Member Designated Projects

This year, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee will accept member project requests for consideration in this year’s surface transportation authorization legislation. This process is separate and distinct from the House Committee on Appropriations’ process. Projects funded through the surface transportation authorization will be funded directly from the Highway Trust Fund, and do not require a separate or subsequent appropriation. Projects included in the Committee’s surface transportation authorization legislation are provided dedicated contract authority. These projects will receive dedicated obligation limitation under the overall provision of obligation limitation provided through the appropriations process, and will not require further congressional action. How obligation limitation will flow to designated projects versus formula funding will be laid out in the T&I legislative text.

The T&I Committee will be accepting requests from Members of Congress for specific project authorizations. Though there is no limit to the number of requests a Member can file, a Member will only get to rank their top five requests, and there is no guarantee requests will be granted. Additionally, the T&I Committee and I will look favorably upon projects that enjoy broad community support and are accompanied by letters of support, including letters from state agencies, local governments (including from Mayors, city councils, county commissioners, etc), and nonprofits.
