Therefore, a statement under section 202 of the Act is not required. Energy Effects This proposed directive has been reviewed under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. It has been determined that this proposed directive does not constitute a significant energy action as defined in the Executive Order. Controlling Paperwork Burdens on the Public This proposed directive does not contain any additional record keeping or reporting requirements or other information collection requirements as defined in 5 CFR part 1320 that are not already required by law or not already approved for use, and therefore, imposes no additional paperwork burden on the public. Accordingly, the review provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) and its implementing regulations at 5 CFR part 1320 do not apply. Dated: May 27, 2011.

Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: Alaska Pacific Halibut Fisheries: Charter Recordkeeping. OMB Control Number: 0648–0575. Form Number(s): NA. Type of Request: Regular submission (extension of a current information collection). Number of Respondents: 1,909. Average Hours per Response: 4 minutes. Burden Hours: 2,415. Needs and Uses: This request is for an extension of a currently approved information collection. Pacific halibut is an unusual resource in that halibut management in both state VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:49 Jun 02, 2011 Jkt 223001 and federal waters is an international and federal responsibility under the North Pacific Halibut Act of 1982. Annual catch quotas are determined by the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC), and federal responsibility for halibut management extends to halibut stocks and fishing activity within State of Alaska waters. In order to manage halibut effectively, international and federal managers need information on halibut fishing effort and harvest by all user groups, including the guided sport charter sector of the fishery. In order to minimize the recordkeeping and reporting burden on guided charter operations, federal and international managers depend on fishing activity and harvest information collected by the State of Alaska through its charter logbook program. Federal regulations at 50 CFR 300.65 require charter vessel operators fishing in IPHC Areas 2C and 3A to comply with the State of Alaska logbook reporting requirements. The State of Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) Division of Sport Fish initiated a mandatory logbook program for charter vessels in 1998 requiring annual registration of sport fishing guides and businesses and logbook reporting. The logbook and registration program was intended to provide information on actual participation and harvest by individual charter vessels and businesses in various regions of the state. ADF&G issues charter logbooks to licensed businesses only and also provides operators with registration stickers and statistical area maps. A schedule of logbook due dates is printed inside the front cover of each logbook. NMFS and ADF&G coordinated closely in the development of this information collection to use the existing ADF&G logbook to record information necessary for the monitoring and enforcement of the charter vessel angler daily catch limit of halibut, so that a separate federal logbook system would not be necessary. This approach reduces burden to both the charter vessel industry, and federal and state management agencies. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: On occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. OMB Desk Officer: OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On April 19, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated the countervailing duty investigation of bottom mount combination refrigeratorfreezers from the Republic of Korea. See Bottom Mount Combination Refrigerator-Freezers From the Republic of Korea: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 76 FR 23298 (April 26, 2011). Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than June 23, 2011. Postponement of Due Date for the Preliminary Determination Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation. However, the Department may postpone making the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which the administering authority initiated the investigation if, among other reasons, the petitioner makes a timely request for an extension pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act. In the instant investigation, the petitioner, Whirlpool Corporation, made a timely request on May 9, 2011, requesting a postponement of the preliminary countervailing duty determination to 130 days from the initiation date. See 19 CFR 351.205(e) and the petitioner’s May 9, 2011, letter requesting postponement of the preliminary determination, which is available in the Central Records Unit, Room 7046 in the Department’s main building. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Department finds no compelling reason to deny the request. Therefore, pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, we are extending the due date for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated, i.e., to August 27, 2011. However, August 27, 2011 falls on a Saturday. It is the Department’s long-standing practice to make a determination on the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the Department will make its preliminary determination on August 29, 2011, the first business day after August 27, 2011. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(l). Dated: May 26, 2011. Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
