Subsections (b)–(d) of section 1205 set out procedures and requirements that the Commission must follow in making its recommendations. On August 9, 2010, the Commission transmitted to the President a report containing its recommendations regarding modifications to the HTS for certain footwear that was the subject of its investigation No. 1205–8 (USITC Publication 4178, August 2010). A copy of that report is available on the Commission’s Web site at http:// www.usitc.gov/tariff_affairs/ hts_documents/1205– 8FINALREPORTCOMBINED.pdf. Pursuant to section 1206 of the 1988 Act, the President has submitted a report containing those recommendations to the House Committee on Ways and Means and Senate Committee on Finance for a 60day layover period. The Commission noted in that report that it would keep the investigation open to allow it to make further recommendations. On November 8, 2010, the Commission received a letter from the USTR requesting that the Commission make certain further recommendations concerning the footwear that was the subject of recommendations in the Commission’s August 2010 report. More specifically, the USTR requested that the Commission, consistent with the provisions of section 1205(d)— (1) Make further recommendations, based on new submissions to be filed by interested parties relating to entries liquidated prior to the Commission’s initiation of this investigation on April 13, 2010, on the appropriateness of inserting new tariff lines under subheadings 6404.11 and 6404.19, in addition to those already recommended by the Commission in its August 2010 report; and (2) Provide a further recommendation regarding whether the information previously provided to the Commission in investigation No. 1205–8 by the Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America (FDRA) and by Pro Line Manufacturing Company (Pro Line), covering entries liquidated prior to the initiation of the Commission’s investigation on April 13, 2010, provides adequate support for their requests to add tariff lines under subheadings 6402.91.90, 6402.99.40, and 6401.99.
