Initiation of Five-Year (“Sunset”) Review, 56593-56594 [E9-26346]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 210 / Monday, November 2, 2009 / Notices NMFS is decreasing the fee rate to $0.016 per pound which NMFS has determined is sufficient to ensure timely loan repayment. To provide more accessible services, streamline collections, and save taxpayer dollars, subsector members may disburse collected fee deposits to NMFS by using a secure Federal system on the Internet known as Pay.gov. Pay.gov enables subsector members to use their checking accounts to electronically disburse their collected fee deposits to NMFS. Subsector members who have access to the Internet should consider using this quick and easy collected fee disbursement method. Subsector members may access Pay.gov by going directly to Pay.gov’s Federal website at: http://www.pay.gov/paygov/. Subsector members who do not have access to the Internet or who simply do not wish to use the Pay.gov electronic system, may continue to disburse their collected fee deposits to us by sending their checks to our lockbox. Our lockbox’s address is: NOAA Fisheries Longline Catcher Processor Non-pollock Buyback P. O. Box 979028 St. Louis, MO 63197—9000 Subsector members must not forget to include with their disbursements the fee collection report applicable to each disbursement. The fee collection report tells NMFS how much of the disbursement it must apply to the reduction fishery loan. Subsector members using Pay.gov will find an electronic fee collection report form to receive information and accompany electronic disbursements. Subsector members who do not use Pay.gov must include a hard copy fee collection report with each of their disbursements. Subsector members not using Pay.gov may also access the NMFS website for an Excel spreadsheet version of the fee collection report at: http:// DOC case No. III. Notice The new fee rate for the Non-Pollock Groundfish fishery will begin on January 1, 2010. From and after this date, all subsector members paying fees on the non-pollock groundfish fishery shall begin paying non-pollock groundfish fishery program fees at the revised rate. Fee collection and submission shall follow previously established methods in § 600.1013 of the framework rule and in the final fee rule published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2007 (72 FR 54219). The revised fees applicable to the non-pollock groundfish program’s reduction fishery is as follows: FISHERY CURRENT FEE RATE NEW FEE RATE Non-Pollock Groundfish $0.02 per pound $0.016 per pound Authority: The authority for this action is Pub.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) seeks public comment on any subsidies, including stumpage subsidies, provided by certain countries exporting softwood lumber or softwood lumber products to the United States during the period January 1 through June 30, 2009. DATES: Comments must be submitted within thirty days after publication of this notice. ADDRESSES: Written comments (original and six copies) should be sent to the Secretary of Commerce, Attn: James Terpstra, Import Administration, APO/ Dockets Unit, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20230.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1 In comments made on the interim final sunset regulations, a number of parties stated that the proposed five-day period for rebuttals to substantive responses to a notice of initiation was insufficient. This requirement was retained in the final sunset regulations at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(4). As provided in 19 CFR 351.302(b), however, the Department will consider individual requests to extend that five-day deadline based upon a showing of good cause. PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background On June 18, 2008, Section 805 of Title VIII of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Softwood Lumber Act of 2008) was enacted into law. Under this provision, the Secretary of Commerce is mandated to submit to the appropriate Congressional committees a report every 180 days on any subsidies provided by countries exporting softwood lumber or softwood lumber products to the United States, including stumpage subsidies. The Department submitted its first subsidy report to Congress on December 15, 2008, and its second subsidy report on June 15, 2009. As part of its newest report, the Department intends to include a list of subsidy programs identified with sufficient clarity by the public in response to this notice. Request for Comment Given the large number of countries that export softwood lumber and softwood lumber products to the United States, we are soliciting public comment only on subsidies provided by countries whose exports accounted for at least one percent of total U.S. imports of softwood lumber by quantity, as classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule code 4407.1001 (which accounts for the vast majority of imports), during the period January 1 through June 30, 2009. Official U.S. import data published by the United States International Trade Commission Tariff and Trade DataWeb indicate that exports of softwood lumber from Canada, Chile, Germany, Sweden and Brazil each account for at least one percent of U.S. imports of softwood lumber products during that time period. We intend to rely on similar previous six-month periods to identify the countries subject to future reports on softwood lumber subsidies. For example, we will rely on U.S. imports of softwood lumber and softwood lumber products during the period July 1 through December 31, 2009, to select the countries subject to the next report. Under U.S. trade law, a subsidy exists where a government authority: (i) Provides a financial contribution; (ii) provides any form of income or price support within the meaning of Article XVI of the GATT 1994; or (iii) makes a payment to a funding mechanism to provide a financial contribution to a person, or entrusts or directs a private entity to make a financial contribution, if providing the contribution would normally be vested in the government and the practice does not differ in substance from practices normally followed by governments, and a benefit is thereby conferred.
