Liberty Fibers Corporation, Lowland, TN; Notice of Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By letter dated November 28, 2007, a company official requested 
administrative reconsideration of the Department's Notice of Negative 
Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment 
Assistance, applicable to workers and former workers of the subject 
firm. The negative determination was issued on November 13, 2007, and 
was published in the Federal Register on December 10, 2007 (72 FR 
69711).
    The negative determination was based on the Department's finding 
that, during the relevant period, the subject firm did not produce an 
article within the meaning of section 222(a)(2) of the Trade Act of 
1974. Workers performed maintenance of a facility that ceased 
production prior to the relevant period.
    The request for reconsideration stated that several workers were 
not separated prior to the expiration of a previous Trade Adjustment 
Assistance certification (TA-W-58,039) because those workers were 
required in order for the trustee appointed by the bankruptcy court to 
carry out its responsibilities (to liquidate the assets and settle the 
affairs of the corporation).
    The request for reconsideration also stated that the TAA 
certification of TA-W-58,039 was amended on February 28, 2006 and that 
the amended certification stated that ``[t]he intent of the 
Department's certification is to include all workers of Liberty Fibers 
Corporation, a subsidiary of Silva Holdings, Inc., Lowland, Tennessee 
who was adversely affected by increased customer imports.''
    The Department has carefully reviewed the request for 
reconsideration and has determined that the Department will conduct 
further investigation.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim 
is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. 
Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, 
granted.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 11th day of December 2007.

Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
