Date: 2017-10-20

Through this final rule, the Economic Development Administration (``EDA''), U.S. Department of Commerce, eliminates the regulations implementing the Community Trade Adjustment Assistance (``CTAA'') Program. Established in 2009 under the Trade Act of 1974, the CTAA Program was subsequently eliminated by Congress in 2011. Implementing regulations for this now-defunct Program are thus unnecessary. This final rule is a ``deregulatory action'' pursuant to the April 5, 2017, Office of Management and Budget (``OMB'') guidance memorandum implementing Executive Order 13771.
