Nevada passed a stadium bill today that opened the door for the Raiders to move to Vegas


The Nevada Legislature voted Friday 28-13 to pass a bill that will devote taxpayer money to construct a stadium in Las Vegas for the Raiders, reports SB Nation

The bill still has to be signed by Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and the league must approve the Raiders' move. 

The stadium will cost $750 million. 

The Raiders released this statement from Raiders owner Mark Davis on their website:

"I would like to thank Governor Sandoval, the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee, and the members of the Nevada Legislature on this historic day. All parties have worked extremely hard to develop and approve this tremendous stadium project that will serve as a proud new home for the entire Raider Nation."

Some on Twitter are expecting the news of a move to sour the Raiders success so far. 

Others think if there's a tradeoff between Oakland teams, it will have been worth it.
