  • Department of Revenue recertified the FY 2013-14 Motor License Fund estimate, which includes revised motor fuel rates beginning in January (vs. December as assumed in estimates prior to the final version of H.B. 1060).
  • PennDOT completed its annual update of municipal roadway mileage, which represents 50% of the distribution calculation. (The remaining 50% is based on population, which is revised every 10 years from national census data.
