Public-Private Transportation Act; finding of public interest. Establishes the requirements for a finding of public interest, requires such a finding prior to an initiation of procurement, and establishes the Transportation Public-Private Partnership Steering Committee to determine whether a proposal for the operation and development of a transportation facility serves a public purpose. The bill also requires certification of the finding prior to the execution of a comprehensive agreement and requires the public-private partnership guidelines to incorporate the finding. The bill also requires VDOT to establish (i) a process for identifying high-risk projects and (ii) procurement processes and guidelines for such projects to ensure that the public interest is protected.
