Transfer of DMV property to ABC (language only)

Item 401 #1h

Item 401 #1h

Public Safety
Public Safety, Secretary of

Page 226, after line 2, insert:
"E.  Notwithstanding the provisions of Item 480 of Chapter 1042, of the Acts of Assembly of 2003, the Secretary of Public Safety, in coordination with the Secretary of Transportation, shall authorize the transfer, for consideration, of the motor vehicle dealer center adjacent to the Franconia Customer Service Center from the Department of Motor Vehicles to the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.  Furthermore, notwithstanding the provisions of § 2.2-1156, Code of Virginia, all the proceeds from such transfer shall be deposited into the general fund."

(This amendment clarifies the intent in the current Appropriation Act to transfer property from DMV to ABC and deposit the revenue from the sale in the general fund. The language is needed because current language in Chapter 1042, of the Acts of Assembly of 2003, directs that the property be "sold." According to the Attorney General's office, state agencies "transfer" property to each other, rather than "sell" such property, thus necessitating this clarifying amendment.)
