A congressional oversight committee is seeking an inspector general's investigation into budget overruns at the Veterans Affairs hospital project in Aurora.

According to the Denver Post, Republican Rep. Mike Coffman plans to ask the VA's inspector general to conduct an investigation.

Contractor Kiewit-Turner has told federal officials the $600 million Aurora hospital actually will cost more than $1 billion to finish.

The Veterans Administration has rejected the contractor's demands to be let out of the building contract.
