The fate of the Astrodome could be decided today. The Astrodome Redevelopment Corporation is presenting plans to the Harris County commissioner's court today. The group lost exclusive rights to redevelop the Dome just last month. However, if they get the green light today, they should be able to sign a lease quickly.

The group plans to convert the ballpark into a convention center and hotel. However, County Judge Ed Emmett is still skeptical and plans to question the financial viability of the plan.
