TO--

The Secretary of the Treasury of the United States and the State Agencies responsible for the Recreational Trails Program:

Pursuant to section 9503 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, title 23, United States Code, and the delegation of authority from the Secretary of Transportation to the Federal Highway Administrator in section 1.48, 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 that can be apportioned for the Recreational Trails Program for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2003, pursuant to section 1101(a)(7) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, is $50,000,000, which is 100 percent of the amount authorized to be appropriated for the Program for the fiscal year.

Second, pursuant to Division N, section 601, of the Consolidated Appropriations Resolution, 2003 (P.L. 108-7), which includes the Department of Transportation and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2003, I have determined that it will be necessary to deduct .65 percent from the amount authorized to be appropriated for fiscal year ending September 30, 2003, for the Recreational Trails Program, and I have deducted said .65 percent from the sum of $50,000,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2003, by section 1101(a)(2) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century. The resulting amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2003, is $49,675,000.

Third, pursuant to section 104(h)(1) of title 23, United States Code, I have deducted 1.5 percent from the sum of $49,675,000 authorized to be appropriation for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2003, by section 1101(a)(7) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century and Division N, section 601 of the Consolidated Appropriations Resolutions, 2003 (P.L. 108-7), for the purposes of carrying out the provision of section 206 of title 23, United States Code.

Fourth, that after making the deductions, I have computed the apportionment to each State and the District of Columbia of the remainder of the amounts authorized to be appropriated for the Recreational Trails Program in the manner provided by law in accordance with the formula set forth in section 206 of title 23, United States Code.

Fifth, that subject to the foregoing deduction, the sums that are hereby apportioned to each State and the District of Columbia, effective immediately, are respectively as follows:
