The Oakland Raiders have made the next step in their push to move to Las Vegas.

The franchise has filed paperwork to relocate to make progress to the city, Clark County (Nev.) Commission Chair Steve Sisolak declared Thursday on Twitter.

The Raiders would require 24 of 32 owners to approve movement in a vote that could come in March.

Proprietor Mark Davis has been firm in his dedication to moving the establishment to Las Vegas. In October, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval marked a bill endorsed by the state Legislature for $750 million out in the open financing towards an about $2 billion stadium extend.

The Alameda County (Calif.) Board of Supervisors and Oakland City Council affirmed terms of an arrangement that proposed to keep the Raiders in Oakland. However, NFL official VP Eric Grubman told USA TODAY Sports in December that there was no agreement on the table for the group or league to consider.

“I think the intentions are good,” Grubman said at the association gatherings. “But I don’t think there’s been any progress that suggests a breakthrough anytime soon.”
