On November 17, 2008, United States Steel Corporation amended the Long-Term
Incentive Compensation Program (the "LTI Program") Administrative Regulations to
its 2005 Stock Incentive Plan.  The amendment provides that, in the case of a
participant's death or disability, all unvested stock options, restricted stock
and restricted stock unit awards will vest immediately.  Previously, the
Administrative Regulations provided that a prorated number of unvested awards
would vest depending upon the number of months worked during the current vesting
period.  The revision will be applied to all outstanding and prospective stock
options, restricted stock and restricted stock unit awards under the LTI

Also, the method for prorating unvested performance awards was modified in the
case of a death or disability.  Additionally, the definition of retirement under
the LTI Program was amended to conform to the retirement definition under the
participant's applicable retirement plan/program for his or her home country.

A copy of the administrative regulations is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1.
