The Trade Act of 2002 (P. L. 107-210) amended the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U. S. C. 2551, et seq.) to add a new chapter, Chapter 6, which establishes a program of trade adjustment assistance for farmers. The statute authorizes an appropriation of not more than $90 million for each fiscal year 2003 through 2007 to carry out the program.
