The article reports that state revolving loan fund advocates are going to have their work cut out for them to get funding increased in fiscal 2006, which starts next October 1, because lawmakers and the U.S. government under George W. Bush administration are expected to continue to hold down domestic spending. Water infrastructure lobbyists also hope to continue their campaign to win Congressional approval of legislation to authorize increased funding for the wastewater and drinking-water state revolving funds (SRFs). But it will be a challenge since most committees with jurisdiction over the SRFs will be focused on completing highway and transit legislation.
