TO--

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 Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, Title 23, United States Code, and the delegation of authority from the Secretary of Transportation to the 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 Safe Routes to School Program for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2007, pursuant to Section 1101(a)(17) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, is $125,000,000, which is 100 percent of the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year.

Second, in compliance with Section 1404(c) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, I have determined that it will be necessary for administering the provisions of Section 1404 of such Act, to deduct $3,000,000 from the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2007, pursuant to Section 1101(a)(17) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users. I have deducted $3,000,000 from the sum of $125,000,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2007, under Section 1101(a)(17) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users. The resulting amount is $122,000,000.

Third, that after making the deduction, 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 Safe Routes to School Program in the manner provided by law in accordance with the formula set forth under Section 1404 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users.
