SSE And The BankAtlantic Center Applaud The Position Of The Broward County Commission As It Relates To The Miami Dolphins Request For Broward County Tax Dollars

by Staff Writer / Florida Panthers
SUNRISE, Fla. - Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today that it applauds the position of the Broward County Commission as it relates to the Miami Dolphins’ request to change a Florida state law and use Broward County tax dollars to fund a renovation of the team’s stadium in Miami-Dade. SSE president & COO Michael Yormark appeared before the Broward County Commission this morning to underscore SSE/BankAtlantic Center’s opposition to the Dolphins’ request.

 
“SSE and the BankAtlantic Center applaud the position of the Broward County Commission as it relates to the Miami Dolphins’ cross-county request to use Broward County tourist tax dollars to supplement a multi-million dollar renovation on the team’s stadium in Miami-Dade County,” Yormark said. “The Dolphins clearly intend to turn their stadium in to a multi-purpose entertainment facility that can compete with the BankAtlantic Center for entertainment programming. So their request is, in effect, to use Broward County tax dollars to help a privately owned Miami-Dade facility compete with a publicly owned facility in Broward County. As such, we remain vehemently opposed to that request.”
