    2 measures, both handily defeated by voters. One measure would have required a supermajority of city council votes to approve the use of city-owned land for sports or entertainment facilities. It was defeated 64-36 percent. The second measure, effectively a referendum proposing to stall or delay the expansion of the Austin Convention Center reconstruction with a cap on its revenue from hotel taxes, was defeated 56-44 percent. Turnout was 15 percent.
