Transportation Funding. Creates a statewide approach to transportation funding. The bill repeals the regional sales tax and gas tax enacted in 2013 to fund transportation initiatives in Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia, and raises the statewide gas tax by three percent to fund transportation generally. The bill has a delayed effective date of July 1, 2020, and directs the Secretary of Transportation to report to the Governor and the chairmen of the House Committees on Appropriations and Transportation and the Senate Committees on Finance and Transportation regarding changes necessary to existing transportation funding allocations to honor existing contracts and debt service obligations.
