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 USC 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because the petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn.

85,110, LMH Industries, Redmond, Oregon.
    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
in cases where these petitions were not filed in accordance with the 
requirements of 29 CFR 90.11. Every petition filed by workers must be 
signed by at least three individuals of the petitioning worker group. 
Petitioners separated more than one year prior to the date of the 
petition cannot be covered under a certification of a petition under 
Section 223(b), and therefore, may not be part of a petitioning worker 
group. For one or more of these reasons, these petitions were deemed 
invalid.

85,253, ArcSoft, Inc., Fremont, California.

    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.

85,063, EPIC Technologies, LLC., El Paso, Texas.
85,230, ITT Cannon, LLC., Santa Ana, California.

    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the Department issued a negative determination on petitions 
related to the relevant investigation period applicable to the same 
worker group. The duplicative petitions did not present new information 
or a change in circumstances that would result in a reversal of the 
Department's previous negative determination, and therefore, further 
investigation would duplicate efforts and serve no purpose.

85,258, Philips Electronics North America Corporation, Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania.

    I hereby certify that the aforementioned determinations were issued 
during the period of April 21, 2014 through April 25, 2014. These 
determinations are available on the Department's Web site tradeact/taa/
taa--search--form.cfm under the searchable listing of determinations or 
by calling the Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance toll free at 888-
