G.E. Ravenna Lamp Plant, Ravenna, OH; Notice of Revised 
Determination on Reconsideration

    By letter dated August 30, 2007, a worker requested administrative 
reconsideration regarding Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance 
(ATAA). The certification for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) was 
signed on August 24, 2007. The Department's Notice of determination 
will soon be published in the Federal Register.
    The certification stated that all workers of the subject firm who 
are separated from employment on or after July 10, 2006 through August 
24, 2009, are eligible to apply for TAA. However, because the subject 
workers were covered by a certification that expired on July 29, 2006 
(TA-W-55,294), the Department is amending the impact date of TA-W-
61,863 to July 30, 2006.
    The initial investigation determined that the subject worker group 
possesses skills that are easily transferable.
    In the request for reconsideration, the worker alleged that there 
are no jobs for which the separated workers can apply.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department found that 
none of the major manufacturing firms in the local area are hiring.
    At least five percent of the workforce at the subject firm is at 
least fifty years of age. Competitive conditions within the industry 
are adverse.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the information obtained in the 
reconsideration investigation, I determine that the requirements of 
Section 222 and Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, have 
been met for workers at the subject firm.
    In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following 
certification:

    ``All workers of G.E. Ravenna Lamp Plant, Ravenna, Ohio, who 
became totally or partially separated from employment on or after 
July 30, 2006 through August 24, 2009, are eligible to apply for 
adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, 
and are eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment 
assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.''
