The article presents information that the voters in the Southeast region will be weighing in on more than $5 billion of bond requests next week, including nearly $3 billion of general obligation bonds on the ballot in Miami-Dade County, Florida. School funding needs have pushed officials in several major metropolitan areas to ask voters to approve bonds for those projects. Aside from Miami-Dade, a dozen other referendum questions seeking $475 million in bond authorizations are on ballots elsewhere in Florida on November 2. A majority of the debt, $306 million, is being sought in five of the state's fastest-growing areas to preserve undeveloped land, access to waterfront, and even a zoo, from potential development.
