On Nov. 4, the Federal Highway Administration released a table showing the cut, known as a rescission, to each state’s federal highway funding as required by the FAST Act. Specifically, the FAST Act requires an approximately $7.6 billion cut in federal highway funding on July 1, 2020. If allowed to take effect, this cut will limit states flexibility to address their individual needs and can negatively impact their ability to plan and deliver critical projects.
