The key provisions of the 1974 National Mass Transportation Assistance Act are explained with emphasis on the role that state government must play. Some speculation is offered as to how Federal mass transportation policy will affect state government in the near future. The attention of the Governor is mandated in choosing the designated recipient of formula funds or in being the designated recipient himself in certain situations. Where necessary, state government will have to provide the means, either through state grants or by providing additional local taxing authority, so that the maintenance of effort of operating support on the local level is contined, as well as meeting the critical need for the local match of the federal formula money.
