Proposed Collection; Comment Request for Form 8928, 39143-39144 [E9-18676]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 149 / Wednesday, August 5, 2009 / Notices srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES (4) The degree to which proposals are designed to reflect the needs of lowincome or other transportationdisadvantaged groups. In addition, area-wide and regionwide pricing proposals will be evaluated based on: (5) The degree to which proposals include evaluation of benefits, costs, revenues, environmental impacts, distributional impacts, and financial feasibility of each alternative package of transportation improvements, in comparison with the region’s currently adopted long-range transportation plan; (6) The degree to which further development of alternative packages will involve stakeholder groups, including (among others) business groups, environmental groups, and advocates for social equity; (7) The degree to which they are likely to lead to relatively near-term implementation; (8) The scale of the congestion pricing strategy, i.e., the extent of the geographic area, or the number of roadway facilities or corridors that are to be priced; (9) The degree to which the proposed pricing scenarios are comprehensive involving synergistic combinations of multimodal investment strategies, Intelligent Transportation System technologies and travel demand management strategies; and (10) The degree to which proposed pricing scenarios have a probability of getting public support. Further, non-toll pricing proposals will be evaluated based on the degree to which they demonstrate especially promising strategies such that their implementation will likely then be replicated broadly. Post-Selection Process If approved, a formal cooperative agreement will be prepared between the FHWA and the State. The cooperative agreement will include a refined scope of work developed from the original funding application and subsequent discussions with FHWA. Federal statutes will govern the cooperative agreement. Regulations cited in the agreement, and 49 CFR Part 18, Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Cooperative Agreements to State and Local Governments, will also apply. Each congestion pricing project must have a separate cooperative agreement. Although, in the past, the FHWA has allowed some States to have a master cooperative agreement that is subsequently amended for each approved project, in the future the FHWA will execute a separate agreement for each project. For VerDate Nov<24>2008 18:54 Aug 04, 2009 Jkt 217001 congestion pricing projects that involve only toll authority and that do not involve requests for Federal funds, a cooperative agreement must still be executed. Where the implementation of tolling is part of the VPP project, Federal tolling authority is required. To secure such authority for a VPP project, a cooperative agreement will be executed, regardless of whether VPP program funding is being provided. The cooperative agreement must include all of the information normally required as part of a tolling agreement (stipulating the terms of the tolling, providing details on the dispensation of revenues, etc.). A separate tolling agreement will not be required. As discussed previously, revenues must generally first be used to cover the project’s operating costs, including debt service, provide reasonable return on private party investments, and be used for the costs necessary to properly operate and maintain the facility. Any remaining revenues may then be used for other Title 23, United States Code eligible purposes. Where tolling authority is secured through a VPP program cooperative agreement, such an agreement, like tolling agreements providing the authority to toll under other Federal provisions and programs, will be signed by the Executive Director of FHWA. If tolling authority is not required, the cooperative agreement will be signed by the FHWA Division Administrator of the State Division Office. All cooperative agreements will be administered jointly by FHWA’s Office of Operations and FHWA’s State Division Office. Other Requirements Prior to FHWA approval of pricing project implementation, congestion pricing programs must be shown to be consistent with Federal metropolitan and statewide planning requirements (23 U.S.C. 134 and 135; and, if applicable, 49 U.S.C. 5303 and 5304). Implementation projects involving tolls outside metropolitan areas must be included in the approved statewide transportation improvement program and be selected in accordance with the requirements set forth in section 1204(f)(3) of TEA–21. Implementation projects involving tolls in metropolitan areas must be: (a) Included in, or consistent with, the approved metropolitan transportation plan (if the area is in nonattainment for a transportation-related pollutant, the metropolitan plan must be in conformance with the State air quality implementation plan); (b) included in PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39143 the approved metropolitan and statewide transportation improvement programs (if the metropolitan area is in a nonattainment area for a transportation related pollutant, the metropolitan transportation improvement program must be in conformance with the State air quality implementation plan); (c) selected in accordance with the requirements in section 1203(h)(5) or (i)(2) of TEA–21; and (d) consistent with any existing congestion management system in Transportation Management Areas, developed pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 134(i)(3).
