Trade Adjustment Assistance
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), denied a petition for
trade adjustment assistance (TAA) for fresh potatoes that was filed on March 6,
2006, by the Washington State Potato Commission.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Upon investigation, the Administrator determined that
imports did not contribute importantly to a decline in producer prices. During
the 2004/2005 marketing year, imports declined by 5.1 percent. Therefore the
Washington fresh potato petition did not meet the criteria that imports
contributed importantly in a decline in producer prices, a condition required
for certifying a petition for TAA.
