Sun Life Stadium 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 proposed modernization of Sun Life Stadium hasn’t even been finalized but the Miami Dolphins organization is moving forward and planning a job fair to makes sure the project has a diverse local workforce.
The Florida Senate has approved a bill that grants a sales tax exemption and allows Miami-Dade County voters to decide on using tourist dollars to help with the renovations to Sun Life Stadium.
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 ink is still drying on the agreement between Miami-Dade County and the Miami Dolphins to send a stadium renovation deal to the voters, but if you want to have a chance to vote in the special election, you have precious little time to make sure you’re registered to vote.
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 National Football League is holding South Florida hostage for stadium upgrades to Sun Life Stadium in exchange for future Super Bowls. Part of the funding for those games would be from tourist/hotel tax hikes, just don’t ask the NFL to pay those taxes, according to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald.
A bill to help renovate Sun Life Stadium got one step closer to the end zone Friday after the House Finance and Tax Subcommittee passed a new sales tax rebate and hotel bed tax for upgrades to the decades old 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.
