Page 367, after line 22, insert:
“G.1.  The Intermodal Office shall coordinate the efforts of the Departments of Transportation, and Rail and Public Transportation to work with local governments to develop specific performance measures and criteria by which to measure the success of transportation projects funded with revenues derived from §§ 58.1-802 and 58.1-802.1, Code of Virginia.  Such criteria shall measure performance, including but not limited to, improvements related to safety, connectivity, economic development, improved air quality, and traffic mitigation.  
2. As part of this effort, the Intermodal Office shall work with the relevant state agencies and representatives of local government to develop a standard cost/ benefit methodology to analyze projects."

(This amendment requires the Intermodal Office to work with VDOT, DRPT and local governments to develop performance standards to measure the success of transportation projects in improving congestion, safety, air quality, and other variables. The two Code sites reference the grantor tax.)
