If the referendum passed, the county would increase the mainland hotel rate from 6 percent to 7 percent, then give the Miami Dolphins 75 percent of the new revenue up to $7.5 million in the first year. The cap would increase by 3 percent every year.
After 30 years, the Dolphins would refund the county between $110 million and $120 million.
The deal also hinges on the NFL awarding Super Bowls to Miami.
The Dolphins are paying for the special election, which is expected to cost about $4.8 million amd is scheduled for May 14.
