The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) along with Northern Virginians like me, appreciate the significant efforts made by the Governor and the General Assembly in their 2007 provision of a dedicated funding source for Northern Virginia (HB 3202).
Unfortunately, on February 29, 2008, the Virginia Supreme Court ruled that the General Assembly did not have a constitutional basis for delegating taxing authority to the NVTA.
As a result, Northern Virginia is unable to address its worsening congestion. The implications for the region\'s and the state\'s economies are potentially disastrous.
I support the Authority\'s Eight Principles which should be used to shape all future transportation funding in Northern Virginia.
Unfortunately, iPetition has a 1000 word limit so there is not enough room to print the principles on this page, but the Eight Principles can be found at: http://www.thenovaauthority.org
When signing the petition, a box will appear asking for a \"donation.\" This is a feature of iPetition\'s free service that is unrelated to NVTA\'s petition and no donation is required to sign.
