Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis tells fellow NFL executives that he is 100% committed to moving the team to Las Vegas, according to ESPN's Jim Trotter.

Nevada has plans to build a $1.9 billion stadium with a dome that would hold approximately 65,000 seats. The Nevada Legislature approved a bill raising the taxes on hotel rooms to help fund the construction of the stadium. Governor Brian Sandoval signed a the bill.

In order for the Raiders to relocate, 75% of NFL owners would have to approve of the move. Fellow NFL owner Jerry Jones has previously voiced his support for the new deal. Owners are scheduled to meet in January.
