For each project, the coordinated environmental review

process established under this section shall provide, at a

minimum, for the following elements:

(1) Federal agency identification.--The Secretary shall, at

the earliest possible time, identify all potential Federal

agencies that--

(A) have jurisdiction by law over environmental-related

issues that may be affected by the project and the analysis

of which would be part of any environmental document required

by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C.

4321 et seq.); or

(B) may be required by Federal law to independently--

(i) conduct an environmental-related review or analysis; or

approval or render an opinion on the environmental impact of

the project.

(2) Time limitations and concurrent review.--The Secretary

and the head of each Federal agency identified under

paragraph (1)--

(A)(i) shall jointly develop and establish time periods for

review for--

(I) all Federal agency comments with respect to any

environmental review documents required by the National

Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) for

the project; and

(II) all other independent Federal agency environmental

analyses, reviews, opinions, and decisions on any permits,

licenses, and approvals that must be issued or made for the

project;

whereby each such Federal agency's review shall be undertaken

and completed within such established time periods for

review; or

(ii) may enter into an agreement to establish such time

periods for review with respect to a class of project; and

(B) shall ensure, in establishing such time periods for

review, that the conduct of any such analysis, review,

opinion, and decision is undertaken concurrently with all

other environmental reviews for the project, including the

reviews required by the National Environmental Policy Act of

1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.); except that such review may

not be concurrent if the affected Federal agency can

demonstrate that such concurrent review would result in a

significant adverse impact to the environment or

substantively alter the operation of Federal law or would not

be possible without information developed as part of the

environmental review process.

(3) Factors to be considered.--Time periods for review

established under this section shall be consistent with the

time periods established by the Council on Environmental

Quality under sections 1501.8 and 1506.10 of title 40, Code

of Federal Regulations.

(4) Extensions.--The Secretary shall extend any time

periods for review under this section if, upon good cause

shown, the Secretary and any Federal agency concerned

determine that additional time for analysis and review is

needed as a result of new information that has been

discovered that could not reasonably have been anticipated

when the Federal agency's time periods for review were

established. Any memorandum of understanding shall be

modified to incorporate any mutually agreed-upon extensions.

(c) Dispute Resolution.--When the Secretary determines that

a Federal agency which is subject to a time period for its

environmental review or analysis under this section has

failed to complete such review, analysis, opinion, or

decision on issuing any permit, license, or approval within

the established time period or within any agreed-upon

extension to such time period, the Secretary may, after

notice and consultation with such agency, close the record on

the matter before the Secretary. If the Secretary finds,

after timely compliance with this section, that an

environmental issue related to the project that an affected

Federal agency has jurisdiction over by operation of Federal

law has not been resolved, the Secretary and the head of the

Federal agency shall resolve the matter not later than 30

days after the date of the finding by the Secretary.

(d) Participation of State Agencies.--For any project

eligible for assistance under chapter 1 of title 23, United

States Code, a State, by operation of State law, may require

that all State agencies that have jurisdiction by State or

Federal law over environmental-related issues that may be

affected by the project, or that are required to issue any

environmental-related reviews, analyses, opinions, or

determinations on issuing any permits, licenses, or

approvals for the project, be subject to the coordinated

environmental review process established under this

section unless the Secretary determines that a State's

participation would not be in the public interest. For a

State to require State agencies to participate in the

review process, all affected agencies of the State shall

be subject to the review process.

(e) Assistance to Affected Federal Agencies.--

(1) In general.--The Secretary may approve a request by a

State to provide funds made available under chapter 1 of

title 23, United States Code, to the State for the project

subject to the coordinated environmental review process

established under this section to affected Federal agencies

to provide the resources necessary to meet any time limits

established under this section.

(2) Amounts.--Such requests under paragraph (1) shall be

approved only--

(A) for the additional amounts that the Secretary

determines are necessary for the affected Federal agencies to

meet the time limits for environmental review; and

(B) if such time limits are less than the customary time

necessary for such review.

(f) Judicial Review and Savings Clause.--

(1) Judicial review.--Nothing in this section shall affect

the reviewability of any final Federal agency action in a

district court of the United States or in the court of any

State.

(2) Savings clause.--Nothing in this section shall affect

the applicability of the National Environmental Policy Act of

1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) or any other Federal

environmental statute or affect the responsibility of any

Federal officer to comply with or enforce any such statute.

Subtitle E--Finance

CHAPTER 1--TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE FINANCE AND INNOVATION

SEC. 1501. SHORT TITLE.

This chapter may be cited as the ``Transportation

Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act of 1998''.

SEC. 1502. FINDINGS.

Congress finds that--

(1) a well-developed system of transportation

infrastructure is critical to the economic well-being,

health, and welfare of the people of the United States;

(2) traditional public funding techniques such as grant

programs are unable to keep pace with the infrastructure

investment needs of the United States because of budgetary

constraints at the Federal, State, and local levels of

government;

(3) major transportation infrastructure facilities that

address critical national needs, such as intermodal

facilities, border crossings, and multistate trade corridors,

are of a scale that exceeds the capacity of Federal and State

assistance programs in effect on the date of enactment of

this Act;

(4) new investment capital can be attracted to

infrastructure projects that are capable of generating their

own revenue streams through user charges or other dedicated

funding sources; and

(5) a Federal credit program for projects of national

significance can complement existing funding resources by

filling market gaps, thereby leveraging substantial private

co-investment.
