Astrodome May be Torn Down in Houston

Voters have rejected a plan to renovate the aging Houston Astrodome, but officials say the wrecking ball i sn't necessarily on its way any time soon. Haris County commissioners say the fate of the world's first air conditioned domed stadium is in limbo after county voters Tuesday turned down a $217 million bond proposal that would have converted it into a convention and events center. The five member panel that governs the county has the ultimate say. No decision expected on the Astrodome's final fate any time soon.
