The legislation would provide a $75 million tax-rebate incentive, with $25 million each coming from the state, Salt Lake County and Salt Lake City to help fund the convention-center hotel as well as a mitigation fund to help existing hotels who lose business because of the new facility and another fund to promote tourism in other parts of the state.

"I think the economic impact on the entire state will be felt from this new facility both indirectly and directly," said floor sponsor Sen. Stuart Adams, R-Layton.
