Kansas City is closer than ever to building a new 800-room, $331 million convention hotel downtown, near Bartle Hall. On Wednesday, one of the attorneys for the project, Mike Burke, joined Colleen McCain Nelson and Dave Helling of The Star’s editorial board to discuss the final steps — and what taxpayers will and won’t pay for the project.
Burke also talked about the airport debate and the proposed University of Missouri-Kansas City arts campus downtown. On Wednesday, Gov. Eric Greitens vetoed a bill paying for half of the cost of that initiative.
