Issue Brief 10-23
May 26, 2010

On April 30, 2010, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) published revised state federal-aid highway obligation limitations for federal fiscal year (FY) 2010. FHWA also published FY 2010 program apportionments and issued a notice restoring more than $8.7 billion in rescinded contract authority (CA) on April 20, 2010. All three announcements are based on the Surface Transportation Extension Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-147), which temporarily extends the authorization for highway programs through December 31, 2010.
