  1. Does this Notice cancel FHWA Notice 4510.426? Yes, this Notice cancels FHWA Notice 4510.426, Supplementary Tables - Apportionment Authorized for Fiscal Year (FY) 2000, dated October 22, 1999.

United States Comptroller General decisions require that incorrect apportionments need to be appropriately adjusted to assure compliance with the statutory formula for apportioning Federal Highway funds enacted by Congress.
