Webinar: State Freight Plans and State Freight Advisory Committees – FAST Act Guidance Overview

November 16, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

The State Freight Plan FAST Act guidance was published in the Federal Register on October 14, 2016.  The guidance outlines the requirements for States to prepare FAST Act-compliant state freight plans, and to ensure they are eligible to continue to obligate the new National Highway Freight Program (FAST Act Section 1116) formula funds after the two-year anniversary of the FAST Act on December 4, 2017.  The FAST Act State Freight Plan guidance builds upon the MAP-21 State Freight Plan interim guidance many States used to prepare plans prior to enactment of the FAST Act.  In addition to discussing the statutory requirements for state freight plans, the new guidance also provides State Freight Advisory Committee recommendations.
