Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

1. That the second enactment of Chapter 738 of the Acts of Assembly of 2007, as amended by Chapter 864 of the Acts of Assembly of 2008, and as further amended by Chapter 188 of the Acts of Assembly of 2009, is amended and reenacted as follows:

2. That the annual overweight permit fee for each eligible tank wagon vehicle shall be $265 until further comprehensive legislation addressing fees for overweight vehicles is enacted. The Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles, in consultation with the Commissioner of Highways, the Executive Director of the Virginia Port Authority, the Virginia Trucking Association and a representative from the heavy equipment industry, as well as other groups as may be deemed appropriate by the Commissioner, shall develop a uniform system of permitting for overweight and oversize vehicles and a comprehensive, tiered schedule of fees for overweight vehicles, taking into consideration the Virginia Department of Transportation’s research on the cost impact of damage to Virginia’s highways from overweight vehicles, the administrative feasibility of such fee structure, and the impact of such fee structure on the Commonwealth’s economic competitiveness. Such fee structure shall be presented to the Joint Commission on Transportation Accountability by December 15, 2011.
