DOL/ETA RIN: 1205-AB57 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: Trade Adjustment Assistance for Workers Program; Regulations 
Abstract: The Trade and Globalization Assistance Act of 2009 (Act), Div. B, Title I, Subtitle I of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, reauthorizes the Trade Adjustment Assistance for Workers program. More specifically, the law amends the criteria for certification of worker groups as eligible to apply for benefits and services and substantially expands those benefits and services. It also requires reports on the program's effectiveness. The Act amends section 248 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2320) and requires that the Secretary issue regulations to carry out these provisions.

Statement of Need: The Trade and Globalization Adjustment Assistance Act of 2009 (TGAAA) is the portion of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) (Pub. L. No. 111-5, Div. B, Title I, Subtitle I) that reauthorized and substantially amended the Trade Adjustment Assistance for Workers (TAA) program. Significant program changes enacted in the TGAAA include amending the certification criteria to expand the types of workers who may be certified and expanding the available program benefits. This proposed rule is important because it will update the programís regulations to be in concert with the notable program changes wrought by the TGAAA.

Summary of the Legal Basis: These regulations are authorized by sections 248 of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2320), as amended by the TGAAA.

Alternatives: The public will be afforded an opportunity to provide comments on the proposed regulatory changes when the Department publishes the NPRM in the Federal Register. A final rule will be issued after analysis of, and response to, public comments.

Anticipated Costs and Benefits: Preliminary estimates of the anticipated costs of this regulatory action have not been determined at this time and will be determined at a later date.
