Summary as passed: (all summaries)

Transportation construction, operation and maintenance, and funding.  Provides for the construction, maintenance, and funding of transportation by (i) increasing transportation's share of year-end surpluses to 67 percent, and (ii) authorizing the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) to name highways, bridges, interchanges, and other transportation facilities for private entities if an annual naming rights fee is paid, with the revenue dedicated to highway maintenance and operation. The bill also charges the CTB with greater responsibilities involving integration of land use and transportation planning and authorizes the CTB to withhold federal and state funds for certain local or regional capital improvement projects if those projects are inconsistent with the Statewide Transportation Plan or the Six-Year Improvement Program. Provision is made for use of "revenue-sharing" funds for secondary highway system maintenance projects carried out by local governments. The bill provides for special allocations by the CTB for bridge reconstruction, high priority highway projects, and reconstruction of highways with particularly deteriorated pavements. Finally, the bill establishes an annual $50 license tax for electric motor vehicles registered in the Commonwealth. This bill is identical to HB 1248.
