Page 376, after line 19, insert:
"4.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that priority consideration be given by the Governor to economic development projects that are in areas of high unemployment and that:  1) promote concentration of residential and commercial development along existing transportation/transit corridors within regional core and regional activity centers; or 2) can be served by existing public infrastructure; or 3) encourage a reduction, rather than an increase, in vehicle miles traveled within a region."

(This amendment sets as policy the emphasis on economic development projects that encourage more efficient development patterns across the state. The amendment discourages current economic development trends that promote the loss of sensitive environmental, cultural, historical, and natural resources. The amendment promotes economic development in locations already served by public infrastructure.)
