Foreign Agricultural Service
Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural
Service (FAS), terminated the certification of a
petition for trade adjustment assistance (TAA)
on December 12, 2006, that was filed by a group
of Florida avocado producers. Florida avocado
producers are no longer eligible for TAA
benefits in fiscal year 2007.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Upon
investigation, the Administrator determined that
U.S. producer prices for fresh Florida avocados
were 39 percent higher than the base five-year
average price. Therefore, producer prices were
no longer a contributing factor for program
eligibility--a requirement for TAA program
eligibility and therefore insufficient grounds
to re-certify this petition.
