Reference is to Printer's Date 6/2/15-H.

Amend the bill, as and if amended, SECTION 4, by striking Proviso 118.17 and inserting:

/      118.17.      (SR: Supplemental Nonrecurring Revenue) (A)      The source of revenue appropriated in subsection (B) is nonrecurring revenue generated from the following source:
           (1)      $150,000,000 from Fiscal Year 2014-15 unobligated general fund revenue as certified by the Board of Economic Advisors.
     This revenue is deemed to have occurred and is available for use in Fiscal Year 2015-16 after September 1, 2015, following the Comptroller General's close of the state's books on Fiscal Year 2014-15.
     (B)      The State Treasurer shall disburse the following appropriations by September 30, 2015, for the purposes stated:
           (1)      U12      Department of Transportation
           State-Owned Secondary Road
           Program            $145,882,838
           (2)E24 - Office of Adjutant General
           Emergency Management            Division - 2014 Winter Storm Local            Matching Funds            $4,117,162.

     (C)      The Department of Transportation shall distribute the $145,882,838 appropriated above for the State-Owned Secondary Road Program pursuant to Section 12-28-2740 of the 1976 Code. County Transportation Committees shall utilize the funds distributed pursuant to this proviso solely for use on the state-owned secondary road system for paving, rehabilitation, resurfacing and/or reconstruction, and bridge repair, replacement, or reconstruction. No funds from this allocation shall be used for any road, bridge, or highway that is not part of the state owned system.
     Unexpended funds appropriated pursuant to this subsection may be carried forward to succeeding fiscal years and expended for the same purposes.
     (D)      From the funds appropriated above for 2014 Winter Storm Local Matching Funds, local governments shall receive allocations to offset storm cleanup expenses resulting from the winter storms during states of emergency declared by Executive Orders 2014-06 and 2014-11. Expenses eligible for reimbursement are those incurred by county and municipal governments and deemed eligible for reimbursement by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), but were not reimbursed due to local match requirements. The amount reimbursed to each eligible local government shall be 25% of their Total Non-Federal Aid Share. The intent of the General Assembly is for the local government to pay at least 75% of the Total Non-Federal Aid Share. Any winter storm funds that are not expended must be transferred to the Department of Transportation, State-Owned Secondary Road Program, to be distributed in the same manner as set forth in subsection (C).      /
