The deal is predicated on Raiders owner Mark Davis paying for $500 million of the total $1.9 billion cost to build the stadium. It calls for a hotel tax to fund $750 million, leaving $650 million (plus any overrun costs) for billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.
The domed stadium is projected to seat 65,000 fans and is expected to become the new home of the Raiders as soon as 2019. The only thing that can stop the move now is the NFL's owners voting against it at the league meetings this fall.
