Amendment #2 deletes sections 16.8.(a) to 16.8.(e) and replaces them with new terms. Allows the Governor to authorize the Department of Transportation to cancel or modify the Comprehensive Agreement for the I-77 HOT Lanes project in Mecklenburg and Iredell Counties no later than October 15, 2018. If this occurs, requires the Governor to direct the Department of Transportation to allocate from the two sources in this subsection an amount necessary to cover costs, damages, and monetary penalties determined to be owed by the State from the cancellation, not to exceed $620 million. Requires these funds to be placed in a nonreverting account in the Highway Trust Fund. Appropriates these funds. Sets out the two sources of funds as (1) the funds programmed to be distributed under GS 136-189.11(d) for all projects from the State Transportation Improvement Program located wholly in Mecklenburg and/or Iredell County, that are included in the five-year delivery program, not subject to reprioritization, and not solely federally funded projects. Removes projects so unfunded from the State Transportation Improvement Program; and (2) 75% of the funds allocated under GS 136-41.1 and GS 136-41.2 to any municipality in Mecklenburg County and to any municipality located south of the intersection of Houston Road and I-77 in Iredell County. Forbids use of these funds for any other purpose. Effective June 30, 2018. Option for Governor to cancel the Comprehensive Agreement expires on October 15, 2018. The remainder of this section expires when all costs, damages, and penalties from the cancellation of the Comprehensive Agreement are fully paid, and any remaining funds in the nonreverting account are returned to their source.
Deletes Section 16.9, directing the Department of Transportation to study potential funding sources for cancellation or modification of the I-77 Comprehensive Agreement. Deletes Section 7, which amended GS 18B-108 to allow for the sale of alcoholic beverages on ferries.
