Summary as introduced:
Richmond Metropolitan Authority (RMA). Relocates the RMA "charter" from Title 33.1 (where it is incorporated by reference, but not set out) to Title 15.2, and sets out the text in full. The bill eliminates a provision in present law requiring the approval of the Richmond-Petersburg Turnpike Authority for connection of an Authority-controlled highway to the Richmond-Petersburg Turnpike. In connection with "operation of vehicle for transportation of persons or property for compensation" on Authority facilities, a reference to the State Corporation Commission has been changed to the Department of Motor Vehicles. A requirement that no action be taken by the Authority to contravene any bond indenture governing the Richmond-Petersburg Turnpike has been removed. A further reference to the Richmond-Petersburg Turnpike in connection with exercise of the power of eminent domain by the Authority is also removed. References to "the State Highway Commission" are changed to "the Commonwealth Transportation Board." The bill also removes the definition of "Commonwealth" and alphabetizes the remaining definitions. It also renumbers the subdivisions of the section that sets forth the powers of the Authority. An anachronistic reference to the Virginia Constitution of 1902 is updated to refer to the parallel provision of the Virginia Constitution of 1971. Present 33-225.44:25 dealing with the relationship between the RMA and the Richmond-Petersburg Turnpike Authority is not carried forward into Title 15.2, since other sections already deal with the relationship of the RMA to the Commonwealth Transportation Board. The bill contains numerous technical changes.
