  • Ald. Rossana Rodriguez (33) tweeted, “Today @taylorfor20th and I introduced a Res. calling for all of aprox 1.9B in funds from the ARA plan to be allocated towards healing and recovery. 281M in CARES discretionary funding were given to CPD and $68 million was unspent at the end of 2020. We need to fund care.”

  • Ald. Maria Hadden (49) tweeted about the Affordable Requirements Ordinance: As the lead sponsor on the Chicago Inclusive Housing Ordinance with @chi_housing, I know that the ARO reform being passed today is a big improvement from what we had. It's also not strong enough on some of our biggest unmet needs,” she wrote.
