The Anchorage Assembly in Alaska has approved an agreement that would serve as framework for a bond-financed convention center, according to published reports as of January 2005. The plan calls for 100 million dollar in sales tax-supported revenue bonds to finance the project. The city's voters must first approve increasing the hotel tax to 12 percent from 8 percent in an April election. A recent poll of registered voters, commissioned by convention center supporters, found 50 percent in favor and 41 percent opposed, according to the Anchorage Daily News.
