    “DMV Update”

    Rick Holcomb, Commissioner, Department of Motor Vehicles


    Other than the ABC department, DMV probably has the most face-to-face interactions of any state agency.  In mid-March, all 75 DMV Customer Service Centers were shut down due to the coronavirus and remained closed for about two months.  During the shutdown, DMV Commissioner Rick Holcomb and his staff worked on ways to continue providing services while maintaining a safe environment for their customers and employees.  Holcomb said in a July interview that “Gone are the days when you would walk into a lobby and have hundreds of chairs filled with hundreds of people."  Commissioner Rick Holcomb will give an update on how DMV is delivering its services during the pandemic and how it will do business with the trucking industry in the future, including a new option for CDL renewals.

    “Transportation Funding and Major Projects Update”

    The Honorable Shannon Valentine, Virginia Secretary of Transportation


    Following passage of interstate funding legislation in 2019, the 2020 General Assembly passed legislation to address declining revenues from the gas tax and to provide additional funding for transportation projects across the Commonwealth.  Then the pandemic hit.  Big drops in fuel and sales tax collections created a $121 million shortfall in the last fiscal year and a $750 million shortfall is projected for the next two years.  Secretary of Transportation Shannon Valentine will update us on the impact of the pandemic on future transportation revenues and the status of major projects across the state.
