SUPPLEMENT TO SPECIAL ANALYSIS D. A REPORT REQUIRED BY THE FEDERAL CAPITAL INVESTMENT PROGRAM INFORMATION ACT OF 1984 (TITLE II OF PUBLIC LAW 98-501)

The Federal budget is required to include projections of Federal investment spending. Largest components are for roads, bridges, and federally assisted housing; together these account for more than 40 percent of the budget. The report indicates that current federal investment levels are sufficient to maintain facilities of national importance--major highways and bridges, airports and airways, Federal buildings and hospitals. Some areas not of national priority may require increased funding from states, localities or users. These categories include mass transportation, railroads, wastewater treatment, water resources, space and communications, energy, community development, conservation and land management, recreational resources and nonmilitary housing. Chapter 3 provides an analysis of investment for local public transportation systems--fixed-route bus, commuter rail, rapid transit, light rail and paratransit. An analysis of investment needs is provided, including factors that affect these needs, a review of the analysis of these needs prepared by the Congressional Budget Office, and identification of related policy options.
