  1. I know next to nothing about construction so asking anyone does an investigation into an incident like this shut down the entire site? If so are the workers just SOL until it picks back up or collect unemployment? It looks just like the parking structure was damaged so @MyTwoSense no units involved.
  2. Glad to read that no one was injured and can I just say I love Urban Ohio.
  3. Didn't we have a couple members here that worked for RTA? There truly is some useful info that comes across these pages.
  4. ^^ That was fun, made me giggle like a little kid.
  5. Are you saying the plan included shutting down Burke? It was asked of @Clefan98 and I'll ask it of you about your source: Do they work at SHW, work in real estate, work in government?
  6. They were unconfirmed sources and according to the stadium authority untrue but I believe we have ventured off topic. Here's an article on it: https://www.forbes.com/sites/thomasbaker/2018/08/23/las-vegas-raiders-stadium-jail-court/#52dee4f7597b From the article: Reached for comment, the Las Vegas Stadium Authority said in a statement: “There will NOT be a jail or a courthouse at the Las Vegas Raiders Stadium." Who knows, after all we have Area 51.
  7. I suspect the RFQ came from property owners that were approached by or reached out to SHW. I'm thinking Jacobs and or Weston but I'm sure @KJP will sort that out for us soon enough.
  8. I'm afraid you have some bad information. The rumor was a small holding facility for unruly fans but this was only a rumor and is not being built. The stadium has only been under construction for a little over two years and will be ready for the 2020 season.
  9. 1.8 billion was the projected cost. 65,000 seats including lots of luxury boxes/seats and a dome; because tomorrows forecast high is 102.
  10. Thank you @Gramarye for that detailed response but I hope you'll concede that @jonoh81 response has merit. I'm not sure you would be tolerant of Obama trying such, what I'll call, an overreach. My understanding is these funds would be diverted from some 120 various construction projects throughout the military. Could the contractors affected by project cancellations be considered a "plaintiff with standing"? I would like to here from other attorneys/constitutional scholars on this as well.
  11. Fair point. So my question becomes can Congress fight this in the courts starting with an injunction? What can they do to stop this?
  12. Is this even remotely legal? I'm not an attorney but... In the federal government of the United States, the power of the purse is vested in the Congress as laid down in the Constitution of the United States, Article I, Section 9, Clause 7 (the Appropriations Clause) and Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 (the Taxing and Spending Clause).
  13. Not to pile on with the off topic stuff but I believe this is also true of Seattle, Baltimore and Nashville. That list looks suspect @Cleburger
  14. Thanks @rockandroller , that was a great read and I would encourage others here to take the time to read it as well.
