Michigan Senate's Attitude To DRIC

In case anyone wondered:
  • "The version of HB 5889 passed by the Senate on 17 June 2010 contains the following boilerplate language regarding DRIC:

    Sec 384. On or before March 1, 2011, the department shall report to the state budget director, the house and senate appropriations subcommittees on transportation, and the house and senate fiscal agencies on department activities related to the Detroit River International Crossing. The department shall not make any expenditure, commit to an expenditure, or bind the state to an expenditure, related to the Detroit River International Crossing (DRIC) unless the legislature has enacted specific enabling legislation to allow for the construction of DRIC."
