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.

Notice of public hearings.
The Administrator today accepted a petition, and began a review of a petition, for trade adjustment assistance by the Michigan Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Association on behalf of apple producers in Michigan. A public hearing to review the merits of the petition will be held in Room 411-P of Suite 400, Portals Office Building, 1250 Maryland Ave., SW., Washington, DC 20024 on May 5, 2010, at 11 a.m. Eastern Time to receive written and oral comments associated with this petition.End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether or not increasing imports of apple juice contributed to a greater than 15 percent decrease in the national average price of apples compared to the average of the 3 preceding marketing years. The petition maintains that Michigan apple producers have suffered primarily due to increased imports of apple juice concentrate. Over 81 percent of the apple juice consumed in the U.S. is from imported concentrate. If a determination is affirmative, producers who produce and market apples in Michigan will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for technical assistance and cash benefits. Persons who wish to speak at the hearing must register with the TAA Coordinator at (202) 720-0638 or (202) 690-0633, at least 24 hours before the hearing. Presenters will be allotted time to speak and should submit a written summary of their remarks for the record.Start Further Info
