Members of California’s congressional delegation are asking House colleagues to support Los Angeles’ bid to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Democratic Reps. Lucille Roybal-Allard, Janice Hahn, Alan Lowenthal and Adam Schiff announced Wednesday they will file a resolution stating that Congress supports holding the Games in California.
“Los Angeles' bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games is a bid for the entire nation, and this resolution reflects that,” Roybal-Allard said in a statement. “Our country knows from experience that hosting the world’s greatest sports event can have profound and positive sporting, social, and economic impact. I urge my congressional colleagues to follow the sun to L.A., and help us bring the Olympic Games back to the City of Angels.”
