Florida legislature turns down new stadium for Marlins again

For the sixth time, the Florida State Legislature rejected an attempt to gain state funding to help finance a new stadium for the Florida Marlins.

The latest setback came despite the backing of new Gov. Charlie Crist, a sports enthusiast who believes professional sports provide good economic anchors. Crist's first job after law school was as an attorney for minor league baseball.

"I have a warm spot in my heart for baseball, so I think we ought to keep trying," said Crist. He wouldn't rule out adding the issue to next month's special 10-day session on property taxes.

No word if the Legislature would approve funding for a new stadium if the Marlins promised to start their season every fourth year in early January.
