Senate Bill Would Transfer VA Project Oversight to Corps

The Hill reports that an amendment to the Senate defense bill would transfer oversight of any U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs construction project larger than $100 million to the Army Corps of Engineers. The amendment is reportedly sponsored by the Colorado senators, who are responding to the problem-plagued Aurora, Colorado VA hospital project. We previously wrote about AGC of America’s unprecedented position supporting this very step. The Senate bill will still need to be merged with the House bill.
