AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution invites comments on its draft convening report regarding Department of the Interior’s (DOI) Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA)-funded school facilities construction as identified in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB Act). The draft report was prepared at the request of the DOI, BIA, and Bureau of Indian Education (BIE). Such a convening report is described generally in the Negotiated Rulemaking Act of 1996, Pub. L. 104–320, section 563(b). As a neutral, independent federal program, the U.S. Institute and its impartial contractor team, Consensus Building Institute (CBI) conducted twohundred (200) interviews of people with an interest in BIA-funded school facilities construction. The purpose of the interviews was to explore the opportunities for, and barriers to, using negotiated rulemaking to develop regulations implementing the requirements of the NCLB Act related to BIA-funded school facilities. The draft report covers school facility topics identified from the NCLB Act: • Methods to catalog school facilities; • Determining formulas for priority and funding for school replacement construction and new construction • Determining formulas for priority and funding for school renovation and repair; • Facilities standards for home living (dormitory) situations. In the draft report, CBI identified several key themes from its interviews: • There is a strong willingness to go forward with a negotiated rulemaking, as it is required by statute.

Track Corporation Including On-Site Leased Workers of Forge 
Industrial Spring Lake, Michigan; Notice of Revised Determination on 
Reconsideration

    On June 18, 2007, the Department of Labor (Department) issued a 
Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker 
Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance 
applicable to the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Alternative 
Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) petition filed by a company official 
on behalf of workers and former workers of Track Corporation, Spring 
Lake, Michigan (subject firm). The Department's Notice of negative 
determination was published in the Federal Register on July 9, 2007 (72 
FR 37266). The subject firm produces seat adjusters for the automotive 
industry and public seating for stadiums and theaters. Workers are 
separately identifiable by product line. The TAA/ATAA petition was 
filed on behalf of workers engaged in the production of seat adjusters.
    The negative determination was based on the Department's findings 
that the subject firm did not shift production of seat adjusters abroad 
and does not import seat adjusters. A survey revealed that the subject 
firm's major customer did not import seat adjusters during the relevant 
period.
    By letter dated July 16, 2007, a company official requested 
administrative reconsideration of the Department's negative 
determination. The request for reconsideration stated that the subject 
firm's major customer replaced subject firm purchases with imported 
seat adjusters.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department carefully 
reviewed the administrative file, contacted the company official for 
clarification, and contacted the subject firm's major customer for more 
information about its import purchases.
    Previously-submitted information revealed that subject firm sales, 
production, and employment levels declined during the relevant period. 
Information obtained during the reconsideration investigation revealed 
that the subject firm's major customer began using foreign-made seat 
adjusters in 2006 and replacing subject firm purchases with foreign-
made seat adjusters during 2007.
    In accordance with section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 
2813), as amended, the Department herein presents the results of its 
investigation regarding certification of eligibility to apply for ATAA. 
The Department has determined in this case that the group eligibility 
requirements of section 246 have been met.
    A significant number of workers at the firm are age 50 or over. 
Workers possess skills that are not easily transferable. Competitive 
conditions within the industry are adverse.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the information obtained in the initial and 
reconsideration investigations, I determine that the subject workers 
are adversely-impacted by increased imports of articles like or 
directly competitive with those produced at the subject firm. In 
accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following 
certification:

    All workers of Track Corporation, including on-site workers of 
Forge Industrial, Spring Lake, Michigan, engaged in the production 
of seat adjusters, who became totally or partially separated from 
employment on or after May 16, 2006 through two years from the date 
of this certification, 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.
