By adding a tax onto hotel room rates, generally you are getting visitors from outside the region to pay for the Arena.
Fortunately, you as a traveler have a choice wether to stay at those hotels and pay the tax or stay somewhere else and avoid paying the tax.
This is whY I'm generally in favor of user taxes, because it gives people a choice.
it would be interesting to see just how much money over time an arena would generate for sacramento. My guess would be at a game if you asked forks to raise their hands as to where they live, ie city of sacramento, placer county el dorado county, even olk yolo
you would fine Sacramento way down cause the rich folks who can afford tickets probably live out in the county. unless the arean would generate lots of money it might not be fair to ask the sacramento tax payers to fund the arena
I guess the way to do it would be to tax each ticket for whatever event cause that would cut out where you live
