Overall construction spending was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $1,064.6 billion in June compared to a revised May estimate of 1,063.5 billion.  The June figure is 12 percent higher than a year earlier when total expenditures were at a rate of $950.3 billion.  It was the fourth consecutive month that the rate of annual spending topped a trillion dollars.
