Five public employees were named in a 34-count federal grand jury indictment involving reconstruction and expansion of the $4 billion Jefferson County, Alabama sewer system, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Alabama. Two major transportation projects aimed at relieving severe congestion in Florida--a $1.46 billion light-rail project in Hillsborough County and an $842.5 million heavy-rail extension project in Miami-Dade County--were not funded in the U.S. Department of Transportation's 2006 budget sent to the U.S. Congress.
