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

Pursuant to section 9503 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, the Surface Transportation Extension Act of 2004 (STEA04), Part V, 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 title 26, United States Code, 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 Supplemental Minimum Guarantee Program for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2004, is $2,747,582,877 which is 100 percent of the amount authorized to be made available from the Highway Trust Fund.

Second, pursuant to Division H, section 168 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2004, I have determined that it will be necessary to deduct .59 percent from the amount authorized to be appropriated for the Supplemental Minimum Guarantee Program, and I have deducted said .59 percent from the sum of $2,747,582,877 authorized to be appropriated from the Highway Trust Fund pursuant to Section 12(f) of the STEA04, Part V. The resulting amount authorized to be apportioned for fiscal year ending September 30, 2004 is $2,731,372,138.

Third, pursuant to the provisions of section 154(c) of title 23, United States Code, the Open Container Requirements, 3 percent of the amount required to be apportioned to the States of Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming will be transferred to the apportionment of the State under section 402 of title 23, United States Code, from the programmatic distribution of the Supplemental Minimum Guarantee Program.

Fourth, pursuant to the provisions of section 164(b) of title 23, United States Code, the Minimum Penalties for Repeat Offenders for Driving While Intoxicated or Driving Under the Influence, 3 percent of the amount required to be apportioned to Alaska, California, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming will be transferred to the apportionment of the State under section 402 of title 23, United States Code, from the programmatic distribution of the Supplemental Minimum Guarantee Program.

Fifth, that after making the deductions and transfers, I have computed the apportionments to each State and the District of Columbia of the amount authorized to be appropriated for the Minimum Guarantee Program in the manner provided by law in accordance with the formula in section 105 of title 23, United States Code and pursuant to the STEA04, Part V, Division F of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2004, and title 26, United States Code, section 9503(d) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.

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