Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), today terminated the certification of petitions for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) that was filed by the National Grape Cooperative Association representing Michigan and Washington Concord juice grape producers. Concord juice grape producers in these states are no longer eligible for TAA benefits in fiscal year 2007.End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
Upon investigation, the Administrator determined that U.S. imports of grape juice fell by 10.1 million liters between 2005 and 2006, a decline of 4 percent. Therefore, imports were no longer a contributing factor for program eligibility. An increase in imports is required for re-certifying a petition for TAA.Start Further Info
