Extended Earmarks for Bus and Bus Facility and New Starts Programs Appendix I. Overview This document apportions or allocates annual appropriations among potential program recipients. In addition, the document contains specific instructions or guidance for FTA programs and funding, in the ‘‘Transportation, Treasury, Housing and Urban Development, the Judiciary, the District of Columbia, and Independent Agencies Appropriations Act, 2006’’ (Pub. L. 109– 115, November 30, 2005; hereafter called the 2006 Appropriations Act). On November 30, 2005, the FTA Notice entitled ‘‘FTA Transit Program Changes, Authorized Funding Levels and Implementation of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users’’ was published in the Federal Register. That Notice contains information about FTA program guidance, requirements, period of availability, and other important information for FY 2006, and should be used together with this document. It can be found on the FTA Web site at http:// www.fta.dot.gov/2930_ENG_HTML.htm, and is also available for public comment on the DOT Docket Web site: http:// dms.dot.gov identified by DOT DMS Docket Number FTA–2005–23089. Two corrections to the November 30 Notice are included in this Notice. II. FY 2006 Funding for FTA Programs The three major FTA program areas included in the notice are formula and bus grants, capital investments, and research. Of the 17 separate FTA programs contained in this notice that fall under the major program area headings, the funding for 10 is PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4703 apportioned by statutory formula. Funding for the other seven is allocated on a discretionary or competitive basis. A. Funding Based on FY 2006 Appropriations Act The 2006 Appropriations Act provides funding from the General Fund of the Treasury and Mass Transit Account of the Highway Trust Fund that totals $8.59 billion for FTA programs. This amount is slightly less than the $8.62 billion authorized for FY 2006 in SAFETEA–LU. Table 1 shows the SAFETEA–LU authorized funding levels for transit programs. Table 2 of this document shows the appropriated funding levels for FTA programs for FY 2006. The 2006 Appropriations Act made funding available for the entire fiscal year. B. Apportionments and Allocations An apportionment or allocation table is included in this Notice for each program, except for the Section 5340 Growing States and High Density States Formula. The apportionments for this formula were combined with the Section 5307 or Section 5311 apportionments, as appropriate, and shown as a single amount, as directed by Congress in the SAFETEA–LU conference report. The amount shown in a table for an urbanized area, State, or specific project or recipient is available for obligation or award to a grant, under the respective FTA program. Because we combined Sections 5307 and 5340 apportionments as directed by Congress, we did not include in this Notice a separate breakout of the apportionment amounts to urbanized areas (UZAs) or States for Small Transit Intensive Cities (STIC) or for Section 5340 formulas. However, this information is available and may be obtained from the FTA regional offices for your UZA or State. Unless the law provides otherwise, earmarked project allocations for Clean Fuels, Bus and Bus Facility, New Starts, Alternative Analysis, and the National Research Program must conform to the eligibility requirements of the particular program. Prospective recipients are encouraged to contact the appropriate FTA regional office to discuss project eligibility. The regional office can provide technical assistance to help develop an eligible project. III. Specific Directions and Instructions in the 2006 Appropriations Act The 2006 Appropriations Act and accompanying conference report include instructions on the use or disposition of selected program funding, E:\FR\FM\20DEN2.SGM 20DEN2 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 243 / Tuesday, December 20, 2005 / Notices and on the use of funds for particular projects. These provisions are listed below, with supplemental information where appropriate. (1) The Appropriations Act transfers $47,766,000 from the Fixed Guideway Modernization program to New Starts for activities under that program. (2) The Appropriations Act transfers $25,215,000 available for the Clean Fuels program to the Bus and Bus Facility program. Of the $43,000,000 made available for the Clean Fuels program, $17,785,000 remains available for Clean Fuels projects authorized by SAFETEA–LU. (3) The Conference Report directs FTA not to reallocate funds designated for certain Bus and New Starts projects designated in FY 2003 and prior years. These extended earmarks are listed in Table 19, along with several other bus projects extended by previous Congressional action. (4) Section 113 provides that ‘‘notwithstanding any other provision of law, projects and activities described in the statement of managers accompanying this Act under the headings ‘‘Federal-Aid Highways’’ and ‘‘Federal Transit Administration’’ shall be eligible for fiscal year 2006 funds made available for the project for which each project or activity is so designated: Provided, That the Federal share payable on account of any such projects and activities subject to this section shall be the same as the share required by the Federal program under which each project or activity is designated unless otherwise provided in this Act.’’ This general provision makes the Section 5309 bus projects and activities designated in the FY 2006 conference report eligible for the purposes indicated. The specific bus and clean fuels projects designated in SAFETEA– LU are also eligible by virtue of being in statute. In some instances, FTA may approve use of the funds under the Section 5309 Bus and Bus Facilities or Clean Fuels program for eligible activities other than those designated in statute or report language upon clarification from the relevant House and Senate committees on authorization or appropriations respectively. (5) The New Starts project allocations listed in Table 12 include some projects which may not have yet conducted or completed alternatives analysis. Pursuant to SAFETEA–LU, FY 2006 New Starts funds may only be used for preliminary engineering, final design, and construction. A New Starts project designated to receive Section 5309 New Starts funds in the FY 2006 Appropriations Act must complete alternatives analysis and be approved by VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:05 Dec 19, 2005 Jkt 208001 FTA to enter preliminary engineering before expending FY 2006 New Starts funds for preliminary engineering. (6) Section 112 provides funding for activities eligible under Title 23 or Title 49 at 100 percent Federal share, and are available until expended. Surface Transportation Projects and Highway Priority Projects to be funded under this section are designated in the conference report. These earmarks include some transit projects, similar to Section 115 and Section 117 in the FY 2004 and FY 2005 appropriations acts. Recipients of designations for transit projects under Section 112 should initiate discussions with the appropriate FHWA division office to identify transit projects that may be administered by FTA and request that FHWA allot the funds to FTA. (7) Section 145 states that amounts made available from the bus category of the Capital Investment Grants Account or Discretionary Grants Account in this or any other previous Appropriations Act that remain unobligated or unexpended in a grant for a multimodal transportation facility in Burlington, Vermont, may be used for sitepreparation and design purposes of a multimodal transportation facility in a different location within Burlington, Vermont, than originally intended notwithstanding previous expenditures incurred for such purposes at the original location. (8) Section 146 provides that notwithstanding any other provision of law, funds designated in the conference report accompanying Public Law 108– 447 and Public Law 108–199 for the King County Metro Park and Ride on First Hill, Seattle, Washington, shall be available to the Swedish Hospital parking garage, Seattle, Washington, subject to the same conditions and requirements of section 125 of Division H of Public Law 108–447. (9) Section 147 provides that funds in this Act that are apportioned to the Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority to carry out section 5307 may be used to acquire land, equipment, or facilities used in public transportation from another governmental authority in the same geographic area. The non-Federal share under section 5307 may include revenues from the sale of advertising and concessions. (10) Section 148 provides that notwithstanding any other provision of law, any unobligated funds designated to the Jacksonville Transportation Authority, Community Transportation Coordinator Program under the heading ‘‘Job Access and Reverse Commute Grants’’ in the statement of the PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4703 75649 managers accompanying Public Law 108–199, may be made available to the Jacksonville Transportation Authority for any purpose authorized under the Job Access and Reverse Commute program. (11) Section 149 provides that notwithstanding any other provision of law, any funds made available to the South Shore Commuter Rail, Indiana, project under the Federal Transit Administration Capital Investment Grants Account in Division H of Public Law 108–447 that remain available may be used for remodernization of the South Shore Commuter Rail system. IV. Corrections The following corrections are made to information in the Federal Register published November 30, entitled ‘‘FTA Transit Program Changes, Authorized Funding Levels and Implementation of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users’’ (70 FR 71950 et seq.). 1. In the description of eligibility of intercity bus and intercity rail facilities in section IV part (A), subsection 4 ‘‘Intercity Bus and Intercity Rail’’ on page 71952, the phrase ‘‘physical and functional relationship to public transportation’’ should read ‘‘physical or functional relationship to public transportation.’’ 2. In the description of the Job Access Reverse Commute Program in section VI part (M), page 71967, under subsection 2, ‘‘Basis for Formula Apportionment,’’ in the 2nd paragraph, the phrase ‘‘persons with disabilities’’ should read ‘‘low-income individuals and welfare recipients.’’ Issued on: December 13, 2005.

I. Overview

    This document apportions or allocates annual appropriations among 
potential program recipients. In addition, the document contains 
specific instructions or guidance for FTA programs and funding, in the 
``Transportation, Treasury, Housing and Urban Development, the 
Judiciary, the District of Columbia, and Independent Agencies 
Appropriations Act, 2006'' (Pub. L. 109-115, November 30, 2005; 
hereafter called the 2006 Appropriations Act).
    On November 30, 2005, the FTA Notice entitled ``FTA Transit Program 
Changes, Authorized Funding Levels and Implementation of the Safe, 
Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy 
for Users'' was published in the Federal Register. That Notice contains 
information about FTA program guidance, requirements, period of 
availability, and other important information for FY 2006, and should 
be used together with this document. It can be found on the FTA Web 
site at http://www.fta.dot.gov/2930_ENG_HTML.htm, and is also 
available for public comment on the DOT Docket Web site: http://
dms.dot.gov identified by DOT DMS Docket Number FTA-2005-23089. Two 
corrections to the November 30 Notice are included in this Notice.

II. FY 2006 Funding for FTA Programs

    The three major FTA program areas included in the notice are 
formula and bus grants, capital investments, and research. Of the 17 
separate FTA programs contained in this notice that fall under the 
major program area headings, the funding for 10 is apportioned by 
statutory formula. Funding for the other seven is allocated on a 
discretionary or competitive basis.

A. Funding Based on FY 2006 Appropriations Act

    The 2006 Appropriations Act provides funding from the General Fund 
of the Treasury and Mass Transit Account of the Highway Trust Fund that 
totals $8.59 billion for FTA programs. This amount is slightly less 
than the $8.62 billion authorized for FY 2006 in SAFETEA-LU. Table 1 
shows the SAFETEA-LU authorized funding levels for transit programs. 
Table 2 of this document shows the appropriated funding levels for FTA 
programs for FY 2006. The 2006 Appropriations Act made funding 
available for the entire fiscal year.

B. Apportionments and Allocations

    An apportionment or allocation table is included in this Notice for 
each program, except for the Section 5340 Growing States and High 
Density States Formula. The apportionments for this formula were 
combined with the Section 5307 or Section 5311 apportionments, as 
appropriate, and shown as a single amount, as directed by Congress in 
the SAFETEA-LU conference report. The amount shown in a table for an 
urbanized area, State, or specific project or recipient is available 
for obligation or award to a grant, under the respective FTA program.
    Because we combined Sections 5307 and 5340 apportionments as 
directed by Congress, we did not include in this Notice a separate 
breakout of the apportionment amounts to urbanized areas (UZAs) or 
States for Small Transit Intensive Cities (STIC) or for Section 5340 
formulas. However, this information is available and may be obtained 
from the FTA regional offices for your UZA or State.
    Unless the law provides otherwise, earmarked project allocations 
for Clean Fuels, Bus and Bus Facility, New Starts, Alternative 
Analysis, and the National Research Program must conform to the 
eligibility requirements of the particular program. Prospective 
recipients are encouraged to contact the appropriate FTA regional 
office to discuss project eligibility. The regional office can provide 
technical assistance to help develop an eligible project.

III. Specific Directions and Instructions in the 2006 Appropriations 
Act

    The 2006 Appropriations Act and accompanying conference report 
include instructions on the use or disposition of selected program 
funding,

[[Page 75649]]

and on the use of funds for particular projects. These provisions are 
listed below, with supplemental information where appropriate.
    (1) The Appropriations Act transfers $47,766,000 from the Fixed 
Guideway Modernization program to New Starts for activities under that 
program.
    (2) The Appropriations Act transfers $25,215,000 available for the 
Clean Fuels program to the Bus and Bus Facility program. Of the 
$43,000,000 made available for the Clean Fuels program, $17,785,000 
remains available for Clean Fuels projects authorized by SAFETEA-LU.
    (3) The Conference Report directs FTA not to reallocate funds 
designated for certain Bus and New Starts projects designated in FY 
2003 and prior years. These extended earmarks are listed in Table 19, 
along with several other bus projects extended by previous 
Congressional action.
    (4) Section 113 provides that ``notwithstanding any other provision 
of law, projects and activities described in the statement of managers 
accompanying this Act under the headings ``Federal-Aid Highways'' and 
``Federal Transit Administration'' shall be eligible for fiscal year 
2006 funds made available for the project for which each project or 
activity is so designated: Provided, That the Federal share payable on 
account of any such projects and activities subject to this section 
shall be the same as the share required by the Federal program under 
which each project or activity is designated unless otherwise provided 
in this Act.'' This general provision makes the Section 5309 bus 
projects and activities designated in the FY 2006 conference report 
eligible for the purposes indicated. The specific bus and clean fuels 
projects designated in SAFETEA-LU are also eligible by virtue of being 
in statute. In some instances, FTA may approve use of the funds under 
the Section 5309 Bus and Bus Facilities or Clean Fuels program for 
eligible activities other than those designated in statute or report 
language upon clarification from the relevant House and Senate 
committees on authorization or appropriations respectively.
    (5) The New Starts project allocations listed in Table 12 include 
some projects which may not have yet conducted or completed 
alternatives analysis. Pursuant to SAFETEA-LU, FY 2006 New Starts funds 
may only be used for preliminary engineering, final design, and 
construction. A New Starts project designated to receive Section 5309 
New Starts funds in the FY 2006 Appropriations Act must complete 
alternatives analysis and be approved by FTA to enter preliminary 
engineering before expending FY 2006 New Starts funds for preliminary 
engineering.
    (6) Section 112 provides funding for activities eligible under 
Title 23 or Title 49 at 100 percent Federal share, and are available 
until expended. Surface Transportation Projects and Highway Priority 
Projects to be funded under this section are designated in the 
conference report. These earmarks include some transit projects, 
similar to Section 115 and Section 117 in the FY 2004 and FY 2005 
appropriations acts. Recipients of designations for transit projects 
under Section 112 should initiate discussions with the appropriate FHWA 
division office to identify transit projects that may be administered 
by FTA and request that FHWA allot the funds to FTA.
    (7) Section 145 states that amounts made available from the bus 
category of the Capital Investment Grants Account or Discretionary 
Grants Account in this or any other previous Appropriations Act that 
remain unobligated or unexpended in a grant for a multimodal 
transportation facility in Burlington, Vermont, may be used for site-
preparation and design purposes of a multimodal transportation facility 
in a different location within Burlington, Vermont, than originally 
intended notwithstanding previous expenditures incurred for such 
purposes at the original location.
    (8) Section 146 provides that notwithstanding any other provision 
of law, funds designated in the conference report accompanying Public 
Law 108-447 and Public Law 108-199 for the King County Metro Park and 
Ride on First Hill, Seattle, Washington, shall be available to the 
Swedish Hospital parking garage, Seattle, Washington, subject to the 
same conditions and requirements of section 125 of Division H of Public 
Law 108-447.
    (9) Section 147 provides that funds in this Act that are 
apportioned to the Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority to 
carry out section 5307 may be used to acquire land, equipment, or 
facilities used in public transportation from another governmental 
authority in the same geographic area. The non-Federal share under 
section 5307 may include revenues from the sale of advertising and 
concessions.
    (10) Section 148 provides that notwithstanding any other provision 
of law, any unobligated funds designated to the Jacksonville 
Transportation Authority, Community Transportation Coordinator Program 
under the heading ``Job Access and Reverse Commute Grants'' in the 
statement of the managers accompanying Public Law 108-199, may be made 
available to the Jacksonville Transportation Authority for any purpose 
authorized under the Job Access and Reverse Commute program.
    (11) Section 149 provides that notwithstanding any other provision 
of law, any funds made available to the South Shore Commuter Rail, 
Indiana, project under the Federal Transit Administration Capital 
Investment Grants Account in Division H of Public Law 108-447 that 
remain available may be used for remodernization of the South Shore 
Commuter Rail system.

IV. Corrections

    The following corrections are made to information in the Federal 
Register published November 30, entitled ``FTA Transit Program Changes, 
Authorized Funding Levels and Implementation of the Safe, Accountable, 
Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users'' (70 
FR 71950 et seq.).
    1. In the description of eligibility of intercity bus and intercity 
rail facilities in section IV part (A), subsection 4 ``Intercity Bus 
and Intercity Rail'' on page 71952, the phrase ``physical and 
functional relationship to public transportation'' should read 
``physical or functional relationship to public transportation.''
    2. In the description of the Job Access Reverse Commute Program in 
section VI part (M), page 71967, under subsection 2, ``Basis for 
Formula Apportionment,'' in the 2nd paragraph, the phrase ``persons 
with disabilities'' should read ``low-income individuals and welfare 
recipients.''
