A's Don't Have The Votes in Nevada Legislature to Get Their Las Vegas Stadium

3 hours 32 min ago

Oakland A's management has their hat in hand in the Nevada legislature asking for nearly $400 million in taxpayer money for their proposed Las Vegas stadium, and team executives are failing in their sales pitch even worse than the A's are failing on the baseball diamond. This season's Oakland A's may be heading toward the worst record in Major League Baseball history, but team management's hopes for a quickie Las Vegas marriage may be failing more spectacularly before the relationship is even consummated. Team president Dava Kaval has been unsuccessfully trying to persuade Nevada lawmakers to pony up $395 million in state taxpayer money for the franchise to move to Las Vegas, and one Wednesday exchange went viral, showing Nevada state Senator Fabian Doñate pretty much handing Kaval his rear end.

The A's Las Vegas stadium discussion in the Nevada legislature gets contentious

Thu, 2023-06-08 13:00

This is because the potential stadium for the Oakland A's relocation to Las Vegas is, in fact, a political issue. The Nevada legislature adjourned earlier this week without bringing up the bill for the subsidy the A's want for their stadium. In a special session Wednesday that one state senator said costs taxpayers $250,000 per day, Nevada legislators were largely skeptical and sometimes outright critical of a plan that calls for $380 million in public funding. “You've all called us in here for a special session, and are asking, minimally, for the state to give you all $36 million per year for the next five years for a taxpayer-funded stadium, at the same time that the governor has vetoed funding for summer school, a bill to support children's mental health, a bill requiring paid family leave — all because the governor said we couldn't afford them,” State Senator Rochelle Nguyen said early in a three-hour back and forth with two advocates of the bill.

Oakland A's leadership taken to task, other reactions during marathon Nevada Senate session

Thu, 2023-06-08 11:11

The Oakland Athletics' pursuit of a new ballpark in Las Vegas had its longest public vetting yet on Wednesday. The A's and their representatives were drilled on their ballpark bill in a marathon special session in the Nevada senate held two days after the regular legislative session ended. Oakland Athletics | Oakland A's fall in Pittsburgh, tie team record with 15th straight road loss And while Wednesday's session didn't ultimately lead to a vote, with the Nevada officials electing to pick things back up later Thursday morning instead of jamming in a vote after midnight, things sure got intense across the nearly nine hours from start to finish — and even a little wacky. Perhaps the most noteworthy moments both came from Democratic senator Fabian Doñate and A's president Dave Kaval.
