SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    On December 9, 2013, DOE published a notice of public meeting and 
availability of framework document in the Federal Register (78 FR 
73737) initiating the rulemaking and data collection process to 
consider new and amended energy conservation standards for products 
included in the definition of GSLs. The notice provided for the 
submission of public comments by January 23, 2014. National Electrical 
Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has requested a 2-week extension of 
the comment period, stating that it needs additional time to fully 
evaluate the framework document, its scope and definitions.
    Based on NEMA's request, DOE believes that extending the comment 
period to allow additional time for interested parties to submit 
comments is appropriate. Therefore, DOE is extending the comment period 
until February 7, 2014 to provide interested parties additional time to 
prepare and submit comments. Accordingly, DOE will consider any 
comments received by February 7, 2014 to be timely submitted.

    Issued in Washington, DC on January 16, 2014.
Kathleen B. Hogan,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency, Energy Efficiency and 
Renewable Energy.
