About Proposition 1
On Nov. 4, 2014, Texas voters overwhelmingly approved the ballot measure known as Proposition 1, authorizing a constitutional amendment for transportation funding. Under the amendment, a portion of oil and gas tax revenues that typically go into the Economic Stabilization Fund will be deposited to the State Highway Fund. For fiscal years 2016-2017, the General Appropriations Act (84th Legislature, Regular Session) authorized Proposition 1 funds to be allocated by the following percentages using existing formulas adopted by the Texas Transportation Commission, including 45 percent that is distributed to metropolitan planning organizations to address mobility and added capacity in urban areas.

About The Transportation Improvement Program

According to federal law and regulations, CAMPO, in cooperation with the state and transit operators, develops a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the six-county region. The four-year TIP lists projects that are funded with federal dollars and are consistent with the long range plan developed for the area. The TIP may also include non-federally funded projects that are regionally significant.
