U.S. House expected to vote this morning on Stillwater bridge project
The U.S. House of Representative will vote Thursday on a bill to authorize the long-debated four-lane bridge over the St. Croix River near Stillwater, Minn.
The leading opponent, Minnesota Democrat Betty McCollum, concedes there's enough support to pass it.
Because the bill is being expedited, a two-thirds majority is required. McCollum says the chief sponsor, Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann, did her homework and rounded up the votes for it.
