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 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.
