Committee Working on Funding for $1.4B Las Vegas Stadium

When the 11-member Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee begins work Thursday on how to pay for a $1.4 billion, 65,000-seat domed stadium, it will try to piece together a funding strategy that will keep everyone happy with their return on investment.

Don’t count on that being an easy task.

And don’t count on the stadium being a done deal.

Some critics of the stadium proposal already have made their position perfectly clear — don’t contribute a single dime of taxpayer money toward a project that’s bound to generate profits for developer Las Vegas Sands Corp. and the Oakland — or is it Las Vegas? — Raiders.
