Trade Adjustment Assistance for Workers, Workforce Investment Act; Amendment of Regulations
On August 6, 2002, President Bush signed into law the Trade Adjustment Assistance Reform Act of 2002 (the Reform Act), which amended the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (Act or Trade Act). The Reform Act reauthorized the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program through fiscal year 2007 and made significant amendments to the TAA program, which generally took effect on November 4, 2002. The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) of the United States Department of Labor (Department or DOL) is publishing this proposed rule to implement the amended TAA program.
Implementing the Salary and Bonus Limitations in Public Law 109-234
This notice provides information regarding implementing salary and bonus limitations in Public Law 109-234. It is directed to all Employment and Training Administration (ETA) grantees, contractors and other recipients of ETA appropriated funds. The purpose of this Notice is to inform States and other ETA-fund recipients and sub-recipients of a new limitation on salary and bonus payments that can be made with funds appropriated to ETA and provide guidance on implementing this new provision.
Proposed Collection; Comment Request
The Department of Labor (DOL), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden conducts a pre- clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to insure that requested data can be provided in the desired format; reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized; collection instruments are clearly understood; and the impact of collection on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning the proposed extension of the collection of administrative and survey data on the Growing America Through Entrepreneurship project 1205-0444, expires December 31, 2006). A copy of the proposed information collection request (ICR) can be obtained by contacting the office listed below in the address section of this notice or at this Web site: http://www.doleta.gov/Performance/guidance/ OMBControlNumber.cfm.
