Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), today accepted a petition filed by a group of freshwater crawfish producers in Louisiana for trade adjustment assistance. The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether or not imports of crawfish contributed importantly to a decline in domestic producer prices of more than 20 percent during the marketing year period beginning January 2002 through December 2002. If the determination is positive, all crawfish producers in Louisiana will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for technical assistance at no cost and for adjustment assistance payments.
