It looks like President Obama will sign a bill that eliminates federal money to help finance political party conventions.

A bill passed by the House last year and the Senate this week would use those subsidies for pediatric medical research.

Democrats and Republicans each received about $18.2 million for their conventions in 2012.

A White House official told The Dallas Morning News that Obama plans to sign the bill.

The News notes: "Dallas is one of eight cities vying for the 2016 Republican National Convention. The party requires host cities to raise at least $50 million, and the $18 million hole adds to the burden."
