CERTIFICATE OF APPORTIONMENT FROM THE SUM OF
$3,395,354,000 AUTHORIZED TO BE APPROPRIATED
FOR THE BRIDGE PROGRAM
FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING SEPTEMBER 30, 1999

TO--

The Secretary of the Treasury of the United States and the State Transportation Agencies:

Pursuant to title 23, United States Code, the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, 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, 1999, is $3,395,354,000 which is 100 percent of the amount authorized to be appropriated for that fiscal year by section 1101(a)(3) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century.

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, United States Code, to deduct 1.50 percent from the sum of $3,395,354,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1999, and I have deducted said 1.50 percent.

Third, that in compliance with section 1103(e) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, and after making the deduction authorized by section 104(a) of title 23, United States Code, I have deducted one percent of the sum remaining from the authorization of $3,395,354,000 for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1999, for the purpose of carrying out section 134 of title 23, United States Code.

Fourth, that pursuant to section 144(g)(1)(B) of title 23, United States Code, I have set aside $100,000,000 from the sum of $3,395,354,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1999, for the discretionary bridge program to carry out section 144(g)(1)(B) of title 23, United States Code.

Fifth, that after making said deductions and set aside, I have computed the apportionment among the States and the District of Columbia of the remainder of the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1999, in the manner provided by section 144(e) of title 23, United States Code.

Sixth, that subject to the foregoing deductions and set aside, the sums which are hereby apportioned to each State and the District of Columbia, effective immediately are respectively as follows:
