BRADENTON, Fla. - Miami-Dade County is preparing to sell $600 million of airport revenue bonds in an offering next week that takes advantage of provisions in the federal stimulus bill that allows the county to sell the debt without being subject to the alternative minimum tax.

The bonds are being sold to support Miami International Airport's ongoing capital improvement program, for which $4.5 billion of debt is outstanding. MIA is considered an important gateway to and from Latin America.
