Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 72 / Thursday, April 14, 2011 / Notices American Spring Wire Corporation, Kankakee, Illinois meet the criteria as Suppliers for secondary worker certification. Criterion I has been met because a significant number or proportion of workers in the workers’ firm were totally or partially separated, or were threatened with separation. Criterion II has been met because workers of subject firm produced and sold spring wire for a firm that employed a worker group eligible to apply for TAA and the spring wire was related to the article that was the basis for the TAA certification. Criterion III has been met because the loss of business by subject firm with the aforementioned firm, with respect to spring wire, contributed importantly to worker separations, or threat of separations, at the Kankakee, Illinois facility. Conclusion After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I determine that workers and former workers of subject firm, who are engaged in employment related to the supply of spring wire, meet the worker group certification criteria under Section 222(c) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(c). In accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2273, I make the following certification: All workers of American Spring Wire Corporation, Kankakee, Illinois, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after December 17, 2008, through two years from the date of this revised 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. Signed in Washington, DC, this 6th day of April, 2011. Del Min Amy Chen, Certifying Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.

Telephone (202) 707–7125; Telefax (202) 707–4435. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 25, 2010, the Copyright Office adopted an interim regulation governing the mandatory deposit of published electronic works available only on-line. 75 FR 3863 (January 25, 2010). This regulation permits the Copyright Office to acquire, on behalf of the Library of Congress, electronic works published only online and available exclusively in electronic formats. Prior to this regulation, all online-only works were exempt from the mandatory deposit provisions of the copyright law. Under the interim regulation, certain works available only online, i.e., electronic serials, are now subject to the mandatory deposit requirement but only to the extent the Copyright Office issues a demand notice for the works. Once the Copyright Office and the Library of Congress have gained experience with ingesting digital works, additional categories of electronic works published only online will be added to the list. On September 1, 2010, the Copyright Office, on behalf of the Library of Congress, issued its first mandatory deposit notice for works published only online. To date, 30 publishers have received demand notices for a total of 85 online-only titles. These 30 publishers SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21043 represent a cross section of the community, including large commercial publishers, small commercial publishers, academic institutions, and open access as well as subscription based titles. The online-only deposit amendment was issued as an ‘‘interim’’ regulation because the Copyright Office foresaw that ‘‘the experience of issuing and responding to demands for online–only works will raise additional issues that should be considered before the regulation becomes final, e.g., the technical details of how an online–only work should be transmitted to the Copyright Office.’’ 75 FR 3864 (January 25, 2010). The experience of the Copyright Office thus far is that every submission has been unique. Although suggested submission instructions were provided, no two publishers have transmitted, packaged or formatted their files in the same manner. Needless to say this has created tremendous technical challenges not only for the Library of Congress but also for the publishers responding to the demand notices. In response to these multiple transmission, packaging, and formatting issues, the Copyright Office will be hosting a public working session to discuss the packaging and submission processes to fulfill a mandatory deposit demand for an electronic work. The goal is to identify a maximum of five possible packaging standards, transmission protocols, and file structures that will work for the publishing community as well as for the Office and the Library. The participants should represent all segments of the serial publishing community, such as publishers, aggregators, abstract and indexing services, journal hosting services, software developers, file conversion services, file archiving services, and organizations focusing on library and electronic information standards. We encourage these groups to send representatives to the meeting to foster a well-informed discussion of the issues. Limits on participation: Due to space constraints, we regret that we cannot accommodate more than two representatives per organization. We ask that one of these representatives be well-versed in your organization’s technical and workflow requirements related to content production, file formats, file naming conventions, metadata, file transmission, and file packaging guidelines.

AGENCY: In accordance with Section 610(b)(2) of the Millennium Challenge Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108–199, Division D), the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) is publishing a summary and the complete text of the Millennium Challenge Compact between the United States of America, acting through the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and the Republic of Malawi. Representatives of the United States Government and the Republic of Malawi executed the Compact documents on April 7, 2011. SUMMARY: Dated: April 8, 2011. Henry Pitney, Deputy General Counsel, Millennium Challenge Corporation. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Summary of Millennium Challenge Compact With the Republic of Malawi The five-year Millennium Challenge Compact with the Republic of Malawi will provide up to $350.7 million to reduce poverty through economic growth (the ‘‘Compact’’). The Compact focuses on revitalization of the Malawi power sector, and is intended to: (i) Increase investment and employment income by raising the profitability and productivity of enterprises; (ii) expand access to electricity for the Malawian people and businesses; and (iii) improve delivery of social services. 18:34 Apr 13, 2011 To advance the Compact goal of reducing poverty through economic growth, the Compact will fund a Power Sector Revitalization Project (the ‘‘Project’’) that aims to improve the availability, reliability, and quality of the power supply by: (i) Increasing the throughput capacity and stability of the national electricity grid; (ii) increase efficiency of hydropower generation; and (iii) create an enabling environment for future expansion by strengthening sector institutions and enhancing regulation and governance of the sector. The Project consists of two activities (i) the Infrastructure Development Activity and (ii) the Power Sector Reform Activity (the ‘‘Activities’’). A. Infrastructure Development Activity ($283 Million) MILLENNIUM CHALLENGE CORPORATION VerDate Mar<15>2010 1. Project Overview and Activity Descriptions Jkt 223001 The Infrastructure Development Activity focuses on the rehabilitation, upgrade and modernization of those generation, transmission and distribution assets of the Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (‘‘ESCOM’’) in most urgent need of repair, in order to improve the capability of the transmission system and increase the efficiency and sustainability of hydropower generation. Because maintaining the current generation assets and expanding generation capacity are necessary to ensure realization of the full benefits of the Infrastructure Development Activity, the Government of Malawi (‘‘GOM’’) is committing to maintain current generation assets, and to invest in new generation by completing the construction of the 64 MW Kapichira II hydropower plant during the term of the Compact. By the end of the Compact term, MCC expects that the Infrastructure Development Activity will result in increases in generation capacity (from 286 MW to 356 MW), network throughput (from 260 MW to 410 MW) and distribution capability (from 868 megavolt amperes (MVA) to 1,118 MVA), as well as a reduction of technical losses of the power system (from 20–25% to 18%). The Infrastructure Development Activity consists of the following four sub-activities: (a) Nkula A Rehabilitation SubActivity. This sub-activity will provide funding to rehabilitate and modernize Malawi’s oldest major hydropower plant Nkula A—at the Nkula Falls Hydroelectric plant. The objective of this proposed investment is to improve the availability of power in Malawi by reducing outages caused by the PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 condition of assets, and maximizing the power output of generators. The rehabilitation is necessary to assist ESCOM avoid the good probability that at least a portion, if not all, of the plant could fail by the end of the Compact without MCC’s investment. Such a loss in generation output would have a significant adverse affect on the Malawi economy, and severely compromise the potential utilization and returns on MCC’s investment in the transmission and distribution upgrade and rehabilitation. (b) Transmission Network Upgrade Sub-Activity. This sub-activity will upgrade the backbone of the transmission network in order to: (i) Improve the quality and reliability of supply in the northern, central and southern regions of the country; (ii) increase the capacity to move power from the south, where 98 percent of Malawi’s power is generated, to the central and northern regions; (iii) reduce technical losses on transmission lines; and (iv) provide a secure transmission link between the southern and central regions. (c) Transmission and Distribution Upgrade, Expansion, and Rehabilitation Sub-Activity. This sub-activity includes investments in the southern, central, and northern power systems of the Malawi power network in order to: (i) Upgrade existing network connections (33-kilovolt (kV), 11kV); (ii) extend existing substations; (iii) upgrade transformers in existing substations; (iv) develop new substations; (v) install and/ or repair improved protection systems; (vi) provide new network extensions and connections; and (vii) install a new system control and data acquisition system. (d) Environment and Natural Resource Management (ENRM) SubActivity. The objective of the ENRM sub-activity is to help the GOM and other relevant stakeholders address the growing problems of aquatic weed infestation and excessive sedimentation in the Shire River, which cause costly disruptions to downstream power plant operations. The ENRM sub-activity intends to address these issues by: (i) Mitigating the impact of the weeds and sedimentation by providing dredgers and weed-harvesting equipment for use at existing hydropower plants and the Liwonde Barrage, and expanding use of upstream biological control measures; and (ii) developing and implementing an Environmental and Natural Resource Management Action Plan (ENRMAP) that sets the course for an improved understanding and action on environmental, social (including E:\FR\FM\14APN1.SGM 14APN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 25, 2010, the Copyright Office 
adopted an interim regulation governing the mandatory deposit of 
published electronic works available only on-line. 75 FR 3863 (January 
25, 2010). This regulation permits the Copyright Office to acquire, on 
behalf of the Library of Congress, electronic works published only 
online and available exclusively in electronic formats. Prior to this 
regulation, all online-only works were exempt from the mandatory 
deposit provisions of the copyright law.
    Under the interim regulation, certain works available only online, 
i.e., electronic serials, are now subject to the mandatory deposit 
requirement but only to the extent the Copyright Office issues a demand 
notice for the works. Once the Copyright Office and the Library of 
Congress have gained experience with ingesting digital works, 
additional categories of electronic works published only online will be 
added to the list.
    On September 1, 2010, the Copyright Office, on behalf of the 
Library of Congress, issued its first mandatory deposit notice for 
works published only online. To date, 30 publishers have received 
demand notices for a total of 85 online-only titles. These 30 
publishers represent a cross section of the community, including large 
commercial publishers, small commercial publishers, academic 
institutions, and open access as well as subscription based titles.
    The online-only deposit amendment was issued as an ``interim'' 
regulation because the Copyright Office foresaw that ``the experience 
of issuing and responding to demands for online-only works will raise 
additional issues that should be considered before the regulation 
becomes final, e.g., the technical details of how an online-only work 
should be transmitted to the Copyright Office.'' 75 FR 3864 (January 
25, 2010). The experience of the Copyright Office thus far is that 
every submission has been unique. Although suggested submission 
instructions were provided, no two publishers have transmitted, 
packaged or formatted their files in the same manner. Needless to say 
this has created tremendous technical challenges not only for the 
Library of Congress but also for the publishers responding to the 
demand notices.
    In response to these multiple transmission, packaging, and 
formatting issues, the Copyright Office will be hosting a public 
working session to discuss the packaging and submission processes to 
fulfill a mandatory deposit demand for an electronic work. The goal is 
to identify a maximum of five possible packaging standards, 
transmission protocols, and file structures that will work for the 
publishing community as well as for the Office and the Library. The 
participants should represent all segments of the serial publishing 
community, such as publishers, aggregators, abstract and indexing 
services, journal hosting services, software developers, file 
conversion services, file archiving services, and organizations 
focusing on library and electronic information standards. We encourage 
these groups to send representatives to the meeting to foster a well-
informed discussion of the issues.

production, file formats, file naming conventions, metadata, file
