National Highway System Designation Act of 1995, Section 307

If you’re interested in history and have more free time than you know how to spend, by all means click this link.  One of the highlights of Section 307 of this act is that it eliminated the ability of state DOTs to cap A/E firm overhead rates unless the state established by state statute an “alternative process” to ensure maximum competition, within a one-year period.  Thirteen states did so.  Subsequently, section 174 of the 2006 Appropriations Act eliminated these alternative processes for all but two states, Minnesota and West Virginia.
