LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The public will have a chance Monday afternoon to weigh in on the Oakland Athletics’ proposed stadium funding bill. The bill is going before Nevada lawmakers at 4 p.m.

Senate Bill 509, which was introduced Friday night, would give the A’s $380 million in public funding. The majority of the money, $180 million, would come from the state, Clark County would contribute $145 million, and $25 million would come from a special tax district in and around the stadium.

The A’s want to build a $1.5 billion, 30,000-seat stadium on the current site of the Tropicana Las Vegas hotel. Currently, the A’s have the worst record and lowest attendance in Major League Baseball. They average 8,000 fans a game in the 56,000-seat Oakland Coliseum.

The bill will be heard during a joint meeting of the Senate Committee on Finance and the Assembly Committee on Ways and Means and will be livestreamed on the Nevada Legislature’s website.
