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.
By letter dated January 24, 2005, the state official requested administrative reconsideration regarding Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA). The negative determination was signed on January 10, 2005 and will be soon published in the Federal Register.
The workers of Louisiana Pacific Corporation, OSB-Woodland, Baileyville, Maine were certified eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) on January 10, 2005.
The initial ATAA investigation determined that the skills of the subject worker group are easily transferable to other positions in the local area.
The state official provided documentation with the request for reconsideration which contains evidence that the skills of the workers at the subject firm are not easily transferable in the local commuting area.
Additional investigation has determined that the workers possess skills that are not easily transferable. A significant number or proportion of the worker group are age fifty or over. Competitive conditions within the industry are adverse.
After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I conclude that the requirements of Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, have been met for workers at the subject firm.
In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification:
All workers of Louisiana Pacific Corporation, OSB-Woodland, Baileyville, Maine, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after November 18, 2003 through January 10, 2006, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, and are also eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
Signed in Washington, DC this 25th day of January 2005.
Elliott S. Kushner,
Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
