WASHINGTON -- A House appropriations subcommittee approved a bill Friday that would provide $2 billion for two state revolving loan fund programs designed to help finance both safed drinking water and sewage treatment projects.

The existing sewage treatment revolving fund would receive $1.3 billion in fiscal 1995, and the proposed safe drinking water revolving fund would receive $700 million under the measure approved by the House Appropriations Committee's veterans affairs, housing and urban developement and independent agencies subcommittee. The total amount is $82 million more than the Clinton Administration requested for fiscal 1995, which begins Oct. 1, and $25 million more than requested for the current fiscal year.
