Florida lawmakers want to require state's pro sports teams to play national anthem before games

Jan 17, 2022

Playing the National Anthem could soon be required at Florida sporting events.

State Senator Joe Gruters is sponsoring a bill that would require professional sports teams to play the National Anthem before any sporting event if the team enters into a contract with the state that requires a financial commitment.

Failure to play the anthem could require the team repay any money paid to it by the state.
