Sun Life Stadium Deal
The Miami Dolphins delivered a check for more than $4 million last Friday to kick off the push for a special election to approve a tax for renovating Sun Life Stadium. Voters who want to be a part of that decision do face an important deadline Monday.
The biggest thorn in the side of the public financing of Marlins Park was billionaire Norman Braman. With the Dolphins now asking for public money to help renovate Sun Life Stadium, Braman is back to fight against the new stadium deal.
The 11th hour deal between the Miami Dolphins and Miami Dade-County will go to the voters, but the referendum will be on a very condensed schedule.
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.
The battle over renovations to Sun Life Stadium and how to pay for it took center stage in Tallahassee Wednesday. The House Economic Affairs Committee approved legislation to allow the modernization plans to move closer to a full House vote.
