                temporary extended unemployment compensation account by 
                reason of section 203(c) of such Act (commonly known as 
                ``TEUC-X amounts'') before the date of enactment of 
                this Act shall be treated as amounts deposited by 
                reason of section 203(b) of such Act (commonly known as 
                ``TEUC amounts''), as amended by subsection (a).

                        the amendments made by this Act shall be 
                        disregarded; and
                            (ii) any such determination shall instead 
                        be made by applying section 203(c) of such Act, 
                        as amended by this Act--
                                    (I) as of the time that all amounts 
                                established in such account in 
                                accordance with section 203(b) of such 
                                Act (as amended by this Act, and

                                subparagraph (A)) are in fact 
                                exhausted, except that
                                    (II) if such individual's account 
                                was both augmented by and exhausted of 
                                all TEUC-X amounts before the date of 
                                enactment of this Act, such 
                                determination shall be made as if 
                                exhaustion (as described in section 
                                203(c)(1) of such Act) had not occurred

        In''; and
            (2) by adding at the end the following:
    ``(b) Insured Unemployment Rate.--For purposes of carrying out 
section 203(c) with respect to weeks of unemployment beginning on or 
after the date of enactment of this subsection, the term `rate of 
insured unemployment', as used in section 203(d) of the Federal-State 
Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 1970 (26 U.S.C. 3304 note), 
has the meaning given such term under section 203(e)(1) of such Act, 
except that individuals exhausting their right to regular compensation 
during the most recent 3 calendar months for which data are available 
before the close of the period for which such rate is being determined 
shall be taken into account as if they were individuals filing claims 
for regular compensation for each week during the period for which such 
rate is being determined, and section 203(d)(1)(A) of such Act shall be 
applied by substituting `either (or both)' for `each'.''.
    (b) Additional Extended Benefit Period Trigger.--
            (1) In general.--Section 203(c) is amended by adding at the 
        end the following:

                compensation for weeks of unemployment beginning on or 
                after the date of enactment of this paragraph, an 
                agreement under this title shall provide that, in 
                addition to any other extended benefit period trigger, 
                for purposes of beginning or ending any extended 
                benefit period under this section--
                            ``(i) there is a State `on' indicator for a 
                        week if--

                                the most recent 3 months for which data 
                                for all States are published before the

                        (I) or (II) of clause (i) are not satisfied.
                    ``(B) No effect on other determinations.--
                Notwithstanding the provisions of any agreement 
                described in subparagraph (A), any week for which there

                continue to be such a week and shall not be determined 
                to be a week for which there is a State `off' 
                indicator.
