Pursuant to the provisions of the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2007, Pub. L. No. 109-289, Division B, as amended by the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2007, Pub. L. No. 109-369, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2007, Pub. L. No. 109-383, and the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2007, Pub. L.

The funds are being provided to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

  3. What is the availability of these funds?

    1. The Bridge Program funds resulting from this apportionment are available for obligation through September 30, 2010. Any amounts not obligated by the State on or before September 30, 2010, shall lapse.

    2. The funds resulting from this apportionment are available for obligation immediately and will be subject to obligation controls in force at the time of obligation.

    3. The Federal share for all projects, except those on the Interstate System, will be according to Section 120(b) of Title 23, United States Code (U.S.C.). For those on the Interstate System, the Federal share will be according to Section 120(a) of Title 23, U.S.C.

    4. The program codes to be used when obligating these funds are L110 and L1C0.

  4. What is the background information? Section 1101(a)(3) of the SAFETEA-LU authorizes a total $4,320,411,313 in contract authority for the Bridge Program for FY 2007. The total contract authority available for distribution in FY 2007 net of these reductions is $4,150,866,471.

    1. The Continuing Appropriations Resolution, Pub. L. No. 110-5, applies a percentage share takedown of $118,034,865 of the amount apportioned for the Bridge Program. This reduces the amount authorized for the Bridge Program by $15,539,701.

    2. Section 104(f) of Title 23, U.S.C., applies a 1.25 percent takedown from the amount authorized for the Bridge Program. This provision reduces the amount apportioned by $54,005,141.

Green Airport). Bridge Program funds may be expended for replacement, rehabilitation, painting, performing systematic preventive maintenance or seismic retrofit of, or applying anti-icing or de-icing compositions to, eligible highway bridge projects. The Secretary of Transportation, after consultation with State and local officials may, with respect to a State, reduce the requirement for expenditure for bridges not on the Federal-aid highway system when the Secretary determines that the State has inadequate needs to justify the expenditure.

No. 109-383, I have determined that it will be necessary to deduct a percentage share of $118,034,865 from the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2007, for the Bridge Program. I have deducted $15,539,701 from the sum of the $4,320,411,313 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2007.

Third, pursuant to Section 104(f) of Title 23, United States Code, I have deducted 1.25 percent from the sum of $4,320,411,313 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2007, 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 $54,005,141.

Fourth, pursuant to Section 144(g) of Title 23, United States Code, and after making deductions authorized by Section 104(f) of Title 23, United States Code, I have set aside $100,000,000 from the sum of $4,320,411,313 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2007, 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.

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.
