Notice of Petitions by Firms for Determination of Eligibility To Apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance, 21437-21438 [2014-08634]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 73 / Wednesday, April 16, 2014 / Notices Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Abstract: RUS Bulletin 1728H–702 and 7 CFR 1728.202 describe the responsibilities and procedures pertaining to the quality control by producers and pertaining to inspection of timber products produced in accordance with RUS specifications. In order to ensure the security of loan funds, adequate quality control of timber products is vital to loan security on electric power systems where hundreds of thousands of wood poles and cross-arms are used. Since RUS and its borrowers do not have the expertise or manpower to quickly determine imperfections in the wood products or their preservatives treatments, they must obtain service of an inspection agency to insure that the specifications for wood poles and cross-arms are being met. Copies of test reports on various preservatives must accompany each load of poles treated at the same time in a pressure cylinder (charge) as required by 7 CFR 1728.202(i). RUS feels the importance of safety concerns are enough to justify requiring test reports so that the purchaser, inspectors, and RUS will be able to spot check the general accuracy and reliability of the tests. Estimate of Burden: This collection of information is estimated to average 1 hour per response. Respondents: Not-for-profit institutions; business or other for profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 25. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1,600. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 40,000 hours. Copies of this information collection can be obtained from Rebecca Hunt, Program Development and Regulatory Analysis, at (202) 205–3660, FAX: (202)720–8435 or email: Rebecca.hunt@ wdc.usda.gov.

Apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance

AGENCY: Economic Development Administration, Department of Commerce.

ACTION: Notice and Opportunity for Public Comment.

    Pursuant to Section 251 of the Trade Act 1974, as amended (19 
U.S.C. 2341 et seq.), the Economic Development Administration (EDA) has 
received petitions for certification of eligibility to apply for Trade 
Adjustment Assistance from the firms listed below.

[[Page 21438]]

Accordingly, EDA has initiated investigations to determine whether 
increased imports into the United States of articles like or directly 
competitive with those produced by each of these firms contributed 
importantly to the total or partial separation of the firm's workers, 
or threat thereof, and to a decrease in sales or production of each 
petitioning firm.
