hybrid vehicles, but excluding natural gas-powered vehicles.
13
Summary of HB 2313
Statewide Component:
 Dedicates potential federal revenues that would become available if
Congress enacts the Marketplace Equity Act, which grants states
legal authority to collect out-of-state sales taxes. If Congress does
not pass the Act by January 1, 2015, the wholesale gas tax (not

Imposes a 2% Transient Occupancy Tax (hotel tax).
Imposing a regional congestion fee (grantors tax) of $0.15 per $100 valuation.
70% will be provided to NVTA for:
• regional projects included TransAction 2040 or future updates that have also
been evaluated by VDOT for reducing congestion, or
• mass transit capital projects that increase capacity.
• The VDOT evaluation is not required for funds received in FY 2014.
 30% of funds will be distributed to localities to spend on urban or secondary road
construction, capital improvements that reduce congestion, projects included in
TransAction 2040 or its future updates, or for public transportation purposes.
15
Summary of HB 2313
Northern Virginia Regional Component:
 Localities must enact a Commercial and Industrial Property (C&I) at $.125 per
$100 valuation or dedicate an equivalent amount for transportation. Localities
that do not or do so at a lower rate will have these revenues reduced by a
corresponding amount.
 Requires NVTA and its member jurisdictions to work with the towns when
implementing these provisions to ensure that towns receive their respective share
of transportation project revenues.
 Repeals the local option to enact a 1% income tax by referendum.
 Estimate annual revenues = ~$300 million.
 FY 2014 Revenues = ~$275 million.
• $190 million (regional)
• $ 85 million (local)
16
Summary of HB 2313
Northern Virginia Regional Component:
 Includes language stating that the regional funds will expire if the
General Assembly appropriates or transfers any of the additional
revenues for any non-transportation-related purpose. Localities that
use the funds for non-transportation purposes would not receive any
of the regional transportation funding in the following year.
 Requires localities receiving these funds to maintain the current level
of local transportation funding in the future. If a locality does not
contribute this minimum level of local funding, they would not receive
any of the regional transportation funding in the following year.
 Existing Code requires that the locality generally benefit from the
revenues raised in the locality.

Implementation of HB 2313

Implementation, Public Outreach and Organizational) to assist it in
implementing HB 3202.

representatives and transportation and planning agency
representatives.

Working groups are evaluating various tasks that will be needed for
NVTA to become fully functional again.
18
Qualifying for Local Portion
 Localities must enact a Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Property Tax at
$.125 per $100 valuation or dedicate an equivalent amount for
transportation.
• Loudoun has opted to dedicate $.02 of the tax rate as the means for
an equivalent amount for transportation
 Place revenues in a separate fund for these revenues.
 If total amount set aside is not = to 100% of C&I Tax (at $.125) share of
30% funding must be adjusted proportionally.
 Revenues not claimed will be redistributed with regional funds.
19
Initial Project Selection – FY 2014
NVTA has also began discussing the implementation of projects with FY 2014 funding.
 NVTA forwarded about 50 projects to the Project Implementation and Legal Working
Groups to evaluate the list and ensure compliance with HB 2313 requirements.
 The working groups evaluated the submissions and provided a draft list of projects at
the May NVTA meeting.
 The NVTA is seeking public comment on the list and is having an Open House/Public
Hearing on the projects on June 20.
 NVTA may amend the list and have another public hearing in July.
