    Spouses of first responders who die by suicide or drug overdose will be eligible for city death benefits under an ordinance set for a vote on Thursday.

    A proposal to repeal a controversial speed camera crackdown is finally set to meet its fate on Thursday, potentially burying the protest ordinance for good after months of delays.

    Ald. Anthony Beale’s (9) ordinance (O2021-1227) to repeal the city’s 2021 rule allowing speed cameras to fine drivers who exceed the speed limit by 6 mph near schools and parks is one of more than a dozen items set to come before a 10 a.m. meeting of the City Council Committee on Finance on Thursday. The committee is also scheduled to take up an alderman’s proposal to expand death benefits for the spouses of fallen police officers, create the city’s first new tax-increment financing (TIF) district of the Mayor Lori Lightfoot era, approve nearly $40 million in new TIF funding for CTA infrastructure projects and more.
