Oops, wrong billionaire

The Florida State House will vote today on giving the Marlins a 30-year, $2 million a year tax rebate to help fund a new stadium. Even if the bill passes, however, the state senate is dead set against the stadium subsidy, in no small part because the state is already handing out $2 million a year – until the year 2023 – to former Marlins owner Wayne Huizenga, who spent $10 million of it on renovating Pro Player Stadium for baseball, and is now pocketing the surplus.
