It will probably be 2028 for LA and 2024 for Paris. From what I've read, LA has signaled that they'll wait for 2028 if the IOC gives them money to keep their LA Olympics committee funded between now and 2028.

With new venues being few and far between in LA, you know it's the last place the IOC wants to be

The IOC does want to be in LA. They can't stiff the USOC every time they apply to host, because so much of the IOC's sponsorship revenue comes from US corporations. And right now LA is the only US locale that has both enough resources and little-enough local opposition to host.

And interest...it wouldn't take much money for the games to be hosted in Houston or Dallas.

Summer Olympics in Houston? Maybe if they hold them in November. It would be crazy to hold 'em in July or August in Houston.

The IOC knew it needed to come back to the US for the very reason you stated. But they hoped that CHI, BOS or NYC would be the host city. I don't think the IOC or the USOC expected such high resistivity from other American cities.

Yeah, they had to take special measures to deal with Atlanta heat in 96, and both Dallas and Houston would be worse.

I think this is going to be a problem going forward. Give the olympics to cities/countries that are wholly unprepared but willing to going deeply into debt to host, or give them to the small handful of locations who remain willing to host simply because they DON'T have to invest too much? The market is shrinking as potential hosts become unwilling to participate in these graft-soaked, money pit events.
