Convention Center Tax, Vacation Rentals, Climate Plan Up Ahead For San Diego Politics In 2018

GUEST:

Andrew Bowen, KPBS metro reporter

Transcript

It has been a busy year for San Diego government, but 2018 is already shaping up to be just as packed.

Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s proposed tax increase to help pay for a Convention Center expansion and homeless funding got pushed to 2018. City Council could not reach a decision on vacation rentals, making next year the city’s next chance for a deal. The City Council will also weigh in on how the city should meet its Climate Action Plan goals. And there will be midterm elections in the fall.

KPBS metro reporter Andrew Bowen joins KPBS Midday Edition on Thursday with a look ahead to 2018.
