LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Gov. Brian Sandoval issued a proclamation Sunday to mark the start of the special session for the proposed NFL stadium and other issues.  

The Nevada State Legislature will convene in Northern Nevada Monday at 8 a.m.

Sandoval asked the legislature to consider imposing a tax to finance the expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center, financing a NFL stadium and authorizing the Clark County Board of Commissioners to increase sales and use tax for law enforcement.

“"Before us is a rare opportunity to seize the moment and raise Las Vegas, already the best in the world, to the next level of entertainment and hospitality,” Sandoval said.

The full proclamation can be viewed here.
