LA takes another step toward 2028 Games

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) -

Los Angeles has taken another step toward the 2028 Olympics, despite questions about future costs.
    
The City Council voted 12-0 today to endorse documents at the heart of LA's plan to stage the 2028 Summer Games. The contract outlines the financial responsibility of putting on the games, although a budget has not been completed.
    
Council President Herb Wesson said the opportunity is too great to pass up.
    
The favorable vote was expected and came less than two weeks after the city announced an agreement with international Olympic leaders that will open the way for Los Angeles to host the 2028 Games, while ceding the 2024 Games to rival Paris.
    
The 11-year wait time comes with millions of dollars in financial sweeteners, but also uncertainty about future costs.
    
The deal must also be endorsed by the U.S. Olympic Committee board of directors, and the International Olympic Committee.
