The United States House Natural Resources Committee cancelled its debate on a bill clearing the path for two new casinos in southern Michigan. Disputes among the Michigan representatives postponed action until early next year.
The Bay Mills Indian Community hopes to build a resort casino in Port Huron on the site of the current Edison Inn. The location is at the foot of the Sarnia's Blue Water Bridge opposite the Point Edward Charity Casino.
The Sault Tribe hopes to build a $350-million project in Romulus near Detroit. Plans call for a casino, hotel and conference center.
The bill is supported by Representatives John Dingell of Dearborn, Bart Stupak of Menominee, and Candice Miller of Harrison Township. It is opposed by Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick and John Conyers of Detroit.
