Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s proposal to give away $12.5 million in prepaid gas cards and transit cards is set to face a City Council vote on Wednesday, nearly one month after the mayor announced her so-called transportation relief plan. Lightfoot’s proposal has undergone a barrage of changes in an attempt to ease aldermen’s qualms about equity and spending taxpayer money on gas.
But it’s unclear whether the tweaks will be enough for Lightfoot’s proposal to gain the required 26 votes the ordinance needs to pass following a tight committee vote last week.
