"Revenue-sharing" funds for highway systems in certain counties, cities, and towns. Provides that, from additional revenues made available by the General Assembly after January 1, 2008, and appropriated for the improvement, construction, or reconstruction of the systems of state highways, the Commonwealth Transportation Board must make an equivalent matching allocation to any county, city, or town for designations by the governing body of up to $1 million in county, city, or town general funds for use by the county, city, or town to construct or improve the highway systems within such county, city, or town. After adopting a resolution supporting the action, the governing body may request revenue-sharing funds to construct or improve a highway system located in another locality, between two or more localities, or to bring subdivision streets, used as such prior to July 1, 1992, up to standards sufficient to qualify them for inclusion in the state primary and secondary system of highways. All requests for funding shall be accompanied by a prioritized listing of specific projects. In allocating these funds, the Board must give priority (i) first when such project is administered by the county, city, or town, either directly or by contract with another entity, (ii) second when such county, city, or town commits more local funding than the amount of revenue-sharing funding requested, and (iii) third when the allocation will accelerate an existing project in the Six-Year Improvement Program or the locality's capital plans. Any funds remaining may be applied to any other project that requires an equivalent matching allocation from the governing body. Read the Bill »
