Food and Nutrition Service Title: Annual State Report of Verification of SNAP Participants. OMB Control Number: 0584–0605. Summary of Collection: Section 4032 of the Agriculture Act of 2014 mandates States agencies will ‘‘submit to the Secretary a report containing sufficient information for the Secretary to determine whether the State agency has, for the most recently concluded fiscal year preceding that annual date, verified that the State agency in that fiscal year– (1) did not issue benefits to a deceased individual; and (2) did not issue benefits to an individual who had been permanently disqualified from receiving benefits.’’ Need and Use of the Information: The purpose of the Annual State Report of Verification of SNAP Participants is to ensure that no person who is deceased, or has been permanently disqualified from SNAP, improperly received SNAP benefits for the fiscal year preceding the report submission. State agency will use this information performing mandated checks against both eDRS and the SSA Death Master File, send an email to their FNS Regional Office SNAP Program Director to provide the verification, and any additional recordkeeping associated with this burden. States must perform this verification once a year and must retain these records for 3 years. FNS will use this information to ensure compliance and program integrity. Description of Respondents: State, Local, or Tribal Government. Number of Respondents: 53. Frequency of Responses: Recordkeeping; Reporting: Annually. Total Annual Responses: 106. Total Burden Hours: 57. Food and Nutrition Service Title: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Requirement for National Directory of New Hires Employment Verification and Annual Program Activity Reporting. OMB Control Number: 0584–0608. Summary of Collection: This requirement codified Section 4013 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Pub. L. 113–79). FNS amended the SNAP regulations at 7 CFR 272 to require State agencies to access employment data through the National Directory of New PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Hires (NDNH) at the time of certification, including recertification, to determine eligibility status and appropriate benefit amount for SNAP applicants. Need and Use of the Information: National Directory of New Hires, State agencies are required to compare identifiable information about each household member against data from the NDNH at the time of certification and recertification. This comparison will be used to determine the eligibility status of the household and determine the correct benefit amount the household should receive. The data reported on the Program Activity Statement (FNS 366B) enables FNS to identify areas that may need improvement and to provide more effective technical assistance to State agencies. An increase in reporting frequency will allow for greater access to timely program data. It will help States, FNS, and other stakeholders identify trends, inconsistencies and inefficiencies earlier in each fiscal year. FNS uses the data to monitor State agency activity levels and performance, ensure program integrity and to identify and provide technical assistance to State agencies in need of performance improvements. Description of Respondents: State, Local, or Tribal Government; Individual or households. Number of Respondents: 891,125. Frequency of Responses: Recordkeeping; Reporting: On occasion; Annually.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) has received requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with March anniversary dates. In accordance with Commerce’s regulations, we are initiating those administrative reviews. DATES: Applicable May 29, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E. Brown, Office of AD/CVD khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:45 May 28, 2019 Jkt 247001 Operations, Customs Liaison Unit, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482–4735. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Commerce has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with March anniversary dates. All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, certifications, or comments or actions by Commerce discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting time. Notice of No Sales If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the period of review (POR), it must notify Commerce within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. All submissions must be filed electronically at http://access.trade.gov in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303.1 Such submissions are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy must be served on every party on Commerce’s service list. Respondent Selection In the event Commerce limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, Commerce intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the POR. We intend to place the CBP data on the record within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 30 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection should be submitted within seven days after the placement of the CBP data on the record of this review. Parties wishing to submit rebuttal comments should submit those comments within five days after the deadline for the initial comments. 1 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24743 In the event Commerce decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, Commerce has found that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (e.g., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, Commerce will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (e.g., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this review, if Commerce determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, Commerce will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, Commerce will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value (Q&V) Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where Commerce considered collapsing that entity, complete Q&V data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that has requested a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that Commerce may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. Determinations by Commerce to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis.
