TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Voters may get a say in whether tax dollars can be used to renovate the Miami Dolphins football stadium.
A Florida Senate panel on Wednesday unanimously approved a measure (SB 306) that would guarantee $3 million a year for the next 30 years to help pay for upgrades at Sun Life Stadium. But the committee changed the bill to require a referendum before local bed taxes can be used for the project.
The legislation still must go through two more Senate committees before it reaches the full Senate.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross wants to use state and local to help pay for $400 million worth of renovations. Backers contend it will help bring back the Super Bowl to the area. The Miami Hurricanes also play at Sun Life.
