in the Federal Register after the consultation process is completed. In accordance with the FAIR Act, OMB is publishing this notice to announce the availability of inventories from the agencies listed below. These inventories identify both commercial activities and activities that are inherently governmental. This is the first release of the FAIR Act inventories for FY 2007. Interested parties who disagree with the agency’s initial judgment may present a challenge to the agency regarding the inclusion or the omission of an activity on the list of activities that are not inherently governmental within 30 working days and, if not satisfied with this review, may appeal to a higher level within the agency. The Office of Federal Procurement Policy has made available a FAIR Act User’s Guide through its Internet site: http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/ procurement/fair-index.html. This User’s Guide will help interested parties review FY 2007 FAIR Act inventories. Paul A. Denett, Administrator.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elissa Alben, Assistant General Counsel, Office of the United States Trade Representative, 600 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC, (202) 395–3150. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: USTR is providing notice that the United States has requested consultations with the EC and its member States pursuant to the DSU. If such consultations should fail to resolve the matter and a dispute settlement panel is established pursuant to the DSU, such panel, which would hold its meetings in Geneva, Switzerland, would be expected to issue a report on its findings and recommendations within nine months after it is established. Major Issues Raised by the United States On May 28, 2008, the United States requested consultations with the EC and its member States regarding the tariff treatment the EC and its member States accord to set-top boxes with a communication function, flat panel displays, ‘‘input or output units,’’ and facsimile machines. • Set-top boxes with a communication function. On May 7, 2008, the EC published an amendment to the Explanatory Notes to the EC’s Combined Nomenclature (CN), which provides that the duty-free heading CN 8528 71 13 (‘‘set-top boxes with a PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 communication function’’) no longer includes set-top boxes with modems of certain types (e.g., Ethernet modems) or set-top boxes which ‘‘incorporate a device performing a recording or reproducing function (for example, a hard disk or DVD drive).’’ As a result of this exclusion, the EC and its member States impose a duty on these set-top boxes. In addition, the EC added an explanatory note to CN 8521 90 00 indicating that the subheading includes set-top boxes ‘‘which incorporate a device performing a recording or reproducing function (for example, a hard disk or DVD drive).’’ Products classified in CN 8521 90 00 are subject to an MFN duty of 13.9%. • Flat panel displays (including LCD, electro luminescence, plasma and other technologies). On March 31, 2005, the EC published Council Regulation (EC) No. 493/2005, stating that certain flat panel displays using LCD technology that are ‘‘capable of reproducing video images from a source other than an automatic data-processing machine’’ are not covered by the Information Technology Agreement (ITA) or by the Communication on its implementation (Council Decision 97/359/EC of 24 March 1997). On April 26, 2005, the EC issued Commission Regulation (EC) No. 634/2005, stating that flat panel displays with certain attributes, including DVI, would be classified in a dutiable tariff line. On December 29, 2005, the EC published Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2171/2005, which also provided that certain flat panel displays would be classified in a dutiable tariff line if they had certain attributes, including DVI. On December 30, 2006, the EC published amendments to the Explanatory Notes to accompany CN E:\FR\FM\17JNN1.SGM 17JNN1

OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET


Public Availability of Fiscal Year 2007 Agency Inventories Under 
the Federal Activities Inventory Reform Act

AGENCY: Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the 
President.

ACTION: Notice of Public Availability of Agency Inventory of Activities 
That Are Not Inherently Governmental and of Activities That Are 
Inherently Governmental.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act, Public Law 
105-270, requires agencies to develop inventories each year of 
activities performed by their employees that are not inherently 
governmental--i.e., inventories of commercial activities. The FAIR Act 
further requires OMB to review the inventories in consultation with the 
agencies and publish a notice of public availability in the Federal 
Register after the consultation process is completed. In accordance 
with the FAIR Act, OMB is publishing this notice to announce the 
availability of inventories from the agencies listed below. These 
inventories identify both commercial activities and activities that are 
inherently governmental.
    This is the first release of the FAIR Act inventories for FY 2007. 
Interested parties who disagree with the agency's initial judgment may 
present a challenge to the agency regarding the inclusion or the 
omission of an activity on the list of activities that are not 
inherently governmental within 30 working days and, if not satisfied 
with this review, may appeal to a higher level within the agency.
    The Office of Federal Procurement Policy has made available a FAIR 
Act User's Guide through its Internet site: http://www.whitehouse.gov/
omb/procurement/fair-index.html. This User's Guide will help interested 
parties review FY 2007 FAIR Act inventories.
