Cab Fare Hike
The question did not specify how much to raise the rate for taxi cabs in Chicago. Aldermen put the question on the ballot only as an advisory measure, so a yes vote would not have meant a fare hike.
Chicago cabbies seeking a 22 percent fare hike will get a City Council hearing on their request, but not for six to seven months.
Chicago City Council committee is meeting Thursday to consider an increase in cab fares.
