The Nevada Senate has passed the bill that would build a new stadium for the Raiders. The Nevada Assembly hasn’t, yet.
Via the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a 17-hour marathon session on Thursday resulted in no vote, one way or the other, regarding the proposal to contribute $750 million in taxpayer funds toward the structure.
A total of 28 votes are needed to pass the bill for consideration by the governor. It’s unclear whether the ayes will have it.
One potential roadblock came from a report suggesting that the stadium would require the acceleration of $900 million in road projects. If those, and other, concerns kill the bill, the project could be sent to the Clark County Commission for approval.
None of this matters if the Raiders can’t get internal approval to move. As PFT previously has reported, a fight is brewing among owners regarding whether it makes sense to move an NFL team into the nation’s gambling capital.
The Assembly was due to resume its work on Friday at 12:00 p.m. ET.
