Budgets for 2012 construction programs will be pinched in the House. Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers (R-Ky.) on May 11 said 2012 nondefense spending would be cut $47.4 billion from 2011. He specified how funds will be split among subcommittees. The Transportation-Housing panel was cut $7.7 billion, or 14%. Most line-item levels haven’t been determined yet. House-Senate talks will set final figures.
