L.A. Olympic Bid

Hosted by

The LA City Council is deciding whether Mayor Garcetti should be authorized to sign an agreement with the US Olympic Committee. In preparation for the council meeting, a 200-page “bid book” was made public. It includes budget details—the projected cost is $5.8 billion—and plans for venues and the Olympic Village. City analysts also released their own report, which raises questions about the bid.
