Title: Trade Adjustment Assistance for Workers Program; Regulations

Abstract: The Trade and Globalization Assistance Act of 2009 (Act), division 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), which continues to require that the Secretary issue regulations to carry out these provisions.
