The article reports that the highways, transit and military construction in the United States are in line for solid gains, but the Environmental Protection Agency water infrastructure account will be cut. The U.S. House, under new Appropriations Committee Chairman Jerry Lewis, finished all 11 of its 2006 bills by the July 4, 2005 break. So far, the Senate has added to House totals for some construction accounts. Karen Bachman, Associated General Contractors government affairs director for environment, federal markets and procurement, notes that Senate appropriators put in a lot more for highways, setting a $40.2-billion obligation ceiling.
