The article reports on the financial support of the city government of Irving in Texas, in the upgrade of the Texas Stadium in Irving, Texas by issuing tax bonds backed by new city taxes paid by the people. Base on the ruling of 101st District Court Judge Jay Paterson the city could issue bonds supported by taxes approved by voters on May 13, 2006. The city will use the bonds to help finance its portion of redevelopment at the arena site, based on a state law that allows cities to collect taxes for construction of sports and community ventures.
