Detroit News: Peters seeks funding for customs plazas in Michigan

Washington — As Congress sets its spending priorities this week, U.S. Sen. Gary Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, is seeking a budget reserve for future spending authorization at customs plazas and ports of entry.

If approved, the amendment would create a deficit-neutral reserve fund in the federal budget that may be used for construction or increased staffing at ports of entry, such as the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron — which is awaiting an expanded customs plaza — and the new U.S.-Canada crossing planned at Detroit-Windsor.
