The final agreement between the city of Arlington, Texas, and the Dallas Cowboys sets a firm cap for the city's contribution at $325 million for the National Football League team's 75,000-seat, retractable-roof stadium. The city will finance its ball of the stadium's estimated $650 million cost with special tax revenue bonds supported by a voter-approved increase in Arlington's hotel and car rental taxes. The Cowboys are responsible for any costs overruns. The Arlington City Council is expected to approve the 150-page final agreement at its regular session on Tuesday night.
