Page 380, after line 15, insert:

"E.  Recognizing that there is a strong and direct connection between a vibrant economy and a sound transportation infrastructure,  and because for south-central Virginia, no element of the Commonwealth's transportation infrastructure is more important than highways and construction of proposed Interstate 73 is among the most vital highway projects being planned for the region, the Department of Transportation is directed to develop options to ensure that such project is initiated in a timely fashion.  The Department shall report its findings to the Chairmen of the House and Senate Transportation Committees no later than November 1, 2016. "


(This amendment directs the Department of Transportation to evaluate the potential for the construction of Interstate 73 in Virginia.)
