RS31416 / H0729

This legislation clarifies that all highway user revenues accruing to the Highway Distribution Account, and ad valorem levies accruing, shall be spent in support of the operations, administration, maintenance, construction, and development of bridges and highways that benefit primarily motor vehicles in the local highway jurisdictions. Additionally, expenditure of these funds shall be certified annually stating that all highway user revenues and ad valorem levies have been expended for their intended purposes.
