End Preamble Start Supplemental Information

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Upon investigation, the Administrator determined that imports did not contribute importantly to a decline in producer prices. During the 2004/2005 marketing year, imports declined by 5.1 percent. Therefore the Washington fresh potato petition did not meet the criteria that imports contributed importantly in a decline in producer prices, a condition required for certifying a petition for TAA.
