Lawmakers consider expansion for Boston Convention and Exhibition Center

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) -

State lawmakers are considering a proposed $1 billion expansion of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

Supporters said the facility that opened in 1997 isn't big enough to attract large-scale events.

They also said expanding the center and adding hotel rooms would generate new jobs.

A hearing to discuss financing for the project is set for Thursday.
