CERTIFICATE OF APPORTIONMENT FROM
THE SUM OF $4,797,620,000
FOR THE SURFACE TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM
AUTHORIZED TO BE APPROPRIATED
FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING SEPTEMBER 30, 1998

TO--

The Secretary of the Treasury of the United States and the State Highway Agencies:

Pursuant to section 9503 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, 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 section 9503(d) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and based on that estimate, I have determined that the amount which can be apportioned for the Surface Transportation Program for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, is $4,797,620,000 which is 100 percent of the amount authorized to be appropriated for that Program for that fiscal year pursuant to section 1101(a)(4) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century.

Second, that in compliance with section 104(a) of title 23, United States Code, I have estimated that it will be necessary for administering the provisions of title 23, United States Code, to deduct 1.45 percent from the amount authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, for the Surface Transportation Program and I have deducted said 1.45 percent from the sum of $4,797,620,000 authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, by section 1101(a)(4) of the Transportation Equity Act of the 21st Century.

Third, that pursuant to sections 104(d)(1) and 104(d)(2) of title 23, United States Code, I have set aside $5,750,000 in total from the sums authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, for the Surface Transportation Program by section 1101(a)(4) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century to carry out section 104(d)(1) and 104(d)(2) of title 23, United States Code.

Fourth, that pursuant to sections 140(b) and 140(c) of title 23, United States Code, I have set aside $20,000,000 in total from the sums authorized to be appropriated for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, for the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century to carry out section 140(b) and 140(c) of title 23, United States Code.

Fifth, that in compliance with section 1103(e) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, and after making the deduction authorized by section 104(a) of title 23, United States Code, I have deducted one percent of the sums remaining from the authorization of $4,797,620,000 for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1998, for the purposes of carrying out section 134 of title 23, United States Code.

Sixth, that under the provisions of section 153(h) of title 23, United States Code, 3 percent of the amount required to be apportioned to New Hampshire is reserved. If the State fails to achieve the national safety belt average use rate by the end of fiscal year 1998, the reserved funds will be transferred to the State's 402 apportionment.

Seventh, that after making the deductions, set aside, and reservation, I have computed the apportionment among the several States and the District of Columbia of the remainder of the amount authorized to be appropriated for the Surface Transportation Program in the manner provided by law in accordance with the formula in section 104(b)(3) of title 23, United States Code.

Eighth, that subject to the foregoing deductions, set aside, and reservation, the sums which are hereby apportioned to each State and the District of Columbia, effective immediately are respectfully as follows:
