"11. From the amounts allocated to the Commonwealth by the Federal Highway Administration for Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality, the Commonwealth Transportation Board shall allocate up to $1,500,000 in the second year to fulfill the intent of Senate Joint Resolution 292 as adopted by the 2011 General Assembly. These amounts shall be dedicated to such purpose regardless of any additional funding provided to assist impacted localities in addressing the recommendations of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Commission."

(This amendment directs the Commonwealth Transportation Board to utilize up to $1.5 million of the federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds available in the second year to assess transit improvements in the Route 1 corridor that could be implemented to help offset increased congestion in that region, pursuant to Senate Joint Resolution 292 adopted by the 2011 General Assembly.)
