Mayor Lori Lightfoot Confident Her Air Pollution Plan Will Pass Chicago's City Council, Despite Delay

"Mayor Lightfoot's planned to increase environmental regulations on industrial developers has stalled in the City Council. But despite the setback, the mayor says she is not discouraged. BBM political editor Craig Del Amore, with the story mayor like puts proposed crackdown on industrial polluters did not clear a city Council committee, partly because some aldermen feared it would discourage development and others felt it was taking some automatic power away. Mayor says it's not a power grab. This isn't about automatic prerogative or power. It is about making sure that residents are protected and that they have fair notice when somebody is coming into their neighborhood who potentially could endanger their health through air quality issues, And she says she has every intention of seeing the ordinance approved.

How Police Misconduct Affects Cities and Taxpayers Financially

"For months. Protests over the police involved killings of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and others reinvigorated an intense debate over policing. Then the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, announced the city would pay $12 million to Briana Taylor's family and institute. A number of police reforms that highlighted an aspect less discussed the financial impact of police misconduct on cities and taxpayers. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. City's Khun face hundreds of lawsuits every year, charging, among other things, that police used excessive or deadly force or made a false arrest. Many times. Details of settlements are hidden behind confidentiality agreements. Law professor Joanna Schwartz studies how jurisdictions budget and pay for police legal expenses, she says. Although payouts Khun Total in the millions more often there in the thousands of dollars range and with an important determining factor, the number of cases filed and the number of dollars that are paid to resolve cases. Depends very much on where in the country you live claims against Big City Police Department's cost taxpayers about $300 million last year. One of the arguments in the ongoing protests over policing is that money for police could be better spent elsewhere and the clash between protesters and police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Means Minneapolis and other cities could face a myriad of legal cost. In Chicago. Several groups work to resolve cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted. Two years ago, a federal jury awarded $17 million to Jack Rivera and was considered one of the largest police misconduct settlements in the city's history. I say that was kidnapped by the Chicago police, Roger Li. 55 years old. Now Rivera spent 21 years in prison for a murder. He did not commit framed, he says, by a now retired Chicago gang crimes. Detective Rivera is one of at least 20 who have been exonerated in cases where that detective lead the investigations. They set out to rob You convict me for whatever reasons why Rather, it was just a con the community that they got the perpetrator. Or whatever it may be. It's still not right because taxpayers have to pay for it. Victim's family have to relive this all over again what they think it's closed, and it's just painful for everybody. Over the past decade, Chicago has paid about a half billion dollars for police misconduct. Rivera attorney Locke Bowman is the head of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern Law School, he says in cases where misconduct is clear, said he's often continue to fight against the allegations for months, sometimes years, and that could mean a hefty price tag for taxpayers. The decision to settle a case like that early ends up saving money for attorney's fees. And can result in Ah lower settlement before everybody gets dug in, and the price of the case goes up insurance policies and local budgets usually pay for judgments and claims. Jurisdictions hurting for cash may borrow issuing bonds to spread out payment, add bank fees and interest to investors. And those cost pile up with taxpayer's footing. The bill for police misconduct and as covert 19 devastates budgets nationwide. That could be a more frequent scenario. Chicago City Council Finance Committee Chairman Scott Waguespack says the city is working to break that expensive pattern and concentrating on police reforms so that we're not just saying, Okay, here's another settlement and good job negotiating it and move on, but really look at the deep seated issues within the department to start rooting out those problems. Activists argue tying police misconduct cost to police budgets could help prevent police wrongdoing as well as making police officers especially repeat offenders financially accountable. Currently so called qualified immunity rules shield officers from those costs that's changed in Colorado State representative Leslie Hair. It was the force behind the state's decision to drop its qualified immunity provisions. A new law requires officers guilty of wrongdoing to pay up to $25,000 and that if they were found to have acted in bad faith, violating someone's right, possibly ending in death. That they actually had to be held person responsible, just like anyone else who violated their policies and their obligations at their work with the law also allows officers to purchase liability insurance. Other jurisdictions looking to reduce police related lawsuits may follow that hybrid model of splitting settlement costs between cities and individual officers that just as victims or the families of people injured or killed by police misconduct. Continue to seek Justice. Cheryl Corley. NPR NEWS Chicago

"Over a number of years, thirty nine billion dollars. This is this is in Chicago. City council proved two point four billion in tax subsidies for two major developments in early. April protesters gathered at city hall, Channing against the deals critics of the projects in prosperous parts of Chicago and developers should pay for infrastructure improvement, not taxpayers. Forbes reports the city cities, tax payers burden is attached to unfunded retirement, obligations. Amassed over number of years, Chicago now. Thirty nine billion in retirement. Funds have been promised twenty eight billion in pension and eight hundred forty two million in retiree and health care benefits, have not been funded while lower in debt, we're Los Angeles and Philadelphia again, Los Angeles combined tax payer burden fifty six thousand Philadelphia's fifty thousand but we've told even with the unfunded of mandates in the pensions. Oh, what do you call them here in the city of Dallas that it's causing them? Major problems. Right. Yep. And so we never got that topic. So wanted to bring that one up other pulling out there that wanted to bring your way. The CBS news poll on trade and tariffs with China. Most Americans applaud the goals, but express some wariness about the tactics at least in the short term more than six in ten Americans favor trying to get China to change its trade policies towards the US. This includes large majorities of Republicans eighty four percent independence, sixty seven percent. And Democrats forty six percent. By the way, if Trump was in president, I guaranteed Democrats would be seventy five percent. Democrats, you actually believe. The China is fair on trading. The majority of Democrats actually believe I don't buy that. Yeah. That's I say more than this. This is a Trump effect more than six and ten Americans favored, try to get China to change its trade policies towards the US eighty four percent of Republicans. Sixty seven percent of independence and forty six percent of Democrats, too. I believe would be way higher. And Democrats Trump was a democrat president, I guarantee it would be higher as to gauge the impact of new tariffs imposed by the US and China. Specifically more Americans for C. Short term pain for the US economy than see a short-term upside. Overall over the long term Americans are split on, whether they think new terrorist will ultimately lead to better trade deals between US and China. Most Americans are unwilling to pay while being patient. Two-thirds of Americans say, they'd be unwilling to pay more for goods impacted by any tariffs while the US tries to renegotiate trade deals, those earning less money are the least willing to see costs go up. Along partisan lines six and ten Republicans are willing to pay more, which sets them apart from most Democrats, and independents, most of whom are not willing. Most Americans believe free trade has generally been good for the US that includes a large majority of Democrats. A slim majority of Republicans and most independence. So there you go. Slim majority of Republicans believed that free trade has been good for the United States. By the way, as we said, this is, maybe that's why Trump is out there promoting and talking about terrorists because. That's what he believes a significant portion of his base wants, even though that's what is not in the trade deals. It's been an amazing week because I agree with the direction. They're going, I agree with what they've done stating the fact that they're going to be, you know, they're all they're very close to having a deal to get rid of the steel and, and aluminum tariffs, and that, there have delayed the decision on the European auto tariffs. But. It's, it's amazing. Because when you look at the free trade deal, what Trump is promising and implying that he is doing to his base is actually what is not in the trade deals. That's that's amazing. And we've stated that all we, we've stated that, for the longest time we stated that with the Mexican free trade deals. Normally if Republicans believe we are wrong. They will tell us it's been silent. There's been people recognize that well APL is even the most loyal Trump supporters. We've had two of them on the air in the last week. Who's, who's speaking out if you think about the terrorist right now, who was that the that speaking out against the tariffs it really is? Industry. But if, if you're a populist, you're going to you're going to believe that protectionism care of are a good thing. You start seeing the negative effect of it and things change. But inevitably what happens? Well the Bush administration had steel tariffs bam. You go you go through these cycles where people go, we'll know it's a good thing. Pressure on China if it really brings about the change that is needed. Great as long as it's affected there. That is a very unique situation. It really is amazing, though, the number of, of Trump's supporters that, you know, that still believe that and we've to in the last week. That believed the Trump was doing one thing and were absolutely shocked to find out. He's doing the opposite. He's promoting is doing one thing and implying that, you know that because the tariffs are good and great. And we bring in all this money from China and China's having to pay for it. And people are cheering at the rallies, they believe that's the kind of trade deal. He's negotiating and it is not. It is Harris won't be in place forever. And if you're making the promise that based on the fact that you're promoting and saying that they're good thing. Look, look at all the positive things that they're doing look at the, the Q one GDP is a result of it look at the money going into the treasury. And people are cheering. Those people are expecting those tears to remain in place. Right. Well, they because they expect because Trump is talking and relating the terrorist directly to the trade imbalance. Right. But none of these free trade deals, Mexico, Canada, what we're negotiating with trying to share with Europe and China. None of them are about protecting American markets in order to even out the trade surplus, none of them. And he seems to be selling that to his base some of who still are buying it. We know because we had two of those calls this week that were shocked to learn out learn that wasn't the case. And then said, well, we don't support the president on that and seemed to be upset. Like would guys, you know it's, it's what's happening? And I'm happy. It's going that way because I want much more. I'm not a protectionist. It doesn't work government government controlling the capital, whether it's in the form of, of tariffs and subsidies to control and manipulate an economy to what they feel. They can do has never worked. So I don't care who's trying to do it. If if I if I was doing it I'd be against it. Because it's impossible for government to manage a, a free economy. I don't care who it is. But it's I'm happy with the Trump administration is going, I just wonder why especially in the beginning of the week. They were selling one thing. The president was seem to be selling one thing, especially at the rally where people were sharing like wowed. You realize that's not really what is in the trade deal. You're sharing the negotiation but we found so many people believe that the negotiation tactic of tariffs is what the president is selling inside the trade deals to lower the trade deficit. And that is not what's going on, right? So we'll see where that all works out. Also, Bill bar will be on Fox News later today. The interview apparently already with a mill hammer and he's explaining some trying to get answers to the questions and I found that a lot of answers have been inadequate and some of the explanations, I've gotten don't hang together. The sense I have more questions today than when I first started, so the more questions, he or the more questions, he asked the more questions, he has, and that would probably be the case because can you imagine peeling back this, you know, you're, you're peeling off layers of this onion? As you go along. And it gets worse and worse and worse. It's exactly the way we've approached it over the last couple of years, where we have a ton of questions and the American people deserve the answers. Eight six six ninety redeye. With.

"Beller at Wednesday's Chicago city council meeting the alderman said a farewell of sorts to mayor Rahm Emanuel. But some of them were saying goodbye to the council themselves. There will be several new faces in the council chambers, and maybe a new mood and even a new direction this weekend. We'll talk about the possibilities. Hello. I'm political editor Craig Delamore. And this is at issue. He is still in office for about four more weeks. But last week was mayor emanuel's last council meeting before handing the keys to the fifth floor over to mayor elect, Lori Lightfoot. But if the outra outcome of the mayoral run off was an indication that Chicagoans are ready for change the elections and run off for aldermen were to three aldermen were defeated outright. In the first round mostly multi-candidate races. Pro-jo Merano in the first war John arena in the forty fifth ward. And Joe more in the forty ninth. More one of the founders of the city council's progressive caucus was defeated by his only challenger a candidate politically to his left political activist Maria hadn't as the founder and director of our city, our voice nonprofit, and she had the backing of congressman chewy Garcia, the Chicago teachers union and SEI you among others ultimate elect hadn't is with us this weekend. Also joining us as fifteenth ward. Alderman, Raymond Lopez who want an easy reelection after one term in office. He won his election in two thousand fifteen after a rematch left. The boundaries changed enforced. Previous autumn. And Tony folks into the sixteenth ward. She lost her runoff, by the way, he's been involved in politics since he was a teenager. He was an airport worker at midway for twelve years. Rounding out. Our panel is veteran alderman Walter Burnett of the twenty seventh ward he was first elected to the council in nineteen ninety five. He worked for the county government for more than a decade before that part of it working for the then recorder of deeds Jesse white. He worked on the campaign that helped white win his current job as secretary of state. He's been mostly allied with Rahm Emanuel and gave the most heartfelt of the remarks this past week about him. And frankly, we've been to so many announcements and news conferences on the twenty in the twenty seventh ward, we thought that the mayor had a condo. Out there. Anyway, welcome to all three of you. Thank you. Thank you. Well. Through election victories retirements like Margaret Lowrie nose or autumn and not running again because of trouble with the feds like Willie Cochran, and Danny so lease that will be about a dozen new alderman, maybe more out of the fifty at least five we'll be declared democratic socialist joining alderman Carlos Ramirez Rosa in that category. So let me start with you the newest face. At least among these people on the council. What does all of this Maria hadn't say to you about the voters? And frankly, what do you expect from the council when I made my decision to run for office. It was based on a feeling and a personal opinion that Chicago's facing a lot of large problems. And by by large a lot of the folks that we had elected who'd been in office for many years had failed to fix them. It was a an opinion in a feeling that I thought that many Chicago and shared, and I think that the results of these elections showed that that's that's correct wherein a time where people are tired of some of the same old answers to the problems that we have and are willing to give new people a shot to try different solutions. Raymond lopez. You've had one term working in this job. What have you learned about how things work or don't that? You might not have thought when you when you first got there, and what do you expect with the new freshman coming? You know when I was elected for years ago. I believe we had thirteen freshmen that came in that in that. Class. And I think one of the challenges that I that I've noticed sometimes alderman collectively do not use their power fully, you know. Sometimes we advocate a little too much of our controls out to outside forces. And I'm looking forward actually to sing. Some of our newest members put their muscles to work and try to do what they want and push an agenda that is council driven. But I think the lesson for all of us in this election was no different. Is that at the end of the day? Whatever you're doing in city hall is great. But you always have to be responsive still connected to your communities to your ward. Otherwise as in the case of some of our colleagues, they will remind you that you still work for them. And if they have someone who feels more connected to them you will be replaced Walter Burnett. We're hearing so much talk about the news stronger. Independence city council. Eww. I've been around long enough to have heard such talk before is this. New reality or wishful thinking. Well, I mean as you always have new Ottoman Guinea elected every lection season. You know, at the end of like, my colleague just spoke is all about taking care of your ward. You know, what automobile gonna learn even as they try to get into groups sometimes it because competitive and trying to get resources for your ward. And sometimes you may have to compete against guys on the group with right? Because especially in trying times when there's not a lot of resources to go around. And and and so in order to bring those resources back to your community you have to figure out a way of positioning yourself. So that you are able to get those resources and bring it back to the community because at the end of the day, most of the time most people your community only thing they care about is their community. So I think is going to be a big learning curve for all of us, actually because all of us are going to have to deal with a new administration. We all are going to have to learn how to deal with this administration and how to be able to agree to disagree. Right. And and also to be able to get things for your community. And that's going to be the challenge. I mean, you know, when when new guys come to the table, I think I'd try to tell new guises. But then today people in care what you can do it. You can't bring anything back to your community. They going to feel like you didn't do anything. They don't they have them. Don't even look at the news and see all the protests, and all of those things that you doing in city hall what they see as was so named block and. That first year of council if you wanna get stuff develop it takes about three to four years to get things develop. Right. So if you fight and mess around and your first year about a time, it's time to run again. You may not have anything done and people will be looking at you. As like, what did you do? Right. You know, one one of my favorite quotes was was a things from a peanuts cartoon, Charles Scholtz, and I shouldn't say favor because it's kind of it's kind of scary. But there is no heavier burden than great potential. And I mean, I'll toss this one to you Maria Han our expectations for you and the other freshman class such such as it is so high because of the the real high emotion that there was in this this election. I do think that people have a lot of high expectations though, I imagine that on award by ward basis there no higher than anytime. We elect a new person I know that having a head to head race in February election, I felt a lot of expectations not just from the community members. Right. The residents who were volunteering like we had over a thousand volunteers. On my campaign. We engaged people who didn't normally vote, you know, folks, who hadn't voted before who aren't registered and a lot of what I heard from people was while I know you so I trust you, and they'll that comes with expectations of what they what they want me to do once in council and also there were also the added expectations from the other candidates at the time of knowing that I had head to head race and really hoping that I would win. So some of some of us that had similar platform similar backgrounds or issues, and I I'm managing those expectations. The same way it did in the campaign, which is just being really open keeping communications going making sure that I'm bringing residents and community members with me on this learning process knowing that it is a learning process and trying to pace myself on you know, what are the priorities of what I need to get that. So that I can be good Representative in city council for them. Raila opus how how long did it take you to to really feel like you had a handle on on especially what's in the war? You know, I had the benefit of being elected democratic committeeman in twenty twelve. So I had to kind of like a leg up on most incoming freshmen in my group who were just elected as a straight alderman because I had already been dealing with a lot of the wards issues. And in particular, you mentioned when the remand happened in alderman, folks shifted her attention on the sixteenth ward. I became quite literally the only elected official left in the ward. So we kind of knew from a we had a a running start. If you will we already knew where all the bad houses were all the bad actors, and we're all the good organizations and partners were, but I think coming in as alderman, that's a whole totally different ball game. Because now you've got to one you've got to get past the election. You've got to now start reaching talking to different people, which is actually I was excited to be here with alderman head because I know she was involved with my opponent. But again, those that was that was then and now we have a city to worry about. And I think that as we look, you know, she's correct? You have a lot of expectations when you come in that you have to try and manage because everyone has so much emotion that you're trying to temper the emotion and transform it into passion. So that evolves into commitment towards an end goal as opposed to just being over. Run with emotion and being too emotional to get anything accomplished is in the end that doesn't serve anybody. And that usually, you know, my experience it took about a year and a half two years. I actually had one of our more veteran colleagues more veteran than alderman Burnett. Tell me, you know, your first term just sit down and be quiet. And as you know, I failed miserably in that one. I would give the same same advice. I would never give that advice to the new alderman now because I don't think the Chicago electorate wants alderman that sit back. They wanna see that passion for the issues that they're facing. But at the same time they need to see metrics that prove that you're actually accomplishing goals associated with those emotions. And by the way, any of you can jump in at any time on this as we as we go through. Vernet how much of what you can do depends on the raw material? That's in your ward. For example. I mean, you got award that has some amazingly rich resources and some and some areas that are the you know, that are struggling or at least the people in them are struggling to get the day of their daily needs and balancing all of that. But then they're they're going to be wars where it's all one way or the other. Yeah. Well, you know, what you I mean, my world was not always liked that a main has been twenty four years. But you have to build it up to be like that and the way to build it up to be light. That is utilizing your public resources, you know, and and one of the good things about being an incumbent is that you have relationships, you know, across all government agencies, right? You'd have relationships and Springfield and sometimes in the White House. So you need to bring tax dollars and things to detail. Like, I was just at a meeting less last night trying to get some affordable housing building. They need funding from the federal government. They need some tax credits from Springfield all those things. So call JB's people last night statement on some tax credits. You know, I mean, so those relationships are helpful when you've been around. But but but if you don't have new JV Pritzker before you knew JV Piscopo before he met his wife. That's right. Before he married his wife. Yes, I did hear..

"Was arrested in his car because he apparently had reported it stolen, despite the fact that they have this odd relationship. And I think you know, the fact he lost that race to to one. And I think it surprised all of us. But I also think that that particular bit of scandal really resonated with people. Why would talk to just regular people people not to tune into politics? And there was something odd about it that everybody said, hey, what's the real story there, and it was one of those water cooler things, I think people just paid attention to it hurt. I feel like there's this in in politics right now. Especially democratic politics were seeing this sort of resurgence of of activism of progressivism, whatever you wanna call it. And certainly some of these automatic candidates embody that I know that especially when you're going up against, you know, the quote unquote, machine of Chicago, these candidates sort of like tout that the next mayor whoever she may be. The mayor the new mayor going to have to deal with maybe this this resurgence of progressive politics of of activism in the Chicago city council, which he can't always say about the Chicago city council rights more of a rubber stamp for the mayor than anything. Like, what do you think? Well, I think you're talking about two different issues here. I think there's the progressive movement within the Democratic Party across the country. As a response to President Trump. And so, yeah, you're seeing people on the left have much louder voices and much better chances of winning election, especially in heavily democratic district. Which of course, most of Chicago are most of the wars are heavily democratic and probably all the wars are heavily democrat, right? Yeah. Exactly. Although there isn't really a strong Republican presence infrastructure. There's no organization here. So it's really hard to say there are democratic candidates here that are probably more fairly conservative and other parts of the country would run as Republicans. So there's the one issue of progressivism just being in right now, and a lot of centrist, Democrats, including Chicago are having to deal with challenges from the left. The other issue is what you're talking about with the insiders, and this is definitely an election cycle in Chicago where everybody wants to be a progressive the word a few years ago when rich daily was mayor and the feds sniffing around city hall two thousand five thousand six two thousand seven election. Everybody wanted to be a reformer. Now, the buzzword is progressive. So both of the mayoral candidates who are left for the runoff. You're gonna see try to out progressive each other. Scott. What do you think about that? Yeah. I think that's right. We're also seeing it nationally. You know, you're looking at the early stages of the presidential campaign, the democratic primary in you're seeing the voters are the candidates embraced those types of voters in those types of policies.

"Ordinance ensures that all hotel workers who work alone and guest rooms and restrooms are equipped with panic buttons this is so important for hotel housekeepers because these women work alone they're isolated an intimate environments and in bad in of a bedroom the chicago ordinance also requires hotels to establish a written antisexual harassment policy that specifically addresses sexual harassment by guests and perhaps most importantly the ordinance protects all of us hotel workers from retaliation where we come forward to complain about sexual harassment from guest we celebrated a major milestone in our campaign the hands off pants on ordinance was unanimously approved by the chicago city council this past october i'll never forget the cheer that went up in the council chamber when we realize we had one i've already seen changes in my hotel not long ago a co worker of mine over me discussing the campaign and at that point right then and there she confided that she was currently being harassed by guess she felt so uncomfortable she was afraid to leave work at night she couldn't confide in anybody she didn't think anybody would believe her but together as a group we want to talk to the hotel security they escorted the guest out and he was not permitted to return their young server was only a few months into the job and i'm so glad that at that moment she felt that she could speak up and someone would listen i'm proud of what we've accomplished in chicago passing the hands off pants on ordinance is powerful it's much needed it's a message for women in hospitality that we're being heard and we're being seen strong enforcement of this ordinance is critical i have hope that together we can transform the culture of the hospitality industry so that all women all workers are treated with respect and dignity.
