Title: Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program. OMB Number: 0575–0179. Expiration Date of Approval: December 31, 2020. Type of Request: Revision of a Previously Approved Information Collection. Abstract: Under this program, loan guarantees are provided to participating lenders who make loans to income eligible borrowers in rural areas. The purpose of this program is to promote affordable housing for low- and moderate-income borrowers in rural America. The revision resulted from an estimated increase of 1,714,757 responses and 681,089 burden hours since the last submission. Any change in hours is a result of increased program level funding and demand by the public. Also considered is a change in the average loan amount, additional lenders participating in the program, due to a change in the program funding level and a keener interest by industry partners. Backlogs in some States caused delays in processing lender requests that resulted in various turnaround times from state to state. Integration of the SFHGLP into the National model was necessary to provide lenders improved customer service, consistent turn times and policy interpretation. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 49 minutes per response. Respondents: Private sector lenders participating in the Rural Development Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program. Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,520. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 737. Estimated Number of Responses: 1,766,094. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 1,361,748. Copies of this information collection can be obtained from Arlette Mussington, Innovation Center— Regulations Management Division, at (202) 720–2825. Email: arlette.mussington@usda.gov. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record. Bruce W. Lammers, Administrator, Rural Housing Service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On February 4, 2020, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) 
initiated the countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of certain 
vertical shaft engines between 225cc and 999cc, and parts thereof from 
the People's Republic of China.\1\ Currently, the preliminary 
determination is due no later than April 9, 2020.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Vertical Shaft Engines Between 223cc and 999cc, 
and Parts Thereof from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of 
Countervailing Duty Investigation, 85 FR 8835 (February 18, 2020).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Postponement of the Preliminary Determination

    Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in a CVD 
investigation within 65 days after the date on which Commerce initiated 
the investigation. However, section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act permits 
Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 
130 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation 
if a petitioner makes a timely request for a postponement. Under 19 CFR 
351.205(e), a petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days 
or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and 
must state the reason for the request. Commerce will grant the request 
unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See 19 CFR 351.205(e).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On March 13, 2020, the Coalition of American Vertical Engine 
Producers and its individual members, the petitioner in this 
investigation, submitted a timely request pursuant to section 
703(c)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(e) to postpone fully the 
preliminary determination. The petitioner stated that the purpose of 
its request was to provide Commerce with sufficient time to receive and 
analyze the questionnaire responses of the mandatory respondents.\3\

    \3\ See Petitioner's Letter, ``Certain Vertical Shaft Engines 
Between 225cc and 999cc from the People's Republic of China: Request 
to Postpone Preliminary Determination,'' dated March 13, 2020.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the reason for requesting a 
postponement of the preliminary determination and the record does not 
present any compelling reasons to deny the request. Therefore, in 
accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, Commerce is postponing 
the deadline for the preliminary determination to June 15, 2020.\4\ 
Pursuant to section 705(a)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the 
deadline for the final determination will continue to be 75 days after 
the date of the preliminary determination, unless postponed at a later 
date.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ In this case, 130 days after initiation falls on June 13, 
2020, a Saturday. Where a deadline falls on a weekend or federal 
holiday, the appropriate deadline is the next business day. See 
Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule

Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
