Under current conditions, easy public access between stream reaches downstream and upstream of Llewellyn Falls may result in a future unauthorized transplant of nonnative and/or hybridized fish to areas above the falls. Under the proposed project, the agencies would: (1) Use chemical treatment (rotenone) to eradicate nonnative trout from Silver King Creek and its tributaries between Llewellyn Falls and Silver King Canyon; (2) Neutralize the rotenone downstream of Silver King Canyon to the 30-minute travel time mark near the confluence with Snodgrass Creek using potassium permanganate; and (3) Restock the project area with Paiute cutthroat trout from established donor streams in the upper Silver King Creek watershed (i.e., Fly Valley, Four Mile, Silver King Creek, or possibly Coyote Creek). The proposed stocking of Paiute cutthroat trout will expand the current population size and distribution downstream from Llewellyn Falls to a series of six impassible fish barriers in Silver King Canyon and associated tributaries. These barriers, the two highest being 8 and 10 feet high, would prevent any reinvasion of nonnative trout from areas downstream of the project area and greatly reduce the likelihood of and impacts from any future illegal nonnative species introduction. By expanding the populations and range of the species, the project would also increase the probability of long-term viability and reduce threats from genetic bottlenecking and stochastic events. The proposed project also includes pre-treatment biological surveys and monitoring for amphibians and aquatic macroinvertebrates; placement of signs to inform the public; water quality monitoring (during and post treatment); and post-treatment biological monitoring. The Agencies would apply rotenone to the project area in the summers of 2010 and 2011 (and 2012 if needed). Additional treatments would be scheduled as necessary to ensure complete removal of nonnative trout from the project area. National Environmental Policy Act Compliance The analysis provided in the Final EIR/EIS is intended to accomplish the following: Inform the public of the agencies’ proposed action and alternatives; address public comments received on the Draft EIS/EIR; disclose the direct, indirect, and cumulative VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:07 Apr 08, 2010 Jkt 220001 environmental effects of our proposed action and alternatives; and indicate any irreversible commitment of resources that would result from implementation of the proposed action and alternatives. Additionally, the agencies responded to 21 individual comment letters on the Draft EIS/EIR. A response to each comment received in these letters has been included in the Final EIS/EIR (Appendix I). Additionally, the agencies received over 500 support letters for the project. Public Involvement The agencies issued a notice of intent to prepare an EIS/EIR for the proposed project, on June 2, 2006 (71 FR 32125) and a notice of availability of the Draft EIS/EIR for the proposed project on March 20, 2009 (74 FR 11965). The Draft EIS/EIR analyzed the potential environmental impacts that may result from the proposed action and alternatives. Public Review Copies of the final EIS are available for review (see Availability of Documents). Any comments received will become part of the administrative record and may be available to the public. Before submitting comments that include your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information, you should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. While you may ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. The final EIS includes all comments we received on the draft EIS, and our responses to those comments. No decision will be made on the proposed action until at least 30 days after the Environmental Protection Agency’s publication of their notice in the Federal Register. After the 30-day waiting period, we will complete a Record of Decision that announces the action that will be implemented and discusses all factors leading to the decision. This notice is provided under regulations for implementing NEPA, as amended (40 CFR 1506.6). Dated: April 1, 2010.

Hearing-impaired persons are advised that information on this matter can be obtained by contacting the Commission’s TDD terminal on (202) 205–1810. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on May 30, 2008, based on a complaint filed by John Mezzalingua Associates, Inc. d/b/a PPC, Inc. of East Syracuse, New York (‘‘PPC’’). 73 FR 31145 (May 30, 2008). The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337) in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain coaxial cable connectors and components thereof and products containing the same by reason of infringement of the ‘257, ‘539, ‘194, and ‘076 patents. The complaint named eight respondents. After institution, two respondents were terminated from the investigation based on consent orders, and the following four respondents were found in default: Hanjiang Fei Yu Electronics Equipment Factory of China; Zhongguang Electronics of China; Yangzhou Zhongguang Electronics Co. of China; and Yangzhou Zhongguang Foreign Trade Co. Ltd. of China. The only respondents actively remaining in this investigation are Fu-Ching and Gem. On October 13, 2009, the ALJ issued his final initial determination (‘‘ID’’) finding, based on substantial, reliable, and probative evidence, that the defaulting respondents violated section 337 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain coaxial cable connectors and components thereof and products containing the same by reason of infringement of the ‘257, ‘539, ‘076, and ‘194 patents. The ALJ found that the active respondents have not violated section 337. Based upon petitions for review filed by PPC and the Commission Investigative Attorney, the Commission, on December 14, 2009, determined to review (1) the ALJ’s findings and conclusions relating to whether a violation of section 337 has occurred with respect to the ‘257 patent, including the issues of claim construction, infringement, validity, and domestic industry and (2) the ALJ’s finding that PPC has met the domestic industry requirement for the ‘539 patent. In its review notice, the Commission asked several questions regarding the VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:07 Apr 08, 2010 Jkt 220001 issues on review, and invited the public to comment on the domestic industry requirement under section 337(a)(3)(C), 19 U.S.C. 1337(a)(3)(C). On January 13, 2010, the parties filed opening submissions addressing the issues on review as well as remedy, public interest, and bonding, and on January 27, 2010, the parties filed response submissions. Several non-parties also filed submissions addressing the questions regarding domestic industry in the Commission’s review notice. On January 29, 2010, the law firm of Covington and Burling LLP filed, on behalf of several non-parties, a motion for leave to correct a reply submission, which it had timely filed on January 27, 2010. No one opposed this motion. The Commission has determined to grant this motion. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ALJ’s final ID and all the written submissions, the Commission has determined to vacate in part the ALJ’s finding that complainant PPC established a domestic industry for the ‘539 patent and to issue an order remanding the portion of the investigation relating to the ‘539 patent to the ALJ for further proceedings. The Commission has also determined to modify the ALJ’s constructions of ‘‘fastener means’’ and ‘‘engagement means’’ in the ‘257 patent and consequently reverse the ALJ’s finding that complainant PPC established a domestic industry for the ‘257 patent and his finding that a violation has occurred with respect to the ‘257 patent. The Commission has determined that the defaulting respondents violated section 337 by reason of infringement of the ‘076 and ‘194 patents. The Commission has determined that the active respondents, Fu-Ching and Gem, did not violate section 337. The Commission has determined that the appropriate form of relief is a limited exclusion order and a general exclusion order. The limited exclusion order prohibits the unlicensed entry of coaxial cable connectors and components thereof and products containing the same that infringe the claim of the ‘076 design patent and are manufactured abroad by or on behalf of, or imported by or on behalf of, any of the defaulting respondents. The general exclusion order prohibits the unlicensed entry of coaxial cable connectors and components thereof and products containing the same that infringe claim 1 and/or 2 of the ‘194 patent. The Commission further determined that the public interest factors enumerated in section 337(d) (19 U.S.C. 1337(d)) do not preclude issuance of the limited exclusion order and the general PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18237 exclusion order. Finally, the Commission determined that the amount of bond during the Presidential review period (19 U.S.C. 1337(j)) shall be in the amount of thirteen (13) cents per coaxial connector of the defaulting respondents that is subject to the limited exclusion order or the general exclusion order. No bond is required for any other coaxial cable connector or component thereof or product containing the same covered by the general exclusion order. The Commission’s order was delivered to the President and the United States Trade Representative on the day of its issuance. Finally, the Commission has determined to extend the target date from March 26, 2010, to May 26, 2010, to allow the ALJ time to consider the Commission’s remand instructions. The Commission has instructed the ALJ to make his determination on remand at the earliest practicable time, and to extend the target date of the abovecaptioned investigation as he deems necessary to accommodate the remand proceedings. The authority for the Commission’s determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in sections 210.42–50 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42–50). By order of the Commission. Issued: March 31, 2010. Marilyn R. Abbott, Secretary to the Commission.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation 
on May 30, 2008, based on a complaint filed by John Mezzalingua 
Associates, Inc. d/b/a PPC, Inc. of East Syracuse, New York (``PPC''). 
73 FR 31145 (May 30, 2008). The complaint alleged violations of section 
337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337) in the importation into 
the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the 
United States after importation of certain coaxial cable connectors and 
components thereof and products containing the same by reason of 
infringement of the `257, `539, `194, and `076 patents. The complaint 
named eight respondents. After institution, two respondents were 
terminated from the investigation based on consent orders, and the 
following four respondents were found in default: Hanjiang Fei Yu 
Electronics Equipment Factory of China; Zhongguang Electronics of 
China; Yangzhou Zhongguang Electronics Co. of China; and Yangzhou 
Zhongguang Foreign Trade Co. Ltd. of China. The only respondents 
actively remaining in this investigation are Fu-Ching and Gem.
    On October 13, 2009, the ALJ issued his final initial determination 
(``ID'') finding, based on substantial, reliable, and probative 
evidence, that the defaulting respondents violated section 337 in the 
importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the 
sale within the United States after importation of certain coaxial 
cable connectors and components thereof and products containing the 
same by reason of infringement of the `257, `539, `076, and `194 
patents. The ALJ found that the active respondents have not violated 
section 337. Based upon petitions for review filed by PPC and the 
Commission Investigative Attorney, the Commission, on December 14, 
2009, determined to review (1) the ALJ's findings and conclusions 
relating to whether a violation of section 337 has occurred with 
respect to the `257 patent, including the issues of claim construction, 
infringement, validity, and domestic industry and (2) the ALJ's finding 
that PPC has met the domestic industry requirement for the `539 patent.
    In its review notice, the Commission asked several questions 
regarding the issues on review, and invited the public to comment on 
the domestic industry requirement under section 337(a)(3)(C), 19 U.S.C. 
1337(a)(3)(C). On January 13, 2010, the parties filed opening 
submissions addressing the issues on review as well as remedy, public 
interest, and bonding, and on January 27, 2010, the parties filed 
response submissions. Several non-parties also filed submissions 
addressing the questions regarding domestic industry in the 
Commission's review notice.
    On January 29, 2010, the law firm of Covington and Burling LLP 
filed, on behalf of several non-parties, a motion for leave to correct 
a reply submission, which it had timely filed on January 27, 2010. No 
one opposed this motion. The Commission has determined to grant this 
motion.
    Having examined the record of this investigation, including the 
ALJ's final ID and all the written submissions, the Commission has 
determined to vacate in part the ALJ's finding that complainant PPC 
established a domestic industry for the `539 patent and to issue an 
order remanding the portion of the investigation relating to the `539 
patent to the ALJ for further proceedings. The Commission has also 
determined to modify the ALJ's constructions of ``fastener means'' and 
``engagement means'' in the `257 patent and consequently reverse the 
ALJ's finding that complainant PPC established a domestic industry for 
the `257 patent and his finding that a violation has occurred with 
respect to the `257 patent. The Commission has determined that the 
defaulting respondents violated section 337 by reason of infringement 
of the `076 and `194 patents. The Commission has determined that the 
active respondents, Fu-Ching and Gem, did not violate section 337.
    The Commission has determined that the appropriate form of relief 
is a limited exclusion order and a general exclusion order. The limited 
exclusion order prohibits the unlicensed entry of coaxial cable 
connectors and components thereof and products containing the same that 
infringe the claim of the `076 design patent and are manufactured 
abroad by or on behalf of, or imported by or on behalf of, any of the 
defaulting respondents. The general exclusion order prohibits the 
unlicensed entry of coaxial cable connectors and components thereof and 
products containing the same that infringe claim 1 and/or 2 of the `194 
patent.
    The Commission further determined that the public interest factors 
enumerated in section 337(d) (19 U.S.C. 1337(d)) do not preclude 
issuance of the limited exclusion order and the general exclusion 
order. Finally, the Commission determined that the amount of bond 
during the Presidential review period (19 U.S.C. 1337(j)) shall be in 
the amount of thirteen (13) cents per coaxial connector of the 
defaulting respondents that is subject to the limited exclusion order 
or the general exclusion order. No bond is required for any other 
coaxial cable connector or component thereof or product containing the 
same covered by the general exclusion order. The Commission's order was 
delivered to the President and the United States Trade Representative 
on the day of its issuance.
    Finally, the Commission has determined to extend the target date 
from March 26, 2010, to May 26, 2010, to allow the ALJ time to consider 
the Commission's remand instructions. The Commission has instructed the 
ALJ to make his determination on remand at the earliest practicable 
time, and to extend the target date of the above-captioned 
investigation as he deems necessary to accommodate the remand 
proceedings.
    The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in 
section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and 
in sections 210.42-50 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and 
Procedure (19 CFR 210.42-50).
