PROPOSALS FOR SPENDING FUNDS IN IRAQ

Associated Press
December 21, 2003

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Congress has approved $18.6 billion in taxpayer funds for reconstruction in Iraq. Here is a breakdown of how the money might be spent:

The main spending includes $5 billion for new electricity generation and transmission; $4 billion each for water projects and security; $1 billion for oil sector repairs; and $500,000 for telecommunications.

Some of the higher-impact proposals include:

A new gas turbine electricity generation plant at the northern town of Badoosh, and three others in Baghdad; each costing more than $100 million.

A water treatment and accompanying sewage plant to serve Baghdad's Shiite slum area, Sadr City, which now has neither; cost, $10-20 million each.

A modern sanitary landfill for Baghdad, where the city's municipal waste can be dumped and buried; cost, $20-30 million.

Repairs to the aging Mosul dam on the Tigris River; cost, about $40 million.
