Voters reject Astrodome plan


It was once called the "Eighth Wonder of the World, " but now it appears the Astrodome is headed for the scrap heap.

The Houston Chronicle reports voters rejected a bond measure that would pay for a renovation of the aging stadium.

$217,000,000 in bond sales would have covered conversion of the dome into a convention center.

Harris county commissioners have said the stadium would be demolished if the bond measure failed
