In the Federal Register of April 23, 2003 (Vol. 68, No. 78, Page 20032), the Department of Labor published a notice inviting the submission of pre-hearing statements to the Special Industry Committee for All Industries in American Samoa. Because of an unexpected delay in the release of the Economic Report, the Department will accept pre-hearing statements submitted by interested persons by May 23, 2003. If such statements are sent by airmail between American Samoa and the mainland, such filing shall be deemed timely if postmarked within the time provided. Interested persons are requested to submit comments on or before May 23, 2003.

Because of the continuing interest in this notice, the Department believes that it is desirable to extend the comment period for all interested persons. Therefore, the comment period for this notice pursuant to sections 5 and 6(a)(3) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938, as amended (29 U.S.C. 205, Start Printed Page 24509206(a)(3)), and Reorganization Plan No. 6 of 1950 (3 CFR 1949-53 Comp., p. 1004) and 29 CFR part 511, (Wage Order Procedure for American Samoa), is extended to May 23, 2003.
