legislative update
Legislative Update
  • 2 issues at present
    • Highway Trust fund is going broke
      • We have authority and limitation, just nothing in the account to cash the check with.
      • DOT is implementing reduced state reimbursements beginning August 1
      • No effect on TTP except possible Safety funds (app process)
    • MAP-21 expires in 71 days
  • Best case scenario is legislative fix to both issues;
    • Both houses have a proposal
    • Extension will be until either December or May (House)
    • Congress in session only for a few more days
    • Midterm elections are in 105 days
2 issues impacting ttp
2 Issues impacting TTP
  • Expiration of current highway act (MAP-21)
  • Requires Congressional action
  • Extension of Act or reauthorization still requires action on the highway fund insolvency
  • Insolvency of Highway Trust Fund
  • Requires Congressional action
  • Not enough cash on hand to support full annual program
  • Limits amount of cash available to reimburse commitments
  • Unique features of TTP
  • Contracts allow different drawdowns depending on agreement type
