Page 396, after line 32, insert:

"F.  To ensure that the maximum practicable share of taxpayer funds allocated to the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) are dedicated to transportation improvement projects, the total Authority operating budget shall not exceed four percent of the revenues provided to it from this Act."


(This amendment limits the share of the NVTA budget allocated to administrative expenses to four percent. As proposed, the fiscal year 2018 budget would spend 5.3 percent of the funding for administrative activities. The operating budget of the NVTA has increased from $1.1 million in fiscal year 2015 to a proposed $1.7 million in fiscal year 2018.)
