The Nevada senate passed a $380 million bill that would help fund a Las Vegas ballpark for the A’s should they move from Oakland.
The bill now moves to the state’s assembly, but that body is expected to add amendments of its own before voting on the bill, according to the Nevada Independent.
Should the assembly pass an amended version, the bill would have to be approved once more by the Senate before heading to the governor’s desk for a signature or veto.
On Tuesday, two amendments added to the bill by the senate prompted a 13-8 vote in favor of the project.
One amendment provided more definition to the project, including codifying the Tropicana site as its location, and the other added in unrelated bill language that Gov. Joe Lombardo had previously vetoed.
The vote is just the latest development in a complicated saga as the MLB team continues searching for a long-term home.
