ABSTRACT
This article reports that after the U.S. Senate's May 4, 2006 approval of a $109-billion supplemental spending measure, appropriators from that chamber now face difficult discussions on a final bill with the U.S. House, which passed legislation carrying a $91.9-billion price tag. For construction, the Senate package's main items are in its $28.9 billion to continue rebuilding the Gulf Coast after 2005's hurricanes. The White House has said that U.S. President George W. Bush will veto the final supplemental if it exceeds $94 billion.
