2.1. FASTLANE Grant Applications
Presenter: Jeff Neal, NCTCOG
Item Summary: Staff will brief the Regional Transportation Council on the FY2017 Fostering Advancements in Shipping and Transportation for the Long-term Achievement of National Efficiencies (FASTLANE) Grant Program recently announced by the United States Department of Transportation (US DOT), and request action enabling two projects to be submitted for consideration.
Background: In October 2016, the US DOT announced the FY2017 FASTLANE Grant Program for freight projects with national or regional significance. The program is designed to address congestion on the nation's freight corridors and to support anticipated freight growth on the multimodal transportation system. The Notice of Funding Opportunity indicates availability of $850 million for the FASTLANE Grant Program in FY2017, and final applications are due to the US DOT by December 15, 2016. Additional information is available online at https://www.transportation.gov/buildamerica/FASTLANE grants. For agencies in the region submitting projects, please be aware that you must complete the Grants.gov registration process before submitting the application, and this process usually takes two to four weeks to complete. In addition, if an agency would like to receive a letter of support from the Regional Transportation Council (RTC), requests must be submitted to Rebekah Hernandez by Friday, December 2, 2016, at rhernandez@nctcog.org. NCTCOG proposes to re-submit applications for the two projects originally approved by the RTC in April 2016 for the previous fiscal years FASTLANE Grant Program. The projects are the DFW Connector North Airport Interchange (western subregion) and the Interstate Highway 35E/35W Merge Interchange (eastern subregion) in Denton, and are proposed with no changes.

2.2. Approval to Pursue Transportation Data-Sharing Partnerships on a Common Regional Platform
Presenter: Tom Bamonte, NCTCOG
Item Summary: Regional Transportation Council approval will be requested for issuance of a Request for Partners to identify parties interested in sharing transportation-related data with the region on a common platform (e.g., the 511DFW data portal) and to enter into private sector data-sharing partnerships.
Background: This item was presented on an informational basis at last months meeting. The Waze Connected Citizens Program (CCP), Electronic Item 2.2.1, is an example of a transportation data-sharing partnership between a public entity and a private sector travel navigation system. Such partnerships can help improve travel navigation services used by travelers and give public road operators more information about the condition and operation of their roadways. The open data portal already built into 511DFW can be used for such data exchanges in the region. Staff seeks approval to issue a Request for Partners to explore entering into similar data-sharing partnerships with the private sector to improve safety, traffic flow, and transportation planning and proceed with the CCP. This does not impact the North Central Texas Council of Governments' and the Regional Transportation Council's ability to continue to enter into data-sharing arrangements, as appropriate, with other public sector entities. Additional information is provided in Reference Item 2.2.2.

Background: In August 2016, the TTC approved the allocation of Category 2 (MPO selected), Category 4 (TxDOT district selected), and Category 12 (Commission selected) funding for FY2017-FY2026.

NCTCOG staff is using performance measures consistent with those used to develop Mobility 2040, along with a review of project timing, environmental status, and estimated construction costs. This effort will also fulfill the legislative HB 20 10-year planning requirement. Additionally, with the availability of new Category 2 funding, staff proposes to take this opportunity to address the east/west equity shares within the region. For reference, Electronic Item 4.1 contains the latest east/west equity shares for the region.

Over the past month, staff has been incorporating comments and input received from the public, as well as from members of the Surface Transportation Technical Committee and the RTC.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
TEXAS WORKERS' COMPENSATION REVISED CLASSIFICATION RELATIVITIES
DOCKET NO. 2794

The commissioner of insurance will hold a public hearing to consider revised Texas workers' compensation classification relativities to replace those adopted under Commissioner's Order No. 4337, dated March 3, 2016. The hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m., Central time, December 16, 2016, in Room 100 of the William P. Hobby Jr. State Office Building, 333 Guadalupe Street in Austin, Texas. The notice of hearing and exhibit are on the TDI website at www.tdi.texas.gov/alert/event/index.html.

Subject and Scope:

Staff proposes that the commissioner adopt revised classification relativities to replace those adopted under Commissioner's Order No. 4337, dated March 3, 2016. Exhibit A is a schedule of the revised classification relativities. Staff requests that the proposed revised classification relativities be available for adoption by insurers immediately, but that their use be mandatory for all policies with effective dates on or after July 1, 2017, unless the insurer files an alternative classification rate basis.

Staff recommends reducing the overall level of relativities by 10 percent. In developing the relativities, staff has incorporated recent changes in the classification system from two NCCI filings (Item B-1431 and Item 01-TX-2016).

Applicable Authority, Jurisdiction, Statutes, and Rules:

The commissioner has jurisdiction over this hearing under Insurance Code 2053.051. Section 2053.051 requires TDI to determine hazards by class and establish classification relativities applicable to the payroll in each classification for workers' compensation insurance. It also provides that the classification system must be revised at least once every five years.

Comments and Exhibits:

To comment on the matter being considered, you may submit written comments and exhibits at or before the public hearing, or you may present oral comments at the hearing. Please include the applicable docket number on any comments or exhibits. Submit two copies of any written comments no later than 5 p.m., Central time, on January 9, 2017. Send one copy by mail to the Office of the Chief Clerk, Mail Code 113-2A, Texas Department of Insurance, P.O. Box 149104, Austin, Texas 78714-9104; or by email to chiefclerk@tdi.texas.gov. Send the other copy by mail to J'ne Byckovski, Chief Actuary, Property and Casualty Actuarial Office, Mail Code 105-5F, Texas Department of Insurance, P.O. Box 149104, Austin, Texas 78714-9104; or by email to jne.byckovski@tdi.texas.gov.
