Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, DOT provides state aid payments to local public bodies in
urban areas served by mass transit systems to assist the local public bodies with the
expenses of operating those systems. There are five classes of urban mass transit
systems. Four classes are defined by reference to the annual operating expenses of
the system or the population of the area in which the system operates. The total
amount of state aid payments to these four classes of mass transit systems is limited
to an annual amount specified in the statutes. The fifth class is for certain commuter
or light rail systems. There is no specified amount payable to the rail mass transit
system class. This bill increases funding for state aids to the four classes of mass
transit systems for which a yearly amount of aid is specified.
For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
