AURORA, Colo. (AP) — A congressional oversight committee is seeking an inspector general’s investigation into budget overruns at the Veterans Affairs hospital project in Aurora.
According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/mb6fden), Republican Rep. Mike Coffman plans to ask the VA’s inspector general to conduct an investigation.
Contractor Kiewit-Turner has told federal officials the $600 million Aurora hospital actually will cost more than $1 billion to finish.
The Veterans Administration has rejected the contractor’s demands to be let out of the building contract.
