Page 405, line 42, strike "based on population" and insert:
"based on eligible project costs".
Page 405, line 46, after "30, 2007.", insert:
"Further, use of the funds should be limited to projects with unfunded construction elements in the urban six-year improvement program for projects that have the right-of-way procured and the engineering substantially completed.  If balances available in the local partnership fund are insufficient to meet requests from eligible local governments, the Commonwealth Transportation Board shall allocate up to $20,000,000 from other available funds to supplement the program."

(This amendment seeks to engage additional local governments in the administration of highway construction projects. Utilizing balances available from monies appropriated for the program by the 2005 General Assembly, and supplemented by other available VDOT nongeneral funds, this amendment directs the Commonwealth Transportation Board to solicit additional projects ready to go to construction for participation in the local partnership program.)
