CHICAGO - Despite a listless economy, voters in Michigan approved a slew of bond proposals and levy increases in Tuesday's elections, while St. Louis voters approved a $275 million revenue bond proposal to fund a multibillion sewer capital program.

Bond proposals on Ohio's special election ballots did not fare as well, with voters rejecting most of the 15 school bond proposals. Voters also defeated a number of tax increase proposals that would have funded local school districts' capital projects and helped some districts avoid operating deficits.
