SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Background: The American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act of 2016 
(the Act), 19 U.S.C. 1332 note, established a process for the 
submission and consideration of requests for temporary duty suspensions 
and reductions. Section 3(b)(1) of 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 Commission published this notice in the 
Federal Register on October 11, 2019 (84 FR 54924). Consistent with 
Section 3(b)(1) of the Act, the notice required that petitions be 
submitted by the close of business on December 10, 2019.
    Under Section 3(b)(3)(A) of the Act, within 30 days of the 
expiration of the period for filing petitions, the Commission must 
publish on its website the petitions received that contain the 
information required by the Act. Under section 3(b)(3)(B) of the Act, 
the Commission must also publish a notice in the Federal Register 
requesting members of the public to submit comments to the Commission 
on the petitions published on the Commission's website. On January 10, 
2020, the Commission both published the petitions received on its 
website and published the required notice in the Federal Register (85 
FR 1327) requesting members of the public to submit comments on those 
petitions no later than the close of business on February 24, 2020.
    Section 3(b)(3)(B)(ii) of the Act requires the Commission to 
publish a notice in the Federal Register directing members of the 
public to a publicly available Commission website to view the comments 
on the petitions by members of the public that the Commission received. 
This notice satisfies that requirement. Members of the public may view 
those comments on the Commission's website at https://mtbps.usitc.gov.
    The Commission is now preparing the reports that it is required to 
submit, under section 3(b)(3)(C) and (E) of the Act, to the House 
Committee on Ways and Means and the Senate Committee on Finance (the 
Committees) on the petitions for duty suspensions and reductions 
submitted. The Commission will submit its preliminary report to the 
Committees in June 2020 and its final report in August 2020. In 
preparing these reports, the Commission will consider the petitions and 
comments submitted, the report that the U.S. Department of Commerce (in 
consultation with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and other relevant 
Federal agencies) submits to the Commission under section 3(c) of the 
Act, and any other information that it considers appropriate.

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: March 17, 2020.
