Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission. Ensures that the moneys in the Hampton Roads Transportation Fund are distributed to the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission and allows the Commission to invest moneys in excess of those required to meet current needs in accordance with applicable law. Allows the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission to spend Hampton Roads Transportation Fund moneys on administrative and operating expenses and removes the requirement that, if no other funds are available, administrative expenses of the Commission be allocated among the localities within Planning District 23 on the basis of relative population. The bill states that it does not result in the expiration of the contingently effective provisions of Chapter 896 of the Acts of Assembly of 2007 or Chapter 766 of the Acts of Assembly of 2013.The bill allows an elected official of any of the four counties embraced by the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission who serves on the county's governing body and has been appointed by resolution of such governing body to represent the county on the Commission to serve on the Commission. Currently, only the chief elected officer of such county may serve on the Commission. The bill also allows a member representing a city or county to designate a current elected officer of the same governing body to serve in his place on the Commission after making such designation to the Chairman and limits such designation to two meetings or 25% percent of the Commission's meetings per year.
