CERTIFICATE OF APPORTIONMENT FROM
THE SUM OF $80,000,000 AUTHORIZED TO BE APPROPRIATED
FOR THE RECREATIONAL TRAILS PROGRAM
FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING SEPTEMBER 30, 2008

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 Recreational Trails Program for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2008, pursuant to subsection 1101(a)(8) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, is $80,000,000, which is 100 percent of the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year.

Second, pursuant to Section 104(h)(1) of Title 23, United States Code, I have determined that it will be necessary to deduct $840,000 from the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2008, by Section 1101(a)(8) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, for administrative, research, technical assistance, and training expenses of the Recreational Trails Program under Section 206 of Title 23, United States Code, and I have deducted said amount from the sum of $80,000,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2008, by Section 1101(a)(8) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users. The resulting amount is $79,160,000.

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 Recreational Trails Program in the manner provided by law in accordance with the formula set forth.

Fourth, 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:
