Download as PDF 69401 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 218 / Friday, November 12, 2010 / Notices The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the 2007–2008 deferred and 2008– 2009 administrative reviews of folding metal tables and chairs from the PRC within the 120-day time limit due to the Department’s adoption of a new labor valuation methodology for the final results. We find that additional time is needed to complete these final results. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the final results of this review, which is currently due on November 11, 2010, by 60 days to January 10, 2011, which is the 180th day after publication of the preliminary results. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: November 5, 2010. Susan H. Kuhbach, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul Marx, (301) 713–2390. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Sections 312(b)–(e) of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1861a(b) through (e)) generally authorizes fishing capacity reduction programs. In particular, section 312(d) authorizes industry fee systems for repaying reduction loans which finance reduction program costs. Subpart L of 50 CFR part 600 is the framework rule generally implementing section 312(b)–(e). Sections 1111 and 1112 of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 (46 App. U.S.C. 1279f and 1279g) generally authorizes reduction loans. Enacted on December 8, 2004, section 219, Title II, of FY 2005 Appropriations Act, Public Law 104–447 (Act) authorizes a fishing capacity reduction program implementing capacity reduction plans submitted to NMFS by catcher processor subsectors of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (‘‘BSAI’’) non-pollock groundfish fishery (‘‘reduction fishery’’) as set forth in the Act. The longline catcher processor subsector (the ‘‘Longline Subsector’’) is among the catcher processor subsectors eligible to submit to NMFS a capacity reduction plan under the terms of the Act. The longline subsector non-pollock groundfish reduction program’s objective was to reduce the number of vessels and permits endorsed for longline subsector of the non-pollock groundfish fishery. All post-reduction fish landings from the reduction fishery are subject to the longline subsector non-pollock groundfish program’s fee. NMFS proposed the implementing notice on August 11, 2006 (71 FR 46364), and published the final notice on September 29, 2006 (71 FR 57696). NMFS allocated the $35,000,000 reduction loan to the reduction fishery and is repayable by fees from the fishery. NMFS published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2007 (72 FR 54219), the final rule to implement the industry fee system for repaying the non-pollock groundfish program’s reduction loan and established October 24, 2007, as the effective date when fee collection and loan repayment began. The regulations implementing the program are located at § 600.1012 of 50 CFR part 600’s subpart M. NMFS published in the Federal Register on November 2, 2009 (74 FR 56592), a notice to decrease the fee rate to $0.016 per pound, effective January 1, 2010. II. Purpose The purpose of this notice is to adjust, in accordance with the framework rule’s § 600.1013(b), the fee rate for the reduction fishery. Section 600.1013(b) directs NMFS to recalculate the fee rate that will be reasonably necessary to ensure reduction loan repayment within the specified 30 year term. NMFS has determined for the reduction fishery that the current fee rate of $0.016 per pound is more than needed to service the loan. Therefore, NMFS is decreasing the fee rate to $0.015 per pound which NMFS has determined is sufficient to ensure timely loan repayment. Subsector members may continue to use Pay.gov to disburse collected fee deposits at: http://www.pay.gov/paygov/ . Please visit the NMFS Web site for additional information at: http://www. nmfs.noaa.gov/mb/financial_services/ buyback.htm. III. Notice The new fee rate for the Non-Pollock Groundfish fishery will begin on January 1, 2011. From and after this date, all subsector members paying fees on the non-pollock groundfish fishery shall begin paying non-pollock groundfish fishery program fees at the revised rate. Fee collection and submission shall follow previously established methods in § 600.1013 of the framework rule and in the final fee rule published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2007 (72 FR 54219). The revised fee rate applicable to the non-pollock groundfish program’s reduction fishery is as follows: Fishery Current fee rate Non-Pollock Groundfish ................................................................................................. $0.016 per pound ...............

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Sections 312(b)-(e) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation 
and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1861a(b) through (e)) generally 
authorizes fishing capacity reduction programs. In particular, section 
312(d) authorizes industry fee systems for repaying reduction loans 
which finance reduction program costs.
    Subpart L of 50 CFR part 600 is the framework rule generally 
implementing section 312(b)-(e).
    Sections 1111 and 1112 of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 (46 App. 
U.S.C. 1279f and 1279g) generally authorizes reduction loans.
    Enacted on December 8, 2004, section 219, Title II, of FY 2005 
Appropriations Act, Public Law 104-447 (Act) authorizes a fishing 
capacity reduction program implementing capacity reduction plans 
submitted to NMFS by catcher processor subsectors of the Bering Sea and 
Aleutian Islands (``BSAI'') non-pollock groundfish fishery (``reduction 
fishery'') as set forth in the Act.
    The longline catcher processor subsector (the ``Longline 
Subsector'') is among the catcher processor subsectors eligible to 
submit to NMFS a capacity reduction plan under the terms of the Act.
    The longline subsector non-pollock groundfish reduction program's 
objective was to reduce the number of vessels and permits endorsed for 
longline subsector of the non-pollock groundfish fishery.
    All post-reduction fish landings from the reduction fishery are 
subject to the longline subsector non-pollock groundfish program's fee.
    NMFS proposed the implementing notice on August 11, 2006 (71 FR 
46364), and published the final notice on September 29, 2006 (71 FR 
57696).
    NMFS allocated the $35,000,000 reduction loan to the reduction 
fishery and is repayable by fees from the fishery.
    NMFS published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2007 (72 FR 
54219), the final rule to implement the industry fee system for 
repaying the non-pollock groundfish program's reduction loan and 
established October 24, 2007, as the effective date when fee collection 
and loan repayment began. The regulations implementing the program are 
located at Sec.  600.1012 of 50 CFR part 600's subpart M.

II. Purpose

    The purpose of this notice is to adjust, in accordance with the 
framework rule's Sec.  600.1013(b), the fee rate for the reduction 
fishery. Section 600.1013(b) directs NMFS to recalculate the fee rate 
that will be reasonably necessary to ensure reduction loan repayment 
within the specified 30 year term.
    NMFS has determined for the reduction fishery that the current fee 
rate of $0.016 per pound is more than needed to service the loan. 
Therefore, NMFS is decreasing the fee rate to $0.015 per pound which 
NMFS has determined is sufficient to ensure timely loan repayment.
