Chapter 222 of the 2013 Acts of Assembly amended § 33.1-223 of the Code of Virginia to allow guidelines, as opposed to regulations, established by the Commonwealth Transportation Board to be used to administer the Recreational Access Fund Program. This program was originally established by the General Assembly in 1966 to authorize funds for the construction, reconstruction, maintenance, or improvement of access roads to public recreational areas and historical sites, A Program Guide explaining how the program is administered has been included on Virginia Department of Transportation's List of Guidance Documents posted on the Department of Planning and Budget's Regulatory Town Hall.

This regulatory action repeals the Recreational Access Fund Policy to streamline the VDOT's regulatory inventory and render this program consistent with other board funding programs, such as the Revenue Sharing Program, that are administered by means of guidance documents.
