(a) In any fiscal year, if the Administrators determine, based on a preliminary review, that a State is not implementing a highway safety program in accordance with 23 U.S.C. 402, the Administrators shall issue jointly to the State an advance notice, advising the State that the Administrators expect to either withhold funds from apportionment under 23 U.S.C. 402, or reduce the State's apportioned funds under 23 U.S.C. 402. The Administrators shall state the amount of the expected withholding or reduction. The advance notice will normally be sent not later than ninety days prior to final apportionment.
(b) If the Administrators issue an advance notice to a State, based on a preliminary review, the State may, within 30 days of its receipt of the advance notice, submit documentation demonstrating that it is implementing a highway safety program. Documentation shall be submitted to the Administrator for NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, D.C. 20590.
(c) If the Administrators decide, after reviewing all relevant information, that a State is not implementing a highway safety program in accordance with 23 U.S.C. 402, they shall issue a final notice, advising the State either of the funds being withheld from apportionment under 23 U.S.C. 402, or of the apportioned funds being reduced under 23 U.S.C. 402 and the amount of the withholding or reduction. The final notice of a withholding will normally be issued on October 1. The final notice of a reduction will be issued at the time of a final decision.
