    The petitions were submitted pursuant to Section 251 of the Trade 
Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2341). Consequently, the United States 
Department of Commerce has initiated separate investigations to 
determine whether increased imports into the United States of articles 
like or directly competitive with those produced by each firm 
contributed importantly to total or partial separation of the firm's 
workers, or threat thereof, and to a decrease in sales or production of 
each petitioning firm.
    Any party having a substantial interest in the proceedings may 
request a public hearing on the matter. A request for a hearing must be 
received by the Trade Adjustment Assistance Division, Room 7023, 
Economic Development Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 
Washington, D.C. 20230, no later than the close of business of the 
tenth calendar day following the publication of this notice.

    The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance official program 
number and title of the program under which these petitions are 
submitted is 11.313, Trade Adjustment Assistance.

    Dated: June 21, 1996.
