TAMPA, Fla. -- Almost two years after the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce dove head-first into the Rays' Stadium Saga, the influential group will release its findings today on "best practices" to fund a new Rays stadium.
The Tampa chamber teamed up with the St. Pete chamber for the study, dubbing their group of prominent business leaders the "Baseball Stadium Financing Caucus."

While the timing of the announcement could be better - a recent firesale of talent by the Miami Marlins has cast public subsidies of stadiums in a negative light - the group is hoping its ideas can break the stadium stalemate the Rays and the region have been locked in for the last few years.

Wine and football. A measure to give the Miami Dolphins $3 million a year in sales tax rebates and hotel bed tax money has been rapidly advancing through the Legislature.
Now it’s time for the Jacksonville Jaguars to finally hit the field of legislative committee rooms. A proposal (SB 922) by Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, would allow $2 million a year in sales tax rebates for stadium improvements to go to a pro sports team that already receives a similar break. Terms of the deal require a team to plan more than $80 million in upgrades and to have at least 15 years remaining on its stadium lease.
EverBank Field in Jacksonville is one of eight stadiums and arenas in Florida currently receiving sales tax rebates from Florida. The committee will also review the Florida Wine Canister Act (SB 658) that would allow distributors to make and sell "wine kegs" or large containers of wine.
