Download as PDF 7232 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 32 / Thursday, February 18, 2010 / Notices informally. When the complaint involves structural defects which cannot be resolved by the cooperation of the builder or dealer/contractor, it authorizes expenditure to resolve the defect with grant funds. Resolution could involve expenditure for (1) repairing defects; (2) reimbursing for emergency repairs; (3) pay temporary living expenses or (4) convey dwelling to RHS with release of liability for the RHS loan. Need and Use of the Information: The information is collected from agency borrowers and the local agency office serving the county in which the dwelling is located. This information is used by Rural Housing Staff to evaluate the request and assist the borrower in identifying possible causes and corrective actions. The information is collected on a case-by-case basis when initiated by the borrower. Without this information, RHS would be unable to assure that eligible borrowers would receive compensation to repair defects to their newly constructed dwellings. Description of Respondents: Business or for-profit. Number of Respondents: 300. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion. Total Burden Hours: 120. WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Rural Housing Service Title: 7 CFR Part 1940–G, Environmental Program. OMB Control Number: 0575–0094. Summary of Collection: The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires Federal agencies prior to the approval of proposed actions to consider the potential environmental impacts of these actions. Consequently, for the agencies to comply with NEPA, it is necessary to have information on the types of environmental resources on site or in the vicinity that might impact the proposed action. Also, information is required on the nature of the project selected by the applicant. Need and Use of the Information: The agency will collect environmental data using form RD 1940–20, Request for Environmental Information. Having all activities and environmental information on the proposed project site will enable the Agency official to determine the magnitude of the potential environmental impacts and whether the project is controversial for environmental reasons. The agency’s failure to collect the environmental information would result in a violation of NEPA. Thus, the agency would have no basis to support a decision regarding the need for an environmental impact statement.

[FR Doc. 2010–3041 Filed 2–17–10; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3410–XT–P DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request; Correction February 5, 2010. The Department of Agriculture has submitted the following information collection requirement(s) to OMB for review and clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104–13. Comments regarding (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of burden including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology should be addressed to: Desk Officer for Agriculture, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), OIRA_Submission@OMB.EOP.GOV or fax (202) 395–5806 and to Departmental Clearance Office, USDA, OCIO, Mail Stop 7602, Washington, DC 20250– 7602. Comments regarding these information collections are best assured of having their full effect if received within 30 days of this notification. Copies of the submission(s) may be obtained by calling (202) 720–8958. 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 the collection of information unless it PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 displays a currently valid OMB control number. Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Title: Importation of Unshu Oranges from the Republic of Korea into Alaska. OMB Control Number: 0579–0314. Summary of Collection: Under the Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7701—et seq.), the Secretary of Agriculture is authorized to carry out operation or measures to detect, eradicate, suppress, control, prevent, or retard the spread of plant pests new to the United States or not known to be widely distributed throughout the United States. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) amended the regulations governing the importation of citrus fruit to allow fresh Unshu oranges from the Republic of Korea to be imported in the State of Alaska under certain conditions. Need and Use of the Information: APHIS requires that some plants or plant products are accompanied by a phytosanitary inspection certificate that is completed by plant health officials in the originating or transiting country. Also, individual boxes in which oranges are shipped must be stamped or printed with the following: ‘‘For importation into and distribution within the State of Alaska only.’’ APHIS uses the information on the certificate to determine the pest condition of the shipment at the time of inspection in the intensity of the inspection APHIS conducts when the shipment arrives. Without this information, all shipments would need to be inspected very thoroughly, thereby requiring considerably more time. This would slow the clearance of international shipments.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) is currently conducting an antidumping duty investigation of drill pipe from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is April 1, 2009, through September 30, 2009. We are limiting the number of quantity and value questionnaires that will be sent directly to exporters and producers and extending the deadline for parties to VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:39 Feb 17, 2010 Jkt 220001 submit a response to the quantity and value questionnaire. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Toni Dach or Bobby Wong, AD/CVD Operations Office 9, (202) 482–1655 or (202) 482–0409, respectively; Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. BACKGROUND On January 28, 2010, the Department published a notice of initiation of an antidumping duty investigation of drill pipe from the PRC. See Drill Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations, 75 FR 4531 (January 28, 2010) (‘‘Initiation’’). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Initiation, the Department stated that it intended to release quantity and value questionnaires to those PRC companies known to be exporters and producers of subject merchandise identified with complete contact information in the Petition by the Petitioners.1 See ‘‘Petitions for the Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties: Drill Pipe from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated December 31, 2009 (‘‘Petition’’), at Exhibit I–7; see also ‘‘Petitions for the Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties: Response to the Department’s Letter of January 14, 2010,’’ dated January 15, 2010, at Exhibit 4. Petitioners identified 77 producers and exporters of drill pipe from the PRC. Subsequent to the Initiation, after considering the large number of producers and exporters of drill pipe from the PRC identified by Petitioners, and considering the resources that must be utilized by the Department to mail quantity and value questionnaires to all 77 identified producers and exporters— including entering each address in a shipping handler’s Web site, researching companies’ addresses to ensure correctness, organizing mailings, and following up on potentially undeliverable mailings—the Department has thus determined that we do not have sufficient administrative resources to mail quantity and value questionnaires to all 77 identified producers and exporters. Therefore, the Department has determined to limit the number of quantity and value questionnaires it will send out to 1 VAM Drilling USA, Inc., Texas Steel Conversion, Inc., Rotary Drilling Tools, TMK IPSCO, and the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, AFL– CIO–CLC, collectively, the ‘‘Petitioners.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7233 exporters and producers based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) data for U.S. imports under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) numbers 7304.22.0030, 7304.22.0045, 7304.22.0060, 7304.23.3000, 7304.23.6030, 7304.23.6045, 7304.23.6060 and 8431.43.8040. These are the same HTSUS numbers used by Petitioner to demonstrate that dumping occurred during the POI, and closely match the subject merchandise. See Petition at 13–17. The Department will review the CBP data and comments from parties on the CBP data to determine how many quantity and value questionnaires we will mail to producers and exporters of drill pipe from the PRC. Moreover, although the Department is limiting the number of quantity and value questionnaires it will send out, exporters and producers of drill pipe that do not receive quantity and value questionnaires that intend to submit a response can obtain a copy from the Import Administration Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/ia-highlights-andnews.html. Accordingly, the Department is extending the deadline to submit responses to the quantity and value questionnaires from February 11, 2010, to March 2, 2010. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Dated: February 4, 2010. Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
