Giunchigliani Blasts Stadium Proposal

Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani is lambasting the process lawmakers are using to vet a plan that would publicly fund an NFL stadium in Las Vegas.

Giunchigliani said Tuesday she's troubled that the stadium deal and a plan to expand and renovate the Las Vegas convention center are bundled together. People who support the convention center for the jobs it will bring but oppose putting money to the stadium must vote against the whole thing.

She said the deal is rushed, urging lawmakers to have the courage to vote no, then bring up the convention center plan for a vote in the regular session begins in February.

Giunchigliani has been a vocal critic of the plan and says a stadium isn't an emergency worthy of calling a special session.
