SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On February 12, 2010, the Department of Labor (Department) published in the Federal Register a Final Rule governing the Temporary Agricultural Employment of H–2A Aliens in the United States (the 2010 Final Rule). The 2010 Final Rule amended the regulations governing the labor certification process for the temporary agricultural employment of H–2A aliens in the United States, codified at 20 CFR part 655, subpart B, and the enforcement of employer obligations under the H–2A program, codified at 29 CFR part 501. The 2010 Final Rule became effective on March 15, 2010. The regulations promulgated by the 2010 Final Rule include a requirement that all job orders filed in connection with H–2A applications be posted by the Certifying Officer on a national, publicly accessible electronic job registry until the end of 50 percent of the contract period. As discussed in the preamble to the 2010 Final Rule, requiring the posting of job orders in a national job registry will improve the transparency of agricultural jobs available to U.S. workers and provide an unprecedented level of public access to one of the most frequently requested types of records maintained by the Department. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES II. Information on Activation of the National Job Registry In the 2010 Final Rule, the Department stated it would inform the public through a notice in the Federal Register when the job registry becomes operational. The Department is hereby announcing that the job registry will be operational on July 8, 2010. Public access to the job registry will be available through the OFLC iCERT Visa Portal System at http://icert.doleta.gov. On and after July 8, 2010, the job registry will be available for members of the public to search and retrieve H–2A job orders filed in connection with an Application for Temporary Employment Certification, ETA Form 9142, and accepted by the Department for recruitment of domestic workers under the 2010 Final Rule. This new Webbased tool will provide an VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:02 Jun 30, 2010 Jkt 220001 unprecedented level of public access to H–2A job orders and will allow the Department to fulfill its regulatory obligations under the H–2A program and maintain its commitment to the principles of Open Government. All information placed on the job registry will be easily accessible through the Internet in an electronic format permitting the highest possible level of granularity and will contain public data collected from the primary source, i.e., the employer/applicant. The Department will not disclose on the job registry information or data subject to privacy, security, or privilege limitations. The Department will place each job order on the registry promptly after accepting the employer’s application. Where the Department accepts a modification to the originally accepted job order (e.g., a change in the start date), the Department will promptly post the modified job order on the registry in place of the original job order, noting that the job order has been modified. Upon acceptance and placement on the job registry, each job order will be immediately available to the public through a single entry point—the iCERT Visa Portal System. The public will not be required to register on the iCERT system to access the job registry. The job registry will provide an interactive state map from the main iCERT Visa Portal homepage allowing the public to quickly search for any active job order(s) posted on the registry within the last 30 calendar days. Job orders older than 30 days will be accessible to the public through registry search engines. The job order information will be searchable along a series of common data points such as case number, employer name, area of intended employment, work contract period, job title, and primary crop or agricultural activity. All search results will be displayed in a table format with sortable column headers. The public will be able to view a summary of the job order as well as download a copy of the entire job order and all attachments in Adobe PDF format. III. Help Desk OFLC has implemented a dedicated Help Desk Unit at the CNPC to serve as a resource to the public on program issues related to job orders filed in connection with an Application for Temporary Employment Certification, ETA Form 9142, under the H–2A program.

The license provides, among other things, that the facility is subject to all rules, regulations, and orders of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) now or hereafter in effect. The facility consists of one pressurized-water reactor located in Ottawa County, Ohio. 2.0 Request/Action Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) part 26, ‘‘Fitness for duty programs,’’ Section 26.205(d)(3), ‘‘Work hour controls,’’ PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38147 requires licensees to ensure that individuals have, at a minimum, the number of days off as specified in 10 CFR 26.205(d)(3). It is from portions of 10 CFR 26.205(d)(3) that DBNPS now seeks a one-time exemption. By letter dated May 28, 2010, as supplemented by electronic correspondence dated June 9, June 11, and June 16, 2010, the licensee requested a one-time exemption in accordance with 10 CFR 26.9, ‘‘Specific exemptions.’’ The regulation at 10 CFR 26.205(d)(4) and (d)(5) permit the use of less restrictive hour limitations during the first 60 days of a unit outage, in lieu if the requirements of 10 CFR 26.205(d)(3). The licensee has requested a one-time exemption to allow the use of the less restrictive hour limitations described in 10 CFR 26.205(d)(4) and (d)(5). The exemption would apply to operations (who also comprise of the fire brigade), maintenance, security, chemistry and radiation protection personnel as defined in 10 CFR 26.4(a)(1) through (a)(5). Being granted this one-time exemption would allow the licensee to complete work activities to support the current, extended DBNPS refueling outage. 3.0 Discussion of Part 26 Exemption From Certain Work Hour Control Requirements Pursuant to 10 CFR 26.9, the Commission may, upon application by any interested person or upon its own initiative, grant exemptions from the requirements of 10 CFR part 26 when the exemptions are authorized by law, and will not endanger life or property or the common defense and security, and are otherwise in the public interest. The approval of this exemption, as noted above, would allow the licensee to use the work hour limitations as described in 10 CFR 26.205(d)(4) and (d)(5), in lieu if the requirements of 10 CFR 26.205(d)(3). As stated above, 10 CFR 26.9 allows the NRC to grant exemptions from the requirements of 10 CFR 26. The NRC staff has determined that granting of the licensee’s proposed exemption would not result in a violation of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, or the Commission’s regulations. Therefore, the exemption is authorized by law. Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station Exemption Request The licensee provided detailed information in the enclosure of its May 28, 2010 letter, as supplemented by electronic correspondence dated June 9, June 11, and June 16, 2010, requesting an exemption. Specifically, the licensee entered the current outage on February E:\FR\FM\01JYN1.SGM 01JYN1

Pittsburgh Coatings, Inc., Ambridge, PA; Notice of Revised 
Determination on Reconsideration

    By application dated May 21, 2010, the Department of Labor 
(Department) received a request for administrative reconsideration of 
the Department's Notice of negative determination regarding workers' 
eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and 
Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) applicable to workers 
and former workers of the subject firm. The determination was issued on 
April 22, 2010. The Department's notice of determination was published 
in the Federal Register on May 20, 2010 (75 FR 28301). The workers were 
engaged in employment related to the production of painted and coated 
structural steel.
    The negative determination was based on the Department's findings 
that increased imports did not contribute importantly to worker 
separations at the subject firm and that no shift in production to a 
foreign country occurred.
    In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner supplied 
additional information regarding the customers of the subject firm to 
supplement what had been gathered during the initial investigation.
    As a result of new and additional information obtained during the 
reconsideration investigation, the

[[Page 38147]]

Department has determined that, during the relevant period, a major 
declining customer of the subject firm had increased its imports of 
articles like or directly competitive with the painted and coated 
structural steel produced by the subject firm.
    The Department has also determined that the increased imports 
contributed importantly to worker group separations and subject firm 
sales and/or production declines.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I determine that workers of Pittsburgh Coatings, Inc., 
Ambridge, Pennsylvania, who are engaged in employment related to the 
production of coated and painted structural steel, meet the worker 
group certification criteria under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 
2272(a). In accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2273, I 
make the following certification:

    All workers of Pittsburgh Coatings, Inc., Ambridge, 
Pennsylvania, who became totally or partially separated from 
employment on or after November 23, 2008, through two years from the 
date of this certification, and all workers in the group threatened 
with total or partial separation from employment on date of 
certification through two years from the date of certification, are 
eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title 
II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.
