Chicago coal ordinance to be reintroduced

An ordinance that will effectively shut down Chicago’s two urban coal plants will be reintroduced at the city council today.

Alderman Danny Solis and Joe Moore announced this morning that the Clean Power Ordinance, which would require major pollution reductions at the Crawford and Fisk power plants, now has 31 co-sponsors, well beyond the 26 votes it needs to pass.

Reporter Kari Lydersen is covering the meeting — check back later today for updates.
