"K. Notwithstanding any provision of law, no funding provided by the Commonwealth to the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority shall be used to fund any transit project with costs exceeding $1,000,000 until an evaluation of capital and operating costs per rider, both in year 1 and year 5 of the proposed project has been completed and such cost evaluation be used to help evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the proposed project at reducing congestion.  The results of such analysis shall be published on the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority's website for public review."

(This amendment prohibits the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority from providing funding for any transit project in excess of $1.0 million until it has determined the projected cost per rider in terms of both capital and operating costs, current and five years into operation, and published such evaluation on its website.)
