FITTING THE BILL: In Jacksonville, Matt Dixon reported northeast Florida officials “have begun the pitch to secure $2 million in sales tax exemptions for improvements to EverBank Field.” The bill “adds a provision to state law allowing current publicly owned stadiums to be eligible for a $2 million annual sales tax rebate over 30 years ‘in order to meet or exceed the league’s facility standard.’" The team “already has a similar $2 million annual exemption under a law that allows the use of incentive money to keep or retain teams that play at publically owned fields.” That exemption has “12 years left” (JACKSONVILLE.com, 3/18).
