Regular Formula Allocation Fund

The first penny of our proposed fuel tax increase, and all of the registration fee augmentation revenue, would go into the existing formulas. This would total $146.5 million per year. We would also propose that half of all future index revenues go into the existing formulas. The existing formulas, after collection expenses, allocate monies to a variety of sub funds, including the comprehensive transportation fund. After these allocations, approximately 39 percent of money goes the state system, 39 percent to the counties, and 22 percent to cities and villages. Within the counties and city funds, revenues are distributed geographically based on population, road miles and several other factors. These monies would be used for routine capital expansion, preservation and maintenance programs.
