TO--

The Secretary of the Treasury of the United States and the State Highway Departments:

Pursuant to title 23, United States Code, the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991, section 9503 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, and the delegation of authority from the Secretary of Transportation to the Federal Highway Administrator, section 1.48 of title 49, Code of Federal Regulations, I certify--

First, that the Secretary of the Treasury has made the estimate required by section 9503(d) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and based on that estimate I have determined that the amount which can be apportioned for bridge replacement and rehabilitation for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1994, is $2,762,000,000 which is 100 per centum of the amount authorized to be appropriated for that fiscal year by section 1003(a)(5) of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991.

Second, that in compliance with section 104(a) of title 23, United States Code, I have estimated that it will be necessary for administering the provisions of title 23 and for highway research and studies, to deduct 3.50 per centum from the sum of $2,762,000,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1994, and I have deducted said 3.50 per centum.

Third, that in compliance with section 104(f)(1) of title 23, United States Code, and after making the deduction authorized by section 104(a) of title 23, United States Code, I have deducted one per centum of the sum remaining from the authorization of $2,762,000,000 for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1994, for the purpose of carrying out section 134of title 23, United States Code.

Fourth, that pursuant to section 144(g) of title 23, UnitedStates Code, I have set aside a total of $68,000,000 from the sum of $2,762,000,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1994, which includes $59,500,000 for the discretionary bridge program and $8,500,000 to carry out section 1039 of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991.

Fifth, that after making said deductions and set-aside, I have computed the apportionment among the States, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico of the remainder of the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1993, in the manner provided by section 144(e) of title 23, United States Code.

Sixth, that pursuant to section 144(g)(4) of title 23, United States Code, I have transferred $13,360,209 which is the total of one percent of the apportionment due to each State which has an Indian reservation within its boundaries to the Secretary of the Interior to carry out section 144(g)(4) of title 23, United States Code and an additional transfer of $472,750 as requested by the State of Arizona.
