FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background The American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act of 2016 (the Act), 19 U.S.C. 1332 note, establishes a process for the submission and consideration of requests for temporary duty suspensions and reductions. The Act requires the Commission to initiate the process by publishing a notice requesting members of the public who can demonstrate that they are likely beneficiaries of duty suspensions or reductions to submit petitions and Commission disclosure forms to the Commission. The Act establishes the information to be contained in a petition and sets out the process the Commission is to follow. The Act requires the Commission to publish its notice requesting petitions no later than October 15, 2019, and to allow the public to file petitions during the 60-day period following publication of the notice. After the period for filing petitions closes, the Commission is required to publish the petitions on its website and provide notice to the public of the opportunity to submit comments on the petitions. The Act requires the Commission to submit preliminary and final reports to the House Committee on Ways and Means and the Senate Committee on Finance (Committees) on the petitions received. The reports are to include the Commission’s analysis and recommendations regarding the petitions, including determinations regarding whether there is domestic production of the article, whether the duty suspension or reduction can likely be administered by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, whether the estimated loss in revenues due to the duty suspension or reduction does not exceed $500,000, and whether the duty suspension or reduction will be available to any person importing the article. The Commission is required to classify the petitions into categories based on whether (1) the petition meets the requirements for inclusion in a miscellaneous tariff bill; (2) the Commission recommends inclusion in E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1
