No set numbers, but with hotel taxes being THE major portion of what "taxpayers" are paying.

Estimated cost in 2013 was $1 billion dollars. In 2016, it was estimated to be $1.7 billion. Expected finish date keeps falling back while the estimated cost keeps going up. When the 19% TOT in 2013 doesn't meet the expanding cost, who gets the bill...?
