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.

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 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.

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 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

reviewed by the TAA for Farmers Review Committee, comprised of 
representatives from USDA's Office of the Chief Economist, Farm Service
