seq.), the Economic Development Administration (EDA) has received 
petitions for certification of eligibility to apply for Trade 
Adjustment Assistance from the firms listed below. EDA has initiated 
separate investigations to determine whether increased imports into the

separation of the firm's workers, or threat thereof, and to a decrease 
in sales or production of each petitioning firm.
