Economic Development Administration

Notice of Petitions by Firms for Determination of Eligibility To 
Apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance

AGENCY: Economic Development Administration, Commerce.

ACTION: Notice and opportunity for public comment.


    Pursuant to Section 251 of the Trade Act 1974, as amended (19 
U.S.C. 2341 et seq.), the Economic Development Administration (EDA) has 
received petitions for certification of eligibility to apply for Trade 
Adjustment Assistance from the firms listed below. Accordingly, EDA has 
initiated investigations to determine whether increased imports into 
the United States of articles like or directly competitive with those 
produced by each of these firms contributed importantly to the total or 
partial separation of the firm's workers, or threat thereof, and to a 
decrease in sales or production of each petitioning firm.
