Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), today terminated the certification of a petition for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) that was filed by the Olive Growers Council, Visalia, California. California olive producers are no longer eligible for TAA benefits in fiscal year 2006.End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
Upon investigation, the Administrator determined that U.S. imports of non-green olives (canned black olives) fell by 7 percent. Therefore, imports were no longer a contributing factor for program eligibility—a requirement for TAA program eligibility and therefore insufficient grounds to re-certify this petition.Start Further Info
