This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2273) the Department of Labor issued a Notice of Determinations Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on August 4, 1999, applicable to workers of Guidant Intermedics, Angeleton, Texas. The notice was published in the Federal Register on September 29, 1999 (64 FR 52540).
At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers were engaged in the production of pacemakers and defibrillators, associated leads for the pacemakers and defibrillators and a personnel computer specifically designed for the programming of the pacemakers and defibrillators. Findings show that Cardiac Pacemakers, Inc. (CPI) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Guidant Intermedics. Findings also show that some workers separated from employment at the subject firm had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Cardiac Pacemakers, Inc., Angleton, Texas.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of Guidant Intermedics who were adversely affected by increased imports. Accordingly, the Department is amending the Notice of Determinations to reflect this matter.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-36,592 is hereby issued as follows:
“All workers of Guidant Intermedics, Cardiac Pacemakers, Inc., (CPI), Angleton, Texas engaged in employment related to the production of pacemakers and defibrillators who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after July 13, 1998 through August 4, 2001 are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.”
“I further determine that all workers at Guidant Intermedics, Cardiac Pacemakers, Inc., (CPI), Angleton, Texas engaged in activities related to the production of leads, hybrid circuits and PC's for the programming of pacemakers are denied eligibility to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.”Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC this 19th day of January, 2000.

Program Manager, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
