Wis. Admin. Code Department of Transportation § Trans 135.04 - Grant program funding

(1) GRANT FUND SOURCE. The grant program shall be funded using funds from the annual motor vehicle emission inspection and maintenance, or I/M, program appropriation established under s. 20.395(5) (hq), Stats.
(2) GRANT FUND AMOUNT. The department of transportation shall establish a one-time, non-recurring grant fund amount sufficient to purchase 300 diesel oxidation catalysts for installation on school buses.

Note: The Department established this number through consultation with the Department of Natural Resources. The DNR determined that the lost emission reductions associated with the amendment to s. 110.20(6)(a)1, Stats., exempting two additional model year vehicles from emissions testing could be substantively offset by retrofitting 300 school buses in the program area with oxidation catalysts.

(3) TIMEFRAMES.
(a) The total grant fund amount shall be encumbered over the fewest number of fiscal years possible subject to the constraint that, in a given fiscal year, the encumbrance cannot exceed the difference between the annual I/M program appropriation and the amount committed to paying all I/M program expenses for that fiscal year.
(b) Within 30 days of May 1, 2005, the department shall notify the department of natural resources of the annual I/M program appropriation amount and the amount committed to paying all I/M program expenses for that fiscal year, and initiate the process of encumbering the difference for the grant program. This process shall be repeated at the beginning of each subsequent fiscal year until the full grant fund amount has been encumbered.
(c) Subject to the guidelines established in ss. Trans 135.05 and 135.06, the department of natural resources shall spend available grant funds as expediently as possible.
