SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 4–H Youth Enrollment. OMB Number: 0524–0045. Expiration Date of Current Approval: December 31, 2016. Type of Request: Intent to seek approval for the extension of a currently approved information collection for three years. Abstract: The mission of 4–H National Headquarters; National Institute of Food and Agriculture; United States Department of Agriculture (USDA); is to advance knowledge for agriculture, the environment, human health and wellbeing, and communities by creating opportunities for youth. 4–H is a complex national organization, led by 4–H National Headquarters, NIFA, USDA, with hundreds of educational curricula, activities, and events for youth ages 5 to 18. Programs originate at 106 land-grant universities (LGUs), and local programs are conducted and managed by some 3,000 professional Extension staff in 3,150 counties, with nearly 6 million youth enrolled each year. Over 500,000 volunteer leaders work directly with the 4–H youth. The 1914 Smith-Lever Act created the Cooperative Extension System (CES) of the LGUs and their Federal partner, the Extension Service, now the National Institute of Food and Agriculture asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:06 Oct 20, 2016 Jkt 241001 (NIFA), USDA. 4–H was already wellestablished and became the first operating part of the new extension work. The Smith-Lever Act stipulated that ‘‘It shall be the duty of said colleges, annually, on or about the first day of January, to make to the Governor of the State in which it is located a full and detailed report of its operations in extension work as defined in this Act . . . a copy of which report shall be sent to the Secretary of Agriculture.’’ As a result of this requirement, annually each county sends their state 4–H office an electronic aggregated summary of their 4–H enrollment. Information collected in the 4–H Youth Enrollment Report includes youth enrollment totals by delivery mode, youth enrollment totals by type of 4–H activity, youth enrollment totals by school grade, youth enrollment totals by gender, youth enrollment totals by place of residence, adult volunteer totals, youth volunteer totals, and youth enrollment totals by race and ethnicity. Need and Use of the Information: The Annual 4–H Enrollment Report is the principal means by which the 4–H movement can keep track of its progress, as well as emerging needs, potential problems, and opportunities. The information from this collection is used to report, as requested by the Congress or the Administration, on rural versus urban outreach, enrollment by race, youth participation in leadership, community service, etc. It also is used to determine market share or percentage of the youth of each state by age and place of residence who are enrolled in the 4–H youth development program. The annual 4–H Youth Enrollment Report also allows oversight of all reasonable efforts by staff and volunteers to reach underserved and minority groups. Information also is available at http:// frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/ leaving.cgi?from=leavingFR.html&log= linklog&to=http://www.national4-h headquarters.gov/library/4h_stats.htm. Estimate of Burden: The hour burden estimates have not been modified from the previous approval because there have been no significant changes to the collection. Estimated Number of Respondents: 75. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Time per Response: 1 hour. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 75 hours. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Comments: Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request to OMB for approval. All comments will become a matter of public record.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review in its entirety. Background On February 3, 2016, the Department published the notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wind towers from the PRC for the above POR.1 On February 23, 2016, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), the Department received a timely request from the Wind Tower Trade Coalition (‘‘Petitioner’’) to conduct an administrative review.2 Pursuant to this request and in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), on April 7, 2016, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wind towers from the PRC.3 On July 6, 2016, Petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review.4 The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of wind towers from the PRC. Antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice of rescission of administrative review. Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the publication date of the notice of initiation of the requested review. As noted above, Petitioner withdrew its request for review within 90 days of the publication date of the Initiation Notice. No other parties requested an administrative review of the order. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 81 FR 5712 (February 3, 2016). 2 See Letter from Petitioner, ‘‘Utility Scale Wind Towers from the People’s Republic of China: Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated February 23, 2016. 3 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 81 FR 20324 (April 7, 2016) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). 4 See Letter from Petitioner, ‘‘Utility Scale Wind Towers from the People’s Republic of China: Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated July 6, 2016. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Assessment Notifications This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(1) and E:\FR\FM\21OCN1.SGM 21OCN1
