President's Budget Fully Funds MAP-21

19-Apr-2013 The Fiscal Year 2014 budget released April 10 by President Obama fully funds the authorized funding levels provided in MAP-21 and reserves funding after that legislation expires on Sept. 30, 2014, for a long-term re authorization of surface transportation programs, including a 25 percent increase from current levels. APTA leaders called these proposals commendable for their “continued support for public transportation investment.” The budget also proposes an additional $9 billion for critical transit infrastructure improvements, including $6 billion for Transit State of Good Repair, $500 million for New Start core capacity projects, and $2.5 billion for Urban and Rural Transit programs. This is in addition to a continued commitment to high-speed and intercity passenger rail, and a focus on livable communities.
