(1) Beginning in fiscal year 2000-2001 the Department of Transportation shall allocate sufficient funds to implement the Mobility 2000 (Building Roads for the 21st Century) initiative. The department shall develop a plan to expend these revenues and amend the current tentative work program for the time period 2000-2001 through 2004-2005 prior to adoption to include Mobility 2000 projects.
