TAX SEASON: UNLV officials yesterday said that “additional funding sources under discussion” for the school’s proposed 60,000-seat stadium “include a new fee on rental of each hotel room across the Las Vegas Valley.” In Las Vegas, Alan Snel reports UNLV and its private-industry partner "until now" had said that an on-campus tax district, which "would capture taxes on the sale of food, beverages and retail items at a proposed shopping area to be built as part of the UNLVNow stadium project, would pay much of the construction bill.” Both a campus taxing district and a new hotel room fee “would have to be approved by the state Legislature, which starts its biennial session next week” (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 1/29).
