Agency: U.S. Census Bureau. Title: School Enrollment Supplement to the Current Population Survey. Form Number(s): None. OMB Control Number: 0607–0464. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Burden Hours: 2,750. Number of Respondents: 55,000. Average Hours per Response: 3 minutes. Needs and Uses: The purpose of this request for review is to obtain continued clearance for the supplemental inquiry concerning school enrollment to be conducted in conjunction with the October Current Population Survey (CPS). The School Enrollment Supplement is jointly sponsored by the U.S. Census Bureau, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). A number of questions in this supplement may appear in the American Community Survey (ACS) and in other VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:15 Jun 05, 2009 Jkt 217001 demographic surveys. However, this supplement’s comprehensive set of questions does not duplicate any other single information collection, and ensures the historical continuity of a data series that spans over 4 decades. This data series provides basic information on enrollment status of various segments of the population necessary as background for policy formulation and implementation. The CPS October supplement is the only annual source of data on public/private elementary and secondary school enrollment and characteristics of private school students and their families, which are used for tracking historical trends and for policy planning and support. The basic school enrollment questions have been collected annually in the CPS for 50 years. Consequently, this supplement is the only source of historical data—at the national level— on the age distribution and family characteristics of college students, and on the demographic characteristics of preprimary school enrollment. As part of the Federal government’s efforts to collect data and provide timely information to local governments for policymaking decisions, this supplement provides national trends in enrollment and progress in school. Discontinuance of these data would mean not complying with the Federal government’s obligation to provide data to decision makers on current educational issues and would disrupt a data series that has been in existence for 50 years. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: Annually. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, section 182 and Title 29, United States Code, sections 1–9. OMB Desk Officer: Brian HarrisKojetin, (202) 395–7314.

SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (``Department'') and the International Trade Commission 
(``ITC'') that revocation of the antidumping duty order on saccharin 
from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') would likely lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an 
industry in the United States, the Department is publishing a notice of 
continuation of the antidumping duty order.

    As a result of its review, the Department determined that

and animal feeds. It is also used in metalworking fluids. There are 
four primary chemical compositions of saccharin: (1) Sodium saccharin 
(American Chemical Society Chemical Abstract Service (``CAS'') Registry 
128-44-9); (2) calcium saccharin (CAS Registry 6485-34-3); (3) acid (or

HTSUS subheading, including research and specialized grades. Although 
the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the Department's written description of the scope of this order remains 
dispositive.

Continuation of the Order

    As a result of these determinations by the Department and the ITC 
that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an 
industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the 
Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping 
order on saccharin from the PRC. United States Customs and Border 
Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at 
the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject 
merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of the order will 
be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of 
continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department 
intends to initiate the next five-year review of the order not later 
than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of
