Item 454 #2h

Virginia Port Authority

Page 483, after line 16, insert:
"shall be transferred to Item 444 for distribution for roadway maintenance activities in the jurisdictions hosting Virginia Port Authority facilities by the Commonwealth Transportation Board and".
Page 483, line 19, after "Virginia." insert:
"These funds shall be treated as other payments by the Commonwealth Transportation Board to cities and towns for highway maintenance activities and shall not be used for other activities nor shall it be used to supplant other local government expenditures for roadway maintenance."

(This amendment clarifies that the $1.0 million proposed appropriation to the cities in the Commonwealth that host Virginia Port Authority cities is to be used solely for roadway maintenance to repair damages caused by the heavy truck traffic attracted by the presence of the port facilities.)
