US construction spending barely up as homebuilding tumbles
U.S. construction spending barely rose in February as outlays on private residential construction projects recorded their biggest decline in seven months, a sign that severe weather continues to hobble the economy. Construction spending edged up 0.1 percent to an annual rate of $945.7 billion, the Commerce Department said on April 1. Construction spending in January was revised to show a 0.2 percent drop instead of the previously reported 0.1 percent gain.
