DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
Foreign Agricultural Service
Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS),
today terminated the certification of a petition for trade adjustment assistance
(TAA) that was filed by a group of shrimp producers in Florida certified on
April 5, 2004. Florida shrimp producers are no longer eligible for TAA benefits
in fiscal year 2005.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Upon investigation, the Administrator determined that U.S. imports of shrimp fell by 11.4 million pounds between 2003 and 2004, a decline of 2.1 percent. Therefore, imports were no longer a contributing factor for program eligibility. An increase in imports is required for re-certifying a petition for TAA.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jean-Louis Pajot, Coordinator, Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers, FAS, USDA, (202) 720-2916, e-mail: email@example.com.
Dated: April 05, 2005
Kenneth J. Roberts,
Acting Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service.
