PHOENIX -- A legislative panel may be ready to jettison plans to try to build a border fence, having gathered less than $265,000 in donations over three years.Rep. David Stevens, R-Sierra Vista, co-chair of the committee, said Wednesday that the original plan, approved by lawmakers in 2011, may be unworkable. It envisioned a new fence on private property, with the consent of landowners, which could cover about a third of the 370-mile international border.
