Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review and Determination to Revoke Order in Part
On December 20, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published a notice of initiation and preliminary results of an antidumping duty (``AD'') changed circumstances review and intent to revoke, in part, the AD order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and Intent to Revoke Order in Part, 71 FR 76273 (December 20, 2006) (``Initiation and Preliminary Results''). We are now revoking this order in part, with regard to the following product: upholstered beds, as described in footnote 14 in the ``Scope of the Order'' section of this notice, based on the domestic parties' expression of no interest in the relief provided by the order with respect to the imports of upholstered beds, as so described. In its October 26, 2006, submission, the American Furniture Manufacturers Committee for Legal Trade and its individual members (the ``AFMC'') stated that it no longer has any interest in seeking antidumping relief from imports of such upholstered beds with respect to the subject merchandise defined in the ``Scope of the Order'' section below. On January 4, 2007, American Signature Incorporated (``ASI''), an interested party, submitted comments to the Department stating that exclusion of upholstered beds from the order is warranted.

Finally, we are rescinding the review with respect to Pastificio Antonio Pallante S.r.L./Industrie Alimentari Molisane, S.r.L./Vitelli Foods, LLC (``Pallante'') because, since the initiation of the current review, the Department has revoked the order in part, with respect to Pallante, effective July 1, 2004.

Atlantic Highly Migratory Species; Small Coastal Shark Fishery
NMFS is closing the commercial fishery for small coastal sharks conducted by persons aboard vessels issued a Federal Atlantic shark permit in the Gulf of Mexico region.

The commercial small coastal shark fisheries in the South Atlantic and North Atlantic regions are allocated separate quotas and will remain open until further notice.
