ACTION: Notice of Availability of an Environmental Assessment. AGENCY: The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to consider the reasonably foreseeable environmental consequences associated with the approval of wind energyrelated research activities offshore Virginia as proposed by the Virginia Department of Mines, Mineral, and Energy (DMME). The purpose of this notice is to inform the public of the availability of the EA and to solicit public comment on the EA for a 30-day public comment period. DATES: BOEM will conduct a public information meeting to explain the proposed activities analyzed in the EA and provide additional opportunity for public comment on the EA. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 17, 2014, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, 717 General Booth Boulevard, Virginia Beach, Virginia 23451.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 6, 2013, BOEM issued a rljohnson on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:30 Dec 01, 2014 Jkt 235001 Determination of No Competitive Interest (78 FR 73882) for a research lease requested by the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy (DMME). DMME subsequently submitted a research activities plan (RAP) that describes the proposed construction, operation, maintenance, and eventual decommissioning of Virginia Offshore Wind Technology Advancement Project (VOWTAP). The RAP included the results of site characterization studies, such as geophysical, geotechnical, archaeological, and biological surveys. DMME’s proposed project would consist of two 6–MW wind turbine generators (WTGs), a 34.5-kilovolt (kV) alternating current (AC) submarine cable interconnecting the WTGs (inter-array cable), a 34.5 kV AC submarine transmission cable (export cable), and a 34.5 kV underground cable (onshore interconnection cable) that would connect the proposed project with existing infrastructure located in the City of Virginia Beach. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing to provide funding in support of VOWTAP and is participating as a cooperating agency in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. On March 14, 2014, BOEM published a Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an EA in the Federal Register (79 FR 14534). Comments received in response to the NOI can be viewed at: http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for Docket ID BOEM–2014–0009. A public scoping meeting was held April 3, 2014 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. BOEM used the input from the scoping process to solicit information regarding important environmental issues and alternatives that should be considered in the EA. Additionally, BOEM used the scoping process to identify and eliminate from detailed study issues which are not significant or issues that have been analyzed in prior environmental reviews. BOEM is seeking public input on the EA, including comments on the completeness and adequacy of the environmental analysis. BOEM will consider public comments on the EA in determining whether to issue a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), or conduct additional analysis under the NEPA.

[Investigation Nos. 701-TA-506 and 508 and 731-TA-1238-1243 (Final)]


Non-Oriented Electrical Steel From China, Germany, Japan, Korea, 
Sweden, and Taiwan

Determinations

    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigations, the United States International Trade Commission 
(``Commission'') determines, pursuant to sections 705(b) and 735(b) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b)) and (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) 
(``the Act''), that an industry in the United States is materially 
injured by reason of imports of non-oriented electrical steel from 
China, Germany, Japan, Korea, Sweden, and Taiwan, provided for in 
subheadings 7225.19.00, 7226.19.10, and 7226.19.90 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found by the 
Department of Commerce to be sold in the United

[[Page 71447]]

States at less than fair value (``LTFV''), and by reason of imports 
from China and Taiwan that have been found by Commerce to be subsidized 
by the governments of China and Taiwan.\2\ The Commission also finds 
that imports subject to Commerce's affirmative critical circumstances 
determinations are not likely to undermine seriously the remedial 
effect of those countervailing and antidumping duty orders to be issued 
on non-oriented electrical steel from China, Germany, Japan, and 
Sweden.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission's 
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).

Background

    The Commission instituted these investigations effective September 
30, 2013, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by AK Steel Corp., West Chester, Ohio. The final phase of 
these investigations was scheduled by the Commission following 
notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce that imports of 
non-oriented electrical steel from China and Taiwan were subsidized 
within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) 
and that imports of non-oriented electrical steel from China, Germany, 
Japan, Korea, Sweden, and Taiwan were sold at LTFV within the meaning 
of 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)).\3\ Notice of the scheduling 
of the final phase of the Commission's investigations and of a public 
hearing to be held in connection therewith was given by posting copies 
of the notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade 
Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the notice in the Federal 
Register on July 11, 2014 (79 FR 40143). The hearing was held in 
Washington, DC, on October 8, 2014, and all persons who requested the 
opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ In its preliminary countervailing duty determination, 
Commerce found that imports of non-oriented electrical steel were 
not being and not likely to be subsidized by the government of Korea 
(79 FR 16295, March 25, 2014). Following a final negative 
countervailing duty determination by Commerce with respect to non-
oriented electrical steel from Korea (79 FR 61605, October 14, 
2014), the Commission terminated investigation No. 701-TA-507 (79 FR 
64408, October 29, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission completed and filed its determinations in these 
investigations on November 25, 2014. The views of the Commission are 
contained in USITC Publication 4502 (November 2014), entitled Non-
Oriented Electrical Steel from China, Germany, Japan, Korea, Sweden, 
and Taiwan: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-506 and 508 and 731-TA-1238-1243
