NV Panel Discussing Proposal For New Las Vegas Stadium
A panel created by Gov. Brian Sandoval is discussing a plan to build a professional-grade stadium at UNLV that could someday be home to the Raiders.
The Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee is meeting Thursday to review a proposal from the Las Vegas Sands.
The casino company led by billionaire Sheldon Adelson is calling for a public-private partnership to build a $1.3 billion domed stadium that could be shared by a professional team and UNLV.
Raiders owner Mark Davis has shown interest in moving to Las Vegas or other cities if he's unable to get a new stadium built in Oakland.
Critics are concerned that the project would divert hotel room tax dollars away from an ongoing effort to expand the Las Vegas Convention Center.
