The Politics of Tourism in Austin

The City of Austin's Hotel Occupancy Tax generates over $50 million a year in revenue that goes to support the city's tourism industry. But how are these funds being allocated and how might it change in the future? Catlin Whitington of the Austin Tourism Commission joins us for a conversation about about the Hotel Occupancy Tax and the politics behind Austin's tourism industry.
