Page 172, line 20, strike "$15,230,168" and insert "$14,866,462".

Page 173, following line 1, insert:

"E. Consistent with § 33.2-366, Code of Virginia, the Commonwealth Transportation Board, when establishing annual rates of payments to Counties that have elected to withdraw from the secondary highway system, shall adjust such rate annually with i) procedures established for adjusting payments to cities, and ii) lane mileage adjustments.  It is the express intent of the General Assembly, that under no circumstance shall the addition of lane miles to one jurisdiction result in the direct or indirect reduction in the calculation of payment to any other jurisdiction receiving payment from funds appropriated for Financial Assistance for County Road Maintenance (60702)."


(This amendment clarifies the legislative intent of the Code of Virginia for the Commonwealth Transportation Board and the Virginia Department of Transportation when calculating annual rates of payment for counties that have elected to withdraw from the secondary highway system. An erroneous interpretation by the Board, at the recommendation of VDOT's Local Assistance Division, in June 2017, resulted in a one-time reduction in the calculation of maintenance payments to Henrico County due to an unanticipated increase in the lane miles in Arlington County.)
