Surrounding State Transportation Funding Comparisons Department of Transportation Five-Year Report

2011 Transportation 20/20 Recommendations:

Increase the state fuel tax rates across the board by eight to ten cents.

Increase the “Fee for New Registration” from 5% to 6%.

The DOT should evaluate and recommend a funding mechanism in their report to the legislature that applies to alternatively-fueled, hybrid and high fuel efficiency vehicles (including commercial vehicles).

New funding should go to the TIME-21 Fund up to the cap ($225 million) and remaining new funding should be distributed consistent with the RUTF distribution formula.

The Iowa Code should be changed to require the study of the sufficiency of the state’s road funds to meet the road system’s needs every two years instead of every five years.

By June 30, 2012, the DOT should complete a study of vehicles and equipment that use Iowa’s public roadway system but pay no user fees or substantially lower user fees than other vehicles and equipment. Road Funding Future Concerns After the Off-the-Top Allocations and Appropriations – RUTF funds disbursed as follows:
Primary Road Fund (State) - 47.5%
1.75% of this distribution goes to the Transfer of Jurisdiction Fund

Secondary Road Fund (Counties) - 24.5%

Farm-to-Market Road Fund (Counties) - 8.0%

As a result, a portion of Municipal Road Fund from those cities is transferred monthly to the Secondary Road Fund of the respective counties. The total amount transferred is estimated at $2.1 million annually.

The Transfer of Jurisdiction Fund sunsets on June 30, 2013. After that, 1.75% of the Primary Road Fund will be distributed as follows: 90.0% to Secondary Road Fund and 10.0% to Street Construction Fund. Street Construction Fund
