Senator Tom Coburn Challenges PGA Tour
Posted By Sports Talk Florida News Desk On September 26, 2013 @ 9:55 AM In Golf | No Comments
The bill, according to Businessweek, is framed as a threat to large sports organizations in general that file as nonprofits.
“The PRO Sports Act proposed by the Republican lawmaker would prohibit professional sports organizations with annual revenue of more than $10 million from filing as nonprofit organizations.”
Interestingly, the bill is aimed more at the NFL — because the sports world is the NFL’s and everybody else (read: golf) is just existing in it — but the PGA Tour, NHL, and ATP World Tour were also named.
