SECTION 4.   Section 3 of chapter 6C of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2014 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out paragraphs (47) and (48) and inserting in place thereof the following 3 paragraphs:-

(47) ensure regional equity related to transportation planning, construction, repair, maintenance, capital improvement, development and funding;

(48) designate a representative to act in its interest in labor relations matters with its employees; and

(49) sell, lease, or otherwise contract for advertising, including in or on the facilities of the department.

This section reduces ambiguity by explicitly authorizing the Department of Transportation to sell, lease or otherwise contract for advertising, including on or in its own facilities.
