Transportation funding; Northern Virginia. Provides new funding for transportation in the Cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and Manassas Park and the Counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William. The sources of the new funds are: (i) civil penalties for certain offenses relating to the operation of a motor vehicle by persons residing in any of the localities; (ii) additional motor vehicle registration fees for trailers, semitrailers, and trucks with a gross weight over 12,000 pounds registered in any of the localities; (iii) an additional fee on the rental of motor vehicles in the localities; (iv) a transportation impact fee on the sale of real property in any of the localities; (v) dedication of current sales and use tax on motor vehicle repair parts and accessories sold in any of the localities; and (vi) a transient occupancy tax on rooms in the localities. The authority to impose any of the new or additional fees ceases if any transportation funds of the Commonwealth are not spent for transportation purposes. The priority of the projects to be funded shall be determined by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority in consultation with the local governing bodies of the localities, and in consultation with the members of the House of Delegates and the Senate who represent any of the localities. At least 40% of the revenues shall be dedicated to use on residential, urban, and secondary road construction and improvement. Read the Bill »
