Break’s Over: Lawmakers Resume Work on Vegas Stadium Bill

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Lawmakers are resuming their work on a plan to raise hotel taxes to fund a Las Vegas stadium and convention center expansion.

The Nevada Legislature took a one-day break from its special session in observance of the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur and is set to restart its business on Thursday.

The Assembly needs to vote on a bill that allowing the Clark County Commission to raise sales tax by one-tenth of one percent to hire more police officers. Then they need to vet a bill to raise nearly $1.2 billion to fund the NFL stadium and convention center.

The Senate already voted 16-5 in favor of supporting the projects, while the Assembly hasn’t taken any votes.

It’s not clear when lawmakers will finish, although special sessions typically last several days.
