The rental fee is proposed at $45 per night. Lookout rentals offer a unique experience and are a widely popular offering on National Forests. The Tahoe National Forest currently operates one lookout for public rental, the Calpine Lookout on the Sierraville Ranger District. Sardine Lookout is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Fees are assessed based on the level of amenities and services provided, cost of operations and maintenance, and market assessment. These fees are proposed and will be determined upon further analysis and public comment. Funds from fees would be used for the continued operation, maintenance, enhancement and protection of this lookout and the historical integrity of the facility. An analysis of nearby recreation facilities shows that the proposed fees are reasonable and typical of similar sites in the area. DATES: Comments will be accepted through February 7, 2017. The Sardine Lookout rental will be listed with the National Recreation Reservation Service.

Further, consistent with our practice, we find that it is not appropriate to rescind the review with respect to these companies but, rather, to complete the review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of review.5 Separate Rates The Department preliminarily determines that 24 respondents are eligible to receive separate rates in this review.6 Separate Rates for Eligible NonSelected Respondents Consistent with our practice, we assigned to eligible non-selected respondents the weighted-average margin calculated for Bosun Tools Co., Ltd. as the separate rate for the preliminary results of this review.7 Shinhan Diamond Industrial Co., Ltd., and the April 1, 2016, letter correcting the separate rate certification and certifying no shipment from Danyang Tsunda Diamond Tools Co., Ltd. 3 See the CBP data attached to the letter to all interested parties dated January 15, 2016. 4 See CBP message numbers 6294301, 6294302, 6294305, 6294306, and 6294307 dated October 20, 2016, available at http://adcvd.cbp.dhs.gov/ adcvdweb/. 5 See, e.g., Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results and Final Rescission, In Part, of Administrative Review and Final Results of New Shipper Review; 2013, 80 FR 34619 (June 17, 2015). 6 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 4–8, for more details. 7 Id.
