Sun Life Renovation
The Florida House of Representatives adjourned for the day Thursday around 5:45 p.m. without taking up the Sun Life Stadium renovation bill. But, some late maneuvering in the Senate Thursday helped get the stadium bill closer to a vote in the House.
The Florida Senate appears poised to pass the bill needed to renovate Sun Life Stadium, but the Florida House is a much different story.
Twelve hours before a decision needed to be reached between the Miami Dolphins and Miami-Dade County regarding Sun Life Stadium renovations, the two sides have come to an agreement.
The Republican Executive Committee of Miami-Dade County issued a strong message to all local Republicans in the state legislature, don’t even think about voting in favor of the Sun Life Stadium renovation plan.
Eventually, the Miami Dolphins may just write a check for the full amount of the planned renovations to Sun Life Stadium. The team promised Wednesday to pay back some money to the state if taxpayers help pay for the renovations.
The Miami Dolphins drew hometown support Thursday in their quest for a roughly $400 million renovation of Sun Life Stadium.
So far, so good for the Miami Dolphins pitch to the state legislature for a renovation plan for Sun Life Stadium. The bill has passed its first committee hearing Tuesday by a unanimous vote.
