Construction Spending Showing Promise

Despite any impact
from the COVID-19 pandemic, construction spending is still largely managing to

May was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of  $1.356 trillion, down 2.1 percent from April's
$1.386 trillion rate. The April rate was revised significantly higher from the
$1.346 trillion originally reported. On an annual basis, spending was 0.3
