    A Florida Senate committee voted unanimously Tuesday for the Dolphins' stadium bill, in which taxpayers would fund half of a $400-million upgrade to Sun Life Stadium.

    Stadium CEO Mike Dee testified that the renovation would help South Florida attract “four or five Super Bowls and four or five college [football] championship gamesâ€￾ over the next 25 years, according to the Miami Herald.

    Miami is bidding for the 2016 Super Bowl against the 49ers' new Silicon Valley Stadium. NFL owners are expected to choose May 22, putting pressure on the Dolphins to get the stadium bill approved. The bill must clear other committees and the Florida House, where it's expected to meet opposition.
