Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill requires the Department of Transportation to transfer state moneys
appropriated to DOT for state highway rehabilitation to an appropriation account
for local transportation assistance programs. The bill also requires DOT to transfer
an equivalent amount of federal moneys appropriated for local transportation
assistance programs to an appropriation account for state highway rehabilitation.
Finally, the bill requires the Legislative Fiscal Bureau to adjust the
appropriation schedule in chapter 20 of the statutes to reflect the amounts in the
state highway rehabilitation and local transportation assistance program
appropriation accounts immediately following the transfers.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
