ISSUES: FIU Expansion Plan

Wednesday night, Miami-Dade County Commissioners overwhelmingly backed a referendum that would allow Florida International University to expand its main campus, while relocating the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair at Tamiami Park. If county voters approve this question on the November ballot, FIU, through the state budget, would pay 900 million dollars for the new campus and would also have to finance the youth fair’s move.
