LAS VEGAS -- Nevadas governor signed a bill Monday clearing the way for a Las Vegas stadium that could be home to the Raiders, although NFL owners still need to approve the teams move from Oakland before Sin City becomes a football town.Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval and Raiders owner Mark Davis joined hardhat-wearing construction workers and mask-wearing Raiders fans for the ceremony at UNLV, whose football team would also use the 65,000-seat domed stadium. Cheerleaders shook pompoms and a marching band launched into Viva Las Vegas after Sandoval inked the deal.Las Vegas is ready for this. Nevada is ready for this, Sandoval said in an interview afterward. The best brand on the planet is coming together with one of the best brands in professional sports. It is truly one of those situations where 1+1(equals)3.Nevada lawmakers narrowly approved a deal in a special session last week that increases hotel taxes in the Las Vegas area to raise $750 million for a stadium and more than $400 million to expand and upgrade the Las Vegas Convention Center. In raw dollars, its the largest public contribution ever toward an NFL stadium, although the publics share of the total costs -- 39 percent -- is on par with stadiums in other similarly sized cities.Billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is putting $650 million toward the project, while the Raiders and the NFL will kick in $500 million. Critics called the deal a total scam, saying it prioritizes the legacy project of one of the worlds richest men over Nevadas school and mental health needs.Any relocation needs approval from three-fourths of NFL tteam owners -- a historically conservative bunch that has shied away from Las Vegas because of its legal sports betting.dddddddddddd Davis said hes not going to guess whether enough owners will jump on board.Davis denied speculation that supporting the Las Vegas plan was a way to force Oakland, which is also trying to keep the team, to build it a stadium. He emphasized that he prefers to move his team to Las Vegas over Southern California, which is also an option.I made a commitment to the governor of Nevada, he said after the ceremony. Ive never used another city as leverage.Beyond the Raiders, a stadium close to the Las Vegas Strip would be a boon for UNLV, which now plays at a field seven miles from campus. UNLV has been trying to break out from its reputation as a commuter school and elevate its academic and sports programs.Were entering into a renaissance here for the university, and you could definitely feel that here today, UNLV President Len Jessup said.The deal faced headwinds in the Nevada Legislature, but it cleared that hurdle with persuasion from workers in the Laborers Union, who are eager for some of the 25,000 construction jobs expected to come from the stadium and convention center. The construction industry tanked during the recession, and it hasnt fully rebounded.It means the world for our families, said union organizer Kenneth McLin, who wore a hardhat and fluorescent shirt to the ceremony. The stadium is going to be the hero for everybody. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
