One of the routine things the Regents do when they meet is approval of the minutes.  As they reconsider the UCLA hotel/conference center proposal, they will have the benefits of minutes from their March 28th meeting at which they refused to endorse the project.

Of course, they could instead just listen to their meeting on this blog where the audio is preserved.  But seeing it in print is also instructive.  All of the doubts are there from the tax issues to the why-don't-you-just-buy-a-hotel questions.  Since the new proposal is much the same as the old (see our earlier blog post), if the Regents do endorse the hotel this time, it will be interesting to see the contrast with what they said in March.

We'll see what magic UCLA may have performed on the Regents to overcome past doubts soon enough:
