2008 House Bill 5808: Appropriations: 2008-2009 Transportation budget (Senate Roll Call 337)
facebook  twitter 

Amendment offered by Sen. Ray Basham (D) on May 27, 2008, to strip out a provision that allows the transportation department to finish a $20 million Detroit River international crossing (DRIC) study, but only on the condition that this does not bind the state in any way to construction or future action on the project. Note: The owner of the Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario has proposed building a second bridge with essentially no Michigan taxpayer dollars; the DRIC project would use state money to build a second bridge a short distance away. The amendment failed 18 to 19 in the Senate on May 27, 2008.
