Item 480 #2h

First Year - FY2003 Second Year - FY2004
Motor Vehicles, Department of FY2003 $0 FY2004 $2,500,000 NGF

Page 448, line 43, strike "$100,573,362" and insert "$103,073,362".
Page 450, after line 7, insert:
"E.  Out of the amounts provided for Ground Transportation Regulation, $2,500,000 in the second year is provided to supplement available funding for motor vehicle weigh stations and rest stops.  The increased appropriation will not be used to reduce any other funding that had been provided for motor vehicle weigh stations.  To be eligible for allocations of these funds, a local or privately funded matching contribution must be made.  The rate of such match shall be negotiated between the Department of Motor Vehicles and the recipient of the funding."

(This amendment increases DMV's appropriations by $2.5 million in the second year to be used to restore funding for truck weigh stations. A companion amendment transfers this funding from VDOT. The amount of the transfer represents the additional liquidated damages collected as a result of increased penalties for overweight truck operations imposed beginning in fiscal year 2003.)
