Hopefully other stadiums will catch on to these practices. Although initially more expensive, it will save money in the long run as well was preserve the environment.

Jacksonville Jaguars want $2 million annual Florida sales tax rebate for 30 years

Jacksonville Jaguars want $2 million annual Florida sales tax rebate for 30 years | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it

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. (Monday, 1 p.m., 110 Senate Office Building, The Capitol.)
