   10         (1) Eighty-five million shall be used for existing or
   11  planned strategic transportation projects that connect major
   12  markets within this state or between this state and other
   13  states, that focus on job creation, and that increase this
   14  state’s viability in the national and global markets.
   15         (2) Fifteen million shall be used for regionally
   16  significant transportation projects that support the state’s
   17  economic regions and provide connectivity to and through rural

   24  with s. 339.155(4)(c), (d), and (e) and that have provided an
   25  increased level of nonstate match.
   26         (3) Ten million shall be used for capital projects,
   27  equipment, or facilities for existing or planned public transit
