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 the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1996, is $891,587,079 which is 100 per centum of the amount authorized to be appropriated for the Program for that fiscal year pursuant to section 1003(a)(4) of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 after taking a proportionate reduction as required by section 1003(c) of such statute.
Second, that in compliance with section 104(a) of title 23, United State Code, I have estimated that it will be necessary for administering the provisions of title 23 and for highway research and studies, to deduct 3.75 per centum from the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1996, for the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program and I have deducted said 3.75 per centum from the sum of $891,587,079 authorized to be appropriated for fiscal year endingSeptember 30, 1996, by section 1003(a)(4) of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991.

Fourth, that after making the deductions, I have computed the apportionment among the several States, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico of the remaining of the amounts authorized to be appropriated for the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program in the manner provided by law in accordance with the formula set forth in section 104(b)(2) of title 23, United States Code.
Fifth, that such sums are adjusted as required by section 1003(c) of Public Law 102-240.
Sixth, that subject to the foregoing deductions, the sums which are hereby apportioned to each State, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, effective immediately are respectively as follows:
