WEST BLOOMFIELD (WKZO) -- U.S. Representative Gary Peters wants his fellow legislators in DC to schedule a House hearing on legislation to authorize funding for a new customs plaza in Detroit. Peters says it is key to the success of the construction of the new International Bridge crossing the Detroit River.

Earlier this week a coalition of groups from the state sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi expressing their support for the legislation. Some of those groups include the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, The Detroit Regional Chamber and the Michigan Farm Bureau.
