The LA City Council held off yesterday in approving LA's bid for the 2024 Olympic games.
The City, and US Olympic Committee, are trying to hit an IOC deadline of September 15th. That fast timeline has some council members worried about having time to study the financial guarantees the IOC is demanding.
KPCC reported yesterday about a confusing item in the Olympics bid book from LA officials that claims Gov. Brown expressed support for a state "financial guarantee" for the Games. But now it's not clear Brown made the statement.
Should the City be the backstop if the host committee runs a loss?
