CHANCES IMPROVING FOR BUCS TO STAY IN TAMPA?
Published January 30, 1996
If Bucs owner Malcolm Glazer commits to staying in Tampa, the chances of state approval for taxes to build a new stadium "could improve significantly," according to the TAMPA TRIBUNE. Referring to past opposition to a bill which would authorize restaurant or rental car taxes to build the $168M stadium, state Sen. John Grant said if Glazer "comes to the table to negotiate a deal, I think we'd have a totally different picture." Meanwhile, other FL communities are stepping up efforts to attract the Bucs. In Orlando, Central Florida NFL Committee Chairman Chuck Roe "still is trying to get a meeting with the Bucs" about moving to the renovated Citrus Bowl. In Osceola County, Commission Chairman Charles Owen will meet with representatives from Merrill Lynch again today to discuss ways to finance a $200M stadium (Fay & Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/30).
