Founded in 1985, the Miami Project has been a funding darling for leaders of both political parties, including Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez, Senate President Kathleen Passidomo, Senate Democratic Leader Lauren Book and Speaker-designate Danny Perez.
But this year, the House is offering $1 million to the project in nonrecurring funds – half of what Sen. Ana Maria Rodriguez and Rep. Vicki Lopez requested – on top of about $13 million in recurring financing.
The Senate, meanwhile, apportioned just $250,000.
