Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 198 / Thursday, October 15, 2009 / Notices because the Department requires additional time to analyze issues raised in parties’ briefs and rebuttal briefs which were also discussed in meetings with counsel for the parties, such as, surrogate values and third–country processing. Therefore, given the complexity of issues in this case, we are extending the time limit for completion of the final results by 30 days. An extension of 30 days from the current deadline of November 5, 2009, would result in a new deadline of December 5, 2009. However, since December 5, 2009, falls on a Saturday, a non–business day, the final results will now be due no later than December 7, 2009, the next business day. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: October 8, 2009. John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. [FR Doc.

Animals would be recaptured after the foraging trip to remove the recorders. Research would occur on San Nicolas Island off the coast of California. Annually, up to 6000 California sea lions, 500 harbor seals (Phoca vitulina), 1000 northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris), and 150 northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus) may be incidentally harassed during research.
