Transportation, Secretary of

Page 347, after line 37, insert:
"5.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that the first priority in the allocation of highway construction funds (both state and federal) by the Commonwealth Transportation Board in the Six-Year Improvement Program should be to provide sufficient funding to specific projects in the fiscal year when the funds will be spent.  To this end, the Commonwealth Transportation Board, by policy, should require that by the date of project construction advertisement, each project shall have 100% of preliminary engineering funded, 100% of right of way and utilities funded, and 70% of construction funding allocated.  Any deviations from this policy shall be reported within 30 days to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance, Senate Transportation, House Appropriations, and House Transportation Committees."

(This amendment is self-explanatory.)
