Northern Virginia Transportation Authority; regional transportation plan. Requires the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (the Authority) to annually publish on its website any land use or transportation elements of a locality's comprehensive plan that each locality embraced by the Authority is currently required to report when such locality's plan is inconsistent with the Authority's regional transportation plan. Additionally, the bill requires the Authority to consider for revision and revise as necessary its regional transportation plan at least once every five years. In the procedures for such consideration for revision, the Authority is required to certify that the plan would reduce congestion in Planning District 8 to the greatest extent practicable or, if unable to so certify, specify the reasons and any need for cooperation by other regional entities.
