Consolidate Program Funds

Segregation of Section 5311 program funds to Large Urban, Small Urban and Rural categories has stunted the states ability to effectively and efficiently utilize funds. Recommend that funds be consolidated to one pot per state as with SAFETEA-LU and previous authorization and funds be administered by states.
