 FEDERAL GUIDANCE ISSUED ON IMPLEMENTING INTERMODAL SURFACE
 TRANSPORTATION EFFICIENCY ACT OF 1991
 WASHINGTON, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- In a continuing effort to fully implement the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA), which will create jobs, the U.S. Department of Transportation today published in the Federal Register a series of preliminary guidelines for use in carrying out the act.
 Today's action is an example of the vigorous emphasis the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has put on expediting the highway program to create jobs and stimulate the economy.
 Secretary of Transportation Andrew H. Card Jr. said: "The ISTEA represents landmark highway legislation and is an important part of the president's economic recovery program. The FHWA is working swiftly to get the act implemented, people to work and infrastructure repaired."
 In order to assure wide dissemination of information on carrying out ISTEA, the FHWA published all materials that have been issued to field offices since the act was signed by the president on Dec. 18, 1991. The FHWA will continue to publish guidelines periodically.
 FHWA said the general public can also gain access to the guidelines and other information relating to the ISTEA through a computer link. The system is called the FHWA Electronic Bulletin Board System (FEBBS) and it can be called through a modem on a microcomputer at 202-366-3764. For help accessing FEBBS, contact FHWA's computer help desk as 202-366-1120.
