Determinations Terminating Investigations of Petitions for Worker 
Adjustment Assistance

    After notice of the petitions was published in the Federal Register 
and on the Department's Web site, as required by Section 221 of the Act 
(19 U.S.C. 2271), the Department initiated investigations of these 
petitions.
    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
             TA-W No.                    Subject firm            Location                  Impact date

                                     Division.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitioning groups of workers are covered by active 
certifications. Consequently, further investigation in these cases 
would serve no purpose since the petitioning group of workers cannot be 
covered by more than one certification at a time.
