COLORADO SPRINGS, CO-The National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2003 earmarks about $130 million for various military construction projects in Colorado, most of them in the Colorado Springs/Pueblo area, the two biggest cities south of the Denver metro area. Projects under review, which still must be approved by the full House and Senate, include:

* A possible $18.4 million for Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs to house the newly created Northern Command for homeland defense created after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Northern Command, or NORTHCOM, will oversee defense of the mainland United States in conjunction with NORAD.

* $42 million to construct barracks at Fort Carson in the Springs.

* $38 million for next phase of “demilitarizing” the Pueblo Army Depot.
