Read at CNN's site today. "According to a summary of the bill, a provision that allows an 80% deduction on tickets for college athletic events is be repealed"
Is the use of "is be repealed" correct? Or is "is to be repealed" the right use?

Looks like a common typing error.
"is to be repealed" or just "is repealed" is fine.

is be repealed makes no sense.

It's merely a typo. You're right, a word was inadvertently left out.Back in the days of print newspapers there were professional proof-reader, Sub-Editors and Editors to check a journo's work.

These days they have to rely on Spellcheck like everyone else and, like everyone else, mistakes are far more frequent in their copy.
