Bubble Zone Update

The City Council passed the Bubble Zone ordinance yesterday by a vote of 28-13. It will go into effect November 17 unless Mayor Daley vetoes it.

Since last week, we've been encouraging people (regardless of where they live) to call his office and ask him to oppose it.

You can — nay, should — make your voice heard by calling 312-744-3300 between 8:00am and 5:00pm CDT.
