The company reported that the workers from REC Advanced Silicon Materials, LLC, including on-site leased workers from Spherion Recruiting and Staffing, Silver Bow, Montana (TA–W– 82,458A) have been separated or threatened with separation due to the same conditions that led to certification of the workers at the Moses Lake, Washington facility.

This list is also posted on the OMB Web site at http:// www.whitehouse.gov/omb. The list of the ‘‘Federal Entities’’ has been updated to reflect: (1) The reestablishment of the Administrative Conference of the United States in March 2010 (ACUS had not received funding between 1995 and 2009); (2) the establishment of the Financial Stability Oversight Council in Public Law 111– 203 (Section 111); (3)the establishment of the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council in Public Law 112–141 (Section 1603); and (4) the establishment of the Valles Caldera Trust in Public Law 106– 248.

In addition, Public Law 111–203 amended Section 8G(a)(4), which is the provision of the IG Act that defines the term ‘‘head of the designated Federal entity.’’ As an initial matter, Congress amended the introductory text of Section 8G(a)(4) to state that—in the case of boards and commissions—‘‘the term ‘head of the designated Federal entity’ means the board or commission of the designated Federal entity.’’ As a result of this amendment, Section 8G(a)(4) sets forth three main categories of ‘‘designated Federal entities’’ with respect to who is the ‘‘head’’ of the entity: the term ‘‘head of the designated Federal entity’’ means (1) ‘‘the board or commission of the designated Federal entity’’; (2) ‘‘in the event the designated Federal entity does not have a board or commission, any person or persons designated by statute as the head of a designated Federal entity’’; and (3) ‘‘if no such designation exists, the chief policymaking officer or board of a designated Federal entity as identified in the list published pursuant to subsection (h)(1) of this section, except that . . .’’ In addition, Public Law 111–203 amended Section 8G(a)(4) to include six additional entity-specific exceptions to those general rules; in these exceptions, Congress specifies who is the ‘‘head of the designated Federal entity’’ for each of those entities.

The list below is divided into two groups: Designated Federal Entities and Federal Entities.

Determinations Terminating Investigations of Petitions for Worker 
Adjustment Assistance

    After notice of the petitions was published in the Federal Register 
and on the Department's Web site, as required by Section 221 of the Act 
(19 U.S.C. 2271), the Department initiated investigations of these 
petitions.
    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitioning groups of workers are covered by active 
certifications. Consequently, further investigation in these cases 
would serve no purpose since the petitioning group of workers cannot be 
covered by more than one certification at a time.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
83,239...............  Fenton Gift Shops, Inc.............  Williamstown, WV....
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

because the petitions are the subject of ongoing investigations under
