President Trump has signed a $1.4-trillion, two-bill spending package that will keep federal agencies, including their construction programs, operating through Sept. 30. 2020, the end of the current fiscal year. The spending picture was mixed for infrastructure accounts: some, like Army Corps of Engineers civil works, received boosts over their 2019 levels, but others, like transit capital grants, were cut. For the Federal Transit Administration, appropriators pared FTA’s overall budget 4%, to $12.9 billion. The big hit came in FTA Capital Investment Grants, which fund new transit starts, which was trimmed by 22%. Lawmakers cut back hard on General Services Administration public buildings construction, providing just $152.4 million for 2020. All of that funding is for a new border port of entry in San Luiz, Ariz. By comparison, GSA construction received $958.9 million in fiscal 2019.
