From the Document: "Congress authorizes and funds the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to undertake civil works activities, including planning and construction of water resource projects and maintenance of navigation improvements and other infrastructure (e.g., multipurpose dams). USACE has an estimated $109 billion construction backlog, as well as authorized but unfunded investigations and operation and maintenance (O&M) activities. Division J, Title III, of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA; P.L. [Public Law] 117-58), which became law on November 15, 2021, provided $17.1 billion in emergency appropriations to various USACE accounts[.] [...] Issues for Congress may include USACE implementation of IIJA funds and long-term oversight of implementation."
