DATES: Effective Date: May 26, 2010. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Howard Smith or Rebecca Pandolph, AD/CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–5193 or (202) 482– 3627, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 3, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) issued the preliminary results of the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) covering sales of subject merchandise made by Zhejiang Tianyi Scientific & Educational Equipment Co., Ltd. (‘‘Zhejiang Tianyi’’) for the period January 1, 2009 through June 30, 2009. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 75 FR 9581 (March 3, 2010). As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has 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, regarding ‘‘Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,’’ dated February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by seven days. The current deadline for the final results of this review is currently May 24, 2010. Extension of Time Limits for Final Results Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the final results in PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the final results of a new shipper review to 150 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The Department finds that this new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated because of a recent filing which calls into question the accuracy and reliability of submissions in this review. In particular, the Department needs additional time to consider whether the information was properly filed and to consider any such information. Accordingly, we are extending the time for the completion of the final results of this review by 60 days, from the current due date of May 24, 2010 to July 23, 2010. Dated: May 20, 2010. This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: President Obama has expressly committed to the expansion of advanced technology across the United States as a necessary part of the foundation for long-term economic stability and prosperity.1 The increased availability and use of broadband technology is an integral part of the President’s technology agenda. The National Telecommunications and Information Administration is the President’s principal adviser on domestic and international telecommunications policies pertaining to the Nation’s economic and technological advancement. In order to achieve the technology and broadband goals of the Administration, NTIA is working with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service (RUS), and other stakeholders to develop and implement economic and regulatory policies that foster broadband deployment and adoption. Current and detailed data by U.S. households’ and persons’ usage of and access to broadband is critical to allow policymakers not only to gauge progress made to date, but to identify problem areas. Eight times since the early 1990s, the U.S. Commerce Department’s Census Bureau has collected data based on questions that NTIA sponsored and developed (often in collaboration with the Department’s Economics and Statistics Administration) to provide upto-date information on the extent of the Nation’s Internet adoption and the major reasons why current non-users choose not to adopt. Data have been generated by several demographic and geographic categories and must be weighted and appropriately aggregated before release. These various data, to the extent allowed under federal disclosure laws, are made publicly available for use by the research community to conduct economic, financial, demographic, and other studies. The purpose of the public meeting is to provide an opportunity for the research community to propose, with rationale, the type of Internet usage data that could be usefully collected through 1 See Guiding Principles, ‘‘Innovation in the Economy: Drive Economic Growth and Solve National Problems by Deploying a 21st Century Information Infrastructure,’’ https://www.whitehouse. gov/issues/technology.

These activities have provided essential data for prudent policymaking in this area, including providing the data to the research community whose work provides invaluable inputs for sound policies. NTIA currently collects broadband related data from several sources, as demonstrated in the agency’s October 30, 2009, Broadband Data Transparency Public Workshop.2 Matters to be Considered: The meeting will include a discussion of the following topics, including specific areas of inquiry: 1.
