The Department’s Notice was published in the Federal Register on February 10, 2006 (71 FR 7076). The initial negative determination was based on the findings that the subject worker group does not produce an article within the meaning of Section 222(a)(2) of the Trade Act and do not support a domestic production facility that is import-impacted. Workers produced graphic art design for apparel manufactured at affiliated facilities in Costa Rica and Washington, Missouri. Workers were separated when the subject facility closed in 2005. In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner alleged that art design production shifted to Costa Rica in 2005. During the reconsideration investigation, the Department contacted a company official who stated that art design shifted to Costa Rica in 2005. The investigation also revealed that all criteria have been met in regard to Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA). A significant number or proportion of the worker group are age fifty years or over and workers possess skills that are not easily transferable. Competitive conditions within the industry are adverse. Conclusion After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I conclude that a shift of art design production to Costa Rica contributed importantly to worker separations at the subject firm.

Regarding Application for Reconsideration for the workers and former 
workers of Rawlings Sporting Goods Company, A Subsidiary of K2, Inc., 
Licking, Missouri. The Department's Notice was published in the Federal 
Register on February 10, 2006 (71 FR 7076).
    The initial negative determination was based on the findings that 
the subject worker group does not produce an article within the meaning 
of Section 222(a)(2) of the Trade Act and do not support a domestic 
production facility that is import-impacted. Workers produced graphic 
art design for apparel manufactured at affiliated facilities in Costa 
Rica and Washington, Missouri. Workers were separated when the subject 
facility closed in 2005.
    In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner alleged that art 
design production shifted to Costa Rica in 2005.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department contacted 
a company official who stated that art design shifted to Costa Rica in 
2005.
    The investigation also revealed that all criteria have been met in 
regard to Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA). A significant 
number or proportion of the worker group are age fifty years or over

Competitive conditions within the industry are adverse.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I conclude that a shift of art design production to 
Costa Rica contributed importantly to worker separations at the subject 
firm.
    In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following 
certification:

    All workers of Rawlings Sporting Goods Company, A Subsidiary of 
K2, Inc., Licking, Missouri, who became totally or partially 
separated from employment on or after December 5, 2004, through two
