"K.  Notwithstanding the provisions of § 46.2-208 and § 46.2-214, Code of Virginia, the Commission shall be authorized to provide a discounted rate for the provision of records to the operator, authorized agent or employee of a toll facility not acting on behalf of a government entity if such reduced rate shall be offered to effectuate a toll-rate reduction to benefit the general driving public on such facility.  Effective July 1, 2016 the Department shall set such rate at $1.25 per record, provided the affected facility imposes a concurrent reduction to its toll rate equal to $0.10 per trip.  No later than July 1, 2017 the Department shall evaluate the revenues generated from the removal of vehicle registration holds associated with said facility to determine if the revenues generated are sufficient to merit further reduction of the record fees charged to the toll facility operator.  The Commissioner shall report on the revenues generated from records fees and vehicle registration hold removals to the Chairmen of the House and Senate Transportation Committees and the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees no later than August 15, 2017, along with an explanation of any proposed changes to the vehicle record fees."


(This amendment directs the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles to provide records to non-government operated toll facilities at a reduced rate of $1.25 per record provided the affected toll facility reduces its toll rate by $0.10.)
