Sports Arenas in Las Vegas
Sports Arenas in Las Vegas

AIR DATE: December 10, 2010

There's new chatter about a sport stadium in Las Vegas. This is coming from a group of private investors, Ed Roski who helped build L.A.'s Staples Center and Craig Cavileer, president of the Silverton Casino. They want to work with UNLV to build a 40-thousand seat dome stadium for the UNLV Rebels football team. And they want to build it near or on the campus. Is this a good idea when two other groups are trying to build an arena to possibly attract a professional sports team?

seems the state can do with out an autism program and cuts to the mental health budget but of course we can't do with out a new stadium for a team we don't even have yet . I really question the sense in this
