Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century CEAL October 17, 2012
Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) 1991-1997 ($147B) Transportation Equity Act for the 21 st Century (TEA-21) 1998 – 2004 ($218B) Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) 2005 – 2011 ($286.4B) Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) 2013-2014 ($109B)
Ensure the financial integrity of the Highway and Transit Trust Funds Rebuild and maintain transportation infrastructure in good state of repair Establish goods movement, as a national priority Enhance mobility through congestion relief within and between metropolitan areas Strengthen the federal commitment to safety and security, particularly with respect to rural roads and access Strengthen comprehensive environmental stewardship Streamline Project Delivery
Two year Program Level funding levels No earmarks Consolidation and removal of programs Change in funding distribution Emphasis on State of Good Repair, Performance Measures and Asset Management
Interstate Maintenance National Highway System Highway Bridge Program Equity Bonus Appalachian Highway Development System Border Infrastructure Program Surface Transportation Program (STP) Safe Routes to Schools Recreational Trails Former Formula Programs National Highway Performance Program (NHPP – New) - $21.8 billion Surface Transportation Program - $10 billion Transportation Alternatives - $800 million Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)- $2.4 billion Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality (CMAQ)- $2.2 billion TIFIA Loan Program - $1 billion MAP-21Core Program Structure Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality Highway Safety Improvement Program TIFIA Loan Program Transportation Enhancements (10% of STP) 15% For Off-System Bridges Former Formula Programs Restructuring of Core Highway Programs Under the Final 2012 Transportation Bill (MAP-21)
Urbanized Area & Growing States Job Access & Reverse Commute Rural Area Grants Elderly & Disabled New Freedom Bus & Bus Facilities Fixed Guideway & Modernization New Starts Alternative Analysis Former Core Programs Urbanized Areas - $4.758 billion Rural Are Grants - $609 million Elderly & Disabled - $591 million State of Good Repair - $2.136 billion Bus & Bus Facilities - $422 million New Starts - $1.907 billion TOD Planning Grants - $10 million MAP-21Core Program Structure
FHWA provides Guidance for Interstate and National Highway System (NHS) FTA provides rulemaking for Transit
Highway versus Transit Highway Standards are more straightforward Transit Standards are more varied, operation needs, facility elements, infrastructure etc. Clear standards need to be developed.
Lump sum total at federal level for all apportioned programs States total share apportionment calculated Total share divided by program at state level
California the only state with Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Delegation on Highway Projects. Option now available for all States as well as Transit Projects Through via Federal Transit Administration (FTA)
Funded at $10B a year Closely follows current STP, preserving current Federal Aid capital projects (transit, bike, ped, and highway.) 50% of funds to be sub-allocated based on population; remainder used in any area of State
Continues program, funded at $2.2B a year. A flexible funding source to State and local governments for transportation projects and programs to help meet the requirements of the Clean Air Act.
Incorporated in Surface Transportation Program (STP) No dedicated Freight or Border funding. Higher Federal Share Only Highway projects National Strategic Freight Plan States are recommended to create state freight plans and freight advisory committees.
Funded at $450M per year TTP replaces Indian Reservation Roads (IRR) Formula: 27% on eligible road miles 39% on tribal population 34% divided based on SAFTEA-LU Tribal Shares for IRR The new formula is to be phased in over a 4-year transition period with funds distributed based on tribal shares in FY 2011, with remainder using the new formula.
Consolidation of several ADA, pedestrian and bicycle programs. Includes Safe Routes to Schools, Transportation Enhancement, and Recreational Trails. Program reduces funding by 32% for California for the 2013 Fiscal Year (From $106M to $72M) More competitive grants for Local Agencies
New Programs Safety (5329) State of Good Repair Grants (5337) Consolidated Programs Urbanized Area Formula Grants (5307) Repealed Programs Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) (5316) Modified Programs Fixed Guideway Capital Investment Grants (5309)
Remains a competitive grant program Streamlined process Funded at $1.9B, subject to sequester
Greater emphasis on TIFIA usage. 2013 $750M 2014 $1B Emphasis on long term Financial Planning TIFIA assistance must be repaid through dedicated revenue sources that secure project obligations, such as tolls, other user fees, or payments received under a public-private partnership agreement
2013 Fiscal year maintain funding level Goal to align MAP-21 funding types to existing State distributions for 2013, keeping funded projects programmed. Future federal guidance and state legislation to address 2014 changes currently being developed. Transition to performance and outcome based program.

Establishing Funding approaches and Schedules Freight Guidance likely to set tone for federal funding beyond MAP-21
Alignment with California Consensus State Flexibility More Emphasis on State of Good Repair Performance Measures Guidance and Rulemaking to follow Sets tone for future Transportation Bills
