The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) proposes to implement a National Survey of Tribal Courts (NSTCS). Tribal courts are diverse, with some being extensively elaborate in their development, some based on traditional or indigenous customs, and others are just beginning to develop a contemporary justice system. Over the past decade, legislation such as the Violence against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013, the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010, and the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (PL 109–248) have sought to improve public safety in Indian country through expanded jurisdiction over non-Indians for domestic violence cases, increased sentencing authority for tribal courts, and tracking of active protection orders and sex offenders through a registry or database systems. In addition, TLOA specifically requires the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) to (1) establish and implement a comprehensive tribal crime data collection system; (2) support tribal participation in national records and information systems (P.L. 111–211, 124 Stat. 2258, § 251(b)); and (3) report to Congress annually the data collected and analyzed in accordance with the act. Existing information on tribal courts is extremely dated or was conducted with a narrow focus and did not include all of the distinctive areas or types of tribal courts that operate in the U.S.—the lower 48 States, Alaska, and the Courts of Indian Offenses. No reliable and recurring data are collected on the volume and types of criminal and civil cases handle in tribal courts annually, as well as the types of justice programs and services rendered in tribal communities. Hence, the NSTCS will fill these gaps and provide national level statistics on the administration and operation of trial and appellate courts in Indian country. The NSTCS is designed to provide BJS and other interested stakeholders with current empirical information on tribal court systems. A goal of the NSTCS is to obtain national statistics on the types of tribal forums, including joint jurisdictional tribal-state courts; staffing and qualifications; budgets; prosecution; public defense and civil legal services; pretrial, probation and reentry programs; juvenile justice cases; domestic violence and protection orders; enhanced sentencing and expanded jurisdiction capacity; and criminal justice information database access and reporting. These data will help BJS generate aggregate statistics on the organizational structure of the tribal E:\FR\FM\25AUN1.SGM 25AUN1

Certain Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products From China and 
Taiwan; Scheduling of the Final Phase of Countervailing Duty and 
Antidumping Duty Investigations

AGENCY: United States International Trade Commission.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Commission hereby gives notice of the scheduling of the 
final phase of antidumping and countervailing duty investigation Nos. 
701-TA-511 and 731-TA-1246-1247 (Final) under sections 705(b) and 
731(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 1673d(b)) (the 
Act) to determine whether an industry in the United States is 
materially injured or threatened with material injury, or the 
establishment of an industry in the United States is materially 
retarded, by reason of imports of certain crystalline silicon 
photovoltaic products from China and Taiwan that are being sold at less 
than fair value and subsidized by the Government of China.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For purposes of these investigations, the Department of 
Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as ``crystalline 
silicon photovoltaic cells, and modules, laminates and/or panels 
consisting of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not 
partially or fully assembled into other products, including building 
integrated materials.
    For purposes of these investigations, subject merchandise also 
includes modules, laminates and/or panels assembled in the subject 
country consisting of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells that 
are completed or partially manufactured within a customs territory 
other than that subject country, using ingots that are manufactured 
in the subject country, wafers that are manufactured in the subject 
country, or cells where the manufacturing process begins in the 
subject country and is completed in a non-subject country.
    Subject merchandise includes crystalline silicon photovoltaic 
cells of thickness equal to or greater than 20 micrometers, having a 
p/n junction formed by any means, whether or not the cell has 
undergone other processing, including, but not limited to, cleaning, 
etching, coating, and/or addition of materials (including, but not 
limited to, metallization and conductor patterns) to collect and 
forward the electricity that is generated by the cell.
    Excluded from the scope of these investigations are thin film 
photovoltaic products produced from amorphous silicon (a-Si), 
cadmium telluride (CdTe), or copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS).
    Also excluded from the scope of these investigations are any 
products covered by the existing antidumping and countervailing duty 
orders on crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not 
assembled into modules, from the People's Republic of China.
    Also excluded from the scope of these investigations are 
crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, not exceeding 10,000 mm\2\ 
in surface area, that are permanently integrated into a consumer 
good whose function is other than power generation and that consumes 
the electricity generated by the integrated crystalline silicon 
photovoltaic cell. Where more than one cell is permanently 
integrated into a consumer good, the surface area for purposes of 
this exclusion shall be the total combined surface area of all cells 
that are integrated into the consumer good.
    Merchandise covered by these investigations is currently 
classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) under subheadings 8501.61.0000, 8507.20.8030, 8507.20.8040,
