Background. On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the Recovery Act into Law. Part of the Recovery Act, the TGAAA reauthorized and made substantial changes to the TAA program. The TGAAA amended Section 236(a)(2)(A) of the Trade Act to increase the cap on TAA training funds from $220 million to $575 million annually in both FY 2009 and FY 2010 and capped training funds for the first quarter of FY 2011 (October 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010) at $143,750,000, consistent with a projected annual allocation of $575 million under the expected reauthorization of the Act. The TGAAA further amended Section 236(a)(2)(B) and (C) of the Trade Act to: • Require 35, rather than 25 percent of the training funds to be held in reserve; • Provide for a ‘‘hold harmless’’ of 25, rather than 85 percent; • Set timelines for the distribution of training funds; and • Establish specific formula factors that the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) must consider in making those distributions. The final regulations that govern these provisions, 20 CFR 618.900—618.940, went into effect April 2, 2010, with the publication of 20 CFR 618 ‘‘Trade Adjustment Assistance; Merit Staffing of State Administration and Allocation of Training Funds to States; Final Rule.’’ Although the Recovery Act reauthorized the TAA program and raised the cap on training funds, it did not appropriate any funds for the TAA program. Rather, the Consolidated Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009, Public Law 111–8, appropriated TAA administrative and program funds to the Federal Unemployment Benefits and Allowances (FUBA) account. The FY 2010 distributions of funds under TEGL 9–09 were FUBA appropriations. The E:\FR\FM\20DEN1.SGM 20DEN1
