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 hearing.
The Administrator today accepted a petition, and began review of a petition, for trade adjustment assistance by the Prune Bargaining Association on behalf of prune producers in California. A public hearing to review the merits of the petition will be held via teleconference on May 6, 2010, at 3 p.m. Eastern Time to receive oral comments associated with this petition.End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether or not increasing imports of prune juice contributed importantly to a greater than 15 percent decrease in the national average price of prunes compared to the average of the three preceding marketing years. The petition maintains that California prune producers have suffered a greater than 15 percent decrease in the national average price due primarily to U.S. imports of prune juice (primarily in the form of prune juice concentrate) and, to a smaller degree, dried prunes. If a determination is affirmative, producers who produce and market prunes in California will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for cash benefits and technical assistance at no cost. Persons who wish to listen or 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.
