The United States Olympic Committee met with Houston city and business leaders Monday, KPRC Local 2 reported.
Officials said they are looking for a bid that is privately financed and puts athletes first. They said they do not want any fee to the city or taxpayer money used.
The committee will also visit Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
They will look at all five cities and then make a decision on one of those cities, or none of them.
The committee has until March 31, 2007, to decide if the United States will try for a bid for the 2016 Olympics.
