By letter of April 30, 2003, the State of Oregon requested administrative reconsideration of the Department of Labor's Notice of Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance, applicable to workers of the subject firm. The denial notice was signed on April 16, 2003, and published in the Federal Register on May 1, 2003 (68 FR 23322). Start Printed Page 47097
The Department reviewed the request for reconsideration and will conduct further investigation to determine if the workers meet the eligibility requirement under Section 223 of the Trade Act.
After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC, this 25th day of July, 2002.
Elliott S. Kushner,
