EFFECTS OF FEDERAL TRANSPORTATION FUNDING POLICIES AND STRUCTURES. APPENDIX B. HIGHWAY MATCHING REQUIREMENTS AND FUNDING LEVELS: A PRELIMINARY MODEL OF STATE RESPONSE

The study describes the patterns of Federal and State highway expenditures from 1950 through 1975. Interesting findings include a trend of decreasing Federal and State levels of support for highways (in constant dollars), increasing emphasis on ABCD (Primary, Secondary, Urban Extensions, and Urban System) highways relative to the Interstate, and a trend toward increasing maintenance expenditures. Significant dispersion among the States is demonstrated on such measures as user tax rates and per capita tax burden. This work is part of a broader study that addresses the effects of differential funding structures across highway, airport, and transit modes.
