Methodists endorse Bush library at SMU

Methodist group on Thursday endorsed building George W. Bush's presidential library center at Southern Methodist University, essentially ending opponents' nearly two-year battle.

The largely symbolic votes dashed the last-ditch efforts of the project's opponents, who had presented two petitions to the South Central Jurisdiction to bar the entire library complex or only the public policy institute on the SMU campus. The jurisdiction owns the land.
