SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The subject modification to Permit No. 1596–02, issued on July 29, 2009 (74 FR 38585), is requested under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR 222– 226). Permit No. 1596–02 authorizes the SWFSC to capture, measure, weigh, blood and tissue sample, photograph, flipper and PIT tag, fat biopsy, ultrasound, satellite tag, and attach a VHF/TDR/sonic tag/video system, VHR/ TDR/sonic tag/GPS unit, or VHR/TDR/ sonic tag/GPS/video camera system to leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea) sea turtles during research activities conducted off the western coast of the continental United States. Animals with the video camera system may be reapproached to collect the unit and then sampled, tagged, and have another video camera unit attached. The SWFSC requests authorization to use a direct tag attachment method in place of previously authorized harness attachments. These tags would provide valuable information on leatherback movements and behavior in the Pacific Ocean between their foraging areas and nesting beaches. No increase in the number of animals taken is requested. The research would continue to occur in waters off the coast of the western United States through February 1, 2012.

The requested modification has been granted under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR parts 222–226).

The modification authorizes the permit holder to use satellite telemetry to assess habitat use of sea turtles and study whether relocation distances for sea turtles captured in relocation trawlers are appropriate. The permit holder may attach transmitters to up to 12 green sea turtles captured by their project by research nets in St. Joseph Bay, Apalachicola Bay, and St. Andrews Bay and attach transmitters to up to 25 green, hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata), Kemp’s ridley, and loggerhead sea turtles (any combination) already legally captured by relocation trawlers in the St. Andrews Bay area. These animals may also be flipper and PIT tagged, measured, photographed, tissue sampled and weighed before release. The permit is valid through April 30, 2013. Issuance of this modification, as required by the ESA was based on a finding that such permit (1) was applied for in good faith, (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered or threatened species, and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 15:00 May 11, 2010 Jkt 220001 On January 7, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the countervailing duty order on carbazole violet pigment 23 (CVP–23) from India. See Carbazole Violet Pigment 23 from India: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 977 (January 7, 2010). This administrative review covers the period January 1, 2007 through December 31, 2007. This review covers one producer/exporter of the subject merchandise to the United States, Alpanil Industries Ltd. (Alpanil). On February 12, 2010, the Department issued a memorandum revising all case deadlines. As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5 through February 12, 2010. See Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm, dated February 12, 2010, a public document on file in the Department’s Central Records Unit (CRU) in Room 1117 of the main Department building. Thus, all deadlines in all proceedings were extended by seven days. Consequently, the deadline for the final results of this review was revised from May 7, 2010 to May 14, 2010. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE VerDate Mar<15>2010 Background Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1), the Department shall issue final results in an administrative review of a countervailing duty order within 120 days after the date on which notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within the time limits, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) allow the Department to extend the 120–day period up to 180 days. Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we determine that it is not practicable to complete the results of this review within the original time limit. The Department had to request additional information from Alpanil after the PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 preliminary results. Consequently, the Department needs additional time to analyze this information and to consider comments filed by the parties. In accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department has decided to extend the time limit for the final results from 120 days to 145 days; the final results will now be due no later than June 8, 2010. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: May 6, 2010. John M.
