Final Rule Uniform Act Amendments

The FHWA Office of Real Estate Services published a Final Rule affecting the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Regulations for Federal and Federally Assisted Programs in the Federal Register, Friday, February 12, 1999 (Vol 64, No. 29, Page 7127).

This final rule implements the amendments to the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act (Uniform Act), 42 U.S.C. 4601-4655, that were made by Public Law 105-117, enacted on November 21, 1997. The amendments concerned the ineligibility, with certain exceptions, of an alien not lawfully present in the United States for relocation payments and assistance under the Uniform Act.

Background relating to the passage of these amendments and the FHWA's role as lead agency for the Uniform Act is discussed in some detail in the preamble to the Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) published in the Federal Register on June 12, 1998 (63 FR 32175). The NPRM discussion is available from: Notice of Proposed Rule Making - Uniform Relocation Assistance. Locate text of the Final Rule at the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) at Uniform Act Relocation Assistance Final Rule. In either case, scroll almost to the bottom of the page to find the heading: Transportation Department.
