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

  • 92% of TTP funds are subject to Tribal Shares

Reauthorization summary

Reauthorization Summary

  • Act still needs full vote by the Senate
