    Chicago Treasurer Melissa Conyears-Ervin is joining a handful of aldermen to introduce a City Council ordinance on Wednesday designed to forbid the city from investing approximately $6.7 billion in assets with a list of major fossil fuel companies.  

    The measure was among dozens of new ordinances and resolutions introduced to the council this week, including a new plan to give the City Council independent legal representation, a call for the city to consider loosening COVID-19 rules for people who have already been infected and an agreement advancing a plan to open west access to O’Hare Airport.
