      Sec. 13a-175s. Procedure for making project grants and loans under local bridge program. (a) The commissioner shall maintain a list of eligible bridges and shall establish a priority list of eligible bridge projects for each fiscal year. In establishing such priority list, the commissioner shall consider the physical condition of each eligible bridge.

      (b) In each fiscal year the commissioner may make project loans to municipalities in the order of the priority list of eligible bridge projects to the extent of moneys available therefor in the Local Bridge Revolving Fund. Each municipality undertaking an eligible bridge project may apply for and receive a project loan or loans. The aggregate amount of project loans made to a municipality with respect to any project shall be equal to the amount requested by the municipality up to an amount not to exceed fifty per cent of the project costs allocable therefor to such municipality.

      (c) Each project loan shall be made pursuant to a project loan agreement between the state, acting by and through the commissioner, and the borrowing municipality and shall be evidenced by a project loan obligation of the borrowing municipality issued in accordance with section 13a-175t. Each project loan agreement shall be in the form prescribed by the commissioner, provided that each project loan agreement shall provide for a project loan obligation bearing interest at the rate of six per cent per annum payable quarterly and maturing no later than ten years from the date of such obligation.

      (d) In each fiscal year the commissioner may make project grants to municipalities in the order of the priority list of eligible bridge projects to the extent moneys are available therefor. Each municipality undertaking an eligible bridge project may apply for and receive a project grant equal to its grant percentage multiplied by the project costs allocable to such municipality.

      (e) All applications for project loans and project grants for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1985, shall be filed with the commissioner no later than October 1, 1984, and for each succeeding fiscal year all such applications shall be filed with the commissioner no later than March first of the fiscal year next preceding. The commissioner may for good cause extend the period of time in which any such application may be filed.

      (f) A project grant or project loan shall not be made to a municipality with respect to an eligible bridge project unless: (1) Each municipality undertaking such project has available to it, or has made arrangements satisfactory to the commissioner to obtain, funds to pay that portion of the project costs for which it is legally obligated and which are not met by project loans or project grants; (2) each municipality undertaking such project provides assurances satisfactory to the commissioner that it will undertake and complete such project with due diligence and that it will operate and maintain the eligible bridge properly after completion of such project; (3) each municipality undertaking such project and seeking a project loan or a project grant has filed with the commissioner all applications and other documents prescribed by the commissioner; (4) each municipality undertaking such project and seeking a project loan or a project grant has established separate accounts for the receipt and disbursement of the proceeds of project loans and project grants; and (5) in any case in which an eligible bridge is owned or maintained by more than one municipality, evidence satisfactory to the commissioner that all such municipalities are legally bound to complete their respective portions of such project. Notwithstanding any provisions of this subsection, the commissioner may make an advance grant to a municipality for the purpose of funding the engineering cost of an eligible bridge project. Such grant shall equal the municipality's grant percentage multiplied by the engineering cost, which cost shall not exceed fifteen per cent of the construction cost of the project, provided the amount of such advance shall be deducted from the total grant for the project.

      (g) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsections (b) and (d) of this section, the commissioner may make project grants and project loans with respect to an eligible bridge project without regard to the priority list of eligible bridge projects if a public emergency exists requiring the immediate removal, replacement, reconstruction, rehabilitation or improvement of the eligible bridge of such project to protect the public health and safety.

For the purposes of this section, "state moneys" means the proceeds of the sale of bonds authorized pursuant to sections 13a-176 to 13a-183, inclusive, or of temporary notes issued in anticipation of the money to be derived from the sale of such bonds. With each request filed as provided in section 13a-178 for an authorization of bonds pursuant to sections 13a-176 to 13a-183, inclusive, for any purpose described in subdivision (1) or subdivision (2) of subsection (a) of section 13a-176, the Commissioner of Transportation shall also file a certificate briefly identifying the highway projects for costs of which the proceeds of the sale of such bonds are to be used and expended and stating the amount of such proceeds to be so used and expended for costs of each such project, together with a statement whether, in the opinion of the commissioner, all or any part of federal moneys then available or thereafter to be made available for costs in connection with any such project should be added to the state moneys available or becoming available hereunder for such project. If the certificate so filed with respect to any such project includes a statement that some amount of such federal moneys should be added to such state moneys, then, if and to the extent directed by the State Bond Commission at the time of authorization of such bonds, said amount of such federal moneys then available or thereafter to be made available for costs in connection with such project may be added to any state moneys available or becoming available hereunder for such project and be used for such project, and any other federal moneys then available or thereafter to be made available for costs in connection with such project upon receipt shall, in conformity with applicable federal law, be used by the Treasurer to meet the principal and interest of outstanding bonds issued pursuant to sections 13a-176 to 13a-183, inclusive, or to meet the principal of temporary notes issued in anticipation of the money to be derived from the sale of bonds theretofore authorized pursuant to said sections for the purpose of financing such costs, either by purchase or redemption and cancellation of such bonds or notes or by payment thereof at maturity. Whenever any of the federal moneys so received with respect to such highway projects are used to meet principal of such temporary notes or whenever principal of any of such temporary notes is retired by application of revenue receipts of the state, the amount of bonds theretofore authorized in anticipation of which such temporary notes were issued, and the aggregate amount of bonds which may be authorized pursuant to section 13a-176, for the purpose stated in said section 13a-176 which included said highway project, shall each be reduced by the amount of the principal so met or retired. Pending use of the federal moneys so received to meet principal as hereinabove directed, the amount thereof may be invested by the Treasurer in bonds or obligations of, or guaranteed by, the state or the United States or agencies or instrumentalities of the United States, and shall be deemed to be part of the debt retirement funds of the state, and net earnings on such investments shall be used in the same manner as the said moneys so invested.

      Sec. 13a-244. Federal aid. For the purposes of sections 13a-239 to 13a-246, inclusive, "state moneys" means the proceeds of the sale of bonds authorized pursuant to said sections or of temporary notes issued in anticipation of the money to be derived from the sale of such bonds. With each request filed as provided in section 13a-240 for an authorization of bonds pursuant to said sections for financing all or any part of the project authorized by section 13a-32, there shall also be filed a certificate, signed in the same manner as such request, stating whether, in the opinion of the signer, all or any part of federal moneys then available or thereafter to be made available for costs in connection with the project should be added to the state moneys available or becoming available hereunder for the project. If the certificate so filed states that some amount of such federal moneys should be added to such state moneys, then, if and to the extent directed by the State Bond Commission at the time of authorization of such bonds, said amount of such federal moneys then available or thereafter to be made available for costs in connection with the project may be added to any state moneys available or becoming available hereunder for the project and be used for the project as if constituting such state moneys, and any other federal moneys then available or thereafter to be made available in connection with the project, if and to the extent from time to time directed by the State Bond Commission, upon receipt shall, in conformity with applicable federal law, be used by the Treasurer to meet principal of outstanding bonds issued pursuant to said sections 13a-239 to 13a-246, inclusive, or to meet the principal of temporary notes issued in anticipation of the money to be derived from the sale of bonds theretofore authorized pursuant to said sections for the purpose of financing such costs, either by purchase or redemption and cancellation of such bonds or notes or by payment thereof at maturity. Whenever any of the federal moneys so received with respect to the project are used to meet principal of such temporary notes or whenever principal of any of such temporary notes is retired by application of revenue receipts of the state, the amount of bonds theretofore authorized in anticipation of which such temporary notes were issued, and the aggregate amount of bonds which may be authorized pursuant to subsection (a) of section 13a-239, shall each be reduced by the amount of the principal so met or retired. Pending use of the federal moneys so received to meet principal, the amount thereof may be invested by the Treasurer in bonds or obligations of, or guaranteed by, the state or the United States or agencies or instrumentalities of the United States, and shall be deemed to be part of the debt retirement funds of the state, and net earnings on such investments shall be used in the same manner as the moneys so invested.
