Item 451 #2c

Item 451 #2c

Department of Transportation


Page 438, after line 4, insert:

"E. Of the amounts in this item, $1,000,000 the first year and $1,000,000 the second year from the Commonwealth Transportation Fund is appropriated for service charges to be paid to localities in which the Virginia Port Authority owns tax-exempt real estate for roadway maintenance activities in the jurisdictions hosting Virginia Port Authority facilities. These payments shall be treated the same as other Commonwealth Transportation Board payments to localities for highway maintenance. These funds shall not be used for other activities nor shall they supplant other local government expenditures for roadway maintenance. These funds shall be distributed to the localities on a pro rata basis in accordance with the formula set out in § 58.1-3403 D, Code of Virginia; however, the proportion of the funds distributed based on cargo traveling through each port facility shall be distributed on a pro rata basis according to twenty-foot equivalent units."


(This amendment, along with a companion amendment in Item 459, supplants general fund support for road maintenance for localities with Port facilities with $1.0 million annually from the Commonwealth Transportation Fund. These amendments are consistent with actions in the introduced budget to replace general fund support for transportation with nongeneral fund sources that are designated for transportation usage.)
