The article consists of a series of captioned photographs of members of Congress who are currently involved in this fight; a summation of the remarks of Representative Lee Hamilton who addressed the Associated General Contractors of America chapter presidents and vice presidents in April 1989 on infrastructure; comments by Transportation Secretary Samuel K. Skinner on transportation strategy; comments by the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Installations, Robert A.

General Henry Hatch, Chief of Engineers, Army Corps of Engineers, on maintaining and revitalizing the Army's installations and facilities.
