SNTIC unanimously recommends Raiders Las Vegas stadium funding

New, comments

As expected, the SNTIC panel will recommend funding the the proposed Las Vegas stadium that would be home to the Raiders. Right off the top, I'll point out that this doesn't mean the Raiders are moving. It's the next step that had to happen along the way.

Without going into all the boring details of the proposal, the plan that passed asked for $750 million in public funding to be paid by a .1% increase in hotel taxes.Up to $650 million would come from private contribution, including that of Las Vegas Sands which is headed by Sheldon Adelson.

The next step is for the plan to be seen by Nevada governor Brian Sandoval who is being asked to call for a special session.
