Project Description:








To award an annual appropriation of $250,000 to each of the five Collegiate Bowl Organizations in the State of Florida.  In any year where any Bowl hosts a National Championship game, then such year the legislature would be awarding $1,000,000 to that Bowl Organization, while awarding the other four $250,000.  Among the many services that will be provided that will benefit the state are (a) significant economic impact through a dramatic increase in out of state tourism, (b) an increase in both national and international media exposure, and (c) an enhancement of the area's positive image.
