An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a currently valid OMB control number and the agency informs potential persons who are to respond to the collection of information that such persons are not required to respond to VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:47 Apr 15, 2009 Jkt 217001 the collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Biennially. Total Burden Hours: 356. Agricultural Marketing Service Title: Farmers Market Questionnaire. OMB Control Number: 0581–0169. Summary of Collection: The Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (7 U.S.C. 1621–1627) authorizes the Transportation and Marketing (T&M) Program, Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) to conduct research to find better designs, development techniques, and operating methods for modern farmer’s markets under the Agency’s Marketing Service Branch. Individual studies are conducted in close cooperation with local interested parties. Recommendations are made available to local decision makers interested in constructing modern farmer’s markets to serve area producers and consumers. T&M researchers will survey by mail, with telephone follow-up, the managers of farmer’s markets. These markets represent a varied range of sizes, geographical locations, types, ownership, and structure and will provide a valid overview of farmer’s markets in the United States. Need and Use of the Information: The form, TM–6 ‘‘Farmer’s Market Questionnaire,’’ is used to collect information and will serve as a survey instrument to obtain a clearer picture of existing farmer’s market structure as well as provide a measure of growth. Information such as the size of markets, operating times and days, retail and wholesale sales, management structure, and rules and regulations governing the markets are all important questions that need to be answered in the design of a new market. The information developed by this survey will support better designs, development techniques, and operating methods for modern farmers markets and outline improvements that can be applied to revitalize existing markets. If this information is not collected, the ongoing research to develop new farmers’ markets must rely on limited and often anecdotal information. This narrow focus will limit the ability of researchers to provide effective designs and development plans for new markets where such information is not immediately available.

DATES: Effective Date: April 15, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jerrold Freeman or Richard Rimlinger, AD/CVD Operations, Office 5, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC, 20230; telephone: (202) 482–0180 or (202) 482– 4477, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background At the request of interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:47 Apr 15, 2009 Jkt 217001 Department) initiated administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on polyethylene retail carrier bags from Malaysia, Thailand, and the People’s Republic of China for the period August 1, 2007, through July 31, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 56795 (September 30, 2008). 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)(2). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of these three administrative reviews by the current deadline of May 3, 2009, for several reasons. Specifically, the Department has granted the respondents in each of the reviews several extensions to respond to the original and supplemental questionnaires. Thus, the Department needs additional time to review and analyze the responses submitted by the respondents in each review. Further, the Department requires additional time to review, and verify as appropriate, cost-of-production and/or sales information submitted by various respondents in each of the reviews. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we are partially extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of these reviews until July 2, 2009. 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). Dated: April 9, 2009. John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. [FR Doc.
