Friend- As you are probably aware, two things have been dominating the news headlines this week—the NFL and government spending. But did you know that the two are more closely linked than one would first assume? In the last two decades, the NFL has received over an estimated $7 billion in taxpayer funding—just for their stadiums. This estimate doesn’t take into account the hundreds of millions of dollars the NFL receives annually in tax-breaks, security costs, tax-free municipal bonds, land grants, and discounted utilities. To give you a point of reference, during the 2016 season, the NFL brought in over $14 billion in revenue. Your opinion is important to me, so I want to know what you think—should taxpayers continue to subsidize the NFL? Yes No I don’t know Click here to take the poll. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me. Your opinion helps shape my thinking as I represent you in Washington.
