ACTION: Notice. ebenthall on PROD1PC60 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before January 6, 2009. ADDRESSES: Direct all written comments to Diana Hynek, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, Department of Commerce, Room 6625, 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230 (or via the Internet at dHynek@doc.gov.) VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:08 Nov 06, 2008 Jkt 217001 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument and instructions should be directed to Maureen Klovers, Program Analyst, (p) 202–482–2785, (f) 202–482– 2838, mklovers@eda.doc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) mission is to lead the federal economic development agenda by promoting innovation and competitiveness, and preparing American regions for growth and success in the worldwide economy. This information collection is necessary to determine the applicant’s eligibility for investment assistance under EDA’s authorizing statute, the Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965, as amended (42 U.S.C. 3121 et seq.), and regulations (13 CFR Chapter III). The information collection also determines the quality of the proposed scope of work to address the pressing economic distress of the region in which the proposed project will be located, the merits of the activities for which the investment assistance is requested, and the ability of the eligible applicant to carry out the proposed activities successfully. Form ED–900 is used to collect the necessary information. This form was approved for use by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on February 15, 2008, and was made available for use by the public on October 1, 2008. It replaced EDA’s previous suite of application materials: (i) The Pre-Application for Investment Assistance (Form ED–900P), (ii) the Application for Investment Assistance (Form ED–900A), and (iii) all programspecific components required to complete the ED–900A. EDA continues to require additional government-wide federal grant assistance forms from the Standard Form 424 family and certain Department of Commerce forms as part of the application package. EDA believes the new ED–900 has significantly reduced the paperwork burden on applicants and government personnel. The introduction of this form is expected to reduce applicant burden from a combined 46 hours to complete the aforementioned documents to 22 hours for the Form ED–900. In addition, because Form ED–900 consolidated all EDA requirements into a single application, it facilitates electronic application submission through http:// www.grants.gov. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66217 II. Method of Collection EDA will accept hardcopy submissions or electronic submissions through http://www.grants.gov. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0610–0094. Form Number(s): ED–900. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Individuals or households; business or other for-profit organizations; not-for-profit institutions; State, local, or tribal governments; Economic Development District Organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 875. Estimated Time per Response: 22 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 18,953. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 7, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Eastwood, AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3874. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On June 4, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel concrete reinforcing bars (rebar) from Turkey. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 31813 (June 4, 2008). The period of review is April 1, 2007, through March 31, 2008, and the preliminary results are currently due no later than December 31, 2008. The review covers seven producers/ exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. We determine PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 that it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Although the Department has received the initial questionnaire responses from most of the respondents, upon review of the questionnaire responses, the Department believes it needs to issue supplemental questionnaires to clarify responses on the record. Preparing these supplemental questionnaires and analyzing the respondents’ responses requires additional time. Therefore, we have fully extended the deadline for completing the preliminary results until April 30, 2009. The deadline for the final results of the review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. This extension notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: November 3, 2008. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

SUMMARY: On May 5, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel concrete reinforcing bars (rebar) from Turkey. This review covers four producers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States. The period of review (POR) is April 1, 2006, through March 31, 2007. Based on our analysis of the comments received and on our verification findings, we have made certain changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the preliminary results. The final weighted-average dumping margins for the reviewed firms are listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ Finally, we have determined to revoke the antidumping duty order with AGENCY: E:\FR\FM\07NON1.SGM 07NON1
