We can spend it on enhancing roads, fixing health care. We can invest it in cutting taxes.

Randy Fine, a Republican Politician from Brevard County who championed the compact. “I think to get USD 500 Million, the majority of which will be paid on activities that were currently occurring, I think is a pretty good offer for the state.” FansUnite Home Entertainment Inc.
