  1. What is the purpose of this Notice? The purpose of this Notice is to advise of the redistribution of FY 2000 obligation authority to the States as provided under Section 1102(d) of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) and the Department of Transportation and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2000, Public Law 106-69.
  2. How much authority was returned? A total of $216 million of obligation authority is available for redistribution for FY 2000.
  3. How much authority was requested? The States requested a total of $5.6 billion in additional obligation authority for FY 2000.
  4. How is the returned authority redistributed? The attached table shows the redistribution of returned obligation authority to each State. The amounts are to be redistributed in accordance with the requirements of Section 1102(d) of TEA-21 so that priority will be given to those States having large unobligated balances of funds apportioned: (1) under Sections 104 and 144 of Title 23, United States Code, (2) under Section 160 of Title 23, United States Code (as in effect on the day before the date of enactment of this Act) and, (3) under Section 1015 of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991.
  5. Does this redistribution require any adjustments? Yes, revised FY 2000 apportionment Notices are being issued along with this Notice that made minimal adjustments to the Interstate Maintenance, National Highway System, Surface Transportation Program, Minimum Guarantee, and Revenue Aligned Budget Authority resulting from the adjustments in Highway Trust Fund contributions. These adjustments are based on corrections resulting from an under reporting of 1997 motor fuel data (the most current data upon which FY 2000 apportionments are based). United States Comptroller General decisions require that incorrect apportionments need to be appropriately adjusted to assure compliance with the statutory formula for apportioning Federal Highway funds enacted by Congress. Comptroller General opinion B-275490 (December 5, 1996); 41 Comp. Gen. 16 (1961). The adjustments to these apportionments have a nominal effect on the distribution of FY 2000 obligation limitation. The minor adjustments are reflected in the redistribution of obligation authority provided at this time. Also, the FY 2000 revised special limitation associated with the Minimum Guarantee apportionment is shown on the attachment.
  6. What action is required? Division Administrators should ensure that any obligation authority available to a State for FY 2000 that cannot be used by the end of the fiscal year is returned immediately to Washington Headquarters for redistribution to other qualifying States.
