perfect as people are getting registered to vote. >> michelle: it's a fit friday. trainers from trufusion are here. they're going put us to work and show us what's in store for their new blue diamond location. i'll tell you this much. i see big kettle bells. >> announcer: news 3 starts right now. >> michelle: good afternoon. thank you for joining us everybody. after a marathon session, and boy was it ever, the e light for an nfl stadium. but this isn't over yet. because now the bill has to go back to the senate. >> krystal: that's right. with those amendments that the assembly made. our jeff gillan has been doing a terrific job following all this, keeping us posted on social media. thank you jeff from carson city. what do we know now? >> reporter: here's what we know now. here is the headline. it passed the state assembly this morning 28-13.
that tax hike which is boosting the room tax to a raise 750 million for the stadium and 420 million for the expanded convention center. let's roll some video if we can. this was a back and forth battle here. supporters saying that this vote is absolutely crucial for the economic benefit of southern nevada. opponents saying, wait a minute. this was a rush nevada has far more important things to spend its public tax dollars on. but at the end of the day the supporters of the stadium won. you mentioned that it isn't over yet. what's happening right now is the state senate is about to go back into session. what they're going to do. they're going to look at the amendments that the assembly tacked on and from what i am hearing pretty much mot going to have a problem in the state senate. so as we stand here right now at
this will actually pass the day. and this thing is a done deal. however, we're up here at the capitol. it's not over until it's over. so put a big asterisk on that. here is why timing is so important today. the nfl has a meeting on october 18th. and lawmakers up here wanted to get this thing out the door so that the nfl could say, look, here is what nevada has done. they have approved this tax hike. to get the mechanics going to potentially allow the las vegas raiders, the oakland raiders to potentially move to las vegas. that stadium real quickly and i apologize if i am all over the place. i didn't get out of here until three this morning. that stadium is backed by billionaire sheldon adelson. also the oakland raiders who say they would like to make las vegas and that stadium their new home.
this allows the raiders to have in their back pocket some ammo going, look, nevada has stepped up to the plate. now we'd like to get the mechanism going here. we'd like to get the momentum going to allow that move to happen. to bring us from oakland here to las vegas. but i have to tell you folks, i mean, this was a momentous vote. this is the kind of vote that will follow people throughout the rest of their careers. it may propel careers. ita so that's why this was of such great importance today here at the capitol. we're going to walk down to the state assembly right now. we're going check in and see what they've got going on. again, we don't expect too much of a problem. but that's it. we're going run around and get more reaction. bruise feelings -- bruised feelings by some who felt this is the wrong way to go.
there was a really heavy lobbying pushed by organized labor to make this happen. because in some trades unemployment's 80 percent. so democrats really felt, really a pull here between labor and also their progressive friends who said wait a minute we've got schools. we've got buildings that we need. what are you doing raising $750 million for a stadium? much more coming up on later editions. i'm going to send it back to you. jeff gillan in carson city. >> krystal: remember you c media when he is not on air. stay with news 3 for continued coverage of this week's special session. jeff will be there until everything wraps up. you heard him say he was up till three in the morning. >> michelle: not a lot of sleep. okay. i love these stories. i've actually covered a few of these and they always get me -- you just feel nostalgic. today is a special day for hundreds of men and women who became american citizens here in our valley. >> krystal: we have a big congratulations out to them
couldn't be better. because now they'll be able to register and cast their vote for the first time. news 3's sergio avila is live from the federal courthouse. sergio, you actually met a man who said he has been waiting for this his whole life. >> reporter: his name is rudy zamora. his family brought him from mexico when he was just about one-and-a-half years old. and he's been waiting for this moment, like you said, his entire life. rudy was among dozens of people today in a crt that oath of citizenship. with that oath of course comes the right to cast a ballot. for zamora the timing couldn't be better. he was getting ready and wanted to register before that deadline to vote which is october 18th. next tuesday. he wants to cast his ballot for this presidential election that's coming up in november. of course all the new citizens were offered the same opportunity to register to vote immediately following the ceremony.
of that. and he tried to put into words what it means to him to not only be an american citizen but also to be finally able to cast a ballot. >> words for that? it's definitely something that sitting on the bench and taking the oath was definitely something that, that moved me. i'm not an emotional person. bit was definitely in tears. >> repr: this ceremony just one of many that's taking place today. all in all here at the federal courthouse about 200 people will be welcomed as american citizens. reporting live, sergio avila, news 3. back to you in the studio. >> krystal: wonderful day for them. congratulations. >> michelle: a new art installation made by a renowned artist has been unveiled today. >> krystal: and that's where we find our kyndell nunley joining us live from the park by the monte carlo with a look.
my dear. >> kyndell: good morning. typically when you think of legos you might think of kids. one west coast artist is showing that is quite the different case. this artist has millions of them on hand to make sculptures just like this one. of course we're at the park in between the monte carlo and new york, new york. and this installation is brought to you by the l.a. based artist. his name is nathan. it will be on display until mb fi are set on nine benches. giving the fact they are made out of legos i had to ask, what's the process like making life size human sculptors out of tiny little bricks? each takes up to two to three weeks. i use 20,000 bricks for each sculptor. i am gluing all the bricks
>> kyndell: since i've been out here all morn and into the afternoon. something funny that is people will come up thinking this will move or there's a person inside of them. we know there are installations around the las vegas strip where people jump out. that is not the case. this is a sculptor that won't jump out at you. come down and have fun. reporting live at the park in las vegas, kyndell nunley. k >> krystal: we're having a little fun in studio. because we are getting in shape with the fit friday. trufusion back in the building. hey guys. fitness director leah traffic and also seth from trufusion. can i say i love your shirt. >> mucho squats. >> i guess we're doing a couple of those today. >> i figure we'd introduce to you the dead lift first.

writer would open the flood gates. so 2034 nobel for literature could go to, never know, posting repetitive rihanna lyrics ? work work work work ? the british paper the telegraph imagined a nobel prize being awarded to donald trump for lyrical tweeting. in defense of dylan, a writer for rolling stone tweeted... they'll stone you when you've won the nobel prize. but the is the nobel prize for literature not sweden's got talent. >> do you think of yourself as a singer or poet. >> i think of myself as a song and dance man. >> reporter: the prize in literature goes to a man better known for words delivered on the stage than on the page. jeanne moos, cnn, new york. >> krystal: we would love for

as a marine combat veteran, i understand the sacrifices our military makes. re earned, and we rely on them. politicians like joe heck should understand that. narrator: joe heck voted to shut down the federal government, risking critical services for nevada veterans. and during that shutdown, heck continued cashing his congressional paycheck. his military record deserves respect. but back in dc, joe heck is putting politics before nevada. and that doesn't work for me. narrator: vote vets is responsible for the content of this advertising. two billionaires,

is by going online and connecting with strangers to buy guns. as someone in law enforcememen, i think that's dangerous. millions of guns are sold through websites like this,
why don't we require them online? a few clicks of the mouse, now a bad guy is armed - and potentially dangerous. and that's a threat to
all of us. narrator vo: yes on question 1 he's divisive and dangerous. "uh, i don't know what i said. uh... i don't remember." but congressman hardy supports trump 100% and said he'll do whatever trump wants him to do. and that seniors who rely on programs like social security are a draw on government. donald trump and congressman hardy -- divisive and dangerous.
