Title: Regulations Implementing the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act: Recreational Vessels 
Abstract: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 amended the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, 33 U.S.C. 901 to 950, to exclude from the Act's coverage certain employees who repair recreational vessels and who dismantle them for repair, regardless of the vessel's length. To implement this amendment, the Department anticipates proposing a rule that addresses the definition of recreational vessel, coverage of those employees who work in both covered employment and employment excluded under the amendment, and the interplay between State workers' compensation coverage and Longshore Act coverage for those who repair recreational vessels and who dismantle them for repair.
