The Secretary of the Treasury of the United States and the State departments of transportation:

Pursuant to title 23, United States Code, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, section 9503 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, and the delegation of authority from the Secretary of Transportation to the Acting 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 that can be apportioned for the Bridge Program for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2005, pursuant to section 1101(a)(3) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, is $4,187,708,821, which is 100 percent of the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year.

Second, pursuant to Division H, title I, section 117, of Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005, Pub. L. No. 108-447, I have determined that it will be necessary to deduct 4.1 percent from the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2005, from the Bridge Program. I have deducted said 4.1 percent from the sum of $4,187,708,821 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2005, section 1101(a)(3) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users. The amount deducted is $171,696,062.

Third, pursuant to section 104(f) of title 23, United States Code, I have deducted 1.25 percent from the sum of $4,187,708,821 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2005, by section 1101(a)(3) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, for the purpose of carrying out section 134 of title 23, United States Code. The amount deducted is $52,346,360.

Fourth, pursuant to section 144(g) of title 23, United States Code, and after making deductions authorized by Division H, title I, section 117, of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005, Pub. L. No.108-447 and section 104(f) of title 23, United States Code, I have set aside $100,000,000 from the sum of $4,187,708,821 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2005, by section 1101(a)(3) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, for the purpose for carrying out section 144 of title 23, United States Code. The resulting amount is $3,863,666,399.

Fifth, that after making the deductions and set aside, 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 Bridge Program in the manner provided by law in accordance with the formula set forth.
