KATY, Texas (AP) Everything is bigger in Texas, especially high school football stadiums.

Voters in the Houston suburb of Katy will decide Tuesday whether to approve a bond package that includes $69.5 million for a new, 14,000-seat football stadium.

The stadium would serve Katy's powerhouse program, but district officials also say they could attract playoff games and other events. It's on the ballot one year after the Dallas suburb of Allen opened a $60 million stadium with 18,000 seats and dozens of concession stands.

The $99 million in bonds would also pay for a $25 million expansion of an agricultural sciences center and $4.5 million for a science and technology center.

Some local tea party members oppose the bond package, saying the district shouldn't take on more debt.
