semi-OT - Florida Senate Approves Measure To Fund Sun Life Upgrades

I reckon Loria learned ‘em well.

The Miami Dolphins are getting early support from state legislators to use tax dollars to renovate Sun Life Stadium.

A Florida Senate panel on Tuesday unanimously approved a measure (SB 306) that would guarantee $3 million a year for the next 30 years to help pay for stadium upgrades. It’s just the first vote, however, with a final vote coming during the session that starts in March.

But the swift approval could be a sign that the Republican-controlled Legislature will support the deal despite past objections to helping out South Florida sports franchises.

It's football. In Florida, that makes all the difference.
