BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Sen. Charles Schumer says an end may be in sight to the increasingly lengthier waits at the Peace Bridge linking Buffalo and Canada.

Lawmakers have agreed to boost spending for Customs and Border Protection, including the hiring of more border agents. And Schumer said Tuesday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh (jay) Johnson has promised to send some of the new hires to the Peace Bridge.

The bridge between Buffalo and Fort Erie, Ontario, is one of the busiest commercial and passenger crossings along the northern border.
