((denise valdez)) >> i'm denise valdez. for the first time since an oversight committee approved the n-f-l stadium funding plan.... we're hearing first-hand from the governor. ((paul joncich)) >> the governor weighed in this morning... giving us a better picture of what will be happening leading up to the special session. politics now anchor patrick walker spoke to sandoval at length about the stadium. ((patrick walker)) >> turns out... the governor had quite a bit to say today. much of it... had to do with when the special session will actually happen. sources have told us the governor's office is prepping lawmakers for a monday.. the governor's office issued a statement... saying it would start sometime "between october 7th and october 13th." today... governor sandoval told me there are a number of cinsiderations as to when exactly the date will be... but it would "likely be that week" -- meaning of the 10th. the governor has also been in meetings with stakeholders from the raiders... and the developer... the sands corp. all of that may not matter... however... if the deal dies in the legislature. the biggest question for sandoval today -- does he have the votes to pass it? ((governor brian

fluid thing, and i'm speaking with legislative leadership, i have not polled or lobbied individual legislators on this, my impression on this is there is a significant amount of support out there for this project.")) ((patrick walker)) >> keep in mind... funding for a convention center expansion is also an item on the table at the upcoming special session. and there's an outside shot an alternative funding source for the education savings account could also make the agenda. the governor re-opened the door to that.. made up his mind whther or not it would be included. that reverses course somewhat from a statement yesterday... when he said he alluded to the issue being taken up in the 2017 regular session. ((patrick walker)) >> sandoval says the session is on schedule... after the clark county commission appointed two temporary legislators today... to fill the vacant seats in the legislature. former democratic assemblywoman stephanie smith and republican kyle stephens join three lawmakers who were

special session./// ((paul joncich)) >> it's not over. the day after nevada's supreme court put the brakes on the education savings account-- the state's treasurer is still moving forward. esa's allow parents to get reimbursed by the state for their child's education at private schools. speed and looks ahead to what's next. ((sharie johnson)) yesterday the supreme court put an injunction on esa's. they did find the program to be constitutional-- but not the current funding plan. mind you-- over 4,000 families-- totalling over 8,000 students have already enrolled. but the state treasurer says he's moving foward. yesterday he said lawmakers could still find a way to make the voucher program work... with a few changes. and he wants those ammendments to be made in a
5:04 pm
but today-- the governor didn't seem so sure about that: (( gov. sandoval: "well, you know, and again i'm not going to speculate on camera, this is a really serious issue and it's important and unfortunately the treasurer hasn't had an opportunity to, i mean he said this the moment the decision came out, and i think if he were familiar with some of the other details, it might be different." )) >> sandoval said he hasn't decided whether to include esa's as part of the special session, because it's quote "very complicated and complex" >> that means all these families will have to play the waiting with their child's education. will this topic become conversation next month-- and are lawmakers convinced it can work. we'll find out. denise? ((denise valdez)) investigators are having trouble finding answers to how a new jersey train crashed thursday morning killing one person and injuring more than 100 others. the ntsb hasn't been able to remove the front facing cameras
5:05 pm
recordings could be damaged. while crews work to figure out how fast the train was going... others are wondering if a new system called "positive train control" would have prevented it. the technology stops trains when they exceed speed limits -- but it won't be implemented in hoboken for another 2 years./// ((denise valdez)) that technology relies on gps satellites.. radio towers.. and ground sensors to monitor a train's speed and its location. if it detects a train going t unsafely... onboard computers kick in to slow or stop it. the technology is only available on 29% of passenger trains though. the american public transportation association says they are 100 percent committed to "positive train control"... but the final cost of installing it is about 3 and a half billion dollars. that's far more than congress has set aside for it./// ((paul joncich))

((sam kaufman/ceo, henderson hospital: there's been a tremendous amount of effort. almost 1500 people have gone in to build this hospital." )) ((mauricio marin)) the hospital's chief executive officer sam kaufman gave us an inside look at the work they've been busy with to get the hospital built from the ground up in a part of town where the population keeps growing.

((michelle mortensen)) finding a great deal online brings many of us a lot of joy. but a word of warning. not every deal ... is a deal. sometimes it can be a simple mistake...
5:15 pm
she told me she bought 6 v-i-p tickets to see deepak chopra at the smith center next month. the deal online was almost too good to be true. each ticket was just 8 bucks ... and that included a meet and greet and a signed copy of his book. after purchasing them though she got an email saying the price was an error .. and she owed them $1,026. she asked me for help ... saying .. shouldn't all sales be final. well, not really. see a pricing error .. which this obvoisly was since these ... can be a nightmare for businesses or ticket agents in this case. the question is are businessesle gally obligated to sell them at the advertised price .... and the answer is no. why? a couple reasons. first .. .mistakes happen. and there's no law requiring
5:16 pm
laws against false or decptive advertising require intent to decieve ... not a mistake. second ... it doesn't qualify as a bait and switch according to the f-t-c ... there has to be intention ... and mistakes are unintentional. third... if the company's website has a terms of service section stating they can cancel order for any reason ... they can. now the good news in yvonne's case ... honor yvonne's tickets in part. she got to keep her amazing seats... she just had to forgoe the v-i-p package with the meet and greet and book signing. all in all ... there mistake ended up being a big win for her. just remember ... anytime you find a great deal ... you can loose it ... if the company claims it was just a mistake. and it often is. i'm michelle mortensen.
