TALLAHASSEE -- The House and Senate are playing a waiting game over bills to give tax-breaks to a raft of stadiums and sports complexes, including Orlando's proposed soccer stadium.

On Thursday, House Speaker Will Weatherford told reporters his chamber wasn't taking any action on its Dolphins bill because the Senate hadn't voted out its broader alternative.

But Sen. Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando, was miffed about that comment Friday, and delayed debate on that Senate alternative -- a stadium-subsidy bill that requires the state Department of Economic Opportunity to review how Orlando stacks up next to incentive pitches by the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, Daytona International Speedway and other sports teams or cities.

Orlando’s hope of securing $2 million annually to help finance a $110 million Major League Soccer stadium near downtown appears tied to the broader Senate plan.

While the House wants to just pass a $350 million sales tax-rebate for the Dolphins to renovate Sun Life Stadium, the Senate wants to create a more rigorous review process that would force all those teams to justify why they needed the tax-breaks, and devote about $13 million annually for them to split. It also would repeal a banking tax-break that would net the state just over $13 million annually, a repeal the House is less interested in passing.

But the Senate has so far postponed a final vote on its bill, despite heavy lobbying by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer’s office.

"I saw some of the comments that somebody's 'waiting for a bill.' The last time I checked they don't even have anything on the calendar that would match up with what we have," Gardiner said Friday after the Senate adjourned for the weekend.

Gardiner said without the House removing its bills from committee, there was no reason to send them the Senate bill since it could be referred to a committee on a point of order.

"We're kind of waiting to see if they put anything on the calendar that could match up, because right now nothing matches up," Gardiner said.

"I think everybody knows where the Senate is. We have a proposal. It's been sitting there waiting for two weeks, and they don't even have anything in play that could even be used," he added. "If we're going to talk about why we're waiting, then get your bills out of committee and put them in position where you can match up.

"I'm not upset about anything. I know we've got a good product. We'll see what happens next week."
