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 petitions for trade adjustment
assistance (TAA) that was filed by shrimp producers in Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas. Shrimp
producers in these states are no longer eligible for TAA benefits in fiscal year 2006.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Upon investigation, the Administrator determined
that U.S. imports of shrimp fell by 7.9 million pounds
between 2003 and 2004, a decline of 0.9 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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dated: October 20, 2005.
W. Kirk Miller,
Acting Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service.
