Enacted in 1998, the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) is
the primary authorization for this appropriation account. WIA
authorization expired on September 30, 2003. The Act is intended to revitalize the Nation’s job training system to provide workers with the information, advice, job search assistance, and training they need to get and keep good jobs, and
to provide employers with skilled workers. Funds appropriated for this account generally are available on a July
to June program year basis, and substantial advance appropriation amounts are provided.
Adult employment and training activities.—Grants to provide financial assistance to States and territories to design
and operate training and employment assistance programs
for adults, including low-income individuals and public assistance recipients.
Dislocated worker employment and training activities.—
Grants to provide reemployment services and retraining assistance to individuals dislocated from their employment.
Youth activities.—Grants to support a wide range of activities and services to prepare low-income youth for academic
and employment success, including summer jobs. The program links academic and occupational learning with youth
development activities.
Reintegration of Ex-Offenders.—Supports activities to help
individuals exiting prison make a successful transition to community life and long-term employment. The 2008 Budget
merged the Prisoner Re-entry and Responsible Reintegration
of Youthful Offenders programs into a single program that
would provide mentoring and job training to promote the

to increase State flexibility to administer the programs, require that a greater percentage of resources be directed to
training services for workers instead of administrative overhead, increase individual choice by offering ‘‘Career Advancement Accounts,’’ streamline the performance accountability

aged 55 and over. The program was deemed ‘‘Ineffective’’ by
a Performance Assessment Rating Tool assessment, due to
inadequate competition in the grants process, lack of data
on program performance and impact, and duplication with
other Federal programs. While the Older Americans Act
Amendments of 2006 (P.L. 109–365) reauthorized and made
some improvements in Title V of the Older Americans Act,
the program still suffers from inadequate competition and
low levels of performance in getting participants into unsubsidized employment. The Department of Labor conducted a
one-time competition of its national grants (which represent
a little more than three-quarters of program funding) in 2006,
but the Older Americans Act Amendments prohibited competition beyond the current pool of national grantees until 2010.
In program year 2006, the program fell short of its targets
for placement in employment, placing less than one-third.

Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) demonstration program of wage insurance for older workers.
The authorization for the TAA for Workers program expired
December 31, 2007, but the fiscal year 2008 consolidated appropriations act provided funding at a level sufficient to keep
the program operating through September 2008. This appropriation has the effect of continuing the full operation of
the program, including issuing certifications of eligibility for
new groups of workers after December 31, 2007, through fiscal year 2008. The Administration supports continuation of
the TAA for Workers program. The budget request for this
account provides sufficient funds to continue the TAA for
Workers program through fiscal year 2009, including issuing
certifications for new workers, and to cover the phase-out
costs of the ATAA demonstration program.

While the benefits of trade are broadly spread across our
economy, some American workers are adversely affected by
new competition in certain industries. The Administration
recognizes that the Federal Government has a responsibility
to help workers who have been adversely impacted by trade
to obtain the retraining and interim benefits they need. Trade
Adjustment Assistance (TAA) is an important part of our
Nation’s efforts to target these workers with reemployment
services that will help them transition to good jobs with good
wages.
The Administration strongly supports TAA reauthorization
that includes needed reforms to help workers adversely affected by trade access the training and reemployment services
they need to return to work quickly. These reforms include
the following principles. Trade impacted workers must have:
(1)increased individual choice to ‘‘earn and learn’’ through
the TAA program; (2) improved access to education and training; (3) access to education and training prior to a tradeimpacted layoff; and (4) access to services through a streamlined and efficient workforce investment system.

ensure full funding of the increases, either of these adjustments would only be permissible if the base level for reemployment and eligibility assessments was funded at $10 million and if the use of the funds was clearly restricted to

Unemployment
compensation.—State
administration
amounts provide administrative grants to State agencies
which pay unemployment compensation to eligible workers
and collect State unemployment taxes from employers. These
agencies also pay unemployment benefits to former Federal
personnel and ex-servicemembers as well as trade readjustment allowances to eligible individuals. State administration
amounts also provide administrative grants to State agencies
to improve the integrity and financial stability of the unemployment compensation program through a comprehensive
performance management system, UI Performs. The purpose
is to effect continuous improvement in State performance and
related activities designed to assess and reduce errors and
prevent fraud, waste, and abuse in the payment of unemployment compensation benefits and the collection of unemployment taxes. National activities relating to the Federal-State
unemployment insurance programs are conducted through
contracts or agreements with the State agencies or with nonState entities. A workload reserve is included in State administration to meet increases in the costs of administration resulting from increases in the number of claims filed and
claims paid. The appropriation automatically provides additional funds whenever unemployment claims workload increases above budgeted levels.
The request for additional funding for in-person reemployment and eligibility assessments of claimants of unemployment compensation builds upon the success of a number of
States in reducing improper payments and speeding reemployment using these assessments. Because most unemployment claims are now filed by telephone or Internet, in-person
assessments conducted in the One-Stop Career Centers can
help determine continued eligibility for benefits and adequacy
of work search, verify the identity of beneficiaries where there
is suspicion of possible identify theft, and provide referral
to reemployment assistance to those who need additional help.
The $40 million requested for additional reemployment and
eligibility assessments is estimated to provide benefit savings
of $155 million. It is important that this integrity initiative
and other new enforcement investments be fully funded. The
Administration is proposing to fund them as contingent appropriations. To ensure full funding of reemployment and eligibility assessments, the Administration proposes to employ a
budget enforcement mechanism that allows for an adjustment
by the Budget Committees to the section 302(a) allocation
to the Appropriations Committees found in the concurrent
resolution on the budget. In addition, the Administration will

Employment service.—The public employment service is a
nationwide system providing no-fee employment services to
job-seekers and employers. State employment service activities are financed by State grants distributed under a demographically based funding formula. Employment service allotments are funded on a program year basis running from
July 1 through June 30 of the following year. In 2009, the
Administration proposes to terminate the Employment Service State grants program, which duplicates the services provided under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) programs
and uses a costly, separate delivery system.
Employment service activities serving national needs, including foreign labor certification, are conducted through specific reimbursable agreements between the States and the
Federal Government under the Wagner-Peyser Act, as amended, and other legislation. Starting with fiscal year 2009, all
funding for foreign labor certification activities will be requested in a new account, Foreign Labor Certification Administration. States also receive funding under this activity for
administration of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, as well
for amortization payments for those States that had independent retirement plans prior to 1980 in their State employment service agencies.
One-stop career centers.—These funds are used to support
the joint Federal-State efforts to improve the comprehensive
One-Stop system created under WIA. This system provides
workers and employers with quick and easy access to a wide
array of enhanced career development and labor market information services.

The Administration will repropose legislation to reform the
Workforce Investment Act (WIA). The legislation will seek
to increase State flexibility to administer the programs, require that a greater percentage of resources be directed to
training services for workers instead of administrative overhead, increase individual choice by offering ‘‘Career Advancement Accounts,’’ streamline the performance accountability
system, and increase the funds available for training by requiring State matching funds. The proposal will consolidate
the Adult, Dislocated Worker, Youth Activities, Employment
Service State grants, Work Opportunity Tax Credit, and labor
market information grants into a single State grant to facilitate coordination and eliminate duplication in the provision
of services. The new consolidated grant will be shown in the
Training and Employment Services account.

This account provides repayable advances to the Black
Lung Disability Trust Fund for making payments from that
fund whenever its balances prove insufficient. The funding
requested in this appropriation for 2009 is entirely for Black
Lung. This spending authority is presented as authority to
borrow in the Black Lung Disability Trust Fund.
This account may also provide advances to several other
accounts to pay unemployment compensation to eligible individuals under various Federal and State unemployment compensation laws whenever the balances in those accounts prove
insufficient or whenever legislation allows reimbursements to
be made. Advances made to the Federal Employees Compensation Account in the Unemployment Trust Fund and to
the Federal Unemployment Benefits and Allowances account
are nonrepayable, as are certain reimbursements to the Extended Unemployment Compensation Account (EUCA), as allowed by law. All other advances made to the Federal Unemployment Account and to EUCA (both in the Unemployment
Trust Fund) are repaid, with interest, to the general fund
of the Treasury.

Workers Compensation Programs.—Section 5011 of Public
Law 109–148 made $50,000,000 available to the New York
State Uninsured Employers Fund for reimbursement of claims
related to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the
United States and for reimbursement of claims related to
the first response emergency services personnel who were
injured, were disabled, or died due to such terrorist attacks.
f

This account provides for the administration of the foreign
labor certification programs within the Employment and
Training Administration. Under these programs, U.S. employers that can demonstrate a shortage of qualified, available
U.S. workers and that there would be no adverse impact
on similarly situated U.S. workers may seek the Secretary
of Labor’s certification as a first step in the multi-agency
process required to hire a foreign worker to fill critical permanent or temporary vacancies. Major programs include the permanent, H–2A temporary agricultural, H–2B temporary nonagricultural and temporary highly skilled worker visas. The
account is divided into Federal and State activities.
Federal Administration.—Provides leadership, policy, and
operational direction to Federal activities supporting the effective and efficient administration of foreign labor certification
programs.
State grants.—Provides grants to State labor agencies in
54 States and U.S. territories funding employment-related
activities required for the administration of Federal foreign
labor certification programs. Includes State Workforce Agency
posting and circulation of job orders and other assistance
to employers in the recruitment of U.S. workers, processing
of employer requests for prevailing wage determinations for
the permanent and temporary programs, State processing of
H–2A agricultural and H–2B non-agricultural temporary
labor certification applications, State safety inspection of
housing provided by employers to workers, and State development of prevailing wage and prevailing practice surveys used
to set wages and standards in a defined geographic area.

FOREIGN LABOR CERTIFICATION ADMINISTRATION
For the administration of foreign labor certifications and related
activities under the Immigration and Nationality Act and related
laws, $77,970,000, of which $59,497,000 shall be available for the
Federal administration of such activities, and of $18,473,000 shall
be available for grants to States for the administration of such activities.

The 2009 Budget proposes legislation to establish cost-based
user fees for new applications under the permanent and H–
2B temporary foreign labor certification programs, and proposes legislation to allow the Department to retain fees for
applications under the H–2A temporary labor certification
program and modify the fee to cover program costs. The fees
would offset the State and Federal costs of administering
these programs, and once fully implemented would eliminate
the need for appropriations for this purpose. Upon enactment
of the fee, requests for funding in the Foreign Labor Certification administration account would be reviewed and adjusted.

The financial transactions of the Federal-State and railroad
unemployment insurance systems are made through the Unemployment Trust Fund. All State and Federal unemployment tax receipts are deposited in the Trust Fund and invested in Government securities until needed for benefit payments or administrative expenses. The portion of the Trust
Fund funded with Federal taxes provides repayable advances
(loans) to the States when the balances in their individual
State accounts are insufficient to pay benefits. The Trust
Fund may receive repayable advances from the general fund
when it has insufficient balances to make advances to States
or to pay the Federal share of extended unemployment benefits.
State payroll taxes pay for all regular State unemployment
benefits. During periods of high State unemployment, there
is a stand-by program of extended benefits, financed onehalf by State unemployment taxes and one-half by the Federal unemployment payroll tax, which are also paid out of
the Trust Fund. In addition, the Federal unemployment tax
pays the costs of Federal and State administration of the
unemployment insurance system, veterans employment servVerDate Aug 31 2005

ices, surveys of wages and employment, and about 97 percent
of the costs of the Employment Service.
The Federal Employees Compensation Account (FECA) provides funds to States for unemployment compensation benefits
paid to eligible former Federal civilian personnel, Postal Service employees, and ex-servicemembers. In turn, the various
Federal agencies reimburse FECA for benefits paid to their
former employees. Any additional resources necessary to assure that the FECA account can make the required payments
to States will be provided from the Advances to the Unemployment Trust Fund and Other Funds account.
Both the benefit payments and administrative expenses of
the separate unemployment insurance program for railroad
employees are paid from the Unemployment Trust Fund, and
receipts from a tax on railroad payrolls are deposited into
the Trust Fund to meet expenses.

The Administration will repropose legislation to reform the
Workforce Investment Act (WIA). The legislation will seek
to increase State flexibility to administer the programs, require that a greater percentage of resources be directed to
training services for workers instead of administrative overhead, increase individual choice by offering ‘‘Career Advancement Accounts,’’ streamline the performance accountability
system, and increase the funds available for training by requiring State matching funds. The proposal will consolidate
the Adult, Dislocated Worker, Youth Activities, Employment
Service State grants, Work Opportunity Tax Credit, and labor
market information grants into a single State grant to facilitate coordination and eliminate duplication in the provision
of services. The new consolidated grant will be shown in the
Training and Employment Services Account.

This wholly owned government corporation administers
mandatory insurance programs to prevent loss of pension benefits under covered private, defined-benefit pension plans if
single-employer plans terminate or if multiemployer plans are
unable to pay benefits.
Single employer benefit payment.—The single-employer program protects about 33.8 million participants. The number
of plans increased slightly from 28,800 pension plans in 2006
to 28,900 in 2007. Under this program, a company may voluntarily seek to terminate its plan, or Pension Benefit Guaranty
Corporation (PBGC) may seek termination under certain circumstances. The PBGC must seek termination when a plan
cannot pay current benefits. A plan that cannot pay all benefits may be ended by a ‘‘distress’’ termination, but only if
the employer meets tests proving severe financial distress,
for example, the liklihood that continuing the plan would
force the company to shut down. If the terminated plan cannot pay at least the PBGC-guaranteed benefits, the PBGC
uses its funds to ensure guaranteed benefits are paid.
In a ‘‘standard’’ termination, plan assets must be sufficient
to pay all benefits before the plan is allowed to end. That
payment is in the form of an annuity purchased from an
insurance company or a lump sum payment. After the payment is made, the PBGC guarantee ends.

Multi-employer financial assistance.—The multiemployer insurance program protects about 10.0 million participants, up
from 9.9 million participants in 2006. The number of plans
decreased from 1,600 in 2006 to 1,530 in 2007. Multiemployer
pension plans are maintained under collectively bargained
agreements involving unrelated employers, generally in the
same industry. If a PBGC-insured multiemployer plan is unable to pay guaranteed benefits when due, the PBGC will
provide the plan with financial assistance to continue paying
guaranteed benefits, ordinarily in the form of a loan to the
plan.
Pension insurance activities.—Includes premium collections,
premium investments, pre-trusteeship work, and pension insurance program protection activities.
Pension plan termination.—Includes all activities related to
trusteeship; plan asset management, investment and accounting; and benefit administration services.
Operational support.—Includes the administrative, information technology infrastructure, and other shared program support for both PBGC’s insurance and plan termination activities.

As of September 30, 2007, PBGC’s single-employer and multiemployer programs reported deficits of $13.1 billion and
$955 million, respectively. While the PBGC has sufficient liquidity to meet its obligations for a number of years, neither
the single-employer nor multiemployer program has the resources to satisfy fully the agency’s long-term obligations to
plan participants. Legislation will be proposed in 2009 to
adjust the insurance premiums that pension plans pay to
PBGC. The Administration will propose to give PBGC Board
the authority to raise premiums to produce the revenue necessary to meet expected future claims and retire PBGC deficit
over ten years. These reforms will improve PBGC financial
condition and safeguard the future benefits of American workers.

Enforcement of wage and hour standards.—The Wage and
Hour Division works to obtain and encourage compliance with
the minimum wage, overtime, child labor, and other employment standards under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA),
the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act
(MSPA), the Family and Medical Leave Act, certain provisions
of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), the wage garnishment provisions in Title III of the Consumer Credit Protection Act, and the Employee Polygraph Protection Act. Prevailing wages are determined and employment standards are
also enforced under various Government contract wage standards. In 2009, approximately 300,000 persons are expected
to be aided under the FLSA through securing agreements
with firms to pay back wages owed to their workers. In government contract compliance actions, about 20,000 persons
will be aided through securing agreements to pay wages owed
to workers. Under MSPA, approximately 1,400 investigations
will be completed. In the course of all on-site investigations,
investigators will routinely check for employer compliance
with child labor standards, and over 1,200 targeted child labor
investigations will be conducted. In all ‘‘directed’’ (non-complaint) investigations, investigators will also routinely check

for compliance with the employment eligibility verification
recordkeeping requirements of the INA.
Federal contractor equal employment opportunity (EEO)
standards enforcement.—The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) enforces equal employment opportunity and nondiscrimination requirements of Federal contractors and subcontractors. In particular, OFCCP enforces:
Executive Order 11246, which prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, color, and national
origin; Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the
Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (through a memorandum of understanding with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), which prohibit employment discrimination against individuals with disabilities; and the Vietnam
Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, which prohibits employment discrimination against certain protected veterans. OFCCP programs cover close to
100,000 work-sites with a total workforce of 12 million persons. OFCCP monitors contractors’ compliance through compliance evaluations, with a focus on systemic discrimination
cases, and reporting requirements. In 2009, approximately
2,500,000 individuals will be covered through 7,700 compliance evaluations, 175 complaint investigations, and 2,400
other compliance actions. OFCCP also ensures that Federal
contractors and subcontractors are provided linkages to recruitment sources for hiring and advancement of minorities,
women, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities,
and will conduct 600 complaince assistance events in FY
2009. OFCCP also honors Federal contractors and other organizations through the Secretary of Labor Opportunity Awards
and the EVE/EPIC program for their outstanding compliance
initiatives.
Labor-management standards.—The Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) receives and discloses reports of
unions and others in accordance with the Labor Management
Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA), including union financial reports; audits union financial records and investigates possible embezzlements of union funds; conducts union
officer election investigations; supervises reruns of union officer elections pursuant to voluntary settlements or after court
determinations that elections were not conducted in accordance with the LMRDA; and administers the statutory program to certify employee protection provisions under various
Federally-sponsored transportation programs. In 2009, OLMS
plans enhanced efforts to advance union transparency and
financial integrity protections, primarily through increased
union audits and compliance assistance efforts. OLMS expects
to process 35,000 reports and conduct a total of 4,783 investigations, audits, and supervised elections. In 2009, the Department will submit proposed legislation authorizing OLMS
to use civil monetary penalties to enforce reporting provisions
of the LMRDA.
Federal programs for workers’ compensation.—The Office
of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) administers the
Federal Employees’ Compensation Act, the Longshore and
Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, the Energy Employees
Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act, and the
Black Lung Benefits Act. These programs ensure that eligible
disabled and injured workers or their survivors receive compensation and medical benefits and a range of services including rehabilitation, supervision of medical care, and technical
and advisory counseling to which they are entitled.
Program direction and support.—The Program Direction
and Support (PDS) activity provides centralized leadership,
policy, coordination, and essential administrative support in
the areas of human resources, information technology; budget
and financial management; strategic planning; performance

Federal Employees’ Compensation Act benefits.—The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act program provides monetary and medical benefits to Federal workers who sustain
work-related injury or disease. Not all benefits are paid by
the program, since the first 45 days of disability are usually
covered by keeping injured workers in pay status with their
employing agencies (the continuation-of-pay period). In 2009,
134,000 injured Federal workers or their survivors are projected to file claims; 50,000 are projected to receive longterm wage replacement benefits for job-related injuries, diseases, or deaths. Most of the costs of this account are charged
back to the beneficiaries’ employing agencies.

The Administration will repropose legislation to improve
the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), which has
not been substantially updated since 1974. The legislative
proposal would amend FECA to convert prospectively retirement-age beneficiaries to a retirement-level benefit; impose
an up-front waiting period for benefits; streamline claims
processing; permit DOL to recapture additional compensation
costs from responsible third parties; authorize DOL to crossmatch FECA records with Social Security records to reduce
improper payments; and make other changes to improve and
update FECA. These changes would generate net Government-wide savings of $377 million.

Energy Employees’ Compensation Act benefits.—The Department of Labor is delegated responsibility to adjudicate and
administer claims for benefits under the Energy Employees
Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000
(EEOICPA). In July 2001, the program began accepting
claims from employees or survivors of employees of the Department of Energy (DOE) and of private companies under
contract with DOE who suffer from a radiation-related cancer,
beryllium-related disease, or chronic silicosis as a result of
their work in producing or testing nuclear weapons. The Act
authorizes a lump-sum payment of $150,000 and reimbursement of medical expenses.
The Ronald Reagan National Defense Authorization Act of
2005 (P.L. 108–767) amended EEOICPA, giving DOL responsibility for a new program (Part E) to pay workers’ compensation benefits to DOE contractors and their families for illness
and death arising from toxic exposures in DOE’s nuclear
weapons complex. This law also provides compensation for
uranium workers covered under section 5 of the Radiation
Exposure Compensation Act. Benefit payments under Part
E began in 2005.

Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 (EEOICPA) administration.—Under Executive Order 13179 the Secretary of Labor is assigned primary
responsibility for administering the EEOICPA program, while
other responsibilities have been delegated to the Departments
of Health and Human Services (HHS), Energy (DOE), and
Justice (DOJ). The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs
(OWCP) in the Department of Labor (DOL) is responsible
for claims adjudication, and award and payment of compensation and medical benefits. DOL’s Office of the Solicitor provides legal support and represents the Department in claimant appeals of OWCP decisions. HHS is responsible for developing individual dose reconstructions to estimate occupational
radiation exposure, and developing regulations to guide DOL’s
determination of whether an individual’s cancer was caused
by radiation exposure at a DOE or atomic weapons facility.
DOE is responsible for providing exposure histories at employment facilities covered under the Act, and other employment
information. DOJ assists claimants who have been awarded
compensation under the Radiation Exposure Compensation
Act to file for additional compensation, including medical benefits, under EEOICPA. To improve transparency and accountability, the 2009 Budget requests that administrative funding
for HHS’ EEOICPA activities be directly appropriated to
HHS, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Ronald Reagan National Defense Authorization Act of
2005 (P.L. 108–767) amended EEOICPA, giving DOL responsibility for a new program (Part E) to pay workers’ compensation benefits to DOE contractors and their families for illness
and death arising from toxic exposures in DOE’s nuclear
weapons complex. This law also provides compensation for
uranium workers covered by the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. Administrative expenses for Part E are covered
through indefinite, mandatory appropriations provided in P.L.
108–767.

Title IV of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act authorizes monthly benefits to coal miners disabled from coal workers’ pneumoconiosis (black lung) and to their widows and
certain other dependents. Part B of the Act assigned the
processing and paying of claims filed between December 30,
1969 (when the program originated) and June 30, 1973 to
the Social Security Administration (SSA). P.L. 107–275 transferred Part B claims processing and payment operations from
SSA to the Department of Labor’s Employment Standards
Administration, Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs.
This change was implemented on October 1, 2003.

The trust fund consists of all moneys collected from the
coal mine industry under the provisions of the Black Lung
Benefits Revenue Act of 1981, as amended by the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, in the form
of an excise tax on mined coal. These moneys are expended
to pay compensation, medical, and survivor benefits to eligible
miners and their survivors, where mine employment terminated prior to 1970 or where no mine operator can be assigned liability. In addition, the fund pays all administrative
costs incurred in the operation of Part C of the Black Lung
program. The fund is administered jointly by the Secretaries
of Labor, Treasury, and Health and Human Services. The
Benefits Revenue Act provides for repayable advances to the
fund in the event fund resources will not be adequate to
meet program obligations. Such advances are to be repaid
with interest. The outstanding debt has increased from $1,510
million in 1981 to $9,980 million in 2007. It is estimated
to be $10,408 million in 2008 and $10,832 million in 2009
if the refinancing proposal is not enacted.

The Black Lung Disability Trust Fund’s revenues, which
are derived primarily from coal excise taxes, are insufficient
to repay the $10 billion debt it owes to Treasury. Under
current conditions, the Trust Fund’s debt could never be repaid. The 2009 Budget reproposes legislation to restructure
the Trust Fund debt and restore the Fund’s solvency. Proposed reforms would (1) refinance the outstanding debt; (2)
extend the current excise tax levels until solvency is attained;
and (3) provide for a one-time appropriation to compensate
the General Fund for forgone interest payments.

and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), as amended.
These trust funds are available for payments of additional
compensation for second injuries. When a second injury is
combined with a previous disability and results in increased
permanent partial disability, permanent total disability, or
death, the employer’s liability for benefits is limited to a
specified period of compensation payments after which the
fund provides continuing compensation benefits. In addition,
the fund pays one-half of the increased benefits provided
under the LHWCA for persons on the rolls prior to 1972.
Maintenance payments are made to disabled employees undergoing vocational rehabilitation to enable them to return
to remunerative occupations, and the costs of necessary rehabilitation services not otherwise available to disabled workers
are defrayed. Payments are made in cases where other circumstances preclude payment by an employer and to provide
medical, surgical, and other treatment in disability cases
where there has been a default by the insolvency of an uninsured employer.

Safety and health standards.—This activity provides for the
development, promulgation, review and evaluation of feasible
occupational safety and health standards and guidance. Before any standard is proposed or promulgated, a determination is made that: (1) a significant risk of serious injury
or health impairment exists; (2) the standard will reduce this
risk; (3) the standard is economically and technologically feasible; and (4) the standard is economically and technologically
feasible when compared with alternative regulatory proposals
providing equal levels of protection. Regulatory reform efforts
include consensus-based rulemaking, development of common
sense regulations, rewriting existing standards so they are
understandable to those affected by them, and regulatory and
non-regulatory process improvements.
Federal Enforcement.—This activity provides for the enforcement of workplace standards promulgated under the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act of 1970, through
the physical inspection of worksites, and by fostering the voluntary cooperation of employers and employees. Programs are
targeted to the investigation of claims of imminent danger
and employee complaints, investigation of fatal and catastrophic accidents, programmed inspections of firms with injury-illness rates that are above the national average, and
special emphasis inspections for serious safety and health
hazards. OSHA’s enforcement strategy ranges from a selective
targeting of inspections and related compliance activities to
specific high hazard industries and worksites.
State programs.—This activity assists States in assuming
responsibility for administering occupational safety and
health programs under State plans approved by the Secretary.
Under section 23 of the OSH Act, grants matching up to
fifty percent of total program costs are made to States that
meet the Act’s criteria for establishing and implementing
State programs which are at least as effective as the associated Federal program. State programs, like their Federal
counterparts, provide a mix of enforcement, outreach, training
and compliance assistance activities.
Technical support.—This activity provides specialized technical expertise and advice in support of a wide range of program areas, including construction, standards setting, variance determinations, compliance assistance, and enforcement.
Areas of expertise include laboratory accreditation, industrial

hygiene, occupational health nursing, occupational medicine,
chemical analysis, equipment calibration, safety engineering,
environmental impact statements, technical and scientific
databases, computer-based outreach products, and emergency
preparedness.
Compliance assistance-Federal.—This activity supports a
range of cooperative programs, training, and outreach that
provide compliance assistance in improving workplace safety
and health, with particular emphasis on small business.
OSHA works with employers and employees through Voluntary Protection Programs that recognize and promote effective safety and health management; partnerships focusing on
the development of extended cooperative relationships; and
alliances committing organizations to collaborative efforts
with OSHA. Federal agencies are assisted in implementing
and improving their job safety and health programs. Occupational safety and health training is provided at the OSHA
Training Institute and affiliated Education Centers throughout the country. Compliance and technical assistance materials are prepared and disseminated to the public through
various means, including the Internet.
State consultation grants.—This activity supports 90 percent Federally funded cooperative agreements with designated
State agencies to provide free on-site consultation to employers upon request. State agencies tailor workplans to specific
needs in each State while maximizing their impact on injury
and illness rates in smaller establishments. These projects
offer a variety of services, including safety and health program assessment and assistance, hazard identification and
control, and training of employers and their employees.
Training grants.—This activity supports safety and health
training grants to organizations that provide training and
education and develop educational materials for employers
and employees. Grants address safety and health education
needs related to specific topics and industries identified by
the agency. The 2009 Budget eliminates funding for these
grants, and focuses on more cost-effective compliance assistance approaches.
Safety and health statistics.—This activity supports the information technology infrastructure, management information, and statistical basis for OSHA’s programs and field operations. These are provided through an integrated data network, and statistical analysis and review. OSHA administers
and maintains the recordkeeping system that serves as the
foundation for the BLS survey on occupational injuries and
illnesses and provides guidance on recordkeeping requirements to both the public and private sectors.
Executive direction and administration.—This activity supports executive direction, planning and evaluation, management support, legislative liaison, interagency affairs, Federal
agency liaison, administrative services, and budgeting and
financial control.

Enforcement.—The enforcement strategy in 2009 will be an
integrated approach that links all actions to preventing occupational injuries and illnesses. These include inspection of
mines as mandated by the Federal Mine Safety and Health
Act of 1977, special emphasis initiatives that focus on persistent safety and health hazards, promulgation of Federal
mine safety and health standards, investigation of serious
accidents, and on-site education and training. The desired
outcome of these enforcement efforts is to lower fatality and
injury rates in our Nation’s mines.
Assessments.—This activity assesses and collects civil monetary penalties for violations of safety and health standards.
Educational policy and development.—This activity develops
and coordinates MSHA’s mine safety and health education
and training policies, and provides classroom instruction at
the National Mine Health and Safety Academy for MSHA
personnel, other governmental personnel, and the mining inVerDate Aug 31 2005

Office of Disability Employment Policy.—This office provides
leadership in developing policy to eliminate employment barriers to people with disabilities. It works within the Department of Labor (DOL) and in collaboration with other Federal
agencies to develop policy based on research and analysis
of specific areas of policy inquiry in employment, training
and retraining, recruitment, retention, and employment support services. ODEP then disseminates its findings through
technical assistance to public and private sector entities.
In a recent Program Assessment Rating Tool assessment,
ODEP was rated ‘‘results not demonstrated,’’ largely due to
insufficient performance and evaluation data to assess the
impact and effectiveness of ODEPs policy and coordination
efforts. ODEP’s responsibilties have also expanded in recent
years to include a grant making function, supporting activities
that extend beyond ODEP’s original mission and are duplicative of activities undertaken by other Federal agencies. The
Budget supports ODEP’s original mission of bringing a
heightened focus on disability employment within DOL
through policy development, technical assistance, and dissemination of best practices.

The Office of Job Corps supports the administration and
management of the Job Corps program, which helps at-risk
youth who need and can benefit from intensive education
and training services to become more employable, responsible,
and productive citizens. The program operates in a group
setting at 122 centers, residential in 48 States, the District
of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Two new
centers are currently under construction in Iowa and New
Hampshire.
The program serves economically disadvantaged youth,
aged 16–24, who must also be one or more of the following:
basic skills deficient; a school dropout; homeless, a runaway,
or a foster child; a parent; or in need of additional education,
vocational training, or intensive counseling and related assistance in order to participate successfully in regular schoolwork
or to secure and hold employment. The program serves more
than 60,000 individuals per year.
In response to a mandate in the Departments of Labor,
Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies
Appropriations Act, 2006 (Public Law 109–149), the Secretary
of Labor issued Secretary’s Order 09–2006 which established
the Office of Job Corps within the Office of the Secretary
(OSEC) and delegated authority and assigned responsiblity
to the Director of the Office of Job Corps and other agency
heads to ensure the effective administration of the Job Corps
program. Job Corps funding, appropriated to the Employment
and Training Administration (ETA) in 2006, was transferred
to OSEC via an allotment process. This funding mechanism
continued in 2007 under the Revised Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2007 (Public Law 110–5). The Consolidated
Appropriations Act, 2008 (Public Law 110–161) appropriated
Job Corps funding to the Office of Job Corps. Funding for
the Job Corps program is now shown in the Office of Job
Corps appropriation account for all years.
The 2009 Budget proposes to transfer the Job Corps program and administrative funding back to ETA to better coordinate the program wih other employment and training programs ETA oversees.

Program activities.—The Office of Inspector General (OIG)
conducts audits, investigations, and evaluations that improve
the effectiveness, efficiency, and economy of departmental programs and operations. It addresses DOL program fraud and
labor racketeering in the American workplace, provides technical assistance to DOL program agencies, and advice to the
Secretary and the Congress on how to attain the highest
possible program performance. The Office of Audit performs
audits of the Department’s financial statements, programs,
activities, and systems to determine whether information is
reliable, controls are effective, and resources are safeguarded.
It also ensures funds are expended in a manner consistent
with laws and regulations, and with achieving the desired
program results. The Office of Labor Racketeering and Fraud
Investigations conducts investigations to detect and deter
fraud, waste, and abuse in departmental programs. It also
identifies and reduces labor racketeering and corruption in
employee benefit plans, labor management relations, and internal union affairs. The significant increase in the number
of investigations completed in FY 2007 is due to single claimant unemployment investigations conducted following the
2005 hurricanes. The number of investigations being planned
for FY 2009 reflects an expansion of the OIG’s labor racketeering program to focus on foreign labor certification-related
immigration fraud, Gulf Coast reconstruction and construction
contracts, and Unemployment Insurance fraud.

Jobs for Veterans State grants.—The Jobs for Veterans Act
(JVA) of 2002 provides the foundation for this budget activity.
The JVA requires the Veterans Employment and Training
Service (VETS) to promulgate policies and regulations that
ensure maximum employment and training opportunities for
veterans and priority of service for veterans within the State
workforce delivery system. Under the JVA, resources are allocated to States to support Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) specialists and Local Veterans’ Employment
Representatives (LVERs).
Disabled Veterans Outreach Program specialists (38 U.S.C.
4103A) provide intensive services to meet the employment
needs of eligible veterans. DVOP places maximum emphasis
on helping economically or educationally disadvantaged veterans. Priority of service (38 U.S.C. 4215) is given to special
disabled veterans, other disabled veterans, and other eligible
veterans.
Local Veterans’ Employment Representatives (38 U.S.C.
4104) conduct outreach to employers as well as assist veterans in gaining employment by conducting job search workshops and establishing job search support groups. LVERs also
facilitate employment, training, and placement services provided to veterans under the applicable State employment
service delivery system, including One-Stop Career Centers.
In addition, each LVER provides reports to the manager of
the State employment service delivery system and to the
State Director for Veterans Employment and Training (38
U.S.C. 4103) regarding the State’s compliance with Federal
law and regulations with respect to special services and priorities for eligible veterans.
The State grants budget activity also supports the Transition Assistance Program (TAP). VETS coordinates with the
Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, and Homeland Security to provide transition assistance to military
servicemembers separating from active duty. TAP is implemented worldwide and provides labor-market and employment-related information and other services to separating
servicemembers. The goal of TAP is to expedite and facilitate
the transition from military to civilian employment.
Federal management.—VETS’ Federal management (38
U.S.C. 4102–4103A) budget activity carries out programs and
develops policies to meet the employment and training needs
of veterans. Based upon the most recent cost accounting data,
the majority of VETS’ Federal management resources are
dedicated to Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights (USERRA) compliance and outreach activities,
whereby VETS investigates complaints to help veterans, reservists, and members of the National Guard obtain their
employment and reemployment rights (38 U.S.C. 4301 et
seq.). Veterans’ Preference activities, which are intended to
assist veterans obtain Federal employment (39 U.S.C. 4214),
are also supported under this activity.
Resources under this activity are also used to operate a
national ‘‘Hire Veterans First’’ campaign that helps employers
find job-ready veterans and sponsors many career fairs for
veterans around the country. Funding is also used to evaluate
the job training and employment assistance services provided
to veterans and to support field activities and personnel who
provide technical assistance to States to ensure they meet
negotiated performance goals. VETS’ staff works with States
to provide incentive awards for outstanding performance (38
U.S.C. 4112). This budget activity also funds outreach and
education efforts, such as job fairs, that raise the awareness
of employers about the benefits of hiring veterans.

TRAINING—Continued

The REALifeLines initiative facilitates timely and comprehensive employment services to our Nation’s severely
wounded and injured veterans.
National Veterans’ Employment and Training Services Institute.—The National Veterans’ Training Institute (NVTI) supplies competency-based training to Federal and State providers of services to veterans (38 U.S.C. 4109). NVTI is administered through a contract and supported by dedicated
funds. NVTI ensures that these service providers receive a
comprehensive foundation so they can effectively assist jobseeking veterans.
Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program.—The Homeless
Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP) (38 U.S.C. 2021)
provides grants to States or other public entities, as well
as to non-profits, including faith-based organizations. Grant
awards enable grantees to operate employment programs to
reach out to homeless veterans and help them become employed. VETS partners with the Departments of Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development to promote multiagency-funded programs that integrate the different services
needed by homeless veterans. HVRP grants are provided for
both urban and rural areas.
Veterans’ Workforce Investment Program.—The Veterans’
Workforce Investment Program (VWIP) (Section 168 of P.L.
105–220) provides competitive grants geared toward training
and retraining to create employment opportunities for veterans in high-skill occupations, and to meet employer demands.
