Raiders staying in Oakland two more seasons, says owner Mark Davis

Sheriff Joe Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said the unanimous vote from the Senate was a "big lift" that showed "they understand the need".

The state Senate has approved it by a 16-5 vote, citing jobs, and now its fate is in the hands of the Assembly.

The Nevada Assembly and Senate on Friday approved a room tax increase created to raise $750 million for construction of a new stadium, clearing the most significant local hurdle that remained in attempts to lure the Raiders from Oakland.

Gov. Brian Sandoval will sign the bill in Las Vegas on Monday.

The Nevada State Assembly is now in session, considering a plan for a new National Football League stadium in Las Vegas that would use $750 million worth of public funds.

Progressive and libertarian grassroots groups pushed back against the stadium, arguing that Nevada could soon face a $400 million budget shortfall and that education and mental health programs' needs should be addressed instead. Lawmakers, who hadn't been warned about the estimate during routine discussions on the project, said they felt blindsided.

"Assemblyman Hansen, technically that's correct", Hill said. It's going to happen, and it doesn't seem to matter if the Raiders play along or not. The city has offered no concrete stadium plan.

Critics pointed out that some outside economists, including Stanford professor and sports economist Roger Noll, have panned the deal as a boondoggle based on outlandish financial expectations.

And that is why Davis wanted to restate his plan on playing in Oakland in 2017 and 2018, while the Las Vegas stadium would be under construction. "It's inappropriately applied here".

The proposed stadium project in Las Vegas would cost approximately $1.9 billion to complete a 64,000 seat stadium.

Las Vegas is about to get robbed, and the version of "Ocean's Eleven" pulling off this heist is masquerading as elected officials and local press.

The deal puts $420 million toward renovating and expanding a dated convention center, which proponents say will help Las Vegas accommodate the largest conferences and keep its edge against competitors like Orlando.
