Stephen Ross forms political action committee

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has formed a Florida-based political action committee, according to a report. Ross, who was spurned by the Florida House of Representatives in an effort to receive public money for stadium renovations, will assist in a "non-partisan effort" in certain state races.

Stephen Ross is angry, and when you anger a billionaire, things can get rough for you, especially when you are a political official. After the Florida House of Representatives failed to take a vote on the Miami Dolphins' request for a public referendum on applying public funding to Sun Life Stadium renovations thanks to a refusal by Speaker Will Weatherford to bring the bill to the floor, Ross was clearly incised.

After the failure in early May, Ross released a statement, which concluded:

In the future, I will look to play an important role in fixing the dysfunction in Tallahassee and will continue to work to create good jobs in Miami Dade and throughout South Florida.

According to the website Politico, Ross has formed a Florida-based political action committee. With Ross looking to create jobs in South Florida, and fix dysfunction in Tallahassee, the PAC's stated goals of supporting the re-election of Governor Rick Scott, who has been trumpeting the 7% unemployment rate in Florida recently, and will make "non-partisan" efforts in specific state races.

Weatherford's reelection will probably be one of those specific races.

The new PAC actually began operations last week with a series of mailings focusing on the jobs the renovations to Sun Life Stadium would have created, as well as the revenue that would have been generated if the Super Bowl had been awarded to South Florida.
