Summary as introduced:
Transportation funding and administration; Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads.  Eliminates or replaces with state and local funds, fees and taxes, certain fees and taxes for Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads authorized pursuant to Chapter 896 of the Acts of Assembly of 2007 that are within the ambit of the Supreme Court of Virginia's decision on February 29, 2008, that they are unconstitutional.  The bill replaces the Hampton Roads Transportation Authority by transferring its duties to other entities.

The bill also requires VDOT, within 90 days, to issue requests for proposals under PPTA for (i) construction of the Third Crossing of Hampton Roads, (ii) construction of the Southeastern Expressway/Dominion Boulevard system in the City of Chesapeake and the City of Virginia Beach, (iii) replacement of U.S. Route 460 from Bowers Hill in the City of Chesapeake to the City of Petersburg with a controlled access highway, (iv) widening of Interstate Route 64 in the City of Chesapeake from Battlefield Boulevard to Bowers Hill, including the High Rise Bridge over the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River, (v) widening of Interstate Route 64 from Bland Boulevard in the City of Newport News to Virginia Route 199 in James City County, (vi) expansion of the Midtown Tunnel between the City of Norfolk and the City of Portsmouth, and (vii) expansion of the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel between the City of Hampton and the City of Norfolk by construction of a third bridge-tunnel structure.  The bill also provides for a specially selected committee to review proposals submitted and make a recommendation to the General Assembly, VDOT, and the CTB.
