The U.S. Olympic Committee announced today that it had eliminated Houston and Philadelphia from consideration for a 2016 Olympic bid, leaving just Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Milwaukee is expected to play a role in Chicago's bid possibly as a secondary city that will be able to accommodate minor infrastructure and lodging needs.  

The three finalists will have to submit more detailed plans by the fall, after which a USOC evaluation commission will review the revised plans, visit cities and make an official report.

Each city then will make a final presentation to the USOC board of directors.
