convention center expansion to the governor's office. the first is whether the city of las vegas should have a representative on the stadium authority. that is something mayor carolyn goodman asked for at the last the proposed 39 percent limit on the public contribution to the project. stadium developers are opposed to that clause... saying they need the $750 million from the room tax even if the cost of the 65,000 seat stadium drops below the current estimate of $1.9 billion dollars. the third is a proposal that would exempt the stadium fro after the stadium is approved. if the committee can make it through all those issues tomorrow... it could forward the plan to the governor. then... it would be up to the governor to call a special session to vote on the proposed deal. bryan callahan, 13 action news. when all is said and done... the stadium would hold..... about -65- thousand people. it's projected to bring.... a lot of jobs here. about -8- thousand full time jobs.... to be exact. and... we could see hundreds of millions of dollars.... in economic impact.

language in here that would allow the developers to be reimbursed if the legislature were to expand an existing tax to cover pro football stadiums. that tax, the live entertainment tax, is charged at concerts. but lawmakers like to grant exemptions and add categories. ---so if they add this stadium, guess what happens? patrons will pay more for a ticket, but that extra money will not go where it usually goes -- to the state to fina it would go back to the stadium developers. the argument they make: that money tacked onto tickets might be spent on beer or hot dogs. the other side: why take that money away
