In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (“Act”), 19 U.S.C. 2273, the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on September 17, 2013, applicable to workers of Mt. Ida Footwear Co., a subsidiary of Munro & Company, Inc., Mount Ida, Arkansas. The Department's notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on October 24, 2013 (78 FR 63496).
At the request of the state workforce office, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers were engaged in the production of women's shoes.

Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include workers of Munro & Company, Inc., Hot Springs, Arkansas.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-83,047 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of Mt. Ida Footwear Co., a subsidiary of Munro & Company, Inc., Mt.
