Commissioners approve Pappas-backed ordinance to expose TIF ‘shadow governments’
Cook County leaders voted overwhelmingly on Monday to advance a proposal by county Treasurer Maria Pappas to require taxing bodies across the county to submit detailed reports on how they use tax-increment financing.
Commissioners voted 15-2 to approve the ordinance (21-1048) during a meeting of the county board’s Legislation and Intergovernmental Relations Committee on Monday, lining it up for a final vote by the full board on Thursday.
