Dallas County, Texas voters will decide whether to build the most expensive football stadium in National Football League history under a bond measure signed on April 28, 2003 by Texas Governor Rick Perry. But opposition is already building to the plan, which would raise hotel and car rental taxes in the city of Dallas to among the highest in the nation. While the Cowboys have promoted a countywide sports authority that would include representatives from Dallas and other cities, county commissioners have indicated that they prefer to run the show themselves, bypassing a sports authority.
