For background, see Certain Devices for Connecting Computers via Telephone Lines, Inv. No. 337–TA–360, USITC Pub. No. 2843 (December 1994) (Commission Opinion). If the Commission contemplates some form of remedy, it must consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The factors the Commission will consider include the effect that an exclusion order and/or cease and desist orders would have on (1) the public health and welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, (3) U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. consumers. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving written submissions that address the aforementioned public interest factors in the context of this investigation. If the Commission orders some form of remedy, the U.S. Trade Representative, as delegated by the President, has 60 days to approve or disapprove the Commission’s action. See Presidential Memorandum of July 21, 2005, 70 FR 43251 (July 26, 2005). During this period, the subject articles would be entitled to enter the United States under bond, in an amount determined by the Commission. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving submissions concerning the amount of the bond that should be imposed if a remedy is ordered. Written Submissions: The parties to the investigation are requested to file written submissions on the issues identified in this notice. Parties to the investigation, interested government agencies, and any other interested parties are encouraged to file written submissions on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding. Such submissions should address the recommended determination by the ALJ on remedy and bonding with respect to the asserted patent. Complainant and OUII are also requested to submit proposed remedial orders for the Commission’s consideration. Complainant is further requested to state the date that the patent expires and the HTSUS numbers under which the accused products are imported, and provide identification information for all known importers of the subject articles. A party’s written submission on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding do not count towards its 60-page limit. The written submissions and proposed remedial orders must be filed no later than close of business on Friday, December 12, 2014. Reply submissions must be filed no later than the close of business on Friday, VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:19 Dec 05, 2014 Jkt 235001 December 19, 2014. No further submissions on these issues will be permitted unless otherwise ordered by the Commission. Persons filing written submissions must file the original document electronically on or before the deadlines stated above and submit eight (8) true paper copies to the Office of the Secretary by noon the next day pursuant to section 210.4(f) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.4(f)). Submissions should refer to the investigation number (‘‘Inv. No. 337–TA–895’’) in a prominent place on the cover page and/or the first page. (See Handbook for Electronic Filing Procedures, http://www.usitc.gov/ secretary/fed_reg_notices/rules/ handbook_on_electronic_filing.pdf). Persons with questions regarding filing should contact the Secretary (202–205– 2000). Any person desiring to submit a document to the Commission in confidence must request confidential treatment. All such requests should be directed to the Secretary to the Commission and must include a full statement of the reasons why the Commission should grant such treatment. See 19 CFR 201.6. Documents for which confidential treatment by the Commission is properly sought will be treated accordingly. A redacted nonconfidential version of the document must also be filed simultaneously with the any confidential filing. All nonconfidential written submissions will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Secretary and on EDIS. The authority for the Commission’s determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in Part 210 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR part 210).

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: As a part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burdens, the Department of Labor (DOL) conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3505(c)(2)(A). The program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of the collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. The Department notes that a Federal agency cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it is approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the PRA, and displays a currently valid OMB control number, and the public is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB number. Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a currently valid OMB control mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:19 Dec 05, 2014 Jkt 235001 number.

Background: On July 21, 2014 President Obama issued Executive Order 13672, titled ‘‘Further Amendments to Executive Order 11478, Equal Employment Opportunity in the Federal Government and Executive Order 11246, Equal Employment Opportunity.’’ Executive Order 13672 amends Executive Order 11246 and PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72703 directs DOL to prepare regulations to implement its requirements. Concurrent with this Notice, DOL is publishing a final rule implementing Executive Order 13672, which amended the existing regulations implementing Executive Order 11246 by substituting ‘‘sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin’’ for ‘‘sex or national origin’’ wherever the list of bases upon which Federal contractors are prohibited from discriminating against job applicants and employees appeared.1 Among other things, these regulations set forth information disclosure and reporting requirements for covered Federal contractors, subcontractors, and federally assisted construction contractors and subcontractors. Information collection requirements addressed in this rule include modified language in the equal opportunity clause that contractors 2 must use in covered subcontracts and purchase orders; modified language that contractors must use in job advertisements and employment solicitations; and a modification to the requirement that a contractor report to the Department of State and OFCCP when their employees or prospective employees are denied a visa or entry to a country in which or with which it is doing business, and it believes the denial is due to a basis covered by Executive Order 11246, as amended by Executive Order 13672. Current Action: Pursuant to the PRA implementing regulations at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1), this notice requests comments on the information collection request discussed above in the Background section of this notice. Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the individual identified in the ADDRESSES section above. In addition to having a 60-day opportunity to file comments with the Department, written comments under the PRA about the information collection requirements may be addressed to the OMB. Comments to the OMB should be directed to: Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Attention OMB Desk Officer for the DOL–OS, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10235, Washington, DC 1 While the text of 41 CFR 60–1.11 contains the full list of protected characteristics, that section has been indefinitely suspended as per Notice of Further Deferral of Effective Dates of Regulations, 46 FR 18951 (Mar. 27, 1981) and Payment of Membership Fees and Other Expenses to Private Organizations; Proposed Rule Withdrawal, 46 FR 19004 (Mar. 27, 1981), and thus cannot be amended. 2 Unless otherwise stated, the term ‘‘contractor’’ includes both ‘‘contractors’’ and ‘‘subcontractors,’’ and the term ‘‘contract’’ also includes ‘‘subcontracts.’’ E:\FR\FM\08DEN1.SGM 08DEN1
