Foreign Agricultural Service
Trade Adjustment Assistance
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 by a
group of Concord juice grape producers in New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. New
York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio Concord juice grape producers are no longer
eligible for TAA benefits in fiscal year 2006.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Upon investigation, the Administrator determined that
U.S. imports of grape juice & must, unfermented, not concentrated, in 2004/05
declined 39 percent compared to the base year 2003/04. Therefore, imports were
no longer a contributing factor for
program eligibility--a requirement for TAA program eligibility and therefore
insufficient grounds to re-certify this petition.
