Item 441 #3c

Item 441 #3c

Rail and Public Transportation, Department of

Page 336, line 34, after "Virginia." insert:
"F. It is the intent of the General Assembly that no transit formula assistance funding be used to support any new transit system or route at a level higher than such project would be eligible for under the allocation formula set out in § 58.1-638 A 4. e., Code of Virginia, beyond the first two years of its operation."

(This amendment limits to two years the Department's ability to fund certain new or expanded routes at higher than the formula-driven rate to ensure that funds are equitably distributed among the transit systems and each route is supported by the same level of local support.)
