Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has signed legislation that enables the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) to seek funding for a potential 8.7-mile light-rail line in Las Vegas, local media reported late last week. The line would connect McCarran International Airport to the city's downtown, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.RTC has until 2020's end to ask Clark County residents to raise sales taxes to pay for the light-rail line, which is expected to cost up to $705 million.Although the agency doesn't have immediate plans to introduce a sales tax measure on local ballots, RTC will apply for federal grants and look for other sources to pay for the line, the Review-Journal reported.
