MAP-21 Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century: this is the comprehensive federal transportation reauthorization that establishes federal transportation funding and programs and replaces SAFETEA-LU. MAP-21 restructures and consolidated much of the existing core of federal highway programs into six main areas. As a result of these reforms and the bill's lack of earmarks, MAP-21 may increase the ratio of highway program funds distributed by formula to the states. MAP-21 is envisioned to last two years, has been signed into law, and will be enacted October 21, 2012. MAP-21 has not yet been implemented by the California State Legislature.
