The Harris County Sports & Convention Corp. on Wednesday, June 19, 2013, recommended converting Houston's historic but deteriorating Astrodome into a giant convention center and exhibition space. The board's proposal would cost an estimated $194 million and take about 2 and a half years to complete. The plan now goes to Harris County commissioners, who will discuss it at a June 25 meeting.
