"(2) $80,000,000 shall annually be distributed from the fund to the regional transit authorities organized under chapter 161B or predecessor statutes in each fiscal year, provided that in fiscal year 2014 those funds shall be provided for the purpose of forward funding said regional transit authorities and provided further that the minimum required transfer provided herein shall be adjusted by the percentage, if any, by which the Consumer Price Index for the proceeding year exceeds the Consumer Price Index for the calendar year that ends before such preceding year.”
