We read the 81-page proposed agreement between Miami-Dade County and the Miami Dolphins so you don't have to (though hopefully county commissioners will, even though the documents were not publicly available until late, late Tuesday night. The board meets at noon Wednesday).
Here's some of the fine print that did not make it into our story tonight, in no particular order:
--The prime sponsor of the legislation is Commissioner Barbara Jordan, whose district includes the Miami Gardens stadium. Co-sponsors: Commissioners Bruno Barreiro and Jose "Pepe" Diaz.
--The nearly $4.8 million the Dolphins must pay Miami-Dade up front to cover the referendum is non-refundable -- even if the election gets cancelled, as would occur if Florida lawmakers fail to approve Dolphins-backed legislation before the end of the legislative session May 3.
--The proposed referendum language, in an apparent appeal to as many football fans as possible, mentions that the 1987 stadium is home to both the Dolphins and the University of Miami Hurricanes.
--The Dolphins must secure the privately funded portion of the at least $350 million renovation before the county puts in its share (75 percent of the hotel taxes raised by hiking the rate to 7 percent from 6 percent, beginning at $7.5 million in year one of the 26-year payments).
