CAN TV Ordinance Update

Posted by Mitchell - September 1, 2004 (entry 227)

The ordinance to help fund CAN TV might be up for a vote today. Sources tell CMA that there is probably enough support to pass the ordinance; the question now is, will the ordinance be allowed to come to a vote? A manueuver could throw the ordinance back into committee and delay the vote yet again, but if that happens the delay hopefully won't be very long.

Stay tuned for more information as developments break. Thanks.

Update: It appears that the ordinance has been delayed once again, this time to a vote on Wednesday, September 29. Read more here.

More Details: A formal deferral took place today at the Chicago City Council hearing. The actual action, referred to as a "Defer and Publish", was enacted by Aldermen Burke and Beavers. This delays the action one final time to September 29, when the Council will come to a vote on this ordinance.
