DOT/FTA RIN: 2132-AB33 Publication ID: Fall 2017 
Title: +Metropolitan Planning Organization Coordination and Planning Area Reform 

This rulemaking would revise the transportation planning regulations by removing the recently enacted provisions requiring that boundaries of metropolitan planning areas (MPA) include an urbanized area in its entirety and include the contiguous area expected to become urbanized within a 20-year forecast period for the metropolitan transportation plan. This rulemaking would also remove requirements for metropolitan planning organizations (MPO) to merge, create unified transportation planning products, or petition the Secretary for an exemption when there is more than one MPO in an MPA. This change would result in cost savings and reduce burdens for regulatory compliance.
