CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The Latest on a plan to build an NFL stadium in Las Vegas (all times local):
A plan to put $750 million in hotel tax dollars toward an NFL stadium in Las Vegas has cleared the Nevada Legislature and heads toward final review from a supportive governor.
The Nevada Senate approved an amendment Friday after both the Senate and Assembly backed a bill by at least two-thirds. It will raise hotel taxes in the Las Vegas area by up to 1.4 percentage points to help fund the stadium and a convention center expansion.
Proponents say the plan to draw the Raiders from Oakland will bring 25,000 construction jobs and 14,000 permanent jobs to the Las Vegas area and help take the region's all-important tourism industry to the next level.
Opponents complained that the deal gave money to a project backed by billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who could afford to pay for the whole thing himself.
A plan to put $750 million in hotel tax dollars toward an NFL stadium in Las Vegas has passed its second major hurdle in the Nevada Legislature.
The Nevada Assembly voted 28-13 on Friday to approve a bill that raises hotel taxes in the Las Vegas area by up to 1.4 percentage points. The bill still needs final approval from the state Senate over minor changes.
