703match of the funds received pursuant to this subsection.
704Matching funds shall come from any port funds, federal funds,

709anticipation certificates, or any other form of indebtedness
710issued by an individual port or appropriate local government
711having jurisdiction thereof, or collectively by interlocal
712agreement among any of the ports, or used to purchase credit
713support to permit such borrowings. However, such debt shall not
714constitute a general obligation of the state. This state does
715hereby covenant with holders of such revenue bonds or other
716instruments of indebtedness issued hereunder that it will not
717repeal or impair or amend this subsection in any manner which

720revenues that are not pledged to the repayment of bonds as
721authorized by this section may be utilized for purposes
722authorized under the Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic
723Development Program. This revenue source is in addition to any
724amounts provided for and appropriated in accordance with s.
725311.07 and subsection (4) (3). The Florida Seaport
726Transportation and Economic Development Council shall approve
727distribution of funds to ports for projects that have been

729access projects identified in the 5-year Florida Seaport Mission
730Plan as provided in s. 311.09(3) and mutually agreed upon by the
731FSTED Council and the Department of Transportation. All
732contracts for actual construction of projects authorized by this
733subsection must include a provision encouraging employment of
734participants in the welfare transition program. The goal for
735employment of participants in the welfare transition program is
73625 percent of all new employees employed specifically for the
737project, unless the Department of Transportation and the Florida
738Seaport Transportation and Economic Development Council
739demonstrate that such a requirement would severely hamper the
740successful completion of the project. In such an instance,
741Workforce Florida, Inc., shall establish an appropriate
742percentage of employees that must be participants in the welfare
743transition program. The council and the Department of
744Transportation are authorized to perform such acts as are
745required to facilitate and implement the provisions of this
746subsection. To better enable the ports to cooperate to their
747mutual advantage, the governing body of each port may exercise
748powers provided to municipalities or counties in s. 163.01(7)(d)
749subject to the provisions of chapter 311 and special acts, if
750any, pertaining to a port. The use of funds provided pursuant to
751this subsection is limited to eligible projects listed in this
752subsection. The provisions of s. 311.07(4) do not apply to any
753funds received pursuant to this subsection. The revenues
754available under this subsection shall not be pledged to the
755payment of any bonds other than the Florida Ports Financing
756Commission Series 1996 and Series 1999 Bonds currently
757outstanding; provided, however, such revenues may be pledged to
758secure payment of refunding bonds to refinance the Florida Ports
759Financing Commission Series 1996 and Series 1999 Bonds. No
760refunding bonds secured by revenues available under this
761subsection may be issued with a final maturity later than the
762final maturity of the Florida Ports Financing Commission Series
7631996 and Series 1999 Bonds or which provide for higher debt
764service in any year than is currently payable on such bonds. Any
765revenue bonds or other indebtedness issued after July 1, 2000,
766other than refunding bonds shall be issued by the Division of
767Bond Finance at the request of the Department of Transportation
768pursuant to the State Bond Act.
769     (6)(5)(a)  Except as provided in paragraph (c), the
770remainder of such revenues must be deposited in the State
771Transportation Trust Fund.
772     (b)  The Chief Financial Officer each month shall deposit
773in the State Transportation Trust Fund an amount, drawn from
774other funds in the State Treasury which are not immediately
775needed or are otherwise in excess of the amount necessary to
776meet the requirements of the State Treasury, which when added to
777such remaining revenues each month will equal one-twelfth of the
778amount of the anticipated annual revenues to be deposited in the
779State Transportation Trust Fund under paragraph (a) as
780determined by the Chief Financial Officer after consultation
781with the Revenue Estimating Conference held pursuant to s.
782216.136(3). The transfers required hereunder may be suspended by
783action of the Legislative Budget Commission in the event of a
784significant shortfall of state revenues.
785     (c)  In any month in which the remaining revenues derived
786from the registration of motor vehicles exceed one-twelfth of
787those anticipated annual remaining revenues as determined by the
788Chief Financial Officer after consultation with the Revenue
789Estimating Conference, the excess shall be credited to those
790state funds in the State Treasury from which the amount was
791originally drawn, up to the amount which was deposited in the
792State Transportation Trust Fund under paragraph (b). A final
793adjustment must be made in the last months of a fiscal year so
794that the total revenue deposited in the State Transportation
795Trust Fund each year equals the amount derived from the
796registration of motor vehicles, less the amount distributed
797under subsections subsection (1) and (2). For the purposes of
798this paragraph and paragraph (b), the term "remaining revenues"
799means all revenues deposited into the State Transportation Trust
800Fund under paragraph (a) and subsections (2) and (3) and (4). In
801order that interest earnings continue to accrue to the General
802Revenue Fund, the Department of Transportation may not invest an
803amount equal to the cumulative amount of funds deposited in the
804State Transportation Trust Fund under paragraph (b) less funds
805credited under this paragraph as computed on a monthly basis.
806The amounts to be credited under this and the preceding
807paragraph must be calculated and certified to the Chief
808Financial Officer by the Executive Office of the Governor.
