KATY, Texas (AP) — Voters in a Houston-area school district are being asked to approve a $69 million football stadium that would be the most expensive in state history.
The 14,000-seat stadium in Katy would surpass by $10 million the stadium that opened last year in the North Texas city of Allen.
Katy voters on Tuesday will consider a bond of nearly $100 million that would cover the cost of the stadium along with construction of an agriculture arena and other facilities. But the Houston Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/16Pl2rz ) it's the stadium that's drawing the scrutiny of a local tea party group.
Supporters say the stadium will be used not only by the powerhouse Katy High School Tigers, but also other high schools in a district that's expecting to build at least two more in coming years.
