The next step in a potential move of the Oakland Athletics to Las Vegas has taken place as a bill for funding of a new ballpark was introduced in Nevada’s legislature Friday night according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The bill includes a public contribution of up to $380 million for the proposed $1.5 billion ballpark project.

The A’s released renderings of the proposed ballpark with a partially retractable roof on Friday. If the bill passes, the next step in the process would be approval by MLB’s relocation committee.
