The American Public Works Association (APWA) offers a resource guide on the $286.4 billion SAFETEA-LU federal transportation law, intending to help officials sort out the complicated legislation and determine how it affects them.
SAFETEA-LU: A Guide to Provisions Related to Local Governments is a 24-page downloadable document designed to act as a quick reference (rather than a comprehensive manual) to the transportation bill. It includes funding charts, SAFETEA-LU section citations, program descriptions, a glossary of terms, and links to sources where users can find more information from the association or the U.S. DOT.
