With the City Council’s decision this week to abandon the hotel-room tax funding plan, the Convention Center expansion blew up in boosters’ faces.

Now the idea of a combined Convention Center and Chargers stadium has gained some renewed momentum.

Erik Bruvold, president of the National University System Institute for Policy Research, told us on this week’s podcast that the funding model for the project should be put to voters. Bruvold put it simply: “You pay for what you want.”

Also covered in this week’s podcast are the ongoing battle over the minimum wage hike and the future of Comic-Con in San Diego.
