This was the bill that included all Florida teams. The vote was 38 yay to 74 nay. Even Lopez-Cantera voted against it, so there must have been some non-Marlins friendly stuff added in or something.

It was amended, this morning, to only include as "professional sports franchises" NBA or NHL. Rep. Garcia withdrew as a co-sponsor also. I believe it turned non-Marlins related because of yesterday's favorable vote on the other Marlins related bill.
