Page 405, after line 17, insert:
"E. From such funds appropriated for public transportation purposes, there is hereby allocated $1,900,000 in the second year to conduct a transit study in the cities of Hampton and Newport News for (i) corridor planning to identify potential areas for high capacity, fixed guideway transit connectivity, (ii) defining areas of high commercial and residential growth and density as well as areas limited by increasing roadway congestion, and (iii) evaluation of options that will define transit needs and possible alignment and technology solutions on the Peninsula with consideration given to future transit connectivity options to other cities in the Hampton Roads region."

(This amendment directs the Commonwealth Transportation Board to reserve funding from the Mass Transit Fund in support of the assessment and planning of future fixed guideway transit service between areas of high density commercial and residential populations in Hampton Roads and Newport News.)
