ABSTRACT
The article reports that spending bills for fiscal year 2007 are moving in the U.S. House, and the numbers for construction are not looking bright. So far, bills approved by the House or its appropriations committee call for cuts in the Corps of Engineers civil works program and Environmental Protection Agency water infrastructure. By May 22, 2006, the House had passed two of its 11 spending bills for 2007. Fiscal hawks won a point of order May 19 that sliced $507 million in "contingency" defense construction from the Military Quality of Life-VA bill. They may try similar moves on some of the remaining appropriations measures.
