Michigan Governor Moves Forward on New International Bridge Crossing

In Michigan voters rejected the constitutional amendment that would have delayed or blocked the planned New International Trade Crossing bridge between Detroit and Windsor, and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder will meet with Canadian officials in the coming days to discuss trade and the new international crossing. Snyder negotiated the deal with the Canadian government to finance construction of the new bridge.
