Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA
SUMMARY: The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), today denied a petition filed by a group of freshwater prawn producers from Kentucky for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) that was filed on February 23, 2004.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, CONTACT: Jean-Louis Pajot, Coordinator, Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers, FAS, USDA, (202) 720-2916, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Upon investigation, the Administrator determined that the price information provided in the petition could not be validated. Thus Kentucky prawn prices could not be verified to have declined by more than 20 percent during the January-December 2002 marketing year, compared to the previous 5-year average, a condition required for certifying a petition for TAA.
Dated: April 09, 2004.
A. Ellen Terpstra,
Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service.
