Under guidelines issued by the Committee, each Representative may request funding for local transportation projects for Fiscal Year 2022 – although only a handful may actually be funded. Projects are restricted to a limited number of federal funding streams, and only state and local governments, transit agencies, and the Georgia Department of Transportation are eligible to receive funding. In compliance with House Rules and Committee requirements, Rep. Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. has certified that he, his spouse, and his immediate family have no financial interest in any of the projects he has requested.
