6. On page 30512, after the last paragraph, include to read:

Update on the Commission's Transportation Program

As stated in the May 23, 2012 Federal Register notice, the Commission's Transportation Advisory Committee met on June 6 and 7, 2012. The TAC rated and ranked 43 surface road projects and recommended 23 projects for funding. These 23 road projects, if funded, have an aggregate need of approximately $14 million. Coupled with the previously rated, ranked and recommended FY11 road projects (10 projects with an aggregate need of approximately $6 million), the Commission stands ready to obligate up to $20 million in FY12. However, the Commission is still awaiting a decision by the Government Accountability Office on whether the FY11 and FY12 Federal Highways Administration funding for the Denali Access Program (i.e. the Commission's Transportation Program) will be provided to the Commission. Therefore, there are no grant actions by the Commission, yet, on the agency's surface road program.

Joel Neimeyer,

Federal Co-Chair.
