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. 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 On March 13, 2020, the Coalition of American Vertical Engine Producers and its individual members, the 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). 2 See 19 CFR 351.205(e).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On January 8, 2020, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated 
less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of imports of forged steel 
fluid end blocks (fluid end blocks) from Germany, India, and Italy.\1\ 
The deadline for the preliminary determinations is May 27, 2020.

    \1\ See Forged Steel Fluid End Blocks from the Federal Republic 
of Germany, India, and Italy: Initiation of Less-Than-Fair-Value 
Investigations, 85 FR 2394 (January 15, 2020) (Initiation Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Postponement of Preliminary Determinations

    Section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in a 
LTFV investigation within 140 days after the date on which Commerce 
initiated the investigation. However, section 733(c)(1) of the Act 
permits Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no 
later than 190 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the 
investigation if: (A) The petitioner makes a timely request for a 
postponement; or (B) Commerce concludes that the parties concerned are 
cooperating, that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and 
that additional time is necessary to make a preliminary determination. 
Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for 
postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the 
preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. 
Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to 
deny the request.
    On March 5, 2020, the petitioners \2\ submitted a timely request 
that Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV 
investigations.\3\ The petitioners stated that they request 
postponement due to the complexity of the investigations and the amount 
of time that Commerce will need to conduct a complete and thorough 
analysis, including the issuance of supplemental questionnaires.\4\ The 
petitioners request that Commerce fully extend the preliminary 
determinations by 50 days.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The petitioners are the FEB Fair Trade Coalition, Ellwood 
Group, and Finkl Steel.
    \3\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Forged Steel Fluid End Blocks 
from Germany, India, and Italy: Request to Extend Preliminary 
Results,'' dated March 5, 2020.
    \4\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the reasons stated above and because there are no compelling 
reasons to deny the request, Commerce, in accordance with section 
733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the preliminary 
determinations by 50 days (i.e., 190 days after the date on which these 
investigations were initiated). As a result, Commerce will issue its 
preliminary determinations no later than July 16, 2020. In accordance 
with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the 
deadline for the final determinations in these investigations will 
continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary 
determinations, unless postponed at a later date.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).
