DATES: To ensure consideration, written comments must be submitted on or before December 7, 2009. ADDRESSES: Direct all written comments to Diana Hynek, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, Department of Commerce, Room 7845, 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230 (or via the Internet at dHynek@doc.gov). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument(s) and instructions should be directed to Michael Davis, U.S. Census Bureau, 7K081, Washington, DC 2033–6900, (301) 763–1605 (or via the Internet at michael.davis@census.gov). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Census Bureau plans to request a three-year extension of a currently approved collection for forms C–700, Private Construction Projects; C–700(R), Multifamily Residential Projects; and C– 700(SL), State and Local Government Projects. These forms are used to conduct the Construction Progress Reporting Surveys (CPRS) to collect information on the dollar value of construction put in place by private companies, individuals, private multifamily residential buildings, and state and local governments. The Census Bureau is the preeminent collector and provider of timely, relevant and quality data about the people and economy of the United States. The Form C–700, Private Construction Projects, collects construction put in place data for nonresidential projects owned by private companies or individuals. The Form C–700(R), Multifamily Residential Projects, collects construction put in place data for private multifamily residential buildings. The Form C– 700(SL), State and Local Government Projects, collects construction put in place data for state and local government projects. The Census Bureau uses the information from these surveys to publish the value of construction put in place series. Published estimates are used by a variety of private business and trade associations to estimate the demand for building materials and to schedule production, distribution, and sales efforts. They also provide various VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:15 Oct 05, 2009 Jkt 220001 government agencies with a tool to evaluate economic policy and to measure progress towards established goals. For example, Bureau of Economic Analysis staff use data to develop the construction components of gross private domestic investment in the gross domestic product. The Federal Reserve Board and the Department of the Treasury use the value in place data to predict the gross domestic product, which is presented to the Board of Governors and has an impact on monetary policy. 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. II. Method of Collection An independent systematic sample of projects is selected each month according to predetermined sample rates. Once a project is selected, it remains in the sample until completion of the project. Preprinted forms are mailed monthly to respondents to fill in current month data and any revisions to previous months. Some respondents are later called by a Census interviewer and report data over the phone. Having the information available from a database at the time of the interview greatly helps reduce the time respondents spend on the phone. Interviews are scheduled at the convenience of the respondent, which further reduces their burden. Dated: September 30, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 27, 2009, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) issued its preliminary results for the changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order of certain activated carbon from the People’s Republic of China. See Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and Intent to Revoke Order in Part 74 FR 4736 (January 27, 2009) (Preliminary Results). On February 9, 2009, the Department received comments from Applica Consumer Products Inc., an importer of coffeemakers and self–cleaning litter boxes that uses filters.

Hagen (USA) Corp., the requestor of this changed circumstance review. The current deadline for the final results of this review is October 26, 2009. Extension of Time Limits for Final Results In our Preliminary Results, we indicated, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.216(e), that the Department will issue the final results in the instant changed circumstances review within 270 days after the date on which the changed circumstances review is initiated. Currently, the final results of this changed circumstances review are due October 26, 2009. However, as explained below, the Department determines that good cause exists to extend the time limits for completion of this changed circumstances review. Accordingly, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.302(b), we are extending the time limit by 60 days. Subsequent to the Preliminary Results, the Department received comments from interested parties. Because of those comments, the Department has determined that it requires additional time to analyze the complex issues raised by interested parties regarding the scope exclusion request. Consequently, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.302(b), the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results in the instant review by 60 days. Therefore, the final results will be due no later than December 25, 2009. As December 25, 2009, is a Federal holiday, our final results will be issued no later than Monday, December 28, 2009. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(b) and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Dated: September 29, 2009. John M.
