Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census, Census Bureau
This Notice announces the Bureau of the Census' (Census Bureau's) final criteria for defining census designated places (CDPs) for the 2010 Census.

They are the statistical equivalents of incorporated places, with the primary differences being the lack of both a legally-defined boundary and an active, functioning governmental structure, chartered by the state and administered by elected officials. CDPs defined for the 2010 Census also will be used to tabulate American Community Survey, Puerto Rico Community Survey, Economic Census data after 2010, and potentially data from other Census Bureau censuses and surveys.

Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Preliminary Results of New Shipper Review and Partial Rescission of Administrative Review
Document Number: E8-2648
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-02-13
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). The period of review (``POR'') for this administrative review is January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. This administrative review covers multiple producers/exporters of the subject merchandise, three of which are being individually investigated as mandatory respondents. The Department is also conducting a new shipper review for an exporter/ producer. The POR for the new shipper review is also January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. We preliminarily determine that all three mandatory respondents in the administrative review made sales in the United States at prices below normal value (``NV''). With respect to the remaining respondents in the administrative review (herein after collectively referred to as the Separate-Rate Applicants), we preliminarily determine that 30 entities have provided sufficient evidence that they are separate from the state-controlled entity, and we have established a weighted-average margin based on the rates we have calculated for the three mandatory respondents, excluding any rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on adverse facts available, to be applied to these separate rate entities. In addition, we have determined to rescind the review with respect to three entities in this administrative review. See ``Partial Rescission'' section below. Further, we preliminarily determine that the remaining separate-rate applicants have not demonstrated that they are entitled to a separate rate, and will thus be considered part of the PRC entity. Finally, we preliminarily determine that the new shipper made sales in the United States at prices below normal value. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which the importer-specific assessment rates are above de minimis. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. Parties who submit comments are requested to submit with each argument a statement of the issue and a brief summary of the argument. We intend to issue the final results of this review no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice.

NOAA and EPA conditionally approved the Florida and South Carolina coastal nonpoint programs on November 18, 1997 and February 23, 1998, respectively. NOAA and EPA have drafted approval decisions describing how Florida and South Carolina have satisfied the conditions placed on their programs and therefore have a fully approved coastal nonpoint program. NOAA and EPA are making the draft decisions for the Florida and South Carolina coastal nonpoint programs available for a 30-day public comment period. If comments are received, NOAA and EPA will consider whether such comments are significant enough to affect the decision to fully approve the programs.

Document Number: E8-2274
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-02-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On February 1, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty (``AD'') orders on stainless steel bar (``SSB'') from France, Germany, Italy, South Korea, and the United Kingdom; and the countervailing duty (``CVD'') order on SSB from Italy. See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 72 FR 4689 (February 1, 2007). Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), the International Trade Commission (``ITC'') determined that revocation of these orders would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Stainless Steel Bar From France, Germany, Italy, Korea, and The United Kingdom, 73 FR 5869 (January 31, 2008) (``ITC Final''). Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1)(iii), the Department is revoking the AD orders on SSB from France, Germany, Italy, South Korea, and the United Kingdom, and the CVD order on SSB from Italy.
