Bill to disrupt Astrodome plans inches forward

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A county plan for a $105 million renovation to the Astrodome is in danger as a state bill cleared a Senate committee Monday.

The bill's author, Sen. John Whitmire, says voters should decide what happens to the landmark.

Whitmire says a majority of people want to demolish the stadium.
