The effort to build a $1.9 billion domed stadium and lure the NFL to Las Vegas has marched down the field and is nearing the end zone.
The proposal, unveiled in early 2016 by casino owner Sheldon Adelson, aims to bring the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas and provide a new home to the UNLV football team.
Nevada lawmakers approved $750 million in room taxes to help fund the project, shortly before Adelson exited the effort following a falling out with the Raiders. The team then turned to Bank of America for financing.
NFL owners are expected to vote at the end of March on whether to allow the Raiders to move.
Nevada Public Radio has covered the issue through interviews with the principals, lawmakers, national experts, and commentaries by John L. Smith, a longtime observer of all things Las Vegas.
