DENVER (AP) — The city of Denver is forming a committee that will look into bidding for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

The committee will present findings to mayor Michael Hancock and Gov. John Hickenlooper, who said Friday the idea of a bid is worth taking seriously.

The International Olympic Committee awarded the 1976 Winter Games to Denver, but the city later turned them down. IOC president Jacques Rogge said this year that the history would not have a bearing on a future Denver bid.

The Reno-Tahoe area is also considering making a run at the 2022 Games, though the U.S. Olympic Committee is not committed to backing an American bid; the USOC wants to resolve a revenue-sharing dispute with the IOC before committing to bids.
