dismiss, VPA states that it is a political subdivision of the 

Commonwealth of Virginia.

    VPA certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of 

this transaction will not exceed those that would qualify it as a Class 

III rail carrier and further certifies that its projected annual 

revenues will not exceed $5 million.
