USDOT Budget for FY 2022 Should Top $140 Billion
January 7, 2022|Jeff Davis
With the influx of extra funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, total funding for the U.S. Department of Transportation in fiscal 2022 is expected to total more than $140 billion, once the House and Senate Appropriations Committees finish their negotiations on their part of the funding plan.
With the 2022 contract authority and IIJA advance appropriation totals more or less locked in stone, that only leaves the annual appropriations part of the picture. If the House and Senate simply split the difference between every appropriation in their differing versions of the 2022 bill, the total budget authority for USDOT in 2022 would be $142 billion, as shown below.
$142 billion would be a 63 percent increase over 2021 (excluding the 2021 emergency appropriations), or a $54.8 billion increase, which would be a very respectable amount.
