DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Foreign Agricultural Service Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA. ACTION: Notice. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), certified two petitions (petition nos. 2011002 and 2011022) for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) for shrimp filed under the fiscal year (FY) 2011 program on behalf of shrimp producers in Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas. The petitions were accepted for review by USDA on July 21, 2010. For programmatic purposes, this Federal Register notice combines both FY 2011 shrimp petitions under petition number 2011002. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: All petitions were analyzed by USDA’s Economic Research Service and reviewed by the TAA for Farmers Program Review Committee, comprised of representatives from USDA’s Office of the Chief Economist, Farm Service Agency, Agricultural Marketing Service, and FAS. After a review, the Administrator determined that increased imports of shrimp during January–December 2008 contributed importantly to a greater than 15-percent decline in the quantity of production in 2008, compared to the previous 3-year average. This conforms to the eligibility requirements stipulated in Subtitle C of Title I of the Trade Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107–210). Because both petitions met the program’s eligibility criteria, the Administrator was able to certify them, making shrimp producers in Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas eligible for trade adjustment assistance in FY 2011. Eligible individual shrimp producers in these states, who did not qualify for benefits under the FY 2010 program, may apply for technical training and cash benefits by completing and submitting a written application to their local Farm Service Agency county office by the application deadline of December 23, 2010. After submitting a completed application, producers may receive technical assistance at no cost and cash benefits, if the applicable program eligibility requirements are satisfied. Applicants must complete the technical assistance training under the program in order to be eligible for cash benefits.

No other parties in this proceeding submitted comments on the Department’s final margin calculations. Based upon our analysis of the comments and allegations of ministerial errors, we made changes to the margin calculation for Nha Trang Seafoods and the Minh Phu Group, and corrected Seaprodex Minh Hai’s separate rate status. Furthermore, as a result of correcting the errors in the margin calculations for Nha Trang Seafoods and the Minh Phu Group, the margin for the companies granted separate-rate status were also revised because the margin for those companies were derived from Nha Trang Seafoods’ and the Minh Phu Group’s margins. Scope of the Antidumping Duty Order The scope of this order includes certain warmwater shrimp and prawns, whether frozen, wild-caught (ocean harvested) or farm-raised (produced by aquaculture), head-on or head-off, shellon or peeled, tail-on or tail-off, 3535 ‘‘Tails’’ in this context means the tail fan, which includes the telson and the uropods. deveined or not deveined, cooked or raw, or otherwise processed in frozen form.

The products described above may be processed from any species of warmwater shrimp and prawns. Warmwater shrimp and prawns are generally classified in, but are not limited to, the Penaeidae family. Some examples of the farmed and wild-caught warmwater species include, but are not limited to, whiteleg shrimp (Penaeus vannemei), banana prawn (Penaeus merguiensis), fleshy prawn (Penaeus chinensis), giant river prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), redspotted E:\FR\FM\04OCN1.SGM 04OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The importation and interstate movement of garbage is regulated by 
the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service under 7 CFR 330.400 and 
9 CFR 94.5 in order to protect against the introduction into and 
dissemination within the United States of plant and animal pests and 
diseases.
    On January 19, 2010, we published in the Federal Register (75 FR 
2845-2846, Docket No. APHIS-2006-0172) a notice \1\ in which we 
announced the availability, for public review and comment, of an 
environmental assessment documenting our review and analysis of the 
environmental impacts associated with, and alternatives to, the 
movement of palletized or containerized baled municipal solid waste to 
three existing ports on the Columbia River via barge and the transfer 
and transportation of the waste via truck or rail to the landfill.

received and our responses to the comments, and the finding of no 
significant impact, go to https://www.regulations.gov/fdmspublic/component/main?main=DocketDetail&d=APHIS-2006-0172.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We solicited comments on the environmental assessment for 30 days 
ending on February 18, 2010. We received 37 comments by that date. The 
commenters raised several issues, including the potential for invasive 
species/pest introductions, impacts on air and water quality, impacts 
on fish and wildlife habitat, impacts on existing infrastructure 
(highway, rail, and barge), increased traffic at associated ports, and 
the adequacy of the environmental assessment's analysis of cumulative 
effects.
    On May 27, 2010, we published in the Federal Register (75 FR 29706, 
Docket No. APHIS-2006-0172) a notice announcing the availability of a 
final environmental assessment and our finding of no significant impact 
(FONSI).
    Although the agency had requested public comment on the 
environmental assessment published on January 19, 2010, with comments 
due on February 18, 2010, we received new information regarding 
potential impacts from that action after the FONSI had been issued. 
Because APHIS had not previously had the opportunity to evaluate this 
new information, we have decided to withdraw the FONSI effective 
immediately and reevaluate the potential environmental impacts that may 
be associated with this action.
