              SECTION 1. Section 19A of Chapter 6A of the General Laws as appearing in the 2010 Official Edition is hereby amended by adding the following:-

              The secretary of transportation is directed to take whatever action is necessary, including but not limited to filing whatever application to the federal government may be required, to implement a program whereby vehicles that do not meet the occupancy criteria of high occupancy vehicle lanes may access said lanes on interstate highway route 93 for a fee.  Any revenue collected from these fees shall be used to offset the debt of the metropolitan highway system attributable to the central artery project and the third harbor tunnel project.
