State and local transportation planning. Provides that in its adoption of any comprehensive plan in Planning District 8 (Northern Virginia) or review of a proposed rezoning in Planning District 8 (Northern Virginia), the Department of Transportation shall consider the transportation impact of the proposed plan or rezoning on any transportation facility for which a reduction in the level of service is anticipated as a result of the proposed plan or rezoning. The bill requires that if the proposed comprehensive plan or rezoning is within Planning District 8 (Northern Virginia), the locality shall propose one or more transportation projects in its local transportation plan, or within the regional transportation plan, to ensure no reduction of service to any transportation facility affected by the plan or rezoning.
