SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The PTFP was a competitive grant program that supports the planning and construction of public telecommunications facilities.1 The program helped public broadcasting stations, state and local governments, Indian Tribes, and nonprofit organizations to construct public television and radio stations. On November 8, 1996, NTIA issued a final rule entitled, ‘‘Public Telecommunications Facilities Program,’’ to carry out its statutory responsibility to administer the PTFP.2 1 The PTFP is authorized under the Public Telecommunications Financing Act of 1978, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 390–393, 397–399b. 2 61 FR 57966 (Nov. 8, 1996). (The rules were codified at 47 CFR part 2301). PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 The regulations outlined the PTFP grant application requirements, the evaluation and selection process, post-award requirements, and the completion of PTFP grant projects. Between Fiscal Years 1994 and 2010, NTIA awarded between $14 and $42 million each year in PTFP grant awards to assist radio, television, digital television including digital conversion projects, and distance learning. For the past seven years, no funds have been available for PTFP grants. In 2010, the Department of Commerce found that the majority of PTFP grants had assisted digital television conversion projects which had concluded, and that support for public broadcasters was available from other sources.3 For these reasons, the Department of Commerce identified the PTFP as ‘‘outdated, ineffective, or duplicative.’’ 4 Accordingly, Congress appropriated no funds for PTFP in Fiscal Year 2011.5 3 See Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2011: Hearing before the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, 111th Cong. 12, 22 (Mar. 4, 2010). 4 Id. at 12. 5 See Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011, Pub.

Requirements; Correction

AGENCY: Bureau of the Census, Commerce Department.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

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

SUMMARY: On April 19, 2017, the Census Bureau revised the Foreign Trade 
Regulations (FTR). The revisions to the FTR reflected the 
implementation of the International Trade Data System, in accordance 
with the Executive Order 13659, Streamlining the Export/Import Process 
for American Businesses. In the Final Rule, the Census Bureau also 
amended the appendices section. Appendices B, C, E, and F were removed 
and appendix D was revised and redesignated as the new appendix B. With 
the revisions to the appendices section, there are a few sections of 
the FTR that were inadvertently not updated to reflect these changes. 
This document corrects the final regulations.

DATES: Effective on September 20, 2017.
