2  Full title: Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century  Enacted July 2012  Authorized $118 billion  Expires September 30,

3  SPR … 2% of major core programs with 25% mandated for research activities  FHWA … about $400 million annually  Highway Research & Development Program  Technology & Innovation Deployment Program  ITS Research  Training & Education  Cooperative Research Programs for Transit & Freight 3

4  RITA programs  Bureau of Transportation Statistics  Intelligent Transportation Systems  National Transportation Library  Positioning, Navigation & Timing  Research, Development & Technology  Transportation Safety Institute  University Transportation Centers  Volpe National Transportation Systems Center 4

5  Issue #1 – Highway Trust Fund solvency  FHWA has already informed state DOTs of possible changes in reimbursement procedures starting in August unless HTF is replenished  Issue #2 – MAP 21 expiration  No federal funding is authorized or appropriated for highway and transit past September 30,

6  US House on July 15 passes HTF fix & MAP 21 extension by vote  Provides general fund transfer to HTF  Extends MAP 21 through May 31, 2015  Senate action on HTF fix / MAP 21  Action possible this week  Some consideration of shorter MAP 21 extension 6

7  GROW AMERICA – administration proposal  About 10-15% funding increase over MAP 21  Stable funding for research programs  Senate Environment & Public Works Committee  About 0-3% funding increase over MAP 21  Reduced funding for FHWA research programs  House has not introduced bill 7

8  Just a concept – no current bill  Major decrease in federal commitment  Federal gas tax & other revenues slashed  Feds support only core system (interstates?)  States would face decisions on whether to increase revenue to support all highway & transit functions at current levels 8

9  SPR funding formula appears stable across MAP 21 extension and reauthorization proposals  UTC funding appears stable in reauthorization proposals; not certain how extension works  FHWA research program funding in flux in Senate Bill; AASHTO Board of Directors passed resolution in favor of full funding 9
