Chicago: The Devil is in the Details

Overwhelming majorities of both houses of the Illinois legislature passed bills to restore an elected board to Chicago.

Chicago is the only district in the state that does not elect its board.

The different bills must be reconciled.

However, there’s a trick clause in the Senate bill.

The Senate bill says that the first election would be held in 2023, at the end of Rahm Emanuel’s third term (which he has not yet won.) He is in the middle of his second term.
