Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 74456 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 236 / Monday, December 8, 2008 / Notices extent of reductions in single-storied late-seral and old forest habitats within the lower montane forests over the last 100 years that were previously dominated by large ponderosa pine trees and snags. These changes over the last 100 years are largely due to stand replacement wildfires, historical timber harvest, fire exclusion and increases in human occupancy and use. There is a need to reconsider Forest Plan direction in response to new information and changed resource conditions: • Forestwide and management area objectives need to consider the WCS habitat prioritization framework currently being developed. • Management prescription MPC 5.2 allocations may need to be reallocated to management prescriptions with desired conditions consistent with habitat conservation, maintenance and restoration. • Forest plan standards and guidelines pertaining to large treedominated habitat (e.g., wildlife standard WIST01) and large snags need to be reviewed to assure that these habitat components are conserved, maintained or restored, especially in lower montane and montane forests. • There is a need to evaluate whether Forest Plan direction should be added that specifically addresses conservation of the subset of large tree-dominated habitat in lower montane forests called ‘‘old forest’’ habitat. Impacts resulting from increases in human occupancy and use in priority habitat areas for species of concern need to be considered. Proposed Action: The Proposed Action is threefold: (1) Develop a Forest Plan Wildlife Conservation Strategy (WCS) that provides the information needed to improve Forest Plan strategies in a way that focuses limited funds and resources toward the highest priority habitats and species of concern, while minimizing threats to those species or habitats; (2) Determine if amendments to Forest Plan management direction and/or other components of the three Forest Plans are needed to reflect findings and priorities identified in the WCS; and (3) Update the wildlife assessments pertaining to 36 CFR 219.19 (1982), as needed, to reflect findings in updated analyses supporting the WCS, as well as outcomes anticipated from implementing the amended Forest Plans. Responsible Officials: The Responsible Officials are the three Forest Supervisors for the Boise, Payette, and Sawtooth NFs. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:32 Dec 05, 2008 Jkt 217001 Nature of Decision To Be Made: The Responsible Officials will review the final ETS and determine if the 2003 Plan for her respective Forest should be amended and/or modified, or if the current Forest Plan should remain unchanged. Scoping Process: This corrected notice of intent continues the scoping process, which guides development of the ETS. Written comments must be received within 30 days following publication of this NOI in the Federal Register. Providing comments within this time period ensures that they will be available to the Forest Service at a time when it can meaningfully consider them during preparation of the specific proposed amendments and Draft EIS. Beginning in December 2008, information about and status updates of this amendment process will be available on the Web site, http:// fs.usda.gov/boise (click on ‘‘Wildlife Conservation Strategy’’). It is important that reviewers provide their comments at such times and in such manner that they are useful to the agency’s preparation of the EIS. Therefore, comments should be provided prior to the close of the comment period and should clearly articulate the reviewer’s concerns and contentions. The submission of timely and specific comments can affect a reviewer’s ability to participate in subsequent administrative appeal or judicial review. Dated: December 2, 2008. Cecilia R.

Burden Hours: 38,563. Number of Respondents: 1,000,000. Average Hours per Response: 2 minutes. Needs and Uses: The U.S. Census Bureau requests authorization from the Office of Management and Budget to conduct the Census Coverage Measurement (CCM) Independent Listing Operation as part of the 2010 Census. The 2010 CCM Independent Listing Operation will be conducted in the U.S. (excluding remote Alaska) and in Puerto Rico, in selected CCM sampled areas. As in the past, the CCM operations and activities will be conducted separate from and independent of the 2010 Census operations. CCM will be conducted for the 2010 Census to provide estimates of net coverage error and components of coverage error (omissions and erroneous enumerations) for housing units and persons in housing units to improve future censuses. The data collection and matching methodologies for previous coverage measurement programs were designed only to measure net coverage error, which reflects the difference between omissions and erroneous inclusions. The Independent Listing Operation is the first step in the CCM process. It will be conducted to obtain a complete inventory of all housing unit addresses within the CCM sample block clusters before the 2010 Census enumeration commences. In those block clusters throughout the 50 states (excluding remote Alaska), the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, listers will canvass every street, road, or other place where people might live in their assigned block clusters and construct a list of housing units. Listers will contact a member of each housing unit (or proxy, as a last resort) to ensure all units at a given address are identified. They will also identify the location of each housing unit by assigning map spots on block maps provided with their assignment materials. Completed Independent Listing Books are subject to Dependent Quality Control (DQC) wherein DQC listers return to the field to check 12 housing VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:32 Dec 05, 2008 Jkt 217001 units per block cluster from a prespecified random start to ensure that the work performed is of acceptable quality and to verify that the correct blocks were visited. If the block cluster fails the DQC, then the DQC lister reworks the entire block cluster. The completed listing books are keyed for matching against the census Decennial Master Address File for the same areas. There will be two Independent Listing Forms, D–1302 and D–1302 (PR). The D–1302 is the English version of the listing form and will be used in CCM sample areas in the 50 states (excluding remote Alaska) and the District of Columbia. The D–1302 (PR) is the Spanish version of the listing form and will be used only in the CCM sample areas in Puerto Rico. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: One time. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, Section 141 authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to conduct a decennial census of the population, and Section 193 authorizes the Secretary to conduct tests to gather supplementary information related to the census.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This matter arose from a challenge to Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat from the People’s Republic of China; Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 68 FR 19504 (April 21, 2003) (Final Results) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (Issues and Decision Memo) covering the period of review September 1, 2000, through August 31, 2001. In the Final Results, the Department of Commerce (the Department) assigned China Kingdom Import & Export Co., Ltd. (China Kingdom) an antidumping duty assessment rate based on total adverse facts available because the evidence gathered at verification established that China Kingdom failed to report its total tail meat production and eight of its eleven factors of production for the period of review. See Final Results. Following publication of the Final Results, China Kingdom filed a lawsuit with the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) challenging the Department’s Final Results. The CIT overturned the Department’s determination in the Final Results to assign to China Kingdom an antidumping duty assessment rate based on total adverse facts available. See China Kingdom Import & Export Co. Ltd. v. United States, Consol. Ct. No. 03–00302, Slip Op. 07–135 (CIT September 4, 2007) (Remand Order). In the Remand Order, the CIT directed the Department to calculate and assign China Kingdom a new antidumping duty assessment rate in full compliance with the CIT’s directives, and that the Department support all its findings with substantial record evidence and include E:\FR\FM\08DEN1.SGM 08DEN1
