Page 398, after line 19, insert:
"N. Notwithstanding any provision of law, any agreement to transfer money from the Commonwealth Transportation Funds to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) in connection with Phase II of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project beyond Wiehle Avenue in Fairfax County to Washington Dulles International Airport and on to Virginia Route 772 in Loudoun County shall include provisions stating that the MWAA has implemented all of the recommendations included in the November 2012 report of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Transportation as a condition of transferring such money.  The Governor may waive this requirement for one or more specific recommendations that have not been implemented by notifying the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees of his reason for granting the waiver or waivers."

(This amendment prohibits the use of state funding on Phase II of the Dulles Metro project unless the agreement includes provisions stating that the recommendations identified by U.S. Inspector General report have been addressed or the Governor notifies the General Assembly as to why a certain recommendation has not yet been implemented.)
