Determination of Commissioner Lynn M. Bragg
Wheat Gluten, Inv. No. TA-204-4
March 21, 2001

I determine that extension of relief is necessary to prevent or remedy serious injury to the domestic industry. I also determine that there is evidence that the domestic industry is making a positive adjustment to import competition.

I note that my determinations reflect concerns set forth in my Separate and Additional Views in the Commission's mid-term monitoring report on the domestic wheat gluten industry. I continue to find that problems associated with the implementation of the remedy have significantly diminished the effectiveness of quota relief. As a result, the remedy has not provided the minimum level of relief necessary to address the serious injury to the domestic industry. Extension of relief is therefore necessary to allow the domestic industry to fully implement its adjustment efforts and thereby make a positive adjustment to import competition.
