|Hoteliers want to keep a 2 percent charge on San Diego hotel visitors’ bills around for the next 40 years.|
|Why It Matters|
|The charge allows hoteliers to promote San Diego, but also likely keeps the city from raising taxes on visitors to pay for general city services. That’s compounded by a proposed Convention Center expansion that would be financed with another boost.|
|City Council will vote Monday to take the first step in renewing the charge, but more votes will follow.
