Portland To Host 2024 Olympics?

PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon may get another boost to its economy.

Portland is one of 35 cities asked by the U.S. Olympic Committee if they are interested in bidding for the Summer Olympics in 2024, but the committee does warn there are about $3 billion in costs even before venue construction.

The city would also need to have 45,000 hotel rooms available. The International Olympic Committee will decide in 2017 which city will host the 2024 games.
