Under legislation approved by the Texas Senate, Dallas County voters could decide whether to support bonds for a 650 million dollars football stadium for the National Football League's Dallas Cowboys.The enabling legislation allows the county to vote on the creation of a sports authority that would levy hotel and car rental taxes to pay off the revenue bonds. However, hoteliers and car rental firms in Dallas are concerned about raising Dallas' hotel tax to the highest among major convention cities. The new stadium, designed to be a year-round entertainment attraction, is tentatively expected to open in 2009.
