Page 471, after line 53, insert:
"C.  No funding appropriated under this act may be used by the Virginia Department of Transportation to implement or carry out the provision of any purported contract or agreement with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) for the transfer of the Dulles Toll Road which does not provide for limitation on tolling authority exercises by MWAA as follows:  VDOT shall not increase tolls in excess of $2.00 at the Tysons Corner/Route 7 main plaze of the Dulles Toll Road or in excess of $1.00 at each exit in order to finance the extension of mass transit in the Dulles corridor, including Metrorail unless the governing body of Loudoun County and the governing body of Fairfax County each put the issue of such increases to referendum to the voters in each county on the November ballot in the same even-numbered election year, and such toll increases are approved by a majority of the voters at such referendum.  For purposes of this section, "a majority of voters" means a majority of the total number of voters voting on the issue in both counties regardless of the outcome of the vote in each county."
