With Boston out of the running to host the 2024 Summer Olympics, Los Angeles looks poised to step in as the U.S.' next best choice for an Olympic host city.
Los Angeles Times reports LA officials and the U.S. Olympic Committee have come an agreement about the city being the U.S.' bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics. The city council will vote on it Tuesday.
The report says the bid estimates $4.1 billion in expenses, with Mayor Eric Garcetti ready to sign taxpayers up for a $400-million contingency fund. If taxpayers footing the bill for the Olympics sounds familiar, it should.
