Page 443, line 5, after "program" strike "and the Bridge".
Page 443, line 6, strike "Replacement and Rehabilitation program".
Page 443, after line 57, insert:
"i. Funds apportioned under federal law for the Bridge Replacement and Rehabilitation program shall be allocated as required by federal law and to bridge projects across the Commonwealth on the basis of the severity of the bridge deficiency as selected by the Commonwealth Transportation Board. Such funds shall not be allocated through the state allocation formula set out in § 33.1-23.1."

(This amendment directs the Secretary of Transportation to allocate federal highway bridge replacement and rehabilitation funds to deficient bridges in the Commonwealth instead of allowing such funds to flow through the state funding distribution formula.)
