percentage of the amount to be apportioned for Federal-aid highways 
under each of paragraphs (1), (3), and (4) of section 104(b) of title 
23, United States Code, for certain calendar years as follows:

the Secretary determines that such State has complied with the 
requirements of section 202 of title II of Division B of Public Law 
109-13 (49 U.S.C. 30301 note), the Secretary shall apportion to such 
State an increase in an amount equal to such reduction. If at the end
