In a win for infrastructure, Congress approved a bill that authorizes navigation, flood control, and drinking water projects around the nation. "Ensuring America's water infrastructure is brought into the 21st century will grow the economy, strengthen our competitiveness, and create jobs," said House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster.

The Senate voted 78 to 21, early on Dec. 10, to approve a bill that authorizes navigation, flood control and drinking water projects. That sent the measure to President Obama to sign into law.

In the end, it disappeared almost as quickly as it had appeared. A giant sinkhole which swallowed a chunk of road the length of a city block in the southwestern Japanese city of Fukuoka has been filled mere days after it appeared.
