The Clark County Commission on Wednesday postponed action on a request from the Raiders for waivers to development standards on signs at Allegiant Stadium.
The committee making recommendations to Gov. Brian Sandoval and the Nevada Legislature on attracting events to the new Las Vegas stadium is leaning toward expanding the role of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and Las Vegas Events, rather than forming of a new sports commission.
It only took an hour and a half Wednesday for Clark County to sell the bonds necessary to help finance the planned $1.8 billion Las Vegas stadium to 43 institutional investors.
Board members cruised through a lengthy agenda, but had little to show for it in the end, except that everything still appears to be on track for completion of a final stadium development agreement in February.
Rep. Dina Titus has sent a letter to congressional leaders urging a conference committee to add language that would exempt two major Las Vegas projects from a bill that would ban the use of tax-exempt bonds for stadiums used by professional sports teams.
The Las Vegas Stadium Authority will get its first look at the details of the financing of the 65,000-seat domed football stadium when it meets Thursday, a day after Clark County officials conduct a high-impact project hearing on the development.
