19 U.S. Code § 2342 - Approval of adjustment proposals
A firm certified under section 2341 of this title as eligible to apply for adjustment assistance may, at any time within 2 years after the date of such certification, file an application with the Secretary for adjustment assistance under this part. Such application shall include a proposal for the economic adjustment of such firm.
Whenever the Secretary determines that any firm no longer requires assistance under this part, he shall terminate the certification of eligibility of such firm and promptly have notice of such termination published in the Federal Register. Such termination shall take effect on the termination date specified by the Secretary.
1986—Subsec. (b)(1). Pub. L. 99–272, § 13006(a)(1), amended par. (1) generally. Prior to amendment, par. (1) read as follows: “Adjustment assistance under this part consists of technical assistance and financial assistance, which may be furnished singly or in combination. The Secretary shall approve a firm’s application for adjustment assistance only if he determines—
“(A) that the firm has no reasonable access to financing through the private capital market, and
“(B) that the firm’s adjustment proposal—
“(i) is reasonably calculated materially to contribute to the economic adjustment of the firm,
“(ii) gives adequate consideration to the interests of the workers of such firm, and
“(iii) demonstrates that the firm will make all reasonable efforts to use its own resources for economic development.”
Subsecs. (c), (d). Pub. L. 99–272, § 13006(a)(2), redesignated subsec. (d) as (c) and struck out former subsec. (c) which authorized the Secretary to assist an eligible firm in the preparation of a viable adjustment proposal.
