Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

1. That the Code of Virginia is amended by adding a section numbered 46.2-2011.1 as follows:

46.2-2011.1. Issuance of temporary authority.

To enable the provision of service for which there is an immediate and urgent need to a point or between points in Virginia where certificated carriers are unable to perform the service, or within a territory having no certificated carrier, the Department may, in its discretion and without hearings or other proceedings, grant temporary authority for such service by a carrier that would otherwise be required to obtain a certificate of public convenience and necessity under this title. Such temporary authority, unless suspended or revoked for good cause, shall be valid for such time as the Commission shall specify, but for not more than an aggregate of 180 days, and shall create no presumption of public convenience and necessity or that corresponding permanent authority will be granted thereafter.

2. That an emergency exists and this act is in force from its passage.
