LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The committee that handles relocation of teams within the NFL is expected to recommend the Raiders' move to Las Vegas ahead of a full vote of league owners. 

NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport tweeted Tuesday:

On Monday, the Raiders reportedly informed the league that they tapped Bank of America as the lender to $650 million of the projected $1.9 billion needed to build a Las Vegas NFL stadium. A tax attached to hotel stays will account for $750 million of the stadium's costs.

The recommendation does not necessarily signify finality in the Raiders' move to Las Vegas. The team still requires 24 of 32 owners to approve the move.
