ACTION: Notice. The Administrator of the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) has denied a petition (No. 2010008) for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) for crawfish that was filed by the Louisiana Crawfish Farmers Association and accepted for review by USDA on May 3, 2010. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To qualify under the program, Subtitle C of Title I of the Trade Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107– 210) states that petitions must demonstrate, using data for the most recent, full marketing year or official marketing season, a greater than 15percent decline in at least one of the following factors: National average price, quantity of production, value of production, or cash receipts. According to the statute, it is also necessary for the petition to demonstrate that an increase in imports of articles like or directly competitive, during the same marketing period, contributed importantly to the decrease in one of the above factors for the agricultural commodity. All petitions were analyzed by USDA’s Economic Research Service and reviewed by the TAA for Farmers Review Committee, comprised of representatives from USDA’s Office of the Chief Economist, Farm Service Agency, Agricultural Marketing Service, and Foreign Agricultural Service. After a review, the Administrator determined that the import data provided did not meet the regulatory requirement for the most recent, official USDA full marketing year or full marketing season. Because the petition was unable to meet this regulatory requirement, it did not qualify for certification for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE The Administrator of the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) has denied a petition (No. 2010016) for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) for cranberries that was filed by one Washington and two Oregon cranberry growers and accepted for review by USDA on May 3, 2010. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To qualify under the program, Subtitle C of Title I of the Trade Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107– 210) states that petitions must demonstrate, using data for the most recent, full marketing year or full official marketing season, a greater than 15-percent decline in at least one of the following factors: National average price, quantity of production, value of production, or cash receipts.

All petitions were analyzed by USDA’s Economic Research Service and reviewed by the TAA for Farmers Review Committee, comprised of representatives from USDA’s Office of Chief Economist, Farm Service Agency, Agricultural Marketing Service, and Foreign Agricultural Service. After a review, the Administrator determined that a significant increase in cranberry production, along with high inventory levels, were the primary factors affecting Oregon and Washington cranberry grower prices in 2009/2010. As a result, it was found that imports were not an important factor in determining the average annual price of Oregon and Washington cranberries in 2009/2010. For this reason, the petition does not meet the regulatory requirements for certification for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010.

SUMMARY: On July 7, 2010, the United States Court of International Trade sustained the Department of Commerce’s results of redetermination on remand concerning the final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Germany. See SKF USA Inc., v. United States, Slip Op. 10–76 (CIT July 7, 2010).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On September 11, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the final results of the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom for the period May 1, 2006, through April 30, 2007. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews and Rescission of Reviews in Part, 73 FR 52823 (September 11, 2008). SKF USA Inc., SKF France S.A., SKF Aerospace France S.A.S., SKF GmbH,1 and SKF Industrie S.p.A filed a lawsuit challenging certain aspects of the final results. On December 21, 2009, the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) concluded that the Department acted within its authority and according to law in requesting costof-production (COP) data from SKF Germany’s unaffiliated suppliers. See SKF USA Inc., v. United States, 675 F. Supp. 2d 1264 (CIT December 21, 2009) (SKF Germany). The CIT also upheld the Department’s decision to reject the COP information submitted by SKF Germany’s unaffiliated supplier as untimely and to resort to facts otherwise available. Specifically, the CIT stated that ‘‘the Department has broad authority to set, and extend, its deadlines for submission of requested information, but on the uncontested facts of this case it acted within its authority in deeming the COP data an untimely submission.’’ See SKF Germany, 675 F. Supp. 2d at 1272–74. The CIT held, however, that ‘‘{the Department} acted contrary to law in drawing an inference adverse for SKF {Germany} upon the failure of the unaffiliated supplier to make a timely submission of the requested COP data’’ 1 The CIT refers to the German company as ‘‘SKF GmbH’’ in its decision. The Department refers to the company as ‘‘SKF Germany’’ in its determination and in this notice. E:\FR\FM\16JYN1.SGM 16JYN1

Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers

AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Administrator of the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) has 
denied a petition (No. 2010004) for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) 
for cut lilies that was filed by the North Carolina Flower Growers 
Association and accepted for review by USDA on May 3, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To qualify under the program, Subtitle C of 
Title I of the Trade Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107-210) states that 
petitions must demonstrate, using data for the most recent, full 
marketing year or full official marketing season, a greater than 15-
percent decline in at least one of the following factors: national 
average price, quantity of production, value of production, or cash 
receipts.
    According to the statute, it is also necessary for the petition to 
demonstrate that an increase in imports of articles like or directly 
competitive, during the same marketing period, contributed importantly 
to the decrease in one of the above factors for the agricultural 
commodity.
    All petitions were analyzed by USDA's Economic Research Service and 
reviewed by the TAA for Farmers Review Committee, comprised of 
representatives from USDA's Office of the Chief Economist, Farm Service 
Agency, Agricultural Marketing Service and Foreign Agricultural 
Service. After a review, the Administrator determined that the average 
unit price of cut lilies in marketing year 2009/2010, compared with the 
previous 3-year average, decreased by less than 15 percent. To qualify 
for the program, average unit price in the most recent marketing year, 
compared to the previous 3-year

[[Page 41435]]

average, must decrease by more than 15 percent. For this reason, the 
petition does not meet the regulatory requirements for certification 
for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010.
