Vegas Stadium Committee Gets More Time

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Gov. Brian Sandoval is giving a committee more time to hammer out the details of a proposed NFL-grade stadium in Las Vegas.

Sandoval formally extended a deadline for the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee on Wednesday. The group was supposed to turn in a final recommendation at the end of the month, but now has until Sept. 30.

Supporters of the stadium presented nine potential sites to the committee on Monday and projected it would cost $1.7 billion to $2.1 billion, which was more than the original $1.4 billion estimate. The committee wants the backers to narrow the list and fine-tune the cost, which could be partially footed by hotel tax revenue.

Sandoval also expanded the committee’s scope and is allowing them to consider methods for funding more police officers.
