Background

    On June 2, 2014, FHWA and FTA published in the Federal Register an 
NPRM proposing changes revisions to the regulations governing the 
development of metropolitan transportation plans and programs for 
urbanized areas, State transportation plans and programs, and the 
congestion management process. The changes reflect recent passage of 
the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). The 
MAP-21 continues many provisions related to transportation planning 
from prior laws; however, it introduces transformational changes and 
adds some new provisions. The proposed rule would make the regulations 
consistent with current statutory requirements and proposes the 
following: A new mandate for State departments of transportation 
(States) and metropolitan planning organizations (MPO) to take a 
performance-based approach to planning and programming; a new emphasis 
on the nonmetropolitan transportation planning process, by requiring 
States to have a higher level of involvement with nonmetropolitan local 
officials and providing a process for the creation of regional 
transportation planning organizations; a structural change to the 
membership of the larger MPOs; a new framework for voluntary scenario 
planning; revisions to the integration of the planning and 
environmental review process; and a process for programmatic mitigation 
plans.
    The original comment period for the NPRM closes on September 2, 
2014. The AASHTO has expressed concern that this closing date does not 
provide sufficient time to review and provide comprehensive comments on 
the NPRM. The FHWA recognizes that others interested in commenting may 
have similar concerns and agrees that the comment period should be 
extended. To allow time for this organization and others to submit 
comprehensive comments, the closing date is changed from September 2, 
2014, to October 2, 2014.
