The push to build a new bridge connecting Detroit and Windsor appears dead.
The Associated Press reports:
A final effort to pass a measure this year that could have cleared the way for a second bridge connecting Detroit and Canada has failed.
Democrats in the Michigan Senate wanted a vote on the issue Thursday, likely the final day of the Legislature's 2009-10 session. But a motion to discharge the legislation and send it to the Senate floor failed, getting only 11 votes in the 38-seat Senate dominated by Republicans.
