The new provision of the Trade Act went into effect on May 18, 2009 and applies to petitions filed on or after that date. The petition at hand was filed on March 30, 2009, and therefore, cannot be considered under the new provision. The workers are encouraged to file a new petition, if the workers wish to be considered under the New TAA Program. Conclusion After review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts which would justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s prior decision. Accordingly, the application is denied. Signed in Washington, DC, this 22nd day of June, 2009. Elliott S. Kushner, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.
