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.
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.
Clark County commissioners are expected to vote next week whether to allow the project to continue. While approval is all but certain, county staff has requested several stipulations be incorporated with the OK.
A long-awaited vote on a bill that would increase hotel room taxes to fund a domed stadium and improvements to the Las Vegas Convention Center failed to materialize early Friday morning after a 17-hour Assembly session.
