HB 1511 -- STATE TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANCE REVOLVING FUND

CO-SPONSORS:  Broach, Backer

COMMITTEE ACTION:  Voted "do pass" by the Committee on
Transportation by a vote of 15 to 3.

This bill creates a State Transportation Assistance Revolving

the General Assembly and also receive any gifts, contributions,

This fund will be administered by the Highway and Transportation
Commission, which will have the power to loan moneys to
political subdivisions or to any public or private not for
profit organization or entity for:  (1) the planning,
acquisition, development and construction of facilities for
transportation by air, water, rail, or mass transit;  (2) the

transit purposes.  No moneys in the fund can be used for the
payment of the operating expenses of a transportation facility
or for the construction or maintenance of state highways.

The commission, by rule, will establish procedures, conditions,
and repayment terms for any loans or grants provided.  Loaned
funds and interest repaid will be deposited in the state
treasury to the credit of the state transportation assistance
revolving fund and may be used by the commission for other
eligible projects.
