Senator SENN proposed the following amendment (491R004.SP.SS):

Amend the joint resolution, as and if amended, by adding an appropriately numbered new SECTION to read:

/SECTION __. There is established in the State Treasury the Intermodal Container Transfer Facility Infrastructure Account. This account is separate and distinct from the general fund of the State and all other funds. The account shall consist of the proceeds collected from the five dollar per container user fee charged for using the Intermodal Container Transfer Facility. The account shall be used by the Department of Transportation for infrastructure projects. Of the projects funded from this account, ninety percent of the projects must be to offset impacts caused by truck and rail traffic. Ten percent must be projects related to environmental mitigation. Earnings and interest on this account must be credited to it, and any balance at the end of a fiscal year carries forward to the account in the succeeding fiscal year. /
