    Two Chicago alderpeople have introduced legislation to prevent large sums of the city’s federal pandemic relief funds from being used without City Council oversight and consent.

    Alds. Bill Conway (34) and Scott Waguespack (32) said the legislation they introduced, which would require the City Council to approve any allocation of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars if the allocation was larger than $1 million, was spurred by Mayor Brandon Johnson’s spending of nearly $100 million late last year without notifying the council.
