Federal Surface Transportation Programs Reauthorized through FY 2014
On July 6, 2012, the president signed Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21; P.L. 112-141), reauthorizing federal surface transportation programs for fiscal years (FYs) 2013 and 2014. Previously set to expire June 30, 2012, the bill also extends current funding through the end of FY 2012.
MAP-21 contains several non-transportation provisions, such as a funding cap for Abandoned Mine Land (AML) grants; a revision to the disaster-recovery Medicaid matching rate formula; assistance for Gulf Coast restoration; and program extensions for Payments In Lieu of Taxes (PILT), Secure Rural Schools (SRS), and Sports Fish Restoration and Boating Safety. For more information on these non-transportation provisions, see Issue Brief 12-25.
