SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce is cancelling one of the days of

public comments and public hearing that appeared in the Federal

automotive parts threaten to impair the national security and in 
recommending remedies if such a threat is found to exist. The hearing 
was originally scheduled for July 19 and 20. Only 45 requests to 
testify were received. Because these requests can all be accommodated 
on a single day, the second day of the hearing originally scheduled for 
July 20 is cancelled. The hearing will be held on July 19 only. The 
hearing will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will end at 5:30 p.m. The location
