The Michigan Senate is unlikely to vote this year on a proposed public-private partnership that would clear the way for another bridge to be built between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario.
A spokesman for Republican Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop said Thursday that the senator says there doesn't appear to be consensus on the issue.
If the Senate doesn't vote this year, it would be left to the next Legislature and governor to address the issue starting in 2011.
Bishop hasn't declared the legislation as dead.
The Michigan House earlier this year approved a bill that would let the state enter a partnership with Canada and a private contractor.
The new bridge project is opposed by the private owners of the nearby Ambassador Bridge.
