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 that can be apportioned for the Surface Transportation Program for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2002, is $5,795,482,000, which is 100 percent of the amount authorized to be appropriated for that Program for that fiscal year pursuant to section 1101(a)(4) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century.

Second, that in compliance with section 104(a)(1) of title 23, United States Code, as amended, I have determined that it will be necessary for administering the provisions of title 23, United States Code, as amended, to deduct 1 1/6 percent from the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2002, for the Surface Transportation Program, and I have deducted said 1 1/6 percent from the sum of $5,795,482,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2002, by section 1101(a)(4) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century.

Fourth, that in compliance with section 104(f) 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 1 percent of the sums remaining from the authorization of $5,795,482,000 for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2002, for the purpose of carrying out section 134 of title 23, United States Code.

Fifth, that pursuant to sections 104(d)(1) and 104(d)(2) of title 23, United States Code, I have set aside $5,750,000 in total from the sums authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2002, for the Surface Transportation Program by section 1101(a)(4) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century to carry out sections 104(d)(1) and 104(d)(2) of title 23, United States Code.

Sixth, that pursuant to sections 140(b) and 140(c) of title 23, United States Code, I have set aside $20,000,000 in total from the sums authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2002, by the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century to carry out sections 140(b) and 140(c) of title 23, United States Code.
