Background

    On July 10, 2013, at 78 FR 41492, the FHWA published in the Federal 
Register a notice seeking comments regarding the continued need, in 
whole or in part, for the general waivers from Buy America for 
manufactured products; for ferry boat equipment; and for pig iron and 
processed, pelletized, and reduced iron ores. This notice also sought 
comment on the continuing need for the FHWA's minimal use threshold 
(currently established at $2,500 or 1/10 of 1 percent of the total 
contract value, whichever is greater). The original deadline for 
comments was August 8, 2013. In a letter dated July 23, 2013, the 
American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials 
(AASHTO) submitted a comment to the docket for this notice requesting a 
30-day extension to submit comments. This notice grants AASHTO's 
request and extends the deadline by 30 calendar days to September 8, 
2013.

    Issued on: August 2, 2013.
Victor M. Mendez,
FHWA Administrator.
