STATE TRUNK LINE HIGHWAY SYSTEM (EXCERPT)
Act 51 of 1951
247.660o Allocation of federal funds to local jurisdictions; distributions.
(1) Twenty-three to twenty-seven percent of the DOT-FHWA highway research, planning, and construction federal funds appropriated to this state from the federal government for road and bridge construction shall be allocated to programs administered by local jurisdictions after deduction of the following:
(a) Funds that are specifically allocated at the federal level to the state or local jurisdictions.
(b) Funds allocated by the department to the state and to local jurisdictions through a competitive process.
(2) Federal aid excluded from the calculation of funding allocated to programs administered by local jurisdictions in subsection (1) includes, but is not limited to, congestion mitigation and air quality funds, federal bridge funds, transportation enhancement funds, funds distributed at the discretion of the United States secretary of transportation, and congressionally designated funds.
(3) The funds shall be distributed to eligible local agencies for transportation purposes in a manner consistent with state and federal law.
(4) It is the intent of the legislature that federal aid to highways allocated to local jurisdictions in subsection (1) be distributed in a manner that produces a 25% average allocation of applicable funds to programs for local jurisdictions in each fiscal year through the fiscal year ending September 30, 2000. Beginning in the fiscal year ending September 30, 1999, the average allocation of applicable federal aid to highway funds to programs for local jurisdictions shall be the average of the amount distributed to local jurisdictions under subsection (1) and similarly calculated distributions in each succeeding fiscal year. The average allocation percentage described in this subsection shall be adjusted to reflect any voluntary agreements made by the department with local jurisdictions regarding the state buyout of local federal aid.
