Some lawmakers are considering taking control of the Orlando Veterans Affairs Hospital project away from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The project is $100 million over budget and has missed its scheduled completion date.

Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.) is reluctant to turn the project over to another government agency such as the Army Corps of engineers, however, and said he would consider hiring a private entity to assume control.
