Department of Transportation


Page 438, after line 4 insert:

"E. Notwithstanding the provisions of § 33.2-319 of the Code of Virginia, payment to the City of Richmond for City Street Maintenance shall be made based on the provisions of § 33.2-366, specifically those provision applicable to "any county having an area less than 100 square miles,". The Commonwealth Transportation Board shall approve program payment amounts at a level sufficient to accomplish this purpose. The Board is further authorized to reallocate funds from such other programs as it deems necessary to accomplish this purpose."          


(This amendment provides that the city street maintenance payments to the city of Richmond be made at the same rate paid to certain small counties that have withdrawn from the State highway system and thereby maintain their own roads in the same manner as a city.)
