|When:||Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2012
|Purpose:||To receive public comment on the amendments to §31.11 concerning formula program for state programs.
The 82nd Texas Legislature, 2011, appropriated additional state funds for public transportation grants to assist rural and urban transit districts with impacts of using 2010 census data in state grant formula allocations. The amendments to §31.11 will allow the commission to target the distribution of additional grant funding to those systems needing additional resources because of decreased funding allocations, startup system needs for newly designated urbanized areas, and other related impacts.
