Gov. Brian Sandoval sealed the deal Saturday to bring a $1 billion electric car manufacturing plant to North Las Vegas after Nevada lawmakers gave final approval.
A package of bills that will bring electric car maker Faraday Future to Apex in Southern Nevada crawled toward approval Friday in the Nevada Legislature, but the special session to get the $1 billion auto plant deal finalized will continue at least one more day.
Nevada lawmakers convened in special session late Wednesday and took care of procedural business before recessing for the night, all in preparation to consider tax breaks for electric car start-up Faraday Future.

Nevada gaming regulators banned unlicensed daily fantasy sports websites from providing their product to Silver State customers, saying the activity constitutes sports wagering.
