Commonwealth Transportation Investment Fund. Creates the Commonwealth Transportation Investment Fund and dedicates to it one-third of all insurance license tax revenues, to be used for transportation projects throughout the Commonwealth. The Commonwealth Transportation Board is authorized to issue revenue bonds provided that the total face amount of bonds issued in any fiscal year shall not exceed two-thirds of the amount of insurance license tax revenues estimated to be dedicated in that year. The proceeds of the bonds shall be allocated among various transportation modes according to the formula under current law. All other revenues in the Fund not needed to pay debt service on the bonds, are allocated for transportation construction projects among the several highway systems of the Commonwealth according to the formula under current law. The particular transportation projects to be funded shall be determined by the Commonwealth Transportation Board. The bill also increases from $800 million to $1.2 billion the amount of Commonwealth of Virginia Federal Highway Reimbursement Anticipation Notes that were authorized in 2000 and dedicated to transportation projects, and makes other changes to transportation projects that were authorized in 2000.
