The bill authorizes a transportation planning organization (TPO)
to exercise the powers of a regional transportation authority (RTA).
Among other powers, the powers of a RTA include the power to impose
various charges, fees, and, with voter approval, visitor benefit, sales, and
use taxes to generate transportation funding. Any additional
transportation funding obtained by a TPO exercising the power of a RTA

are intended to supplement and not supplant state transportation funding
allocated within the boundaries. Therefore, the transportation commission
and the department of transportation (CDOT) are prohibited from taking
such additional transportation funding into account when determining the
amount of state transportation funding to be allocated within the
boundaries of a TPO, and CDOT, when submitting its annual proposed
budget allocation plan, is required to provide evidence that the proposed
allocation of state transportation funding within the boundaries of any
TPO that has obtained such additional transportation funding has not been
reduced in any way on account of the additional transportation funding.
