SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On February 28, 2012, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a notice of public meeting (NOPM) and availability of framework document for high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps, initiating the rulemaking and data collection process to consider establishing energy conservation standards (77 FR 11785). The NOPM requested public comment from interested parties and provided for the submission of comments by April 5, 2012. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), on behalf of itself and its members, requested an extension of the public comment period by one week. NEMA stated that the additional time is necessary to more fully evaluate and prepare the information requested in the NOPM. NEMA stated that the extension will allow NEMA to conduct necessary meetings before providing its comments.

Based on NEMA's request, DOE believes that extending the comment period to allow additional time for interested parties to prepare and submit comments is appropriate. Therefore, DOE is extending the comment period until April 12, 2012. Accordingly, DOE will consider any comments received by April 12, 2012 to be timely submitted.
