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.
On April 10, 2002, the Department issued an Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for the workers and former workers of the subject firm. The notice was published in the Federal Register on May 2, 2002 (67 FR 22116).
The Department initially denied TAA to workers of Georgia-Pacific West, Camas, Washington because the “contributed importantly” group eligibility requirement of Section 222(3) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, was not met. The investigation revealed that customers did not increase their import purchases of technical specialty paper during the relevant period. The workers at the subject firm were engaged in employment related to the production of technical specialty paper.
On reconsideration, as requested by the Association of Western Pulp Paper Workers, the Department surveyed additional customers of Georgia Pacific-West regarding their purchases of technical specialty paper for 1999, 2000 and 2001. The survey revealed that none of these customers purchased imports of technical specialty paper during the relevant period.
After reconsideration, I affirm the original notice of negative determination of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance for workers and former workers of Georgia-Pacific West, Camas, Washington.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC, this 21st day of May 2002.
Linda G. Poole,
Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
