CHICAGO (CBS) — Mayor Rahm Emanuel suggested he was not all that concerned that aldermen had balked at his proposed ethics reforms for the City Council.
WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports the Rules Committee voted 25 to 3 to table the proposed ordinance, but the mayor suggested the overall issue is not dead.
“I didn’t expect everybody to take what I said and Xerox it. On the other hand, I expect them to hue to the goal of making sure that we hold everybody in public life accountable,” he said. “So there might be changes, and there will be. We’ll look at them, but will not compromise our goal.”
