Governor Hopes For Marlins Stadium Deal Soon

August 29th, 2007 by flanews

     Even as the state struggles with hacking more than a billion dollars from its budget, Governor Charlie Crist says he’d like to see Major League Baseball and leaders in South Florida strike a deal soon on a new Florida Marlins stadium.
     “I think it’s an economic stimulation to our state.  The more entrepreneurial opportunities we have for jobs and job creation and economic stimulus, that’s all good for Florida,” Crist said.  “We’re so fortunate to be in the sunshine state where things are better than they are in other parts of the country.  We just got to keep it going.  So I would support it.”
     The Marlins’ lease agreement at Dolphin Stadium expires after the 2010 season.
