"K. Notwithstanding any provision of law, no funding provided by the Commonwealth to the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority shall be used to design, construct or operate any project that has not been developed using the standard Virginia Department of Transportation procedures for project selection and development, nor shall any project receive any additional funding in fiscal year 2015 or 2016 unless it has been evaluated and prioritized pursuant to the requirements of House Bill 599, 2012 Session of the General Assembly.  This limitation shall apply to projects receiving funding in fiscal year 2014 to the extent that the Authority is considering providing additional appropriations to any project begun the prior year."

(This amendment prohibits the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority from providing funding for any project unless it has followed all the standard VDOT project selection and development requirements prior to making such allocation, including the evaluation criteria set out in House Bill 599, 2012 Session of the General Assembly.)
