Department of Transportation


Page 436, following line 24, insert:

"G. The Commissioner shall promulgate policies, regulations, and guidelines for Transportation Alternative Set-Aside Grants and other locally administered projects that, to the maximum extent permissible under 23 CFR 365.105, authorize full-time employees of a planning district commission established pursuant to Regional Cooperation Act of 1968, §15.2-4200. et. seq. Code of Virginia, who have obtained qualified status to serve as the responsible charge under the Locally Administered Projects Qualification Program requirements of the Federal Highway Administration."


(This amendment directs the Virginia Department of Transportation to authorize a full-time employee of a regional planning district commission, who have received appropriate certification, to serve as the responsible charge on locally administered construction projects. Current VDOT policy allows only full-time employees of local governments to serve in this capacity.)
