Game Time: Time for FL Lawmakers to Cut Sports Incentives from State Roster

02.11.19 09:19 AM

AFP-FL calls on lawmakers to end corporate welfare for professional sports teams Tallahassee, FL – Americans for Prosperity-Florida (AFP-FL) is calling on the members of the Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee to support S.B. 414 by Senator Tom Lee, a bill that would repeal the Sports Development Fund. The corporate welfare slush fund represents an unneeded and wasteful transfer of funds from taxpayers to professional sports team owners. AFP-FL believes that for the state to maintain a reputation of fiscal responsibility it must do away with policies that allow for harmful corporate welfare. The group sent a key vote alert to the members of the Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee urging them to end the Sports Development Fund. See Letter Here “Corporate welfare puts sports teams ahead of Florida citizens,” said AFP-FL State Director, Skylar Zander. “We applaud Florida lawmakers for fighting to repeal the taxpayer funded slush fund known as the Sports Development Fund. We hope all lawmakers come together to eliminate cronyism and focus on the essential priorities of the state.” AFP-FL will score votes on S.B. 414 in the group’s annual Legislative Scorecard.
